Q: I have a sunken look to my under eye area and I am looking for a solution to fill my tear troughs.
A: Your concern regarding the loss of volume in the tear troughs and cheeks is what drive many patients to seek a filler solution. You have several options to consider:
1) hyaluronic acid fillers as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, etc. which are effective for up to a year. These are all reversible if you don’t like the results.
2) Radiesse, for the cheeks, which will last for 18 months. Not reversible.
3) Sculptra, a volumizer that stimulates your body to produce collagen with results that last for two years. Not reversible.
All of the above options can produce excellent results in the hands of a skilled physician. The physician you see can help you decide which product(s) to use and areas to fill.
