Artificial Skin for Dark Circles

Artificial skin-not so much.
Unfortunately medical science has not caught up to every treatment we can imaging. Presently skin grafting is very difficult to match to the surrounding tissues. Generally the best approach to the dark circle is to add volume in this area with Restylane.
