I'm a 26 year old healthy african american male with these dark deep-wrinkled tear trough hollows. I have had them since i was a kid. I've tried a ton of anti-wrinkle creams with no success as well as natural remedies until i realized it might not just be wrinkles but more the bone/fat structure of that area. How can i get rid of these dark tear troughs? What will the procedure cost? Also what skin pigment issues should i take into consideration?

The lower eyelid area is delicate and unforgiving, so the expertise of your physician is important. My personal preference is to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.
Hope this is helpful.
