What causes Hollow Eyes?
Hollow eyes and tear troughs can be genetic and run in families. These are a combination of deficient fat beneath the eye, in the tear trough, and the skin can be pigmented or darker which can make eyes look hollow and tired.
Tear Troughs and hollow eyes can also be a side effect of the ageing process. As we age, we suffer fat loss causing a reduction of volume as well as a loss in bone density. This means that the eye sockets become larger, giving eyes the hollow look classic of those who are older.
By restoring the volume in the tear trough, both genetic and age related hollow eyes can be easily treated.
Treatments for Tear Troughs & Hollow Eyes
Firstly, using dermal fillers, you can restore the volume around the eye. By restoring the volume, you can reduce the sunken effect of the eyes. This is a very complex procedure and must only be performed by a highly qualified Doctor, such as Dr Rekha Tailor. We only use the FDA approved products by Juvederm and Belotero for filling around the eye area as it is clinically proven to be both safe and effective which offers the very best to our patients at Health and Aesthetics.
For pigmentation or dark areas related to genetic tear troughs, we would recommend using our cosmeceutical skin care range ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi. At Health and Aesthetics, we suggest combining the Fundamental 5 products with an eye cream such as Hydrafirm or Intense Eye Creme and other cosmeceuticals by ZO Skin Health. This will help to even the appearance of pigmentation and lift and tighten the skin around the eyes.
