The tear groove refers to a groove that starts from the inner corner of the eye and appears on the nose side of the lower eyelid. It is caused by the atrophy and drooping of the soft tissue of the lower edge of the orbital septum. Some people can even extend to the cheek. Due to the contrast between the depression of the tear groove and the surrounding skin, the lower eyelid tissue looks a little bloated and protruding, which can easily be considered as a bag under the eyes, but in fact it is just the illusion that the tear groove becomes deeper.
The tear groove is generally congenital, and people with thinner eye skin are often more obvious than ordinary people. However, the tear groove is usually not obvious when they are young. This is because young people have more subcutaneous fat and tighter skin, so they only have a vague outline. However, with age, the subcutaneous fat gradually shrinks, the skin becomes thinner and sags due to the decrease in elasticity, and the tear groove on the inner side of the lower eyelid becomes obvious, and the “eye bags” appear.
2. Main types of tear grooves
For those with weak tear groove ligaments and no eye bags, but with sunken skin, you only need to inject hyaluronic acid into the tear groove. The hyaluronic acid can be fused with the original hyaluronic acid in the tear groove. Swelling, the tear groove will bulge and flatten.
- Mild tear groove: If the tear groove is recessed because the tear groove ligament is relatively strong, and even a little eye bag problem has occurred, it is recommended to treat the eye bag first and relax the tear groove ligament. The scarless eye bag surgery can be performed to remove the eye bag fat from the conjunctiva. While relaxing the tear groove ligament, translocate the eye bag fat to fill the tear groove.
- Moderate tear groove: If the tear groove is recessed because the tear groove ligament is relatively strong, and even a little eye bag problem has occurred, it is recommended to treat the eye bag first and relax the tear groove ligament. The scarless eye bag surgery can be performed to remove the eye bag fat from the conjunctiva. While relaxing the tear groove ligament, translocate the eye bag fat to fill the tear groove.
- Severe tear groove: This is not only a problem of obvious depression of the tear groove, but also accompanied by severe eye bags, loose skin, obvious fat loss, etc. Often only relying on removing the eye bags and filling the tear groove can not completely solve the problem, and it is also more difficult. , At this time, comprehensive treatment is required, which must be combined with facial lifting items.
In general, to remove the tear groove is generally the method of injection filling
Method 1: Hyaluronic acid fills the tear groove
The tear groove is concave. The best way to smooth the tear groove is to fill it. The tear groove filling is usually filled with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is directly filled into the concave part by injection. The operation time is short, the recovery is fast, and the effect is immediate, and even OK. Play the role of hydrating and moisturizing.
Hyaluronic acid is injected into the tear groove in the form of fillers to swell the skin, smooth the collapsed skin, and make the eyes look fuller and fuller. Hyaluronic acid has a variety of molecular weights to choose from. In order to achieve the ideal cosmetic effect, professional doctors will choose hyaluronic acid with different molecular sizes and different skin depths to apply.
The advantage of injecting hyaluronic acid to fill the tear groove is that the injection time is short, generally only half an hour can be completed, and the postoperative recovery is very fast, without any side effects, and the effect is natural and beautiful.
Whether it is tear grooves, tear groove dark circles, or vascular dark circles, hyaluronic acid can be used to fill it, and some people inject hyaluronic acid to make the apple muscle under the orbit look full.
