Pre injection: This patient was troubled by the bags and wrinkles under her eyes but did not
want surgery. We discussed filler injections to the tear trough as an alternative but with less
improvement than would be expected with a more aggressive treatment.
Post injection: She underwent injection with 1 cc of Restylane® to the tear troughs bilaterally. She
was happy with the result. I would expect it to last 1-2 years typically. Not everyone is a good
candidate for this- the thinner and more translucent the skin, the more likely the filler is to show
through the skin.
