What is the hollow under my eye, or “tear trough”?

A natural depression under the eye is often referred to as a “tear trough.”It starts near the inner part of your eye (closest to the nose) and continues as an arc along the top part of the cheek. It creates a shadow that is sometimes confused with under-eye circles.

With sun exposure and aging, the following changes may occur in the under-eye region:

  • The cheek loses fat leading to less support for the under-eye area
  • The fat just below the lower eyelashes may increase in volume-causing a bulge
  • The “tear trough” region deepens and lengthens, distracting from the natural beauty of your eyes

What are the treatment options for Under Eye Hollows and the Tear Trough Region?

Treatment of the under-eye region for tear trough improvement requires a skilled Physician experienced in the delicate tissues and anatomy around the eye. A very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula is utilized after topical numbing to comfortably perform the procedure and minimize side effects including potential bruising or swelling.

Injectable Dermal Fillers and Platelet-Rich Plasma are the mainstays of treatment for improving under-eye hollows. Not all fillers are created equal, and they all have unique physical properties that make them well-suited for specific areas of the face. Dr. Kesty is an expert in Dermal Fillers and Platelet-Rich Plasma, and after a thorough examination and consultation, she can make suggestions about how to artfully rejuvenate your eye area.

How do I get started treating my Under Eye Hollows?

At a Cosmetic Consultation with Dr. Kesty, she will take the time to do a thorough examination of your eye area as well as get to know you and your cosmetic goals. She will then suggest a treatment plan that may include Dermal Fillers, Platelet-Rich-Plasma, and Laser Resurfacing to achieve your desired aesthetic.
