Refreshed & Revitalized
Many people come to the office complaining of dark circles under their
eyes, which make them appear tired. This may be due to darker skin in
the lower eyelids. When this is the case, there are lasers, which will help
to lighten the skin. However, most commonly it’s due to a lack of volume
in this area, called the tear trough. There are several fillers that can be
placed to add volume, with the safest being hyaluronic acids. One of
the newer HA fillers, Belotero, is specifically designed to be used in the
area, and usually lasts for up to a year. Filling in the tear trough creates
a smooth transition from the cheek into the lower eyelid, and will help to
decrease the appearance of the dark circle. The filler is put into the tear
trough in the office using topical anesthesia. There may be some bruising
and swelling which should resolve in a few days. For patients with
bulging fat pads in the lower lids, the fat can be surgically repositioned
into the tear trough. Loose skin can be removed at the same time to
create a smoother contour to the lower lid, and decrease the dark circles.
