As we age, one of the changes which is commonly noticed and commented on is the appearance and gradual worsening of dark circles under the eyelids. This occurs due to the thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim. A band of tethering fibrous tissue called the orbitomalar ligament binds the skin underneath the lower eyelid to the underlying bony rim of the eye socket. In youth, due to the surrounding plump fat, thicker overlying skin and soft tissue surrounding this structure, this ligament is usually invisible. However, with age atrophy of the adjacent tissues and thinning of the skin occurs, leading to increased visibility of this deep attachment between the skin and orbital rim-the so-called tear trough deformity.
Various treatment options for the disguising the tear trough deformity exist but at Facetherapy NI, we use Teosyal Redensity II to plump up the tissue around the ligament (leaving the ligament intact). Using filler in this area is beneficial to clients who want a faster, more cost effective and non- invasive route than surgery!
If you’re bothered by any of the following concerns, then tear trough fillers could help restore your confidence: Shadowing under the eyes, visible fine lines around your eyes, deeper/dark hollows in your under eye area, folds under your eye area. Tear trough fillers can tackle all of these issues by restoring your skin’s natural hydration levels, so you look noticeably more youthful and less tired. Teosyal Redensity II is the only filler licensed in the UK specifically for the tear trough area.
