What Is Tear Trough Treatment?
Tear trough treatment is a non-surgical procedure that can help reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles and tear trough lines. It works by using dermal fillers to enhance volume beneath the eyes, which can help mask shadows and create a more youthful look.
Our tear trough treatment in Chicago has been designed to be both safe and effective. Our board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, Dr. Williams, has extensive experience in tear trough treatments and will use her expertise to help you see the best results possible.
Tear Trough Treatment Overview
When you come to our tear trough treatment in Chicago, you can expect a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Williams. During this appointment, she will evaluate your tear trough area and discuss your goals for the procedure. Once we have established an appropriate plan of action, tear trough treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete, and patients should see results within days after the procedure, and often even sooner. The entire treatment is typically well tolerated by patients, and at most may require local numbing to ensure complete comfort from start to finish.
Beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of introduction.

Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Non-surgical tear trough treatment can be an ideal solution for patients in a wide range of ages. Since it does not require invasive techniques or place strain on your body, it is open to more candidates than surgical procedures. The first step is to set up your consultation with Dr. Williams to discuss the results you would like to see. During your tear trough treatment consultation, our board-certified surgeon will discuss your goals and expectations so that we can provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
After the Treatment: Recovery
Most tear trough patients experience little to no downtime following treatment. You may experience some mild swelling or bruising, but these effects usually disappear within a few days. In comparison, surgical procedures can require up to several weeks of recovery and downtime. This treatment allows patients to see stunning improvements without interfering in their day-to-day lives. You can come in for treatment, and (in many cases) be able to return back to work or your normal routine right away.
After the Treatment: Results
Your tear trough treatment results should begin to be apparent as soon as your session wraps up. However, if there is minor swelling, it may take a day or two for you to really see the improvements provided by the treatment. As long as you follow all post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Williams, your results should last up to six months or longer. Other factors such as age and physical activity levels can affect the duration of results. The good news is that having a touchup treatment is generally just as convenient and quick as your first session, and can keep your results looking great.
