Hollow Eyes and Fillers
Based on your photo you would be an excellent candidate for either Belotero or Restylane under the hollows under the eyes. Belotero is a newer filler which I prefer since you do not have the risk of the Tyndall effect. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
Restylane for the tear trough
Great candidate for Restylane or Belotero
So overall, Belotero is a great filler for areas with thin delicate skin overlying (like under the eyes). From your photos, it does appear that you would be a great candidate for this filler.
Injecting in this area is a more advanced filling technique so please find a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon in your area.

Tear Troughs, Hollows And Dark Circles Under The Eyes Respond Well To Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
A variety of have been tried for these purposes. My personal favorites for dealing with hollows and tear troughs--for providing overall smoothness, shape and lift-- are Belotero Balance and Restylane L. Belotero Balance has the advantage of having a negligible chance of causing the unwanted bluish Tyndall Effect, which sometimes occurs when hyaluronic acid fillers are injected superficially as needs to be the case when treating the tear troughs. When more cheek support and buttressing are needed for the lower eyelid, as appears also to be the case here from the photos, the upper inner cheek immediately below may also be supplemented with with Perlane L, known for its lifting capacity.
It usually takes about five minutes to treat each lower lid with immediate improvement that typically evokes a "Wow!" response from patients when they look in the mirror.
While minimal bruising, tenderness, swelling and redness may occur following treatment in this delicate region, these are usually temporary and disappear spontaneously within one to seven days. Most people can return to work or social activities immediately or the following day and coverup may be used if desired. Treating under the eyes is not for beginning injectors, so I recommend that you seek out consultation and treatment by a board certified core aesthetic physician with extensive experience in injecting this region.
