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.
Non-surgical correction of the under eye hollows can be accomplished through the use of dermal fillers. Restoring lost volume in the cheeks may offer significant improvement, otherwise an appropriate dermal filler injected into the tear troughs can instantly rejuvenate the under eye area. If fine lines and skin crepiness are also a concern, Selphyl® (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) treatment will help to naturally rejuvenate the thin, delicate skin under the eyes.
