Are you frustrated because people keep asking you if you’re unwell or commenting on how tired you look? You’re not alone – hollowness and dark circles under the eyes can make anyone look like they’re unhealthy or tired! But not to worry, Syed Ahmad in Plano, TX offers a non-surgical solution to your frustration and it’s called tear trough correction.
What Are Tear Troughs?
The tear trough is the inner portion of the lower eyelid, and it’s a place most people never pay attention to. However, as we get older, fatty tissue under the lower eyelid and upper cheek areas decrease naturally. When this occurs, the skin and muscles of the lower lid lose elasticity, and they are no longer tightly secured in place.
The changes that occur can eventually cause the tear trough indentation to puff up or bulge out. When the tissue located under the eye pushes out, hollow bags begin to form and the area eventually starts to appear as shadowy, dark circles under the eyes. And regardless of how much makeup is applied, the face can still looked tired and unhealthy.
What Is Tear Trough Correction?
Deep tear troughs can develop at a young age due to heredity while others don’t develop until later in life as volume is lost at a more gradual rate. A great non-surgical solution to fill in this hollow area is using a dermal filler to make you look healthy and refreshed.
Tear troughs can be effectively corrected without the need for surgery. A dramatic improvement for tear troughs that are relatively deep can be achieved using tiny injections.
The Tear Trough Correction Procedure
This non-surgical procedure is typically painless and relatively short. A local anesthetic is used to help with patient comfort. Small amounts of hyaluronic acid will be inserted into designated areas until the desired result is achieved.
During the first few hours following the procedure, it is recommended that patients remain in an upright position to permit the filler to settle. There is little downtime associated with a procedure, and results are often enjoyed shortly after treatment.
If you’re tired of looking tired and unhealthy and want to look refreshed, call the offices of Syed Ahmad, MD, in Plano, TX, today to schedule a consultation. During the appointment, we will review the available options for tear trough correction and determine if the procedure is right for you.
