Tear Trough Treatment - Mystic, CT
The skin beneath the eyes, or the area known as the tear trough, often begins to show signs of aging long before other areas of the face. Wrinkles, bags, and discoloration are just some of the imperfections that can make a person look aged, tired, and worn down. At her cosmetic dermatology practice, Dr. Daniella Duke offers a wide range of non-surgical treatments to enhance the appearance of this delicate skin. These cosmetic treatments address imperfections to revitalize your appearance so that you look more alert and youthful.
Those who are interested in minimizing the signs of aging from the skin beneath the eyes should contact us at their earliest convenience to learn more about the tear trough treatments available at our Mystic, CT dermatology center.
What Causes Under Eye Bags?
The skin beneath the eyes always seems to develop signs of aging faster than any other area of the face. Even as early as the late 20s, patients may notice a darkening of the skin in the tear trough, or a slight puffiness that is often described as “bags.”
It is not just a coincidence that the skin of the tear trough tends to age prematurely. This skin is more delicate than other facial skin. And underneath the tear trough skin, there are blood vessels and a lymphatic drainage system that can become stressed or strained as a person ages, especially if the person suffers from allergy or sinus problems. As these systems become strained, they can leak and create deposits beneath the eyes that are largely responsible for skin darkening and puffiness.
Tear Trough Treatments
By brightening and tightening the skin in the tear trough, patients can dramatically refresh their appearance. Without under-eye bags and wrinkles, a person will look younger and more alert. Fortunately, Dr. Duke offers many non-surgical under eye treatments that can improve the appearance of the tear trough, including:
- Platelet rich plasma therapy: This treatment uses the patient’s own platelets to improve the appearance of the skin. PRP injections stimulate the collagen to firm the skin, improve skin texture, and lighten dark circles.
- Laser treatment: We offer laser peel and laser spot removal. Each of these procedures brightens the skin and lightens discoloration to eliminate dark shadows from the tear trough.
- Skin resurfacing: Skin resurfacing eliminates layers of dead, damaged skin cells. Dr. Duke can resurface the skin beneath the eyes to reduce fine lines and lighten discoloration. We offer resurfacing through laser treatment, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, which allows us to meet a patient’s skin needs, no matter how minor or severe.
- Skin care: Dr. Duke offers two skin care products that are especially formulated for under-eye skin. These products firm and hydrate the skin to soften the appearance of fine lines, reduce puffiness, and address discoloration.
Dr. Duke will carefully consider each patient’s unique needs before recommending an appropriate tear trough treatment. Some patients may get the results they desire from a single treatment, while others may benefit from a combination of treatments.
