Our eyes aren’t just the focal point of our faces. They convey to others how we feel, whether we’re happy, sad, energized, or tired. Unfortunately, because the skin around the eyes is so delicate and thin, it is especially vulnerable to age-related changes and is one of the first places where visible signs of aging emerge.
For many women and men, they begin seeing hollows develop in their mid-30s, some patients will even see them in their 20s if it's in their genes. By the time we reach our 40s, almost everyone has developed some “hollowing” under the eyes.
Many people prefer a non-invasive approach to keep themselves from undergoing surgery that may include complications. A hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm® Volbella, for example, can give a patient a result that is long-lasting and natural looking without surgery.
Tear troughs typically become more prominent as we get older, as aging leads to loss of volume and tissue laxity in the lower lid. A tear trough can appear even more prominent if a person has lower eyelid bags. It is possible for younger patients to have tear trough deformities, but it’s more common as one gets older. If an individual’s tear trough is deep enough, it can form a shadow that appears to be a dark circle. Patients with deep tear troughs often complain that they look more tired and older than they really are.
There’s a natural depression that follow the curve of the eye socket, travelling from the nose around the underside of the eye. It’s referred to as the ‘tear trough’ as that’s where your tears gather. As we get older, skin loses its natural elasticity. We also lose volume from the upper and mid face as the underlying fat begins to shrink and sag. This sagging of the delicate skin under the eye causes dark shadows and bags; impossible to hide with concealer or makeup and making us appear old and tired.
Treating dark circles and deep tear troughs makes a dramatic difference in your appearance. However, the texture of Juvederm Volbella, makes it a good choice to improve this area non-surgically using multiple injections, placed above the orbital bone. Volbella gives an immediate result as the shadows are ‘plumped out’ for a naturally rejuvenated face; a fresher look and a far more ‘awake’ appearance. Immediately, you’ll look more rested, energized, and revitalized.
