Eyes are said to be windows to the souls. They tell the world about the hidden, yet real image of yours. Well rested, youthful, sparkling eyes reflect an image of an enthusiastic person, full of life, whereas tired eyes with under eye bags, wrinkles and dark circles reveal that you are a depressed and aloof person. The worst part of tired eyes with under eye bags is that they also make you look years older than your actual age.

Various other factors that contribute to puffiness under the eyes include:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Not taking proper diet
- Excessive tobacco consumption
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Not using sunscreen when going out in sun
- Water retention due to some medical condition

Then using a fine, hair-thin needle the filler is injected into the skin on the top of the bone, in the tear trough. This instantly adds volume to the tear trough region, forming a convex bump in this area, thus adding a more uniform contour between the cheeks and the lower eyelid.
