Tear Trough Fillers for Asian Patients

With the advent of new, safe injectable treatments to improve facial features and skin appearance, anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers are now popular among men and women of all ages and ethnicities.

The tear trough treatment, in particular, has recently gained popularity because the procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive. However, only advanced aesthetic practitioners should perform it: great expertise is required to identify how to give patients the best results based on their facial features and expectations. Research confirms that the indications and patterns for use of injectable treatments may vary among patients based on their unique facial features.

Tear trough fillers for Asian Patients

There are structural and anatomical features that are specific to Asian patients and require dedicated aesthetic treatments. When it comes to Asian patients, the placement of the cannula to inject dermal filler is essential and must be based on each person’s features.

What’s the best way to treat dark circles in Asian women?

There are many ways to treat under-eye hollow and dark circles. A surgical option to remove skin and excess fat is the best long term, but this is an invasive procedure with a long recovery time.

Tear trough fillers are the best, non-invasive treatment to reduce dark circles, remove hollowness to the under-eye area, and create better skin quality. Both Western and Asian women are eligible for this treatment, provided that they rely on an expert professional, who can assess their case and help them evaluate the best procedure to target their concerns.


What causes dark circles for Asian women?

Dark circles are very common for women of all ages and ethnicities. However, hyperpigmentation under the eyes is more common in Asian patients. Excess melanin (the pigment which gives skin its colour) sometimes pools under the thin-skinned areas underneath the eyes. This is what makes that area of our face more prone to showing earlier signs of age, such as dark circles and hollowness.


How can tear trough filler help get rid of dark circles in ethnic skin?

Tear trough fillers can help with both dark circles and hollowness. By reducing the hollowness under the eyes, the filler brightens the skin. This makes it less likely for shadows to form under the eyes. The skin looks lighter, younger, and less tired.


Can tear trough fillers help with hyperpigmentation in Asian women?

There are some specific fillers that can potentially help reduce the signs of hyperpigmentation.

How do tear trough fillers for Asian women work?

Dermal filler is injected directly into the under-eye area via a cannula, which transfers hyaluronic acid into the skin to add volume and vitality.

Your doctor needs to be familiar with your anatomy and understand how to adjust their injection technique based on your facial features. This will ensure a smooth treatment and avoid the appearance of any lump. In some cases, the amount of injection needs to be modified to adjust for the difference in skin and orbital anatomy of Asian patients.


Is tear trough filler safe?

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural protein that our body uses to stimulate healthy skin. Fillers amplify collagen production into the affected areas, promote vitality and add extra volume and smoothness which looks natural and healthy.

This makes tear trough filler a safe treatment, which is less invasive than other surgical options.


What are the side effects of under-eye fillers for Asian women?

Tear trough filler contains hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in our skin and helps smooth wrinkles.

This is a safe and minimally invasive treatment, with a short recovery time. However, just like any other aesthetics procedure, dermal fillers carry potential risks or side effects.

Some of the side effects of under-eye fillers include:

  • Bruising or bleeding
  • Pain or itching at the injection site

These typically resolve in 7 to 15 days. More serious complications can happen after the procedure, such as signs of infection, severe pain, or filler forming into lumps.

Tear trough Filler for Asian women: who is eligible?

Tear trough filler is a safe treatment, but you might not be a good candidate if you have very thin skin in your under-eye area, or if you have any underlying medical conditions. Besides, patients whose dark circles fluctuate with factors such as bad sleep patterns, alcohol or salt intake may also not be a good candidate for under eye filler.

Dermal filler is usually not suitable for pregnancy. However, if you get pregnant after your dermal filler treatment, the procedure won’t cause any issues.
