Skin depressions formed in the area under the eye, including nasolacrimal furrows, are a very common problem, which is can caused by many factors. It is also a difficult issue to deal with, as even young people would have difficulty of their skin fully recovering and regaining the lost volume. A fast but reliable solution is using nasolacrimal sulcus fillers. It is an instant way to completely remove any visible depressions and skin lines and get rid of the tired look which loss of skin volume in the under-eye area can give.

From an aesthetic point of view, skin depressions below the eyes are very difficult to hide with makeup, as they tend to be fairly pronounced. Using dermal fillers, specifically based on Hyaluronic acid, as well as skinboosters, allows for rapid and highly effective, non-surgical eye rejuvenation. In the past couple of decades, fillers have taken over from traditional plastic surgery in regard to various aesthetic procedures, including improving the look and condition of the skin in the area around and below the eyes. This includes, skin depression filling (like, nasolacrimal furrows), but also, wrinkle smoothing with skin boosters and dark circle treatments using specialized skin solutions.

What causes nasolacrimal furrow

Skin problems in the part of the face below the eyes are not isolated. In many respects, what causes skin depressions such as wrinkles and lines in other parts of the face, will adversely affect that zone, as well. As you would expect, the mail culprits are:

  • Aging – the nemesis of smooth skin, the natural aging processes, will ensure that your skin synthesizes less and less collagen and elastin and contains less and less Hyaluronic acid molecules to help it retain water.]
  • Stress – a shortcut to the formation of nasolacrimal furrows, eyebags, dark circles and various skin depressions, including in the under-eye area.
  • Lack of sleep – pretty much the same as stress, often correlated. Sometimes just a couple of weeks of improper sleep cycles are enough to cause the formation of permanent nasolacrimal furrows and other skin depressions in that part of the face.

The Role of Nasolacrimal Sulcus Fillers

Unfortunately, depressions of the skin below the eyes are of the most visible skin problems to appear in the late 20s and early 30s (although this specific dermal problem is not entirely age related). At the same time, aesthetic treatment in such a delicate area requires using the correct product. The under-eye area should only be treated with very soft and flowable dermal fillers. One of the main issues that dermatologists and licensed professionals face when working on this part of the face is avoiding blockage of the tear through canal or causing excessive bruising. When very soft HA gel is applied, it significantly lowers the risk. Very soft products like the based Neuramis or Glowing Fill New are recommended for application under the eyes.

The way that fillers for the under-eye area work is to add volume to the local skin, at moderate depth. They directly fill the skin depression, so to protect the tear trough fillers must be with low molecular weight and low viscoelasticity. Not only does this reduce the risk of bruising formation, but it also, helps to make the visual effect of the aesthetic treatments to be more natural to the eye of the onlookers.

Choosing the Right Filler for Tear Trough Correction

Brand reliability is a major factor when selecting the best filler for treating the area of nasolacrimal furrow. Obviously, premium brands like Stylage and Teosyal are an easy choice, but looking at the soft offers from Korean names like Bonetta Filler are also worth consideration. In general, established brands, offer years of R&D and proven quality. Lesser-known brands (mostly from Korea), could be a bit of a gamble, but some proper research should help to avoid any issues. Your dermatologist or licensed practitioner will most likely have a list of brands of under-eye fillers that they work with, so you can rely on them for the choice.
