Do you look tired due to deep, dark circles under your eyes? This haggard appearnace may not be a result of allergies or loss of sleep. The circles under your eyes are called tear troughs and result from ageing. The bright youthful look of the area under your eyes is lost and dark troughs form because of loose, sagging skin and the shifting position of the normal cheek fat pads, among other things.
In the last few years, we are paying increasing attention to tear troughs when rejuvenating a face that looks tired and old. We use injectable, gel fillers to fill the under-eye depression or trough that produces the deep, dark, under-eye circles and tired look. The gel can be injected under the skin and just below the bone to lift the trough depression.
Most fillers used for this purpose such as Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm produce a natural looking result. Belotero, a relatively new filler in the United States, is an outstanding product for filling tear troughs: it is soft, lasts up to a year, and doesn't produce the blue tinge (Tyndall Effect) under the thin skin of the eye area that sometimes is visable using other fillers. In addition, all the above mentioned fillers can be rapidly dissolved with an enzyme. Rejuvenate your under eye bags and dark circles with a cosmetic filler and look younger and more rested.
