The tear trough is a common cosmetic concern that causes a hollow at the junction between the cheek and the lower eyelid. The term “tear trough deformity” refers to a periorbital hollow extending obliquely from the mid-pupillary line to the medical canthus. Depressions that are lateral to this area are known as nasojugal groove, lid-cheek junction, and palpebromalar groove. While sometimes caused by the natural aging process, tear trough deformity is more commonly caused by genetic factors and it usually starts in the patient’s 20s. Being the first thing that others notice, tear trough deformity can be a cause of distress and self-consciousness. Due to the infraorbital hollowing, patients with tear through deformity often have a fatigued and tired look (despite being well-rested). Tear through treatment is a complicated, hard-to-master procedure that requires extreme expertise. At the same time, practitioners performing the treatment should have a good u ...

Except for newborns and people with facial paralysis, most people have nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds are commonly known as smile lines, as they are most noticeable when a person smiles. As skin ages, it thins and sags, and nasolabial folds tend to become more pronounced.

Treating the Tyndall Effect
Any cosmetic procedure comes with risks. Complications can occur due to improper technique or ill preparation. A risk involved with dermal fillers is called the Tyndall effect. According to the Collins English Dictionary, the Tyndall effect (more commonly known by physicists as Rayleigh scattering) is “the phenomenon in which light is scattered by particles of matter in its path, it enables a beam of light to become visible by illuminating dust particles, etc.” Blue wavelengths are shorter than other colored wavelengths, and they bounce more rapidly when particles, like dust or water droplets, are scattered.
Why did my patient develop the Tyndall effect?
Blue eyes are a common example of the Tyndall effect in nature, as light is not absorbed, but is scattered, allowing short wavelength light to be ...
