Voluma versus Restylane
This is a difficult question but I would encourage you to have your chin and cheeks done with Voluma first. It will last at least a year and I think you will be happy with the results. Best, Dr. Green

Restylane under the eyes will give some nice improvement and remove some of the 'tired' look that you have now.
Enough filler can lessen the look of the tear trough in some instances but again, we're back at the issue of affordability. Voluma is the better cheek product because it holds its shape really well.
Undereye hollows can be genetic - but sometimes they are a result of insufficient rest. Stay hydrated and get enough sleep. Often we'll look tired because we are!
More important is for you to understand that no matter what your outward appearance, your real self (not a pun on this website) is the person living INSIDE that face and body. If you look at, for instance, a picture of Mother Theresa, she would not have been a good choice for the most cosmetically perfect face, but knowing what we know about her, it's easy to see the deep inner beauty of who she was. Take a look at who YOU are inside. Your real beauty lies there. Having said that, however, it's perfectly okay to try to look as good as you can outside.
Go for the eyes!
I suggest treating the eyes first. You will see a nice improvement and might have a little product left for another area. Treating the eyes will also soften the junction of the eyes and the cheek which can dramatically make you look more rested and youthful.
I think you would like the improvement you would get with Voluma in the cheeks and chin also. So you can't go wrong. But I still think the eyes will make a bigger difference in you.
Hope this helps and good luck
Based on the photographs and information you provided (that you can only go for one syringe of filler right now), I would suggest treating the tear trough region first - I think you would see nice improvement with one syringe of product placed in that area, and may even have a little left over to be placed elsewhere.
I think you would see subtle improvement from one syringe of Voluma spread across both cheekbones and the chin region. Two syringes would be optimal.
It's a difficult decision, but either way you can't go wrong, and as long as you are in the hands of an experienced injector, I'm sure you will be pleased.
