Dark Eye Circles - The Frame of The Window of The Soul
Why Do We Get Dark Eye Circles
A common problem amongst patients is the presence of dark eye circles. These dark eye circles give off the vibe of tiredness and fatigue. Resting and using multiple make up techniques usually still fail to give adequate concealment.
They are a consequence of our anatomical attachments near the eye which exert a pull on the surrounding structures. With aging, our fat pads near the eye tend to go down, coupled with skin laxity and bone resorption, all these result in a hollowing near the eye which manifests as dark eye circles from differential casting of light. This area is also known as the tear trough.
What Filler Should I Use?
For this region, we prefer to use a light density hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane Refyne. The lighter filler allows the a smooth and natural appearance as the skin is the thinnest in this region. Hyaluronic acid filler achieves the best effect post treatment and gradually they get resorbed. Tear Trough fillers last between 1-1.5 years, depending on individual.
The fillers process take 30 minutes and numbing medication can be applied to make the process a smooth and comfortable one.
Do I Need Tear Trough Refinement?
The Restylane Range is a good choice. Usually a combination of a harder and a lighter filler gives a more even and natural result.
