What is tear trough treatment?
The area between your lower eyelid and upper cheek is known as your tear trough. As you get older, this changes in appearance; it can become longer, deeper and more shadowed. Although this part of the normal ageing process, it gives the impression of being tired and sleepless.
Tear trough rejuvenation is a specialised non-surgical aesthetic treatment performed using a hyaluronic acid injectable gel. This replaces lost volume and at the same time retains skin hydration. Your practitioner may also suggest a treatment plan that includes strengthening the upper cheek to support the area as well as treating the tear trough itself for the best cosmetic result.
The quality of the skin in this area is another factor to consider. You may be recommended a treatment to improve the quality of your skin ranging from a topical treatment to laser treatment.
