Tear Trough Enhancement

Trough-like hollows can be present in the area where the cheekbones meet under the eye, either due to volume loss with aging, or genetically. This can worsen due to loss of skin laxity, volume and hydration in the upper mid-face, as we age and create a tired look. Surgical interventions, namely blepharoplasty, have been performed for years to remove extra loose skin in this area. Not everyone is considered to be a surgical candidate, however. Dermal fillers are a great option in treating this area in most cases.

Risks & adverse effects

Risks and adverse effects associated with injectable fillers are minimal in general. The common immediate adverse effects are bruising, redness, swelling and itching in the injected area which will subside in a few days. Much less commonly there may be eruptions, skin sores or infection at the injection site. On rare occasions, hard persistent bumps or nodules may form requiring surgical excision or dermal fillers may migrate and spread to an area other than the one they were injected into.

How Does It Work?

The procedure is done after careful consideration of the facial anatomy, dynamics and proportions. Results are achieved by injection of hyaluronic acid fillers in multiple areas around the orbit to create support and refinement. At One Clinic MD, only highest quality hyaluronic acid fillers,  Juvéderm® dermal fillers, are used with extensive research and development, proven safety and effectiveness, and approved by Health Canada. For more information please refer to Juvederm.ca.
