Combined lasers and fillers to treat tear trough deformities

In a recent interview of experts on the topic of treating tear trough deformities by EyeNet Magazine, a monthly publication by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Wendy Lee, MD, associate professor of clinical ophthalmology and dermatology at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, reported that she used a variety of modalities to treat tear trough deformities including the use of laser to improve skin texture.

Robert Goldberg, MD, professor and chief of orbital and ophthalmic plastic surgery at UCLA’s Jules Stein Eye Institute, agreed with Dr. Lee. According to Dr. Goldberg, “if you use a filler on a patient with poor skin quality, you don’t get the best effect, and the filler actually makes the skin look worse.” Dr. Goldberg emphasized that both skin quality and skin tone are the most important features in periorbital rejuvenation and are even more important than the orbital rim hollow itself.
