Will HA Fillers Accentuate Undereye Darkness?

If I have a slight blueish appearance under my eyes, will hyaluronic fillers accentuate that, even if injected deeply? I'm considering this to fill a hollowing and because I can't afford the recovery time needed for surgery. However, if surgery was an option, would fat transfer, repositioning, etc. better conceal the darkness? Finally, why can't fillers be manufactured with tint? I am a male caucasian 50 years of age. I had an upper Blepharoplasty performed 2006 with good results. I also responded well to Juvederm to fill marionette lines on 2008.

If the darkness is from hollowing, Restylane should help


Check the Lower Lid Restylane photos on my web site (link below). There you will see a man of your age with lower lid Restylane with a nice correction.  If you look like this, Restylane works better than surgery.
