CORRECT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ASSESSING UNDER EYE HOLLOWS- Tilt your head down so that chin rests on your chest. Move your eye gaze as high up as you can and take a selfie of the lower lid area. This is the view that a seasoned physician asks for to assess under eye hollows. CORRECTION OF UNDER EYE HOLLOWS- Volume correction of under eye hollows can be done with certain HA's. Namely HA's that are not HYDROPHYLIC and HYGROSCPIC (water loving) and don't attach to water and cause swelling after injecton. Unfortunately, the appropriate fillers with these characteristics have not yet been FDA approved in US. However, a seasoned expert injector knows how to manipulate the existing fillers to accommodate under eye filling. My favorite for this area is Voluma. Sister products to Voluma including Volbella and Volift which are coming to US in the near future will be even more favorable when available.CORRECTION OF CROWS FEET- Dynamic wrinkles ( lines that form with movement and are not there when muscle is not contracted) in the crows feet area should be treated to prevent them from becoming Static wrinkles (wrinkles that are etched into the skin and present for the rest of your life). The paradigm shift that seasoned expert physicians have accepted is that we have changed strategies from just combating wrinkles after they have happen within our practices to preventing wrinkles from ever happening and becoming etched.

Under eye fillers
Hi Trixie31. A combination of fillers and Botox is great for relaxing the crow's feet and getting rid of the under eye bagginess. A product like Belotero or Juvederm, when done by an experienced injector in the tear trough area, gives you a beautiful result blending the cheek with the lower eyelid. Botox then helps to relax the smile lines in the corner of the eye. In addition, make sure you are sleeping 7 hours and staying away from salty foods. This will make you look and feel great!. Good luck.
