Restylane Perlane under the eyes to remove sunken in dark circles?

Teosyal Redensity II is great for dark circles
Although Perlane is a great filler, I personally recommend Teosyal Redensity II for the tear trough area. It helps address dark circles and deep hollows under the eyes. My patients have loved the results achieved with Teosyal Redensity II injections, and we find it extremely popular for those not yet ready for blepharoplasty (corrective eye surgery). Filler should be injected deep under the eyelid muscle and above the bone. Be sure to consult a certified and experienced facial plastic surgeon.

The second part of your question deals with the dark coloration. This may very well be due to the hollow you are describing. Sometimes a shadow appears which accentuates the depression and causes it to look dark. Other times, there is a congenital hyper-pigmentation of the skin. If the skin itself has a dark quality, even in direct light, fillers may not totally address the problem.
I would see a qualified surgeon to discuss your options.

Best Filler for Under Eye Hollow is Restylane
The best, safest, and most effective filler for filling lower eyelid hollows is Restylane. In fact, it is the only filler that I recommend in this most delicate and unforgiving area. The filler needs to be placed under the eyelid muscle and above the bone. We prefer to use a micro-canulla to inject the lower lid hollow. A small needle is used to make a small skin prick and the micro-canullla (which is not sharp, it is round at it's tip and is much less traumatic, much less painful, less bruising) is then placed through the opening to inject the filler.
The most important aspect of your treatment is making sure that you choose your injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.
