Tear troughs are grooves sitting between the lower eyelid and cheek. These unsightly grooves create lines or hollow junctions between the lower eyelid and cheek. This phenomenon happens naturally over time and often starts occurring in our early twenties. Tear trough lines can be improved without the need for surgery using tiny injections of fillers like Belotero or Restylane. Undergoing this type of treatment will improve complexion and minimize the appearance of tear trough grooves on the face. Here at Dr. Syed Ahmad’s medical spa in Plano, TX, we specialize in tear trough corrections. Before deciding on this treatment option, here are three things you should know.
Tear Trough Correction Is Safe
Tear trough correction treatments have been used safely for nearly two decades. Many studies have examined the safety and efficacy of Hyaluronic acid fillers when used for correcting tear troughs. Studies published in The International Journal on Orbital Disorders, Oculoplastic and Lacrimal Surgery have concluded that using Hyaluronic acid gel in treating tear troughs has excellent tolerability while posing minimal side effects or complications.
Tear Trough Correction Is Effective
Many patients have used tear trough correction treatments for reducing the unsightly appearance of these facial grooves. Most patients have expressed marked satisfaction with the results of this line of treatment. Typically, treatment is quick and the results are noticeable immediately. Hyaluronic Acid injections are known to dramatically smooth out the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles, so don’t be surprised if tear trough correction has you looking like you’re in your early twenties again.
Tear Trough Correction Is Minimally-Invasive
Traditional plastic surgery can sometimes lead to complications. On top of this, plastic surgery requires patients take time off of work to heal. Many working full-time jobs can’t afford to take time off to address their skin care needs. Tear trough correction using Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers is the perfect solution to this dilemma. Injections typically take less than 30 minutes to complete; meaning they can be performed on your lunch break! The best part about this form of treatment is that results will be noticeable immediately following treatment. Reducing the appearance of these grooves makes some appear dramatically younger.
