Before treating Under Eye Hollows by APT Medical Aesthetics
Get Rid of Under Eye Hollows with APT Medical Aesthetics
The eyes are often the first area of the face to show signs of aging including dark circles, wrinkles (“crows feet”), and under eye hollows (tear troughs). Under eye hollows in particular are caused by loss of fat in the lower eyelids, which leads to a tired, sunken appearance. As under eye hollows deepen, they may cast a shadow that becomes increasingly difficult to conceal with cosmetics. 

We can improve under eye hollows with non-surgical corrections using dermal fillers. Restoring lost volume in the cheeks may offer significant improvement, otherwise an appropriate dermal filler injected into the tear troughs can rejuvenate the under eye area. If fine lines and skin crepiness are also a concern, Selphyl® (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) will help to rejuvenate the thin, delicate skin under the eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions

My eyes look very tired. What can I do?

If it is volume loss that is making you look tired, then you may be a candidate for dermal filler treatment under your eyes. If you have undereye wrinkles or crepey skin, then platelet-rich plasma (PRP) might an option to consider. Both of these treatments can be combined for overall undereye rejuvenation.

I’ve had dark circles my entire life. Am I a candidate for under eye filler?

If it is volume loss that is causing your dark circles, then dermal filler treatment would likely offer a visible improvement. If your dark circles are hereditary, or not accompanied with volume loss, then you wouldn’t likely be a candidate for dermal filler.

What types of dermal fillers do you use in the tear troughs?

Because the skin under the eye is very thin and delicate, it is very important that a suitable dermal filler is chosen for this area. Some of the fillers we regularly use for the tear troughs include Belotero Soft, Belotero Balance, and Juvederm® Volbella which are all comprised of hyaluronic acid.

Is it painful to have dermal filler treatment under the eyes?

Not at all!  All of the hyaluronic acid fillers that we use for the tear troughs contain a localized pain reliever which keeps the procedure comfortable.
