Fillers or Other Procedures for Dark Circles on Thin Skin?

I have dark circles as well as some very fine lines located right under my lower lash line. I try to cover my dark circles, but the concealer settles into the lines and I hate it. Would I benefit from fillers or is there some procedure that can actually thicken the undereye skin? I've thought of trying fillers, but I have thin skin and I'm worried that the Restylane (or whichever one) would somehow show through. The first time I had Restylane in my lips, there were parts where I could kind of see the little gel pocket. Can this happen in the eye area? I really appreciate any advice.

Restylane for Dark Circles Under Eyes (Hollows)


Hi Miss Ashley,

Restylane under your eyelid should correct your concerns. Restylane should be placed under the lower eye lid muscle in a very conservative manner. It should not show through.

The lower eyelid area is a very delicate and unforgiving area so make sure that you choose your injecting physician most carefully.

Good luck and be well.
