Tear troughs, eye bags and dark eyes patches are a cosmetic concern to many people. Tear trough is the protruding skin on the lower eyelid. As age cripples in, the skin starts to lose its elasticity and reduce in volume. As a result, the skin around the eye bags appears to be relatively bigger affecting the appearance of the face making you appear older.Tear trough correction is a method to treat the under eye hollowness. This condition is usually found in people who are above forty and aging. The tear trough correction method has become very popular as it yields higher success rates compared to other methods. Moreover, the results are visible in a very short period after the procedure.
