Restylane® can help undereye circles caused by undereye hollowing, depending on your skin type and if the circles/darkness are exclusively caused by shadows created by light reflecting off of the hollow areas. There are multiple causes of undereye circles- it is possible that congestion of the blood vessels in the thin undereye skin can cause darkening, especially after lying down overnight. I advise you to consult a board-certified Aesthetic Dermatologist to best evaluate your undereye circles and recommend a course of treatment.
I would not use Restylane to treat dark circles. it is a filler used for volume replacement on the face only.
I would recommend you discuss with a Board Certified Dermatologist with expertise with Restylane
Restyland will help to restore lost volume in the under eye region. It is best to get a personal consultation to see what options will help you achieve the best results.
Dark circles can be due to a number of causes, and an in-person exam would really be necessary to determine what may help. Restylane will fill in a hollow tear trough, and helps improve the appearance of dark circles if they are due to a loss of volume. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
Restylane will help the tear trough areas and fill in the hollows. However, Restylane will not help lighten the dark skin under the eye area. Injections in this under eye area are difficult so please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best results.
Restylane can be used to plump a deep depression or Hollow area beneath your lower eyelids. This maneuver lessens the shadow caused by the depression and can improve a dark circle caused by this shadow.
However most patients referring to dark circles refer to the dark bluish color of the lower eyelid. The dark bluish color is caused by thin skin through which you can see the underlying purple color of the muscle.
It is very important that you understand that Restylane will not change this dark purple eyelid color, and many patients are disappointed as they anticipate that Restylane injection will change the dark color of the lower eyelid.
Restylane helps with dark circles under the eyes, if the darkness is because of volume loss. If you have dark circles because of veins under the eyes or skintone, Restylane wouldn't necessarily completely negate the darkness. Can you provide photos so we can properly assess your situation better?
