The extension of the dark rings under the eyes is called the tear trough. It often marks a hollow line across the cheek, and gives a tired look to the glance and the face by emphasizing the nasolabial folds.

Tear trough treatment should always be performed before correcting the nasolabial folds because it will enhance facial harmony, relax the glance and improve the nasolabial folds with a minilift effect. Volume in the tear trough can be recreated in different manners:

  • Hyaluronic acid injections can complete a treatment performed to fill in the hollow under-eye area. However, the product use may not be the same because the tear trough area requires a more volumizing hyaluronic acid.
  • A lipofilling can also be performed. Lipofilling can be used to treat different areas at the same time since the surgery is performed in the operating room under anaesthesia, local or general.
