Tear Trough is the area below your eye where dark circles can appear. This can make you look tired and may occur even in younger people, as this is the thinnest skin in the body.
Dermal fillers injected in this area help restore the volume and this will allow the light to reflect better, getting rid of the dark shadows under the eyes.
Dr. Shternfeld has extensive training and expertise in this anatomically complex area with 20 years of experience in Ophthalmic Surgery. Special attention to detail is required here for best, long lasting results.
As this area is challenging, we are using the latest technology in vascular ultrasound to guide injections and also to help many people with poor outcomes from elsewhere to get their fillers dissolved. Some of these misplaced fillers have been in place for years and are causing chronic swelling, bulging and bluish discoloration.
Conservative, careful tear trough injections are very important for good long term outcomes. Some people are not candidates for this procedure and it is important to have a careful evaluation and consultation with a knowledgeable injector before any treatment.
