Many of our patients who have deep under eye indentations (called tear trough deformity) are lacking in cheek support – and it takes a skilled physician injector assessing the patient’s individual anatomy to determine when that’s the case.
When patients are needing cheek support, we inject that first with one type of filler, and then fill the dark circles under the eyes, usually with a different type of filler. Under eyes are very soft tissue, and the cheekbones part of the face is not soft tisue, so it only makes sense these 2 placements would need different formulations of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in order to create a natural result.
In this particular case, we used 1 syringe of restylane in the cheeks, followed by 1 syringe of silk in the under eye tear troughs. She is shown immediately after injection.
Curious how many syringes of filler you’ll need?
