Thank you for your question.
Based on your goals, you may want to consider a dermal filler. Temporary dermal fillers may provide you with your desired results with minimal discomfort and recovery times.
I recommend you book a consultation with a qualified injector, to ensure you're a good candidate for this procedure.

One other doctor in this forum recommended injecting Radiesse here -- that is not advised! It's not dissolvable and is too firm and unpredictable in the under eye area.
Be sure your physician is an experienced "core" injector (facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or occuloplastic surgeon). This is because we all have a keen understanding of facial anatomy and the effects of injecting fillers in different regions of the face.
I wish you well!

What filler is best for hollows under eyes?
When it comes to under eye fillers it is important to realize that the skin is very thin. This affects my choice for fillers here. I like to use Restylane. The reason is that it is a thinner product compared to ones like Voluma and Restylane Lyft. I am not a fan of Voluma or Lyft in that area as it is more prone to visibility and lumpiness. The other thing I like about Restylane is it does not tend to pull in as much water as Juvederm. This minimize the risk of having puffy eyes afterwards (although I love using Juvederm in other areas). A very conservative option here would be Restylane Silk, as it is so thin, but Restylane would do a better job and last longer in my opinion. I know some people who inject Belotero there, but I don't carry that product and don't have much experience with it (but from reports it doesn't last as long as Restylane).
I'd recommend you consult with one of the core physician injectors (facial plastic surgeon, dermatologist, plastic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon) who performs his or her own injections. He or she can tell you which product is recommended based on his or her experience, but I inject Restylane for my patients.
I hope this helps and good luck.
