What are Tear Troughs and How to Get Rid of Them

Ever wonder how to disguise those unsightly tear troughs under your eyes? Or even make them disappear? First, let’s talk about what they are. Tear troughs are grooves that begin at the inner corner of your eye and swoop down and out under the eye. They are often blamed for dark circles or “bags” that form under the eye and cause you to look tired and give the appearance of an aging face.

While dark circles are not permanent and are often caused by lack of sleep, tear troughs are still apparent even when you get enough sleep and harder to get rid of. Makeup can do a little to hide tear troughs, but most are prominent enough that they still show through. Here at Francesca’s Facelift in Las Vegas we offer a more long-lasting special technique with a simple, customized non-surgical treatment using dermal fillers.

Why do tear troughs form? As we age, changes in our face including natural decreases in fatty tissue, and loss of elasticity in skin and muscles of the lower lid cause the tear trough depression to become puffy or bulge. This causes the bags and shadowy dark circles that make a face look exhausted and much older than it is. Smoking, stress and other stresses can also add to this effect, making it even worse.

The good news is that you don’t need plastic surgery to fix tear troughs. Here at Francesca’s Facelift, we help out clients erase tear troughs and regain a youthful appearance with a specialized technique using dermal fillers that lift up facial skin that may have lost volume or elasticity as well as fill in unsightly hollows from the inside to make skin look younger. We use a variety of derma fillers of which have slightly different results allowing us to customize each client’s treatment to get the exact results they are looking for. Patients leave our office looking refreshed, rejuvenated and even years younger. And the results last for a year or longer.
