Which Restylane is Best for Tear Troughs?

When it comes to treating the delicate area around the eyes, there are many different types of hyaluronic acid (HA) gel fillers available. From the Restylane family to Juvederm and Belotero, there are a variety of options to choose from. However, when it comes to under the eyes, Restylane is the most popular choice due to its tolerance to the injector. It is not too stiff and tends not to clump or cause discoloration, but it does not provide a great lift if there is a deep tear.The Juvederm family has newer fillers such as Volbella and Vollure (also known as Volift outside the U.

S.). These fillers cause less swelling than previous Juvederm products and are good choices for superficial (Volbella) and deeper (Vollure) injections under the eyes. However, there is a low incidence of inflammatory nodules (bumps) reported after four months with Volbella, which is something that has not been seen with Restylane or Belotero.Restylane also has its own range of fillers, including Refyne which is more “flexible” and can be beneficial in areas with a lot of facial movement (especially around the mouth). However, no benefit has been demonstrated over regular Restylane for the under-eye area.The thinnest and softest version of Restylane is Restylane-L, but it also has the highest swelling capacity.

This makes it less than ideal for thin skin under the eyes which does not cope well with significant swelling.Restylane is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that uses patented NASH technology to produce a soft gel by cross-linking hyaluronic acid molecules. It is biocompatible in nature and poses no risk of allergic reactions. It can be used safely and successfully in the lacrimal area.In many cases, tear filler is an effective way to treat wrinkles, hollowed out under the eyes, and dark circles. Restylane can be injected into the skin to treat tears, nasolabial folds, and other moderate to severe wrinkles.

It can also be used for lip enhancement treatments.Tear canal filling treatment is done in the office with an injectable called Restylane. The most commonly preferred dermal fillers at The Naderi Center include Restylane-L and Juvederm Volbella. During the tear filler treatment, a filler called Restylane is injected into the fragile skin under the eyes.The key to success with Restylane lies in the correct injection of the filler into the specific area under the eye. Results with Restylane are more natural, more consistent and more predictable compared to other fillers.HA fillers last less time in more dynamic and mobile areas such as lips but last longer in less mobile areas such as lower eyelid, tear ducts or nose.

If you live in Virginia or Maryland, The Naderi Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology offers tear correction between its services.
