Tear Trough Fillers for 33 yr old?
My skin looks great for my age, and I have no wrinkles at all whatsoever. My only aging issue is that I am losing fat rapidly around my eyes. A friend said I should get a little bit of filler in my tear trough area. Am I being extreme by wanting this done? She said that one should begin early so the face isn't used to falling. I feel like loss of volume ages you faster than wrinkles. Any info would be much appreciated about good practitioners in the Chicago area for a newbie like me!

I do this procedure on a daily basis and I agree with you - loss of volume ages you more than wrinkles sometimes. Its important to go to someone experienced with the procedure, though because it can be tricky to perform. The nice thing is that the effect lasts for 2 years or so because of the collagen stimulation involved. I'm in Los Angeles, but you can take a look at my website for before and after pictures of what a good result looks like.
