The tear troughs are a form of eye bags which occurs between the lower eyelid and the cheeks. In most cases, the tear troughs arise as a result of aging, although they can be hereditary. The tear trough occurs as a result of orbital fat loss which causes the skin to thin and dehydrate. This causes the skin around the lower eyelid and the cheek descent to sag.
