Filler treatment for tear troughs
I prefer Restylane for tear trough treatments for my Orange County patients as it causes less swelling. Juvederm Voluma is less hydrophilic (water loving) and therefore less likely to cause swelling but it works better if used in the cheek below the eye. Juvederm ultra and ultra plus are more likely to cause persistant swelling under the eyes.
Using Juvederm Voluma under the eyes in tear troughs
I am not a huge fan of using Voluma in this location since it is a thicker filler used for volume restoration and lift, so best in the cheek bones. I prefer restylane or restylane fine lines in the tear troughs after having treated hundreds of patients with various fillers in this location. Restylane or even Juvederm typically lasts 1-2 years when injected in the tear trough.
