Question: I’ve been told that fillers shouldn’t be used to treat tear troughs. Is this true?
Answer: Not true. But fillers to the tear troughs is an advanced technique and only an experienced Board certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist should be doing the tear trough injections. There are risks with any procedure. Fat injections and filler injections are commonly done to the lower lid tear troughs for treatment of hollowness or dark circles. I prefer Restylane as my filler of choice.
