Laser Treatment After Filler for Under Eye Hollows?

If I get a filler for hollow under eyes, will I also need laser treatment or something to lighten the darkness of the skin discoloration?

Fillers add volume and do not change skin discoloration.  However, under the eyes, in the so-called "tear trough" region, filling of the depression may diminish the dark area by changing shadowing.  Try the filler first in this area.
