Tear trough fillers Case 1018
A female patient in her thirties presented with a typical case of fat loss under the eye. The patient’s concerns are mainly the color and the bulge at the orbital level.
Dr. Alhallak suggested the Q-switch nanosecond laser under the eye to help with discoloration. The certified laser technicians used two passes using the Spectra Lutronic toning 1064 nm laser, 7 mm spot size.
After 30 min of resting, Dr. Alhallak used a 25 g blunt cannula to lay Juvederm Volbella HA fillers in three layers (deep, medium, and superficial). The blunt cannula gives the advantage of less bruising and a higher safety profile than a sharp needle. He also injected some Botox into the orbicularis oculi muscles.
