Dermal fillers are injectables used by many medical and cosmetic professionals for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the facial areas. They may also be injected into the hands to add volume and reduce an aged appearance. However, dermal fillers are also used in other ways, including under the eyes. Dr. Cynthia Cote of Maple Valley, WA is here to help with tired, aging eyes by using dermal fillers for tear troughs.
Understanding tear troughs and how they impact one’s appearance
The tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek. Due to genetics, aging, or skin laxity, patients may experience deep and shadowed appearance to these areas. Dark circles can appear, causing patients to look more tired than they really are, and a sunken appearance can also contribute to an aged look. The hollowing caused by volume loss can easily be addressed with dermal fillers in the tear troughs.
What are tear trough injections?
To add volume to the tear troughs, Dr. Cynthia Cote of MD Cote in Maple Valley, WA may suggest hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These are fillers that are a gel-like consistency that add volume directly where it is needed to smooth the skin and reduce deep hollows underneath the eyes. These injectables help in attracting water molecules to plump the skin where it is injected. In doing so, patients can reduce the hollows underneath the eyes and achieve a more rested and youthful appearance with just a few injections in our dermatology office.
