The tear troughs are the depressions running from the nose up to the under-eye area. Over time, this area of the face tends to sag into wrinkles, and dark circles or hollowing may appear. Dark under-eye bags are a common concern. Many people feel that this area of their face makes them look older or more tired than they really are.
There are many causes of tear trough imperfections. Genetics, lack of sleep, lifestyle and ageing all contribute to sagging in this area. Sagging can be caused by the loss of facial fat in the under-eye and cheek area. It can also result from loosening ligaments. Some people are simply born with a shallow bone structure and lack of fat in this area. Because the skin here is quite thin, it has a tendency to show the effects of ageing sooner than the rest of the face. A tear trough treatment, a non-surgical approach, may alleviate these effects.Book an Appointment
