What is a dark circle (tear trough deformity)?

A dark circle is medically known as the tear trough deformity.

It is the groove or valley that begins at the inner corner of your eyes and travels down and out across your cheek.

It is a natural groove that is present in everyone. However, in some, this groove is deeper and is often seen as dark circles under the eyes.

It makes one appear old.

How can a filler injection correct this?

The filler is a volumizer and it can be used to fill the groove, the tear trough.

Appropriate filling of the tear trough will correct the dark circles.

Overcorrection can produce a puffy appearance.

And sometimes the filler can be seen through the thin lower eyelid skin as a bluish tinge. This is called the Tyndall effect.

What causes dark circles?

Dark circles can be caused by many factors:

  • If you have deep hollowness (tear trough & Indian fold) >> filler injection or fat transposition surgery.
  • If you have eye bags >> eye bag correction surgery.
  • If you have loose and excess skin hooding lower eyes >> lower eyelift surgery.
  • If you have visible blood vessels >> vascular laser treatment.

If your dark circle is predominantly due to deep hollowness (tear trough deformity), a simple filler injection can help.
