Tear Trough or Hollowing under the Eyes


Treatments to the tear trough and changes in the area under the eyes are available.

The tear trough refers to the groove that begins at the inner corner of your eyes and travels down and out across your cheek.

The area under the eyes is generally where the earliest signs of aging appear. It is here where we find the thinnest skin in our body. Age related loss of collagen accelerated by factors such as sun exposure and smoking result in the early appearance of fine lines and “crepey” skin.

After childhood, fat is lost under the eyes and hollowing develops. Common complaints include dark circles, bags, tired look and deep hollows – an aged look. Bone loss and sagging skin, protrusion of intra-orbital fat can add to the undesirable appearance.
