Mesotherapy As a Solution for Hollowness Under Eyes?

Thank you for your question. I would not recommend mesotherapy for the lower eyes area. I recommend seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and or Oculoplastic surgeon for this issue. Mesotherapy has its place, unfortunately, the results are not predictable, and the risks are elevated. I hope this helps.

If someone recommends nasal therapy get another opinion.

No photographs are provided so specific advice is not possible. However anyone proposing mesotherapy should give pause. Get another opinion.

Do not inject mesotherapy under the eyes - it will make the condition worse

Either you are confused by the terminology or procedures or your dermatologist is suggesting something that is at the least counterproductive.  You need filler or volume to this area and not something that will dissolve the fat.   If you submit a photo more information may be obtained.

Don't have mesotherapy for under eye hollowness.

Your dermatologist does not know what they are taking about. At best the mesotherapy will do nothing.  At worst it will kill fat in the lower eyelid making your hollow worse.   I can't understand why you would not be a candidate for lower eyelid fillers.  I say get rid of your doctor and see someone who makes sense.  The best way to get out of trouble is to stay after trouble.
