As we age, several factors contribute to the onset of tired-looking eyes. These include a decrease in bone density within the eye socket, shifts in the distribution of facial fat pads and key ligaments around the eyes, sagging of the surrounding muscles, and an increase in skin looseness. Collectively, these elements lead to the sagging of the tissue around the eyes, giving rise to the formation of hollows or depressions. Moreover, the sagging of the cheeks compounds this downward pull.
While a minor hollow beneath the eyes is typical, the concept of tired eyes emerges when the tear trough area becomes excessively sunken. The natural aging process initiates changes in the tear troughs from the mid-teens onward. Nevertheless, it’s important to grasp that a subtle hollow beneath the eyes is not an abnormality; it’s a natural characteristic. Even infants display a gentle hollowing in their tear troughs. The objective of tear trough filler treatment in our Melbourne clinic, is to mitigate the appearance of the hollow while retaining a natural appearance.
The aim of tear trough dermal fillers at Melbourne Laser and Aesthetic Centre is to alleviate the sunken appearance of the tear troughs while maintaining a natural contour. The goal is not to fully erase the hollowing, recognizing that “flawless” tear troughs are a phenomenon primarily seen in filtered images on social media rather than in real life.
A comprehensive approach to rejuvenating the tear trough area as we age entails broader mid-face revitalization using Dermal Fillers. Tear trough filler works well even for under-eye wrinkles. This approach encompasses both the cheeks and the tear troughs. The rationale for this lies in the fact that the cheeks provide vital anatomical support to the tear troughs.
By replenishing the cheeks with Dermal Fillers, the overall appearance and smoothness of the tear troughs are improved through a lifting effect. Once the cheeks are adequately addressed, a minimal amount of filler can be used to re-volumize the tear troughs.
