Dermal fillers for tired eyes

Glen Eden Medical | Grantham

The ageing process comes for us all. No matter how well we take care of our skin in our 20s and 30s, we simply cannot stop time from gradually degrading our skin quality. There are some factors that accelerate this process, however, including sun damage and smoking. Both of these lifestyle aspects encourage the premature breakdown of skin structures, but can they be remodelled? Let’s discover how dermal fillers help improve the appearance for tired eyes.

What are tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers are an advanced treatment that have become incredibly popular. They are a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment for ageing eyes, and they involve injecting the tear trough with hyaluronic acid gel which helps replace the lost volume brought about through ageing. It also increases hydration, softening your skin creating a more youthful appearance. Not only does it lessen dark circles, but it also plumps the skin so that it doesn’t rest atop of the eye sockets, helping the eyes to appear less sunken and hollow. In turn, tear trough filler helps your eyes appear more awake, wide, and brighter.

 

Why do dark circles under our eyes occur?

As we start to age the area underneath the eyes become more tired because of thinning skin. The changes in your appearance often present these dark circles under your eyes leaving a tired and exhausted look.

This thin skin can hug the eye-sockets too much, producing a sunken or hollow eye appearance. The ageing process doesn’t aid these either, as the production of collagen is stopped, and our natural reserves deplete over time to produce gradually thinning skin.

Even losing volume in the cheeks can pull down the skin in this area. Dark circles occur because the thin skin in the area becomes a little transparent. It shows through the dark blood vessels and muscles under the skin’s surface. Both of these natural occurrences can prematurely age you, which is why a lot of people seek treatment for their tired eyes, under-eye bags, and dark circles.

Fillers are a very effective and recommended option for people with tear trough hollows and under eye bags. The treatment helps the normalisation of facial contouring around the lower lid – cheek area and avoids the need for any surgical procedure.
