The valley of tears under the eyes - where does it come from?

A wrinkle known as thevalley of tears is a characteristic diagonal furrow between the inner corner of the eye and the cheek. Its name comes from the line along which tears flow. The appearance of the valley of tears is a consequence of the natural aging process of the skin. With age, the adipose tissue located under the eyelids and around the cheek moves downwards, and the eye sockets begin to subside. Muscle flaccidity and loss of collagen and elastin also play a part in this process. All this makes the patients even younger than 40 years old to look for ways to eliminate the valley of tears under the eyes.

Unfortunately, time is not always the only factor contributing to this wrinkle. The valley of tears at a young age is often caused by excessive exposure of the face to UV radiation and not using sunscreens. Genetic factors, violent weight loss, metabolic disorders and lifestyle (e.g. smoking, unhealthy diet, dehydration, etc.) can also affect the early appearance of the valley of tears.

Aesthetic medicine comes with to your rescue. Filling the valley of tears with hyaluronic acid is the most popular, although not the only method to reduce this visible wrinkle. Laser treatments, microneedle radiofrequency, mesotherapy of the skin around the eyes and biostimulators come in handy.
