Darkness under the Eyes
It is very difficult to ascertain from the photo what is causing the continued under eye darkness. I would consult a board certified dermatologist to examine your eyes. Perhaps there is still Voluma product under the eye area. If the darkness is being caused by the injections there would be away to treat this. A better under eye filler such as Belotero might hide the discoloration. Best, Dr. Green

In some cases, the application of hyaluronic acid based fillers like Voluma, restylane, etc, it may improve the appearance of the
"dark circles" by increasing the "thickens" of the area ( increase of volume) and therefore creating an optical illusion that the circles are improved. However, sometimes the "darkness under the eyes" doesn't improve, very likely because the filler is transparent ( allowing the dark color to be seeing through the skin).
Patients who have had suboptimal results of "dark circle" improvement with hyaluronic acid fillers may improve their appearance with fat injections. Fat could correct the hollowness under the eyes. Additionally, since the fat has "normal" soft tissue color" it will cover the veins under the eyes therefore addressing the "dark circles" under the eyes
Patients interested in fat transfer under the eyes should make a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in cosmetic procedure of the face
