Dark circles and hollows around the eyes are a frequent complaint among men and women in my New York City private practice. The most definitive treatment for these issues is surgery: lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat grafting-- one of my favorite operations.
For patients who are not ready for surgery or who prefer a less invasive approach, injectable tear trough augmentation is a very powerful option. Using my signature metric-based technique, I layer hyaluronic acid based filler in the undereye area to lighten the appearance of dark circles, fill in hollows, and create a more youthful undereye appearance.
Tear trough augmentation takes a few minutes, lasts 1-2 years, and has no associated downtime. Results are immediately apparent but improve over the course of several weeks.
