Explaining the Basics
Patients that consult with us at Brisbane Skin frequently complain that exaggerated tear troughs or dark circles make them look old and tired. This is understandable, as one of the hallmarks of an ageing face is the areas around the eyes.
As we grow older, volume loss and tissue laxity begin to develop in the lower eyelid. As a result, the tear trough becomes more prominent. At the same time, ageing skin can lead to lower eyelid bags. They accentuate the depth of the tear trough and make under-eye circles appear to be even darker. Bags and puffiness under the eyes make you look older than you actually are.
Brisbane Skin Recommends
Low downtime laser treatments can easily rejuvenate the region under your eyes and get renew your tear troughs and dark circles to make you look fresh.
We also perform eye rejuvenation in conjunction with plastic surgeons. If need be, a blepharoplasty can remove excess skin from your eyelids, which when combined with intensive laser treatment for your upper and lower lids for tightening will give an immediate impact and reverse ten years of ageing.
Treating under-eye circles and too-deep tear troughs with dermal fillers has become a popular alternative at Brisbane Skin. It is an excellent choice for people who want a non-invasive solution to this facial ageing problem and want to avoid a surgical procedure.
Treatment with dermal fillers can correct the ageing hollow look that accompanies deepening tear troughs. The best candidates for this treatment
- Have good skin elasticity
- Have adequate skin thickness
While dermal fillers provide an excellent temporary response to deep eye troughs and under-eye circles, they are not appropriate for everyone. Our medical aestheticians are expertly trained and highly skilled at assessing the relationship of the orbital rim to the tear trough, a key factor in successfully treating under eye-circles with dermal fillers.
Some filler substances create a very conspicuous puffiness around the eyes that can last for months. Other fillers have been associated with poor outcomes and unwanted side effects. Our team at Brisbane Skin is skilled at determining which filler will deliver optimal results for any particular patient.
