Tear Trough Treatment FAQ

It’s not uncommon to develop creasing or depressions under the eyes as we age. Such hollowness begins between the ages of 30 and 35 and cannot be undone by assorted anti-aging creams. Dr. James Kojian was trained to use the celebrated Restylane filler to correct under-eye creases and hollowness, as it features the optimal density and consistency necessary to this area of the face. Restylane looks smooth and natural while lasting up to four years.

Restylane filler under the eyes is known as tear trough treatment. If considering this innovative treatment to achieve a more youthful appearance, review the following frequently-asked questions:


What Causes A Tear Trough?

A tear trough forms due to tethering of lower eyelid flesh to underlying facial bones. Tear troughs become more noticeable as we age due to loss of tissue laxity and volume. Resulting undereye bags make tear trough shadows even more obvious. Genetics, diet, lack of sleep, and stress all contribute to eye hollows.


How Is Restylane Applied?

Dr. Kojian carefully injects Restylane in the precise crease location, or tear trough. He emphasizes that only those with meticulous training in tear trough application should perform the procedure to avoid problems such as lumps, serious bruising, and other complications.


Is The Procedure Invasive?

One of the many things that make tear trough treatment increasingly popular is its non-invasive nature. No anesthesia or surgery is required to correct the problem, rather it is a “lunchtime” procedure. Taking time off work to recover is not necessary, nor will you deal with surgical scarring.


How Long Does The Process Take?

A tear trough treatment takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.


Does The Procedure Hurt?

Pain from tear trough treatment is minimal. Analgesia is rarely utilized.


What About Side Effects?

Side effects can include redness, bruising, and swelling. Working with an experienced physician such as Dr. Kojian seriously reduces if not eliminates the risk of side effects. If side effects do occur, they disappear within a few days.


Am I A Candidate For Tear Trough Treatment?

Dr. Kojian will let you know if you’re a candidate for tear trough treatment, though it is generally available to anyone dealing with eye hollows and dark circles, fat pockets underneath the eyelids, and similar issues. Tear trough treatment is available to both men and women.
