What causes Under Eye Hollows?
The words ‘You look tired,’ perhaps even more than the dreaded ‘Have you put on weight?’, are the ones no woman wants to hear. Though some women used to hear them all the time. Even after a good eight hours of a sleep. Why? Because they have dark circles and hollows under the eyes no amount of make-up or sleep can erase. Which have worsened over the years. Though lack of sleep can dehydrate skin, making dark circles more noticeable, the amount of shut-eye you get has little to do with dark circles. Skin appears even darker under the lower eyelid in those with olive and dark skin because skin is thinner in this area. Not only that, but olive and dark skin keeps producing pigment of the skin – melanin, which makes dark shadows appear deeper as the years pass. But, wrinkle shadow, which worsens with age, is a common cause of dark circles. Skin around the eyes ages faster than in other areas, partly because sunscreen is rarely applied there, but also because it is thin and doesn’t have oil glands or hair follicles. You eventually end up with sagging and a tear trough forms, along with darkness.
The tear trough is the line under the eye caused by sagging skin, drooping muscles and fat bags, which results in a shadowing effect, the hollows under the eyes and darkness around the eyes. And because the eyes it is the first place on the face anyone looks, as people don’t look first at jowls or smile lines, they will always be drawn to the eyes. If your eyes look tired, you will look tired too. Unfortunately any massage technique or creams or gadget will not help to get rid of it. It’s should be a suitable filler specially produced for this sensitive and demanding area. Because if filler will be too thick, it would make the problem worse and leave a result with lumpiness.
How are Under Eye Hollows treated?
At BioCell Clinic, we understand the impact that under eye hollows can have on one’s appearance, and we are committed to providing safe and effective solutions for our patients.
Under eye hollows, also known as tear trough deformities, can create a tired or aged appearance. Fortunately, dermal fillers can help restore volume and rejuvenate the under eye area.
Now, let’s delve into the specifics of the cannula technique and why it is a safer and more desirable option compared to the traditional needle technique.
The cannula technique involves the use of a thin, flexible tube called a cannula, which is inserted into the treatment area. This technique differs from the traditional needle method, where a sharp needle is used for injections. Here’s why the cannula technique is preferred:
1. Safety: The cannula has a rounded tip, making it less likely to pierce blood vessels or nerves. This reduces the risk of complications such as bruising, swelling, or injury to surrounding tissues. By navigating through the tissues, the cannula minimizes the chances of damage, ensuring a safer procedure overall.
2. Even Results: The cannula technique allows for more precise and controlled placement of the dermal filler. The cannula can be passed under the skin, distributing the filler evenly along the treatment area. This results in a more natural and harmonious outcome, avoiding the potential for lumps or uneven distribution that may occur with the needle technique.
3. Reduced Discomfort: The cannula method often causes less discomfort compared to the needle technique. The rounded tip of the cannula is designed to glide smoothly through the tissues, creating a more comfortable experience for the patient. Additionally, the cannula technique typically requires fewer entry points, minimizing potential pain or discomfort during treatment.
4. Minimal Downtime: Due to the reduced trauma to the tissues, the cannula technique generally results in less bruising and swelling. This means that patients can often resume their daily activities with minimal downtime. It’s a convenient option for those with busy schedules or who prefer a quicker recovery period.
