Hollowing and droopy
Thank you for your photo. Drooping and hollowing are due to aging in which skin slowly loses its fight with gravity and there is volume loss as we get older. This results in bags and lines under our eyes and around our noses. Our lifestyle also can speed the aging process along particularly with smoking, alcohol use, sun exposure, or sleeping on one side of the face. It is always best to quit smoking which will improve the quality of your skin and healing abilities. Options to improve your undereye area include filler and eye bag surgery to smooth the lines and depressions, tightening the skin, and repostioning fat into a more youthful area. It is best to have an in-office examination to determine exactly what areas need to be treated and what surgical and non-surgical options are available for your problem areas. Hope this helps!!

Quitting smoking will improve your skin quality and your health. In addition I recommend a combination approach. In treating under eyes, a combination approach is best. I use a combination approach of lasers, microneedling/PRP, fillers and skin care/peels which can improve this area. Facial contouring can be done with fillers and/or fat. See an expert.
