Treating dark discoloration of the eyelids

Restylane would be an excellent filler for this area, coupled with Melarase cream to lighten the dark discoloration of the eyelid skin.

Sunken eyes

Botox will not help you.

You are young for consideration of treatment but I have learnt with experience to treat the face in front of me not the date of birth!

Consideration of HA dermal fillers, fat transfer and adequate nutrition, sleep and hydration would be am appropriate way forward in my opinion.

Sunken eyes treatment

Restylane is a fantastic filler for under the eyes. However, injecting Restylane in this area is difficult and requires a specialist to obtain the best result. I would recommend seeking an in-person consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist who is experienced injecting filler in the tear trough. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Treatment For Sunken Eyes

I would suggest Restylane or Belotero under the eyes along with ZO hydrafirm. This can bring excellent results and will look extremely natural.

Treatment for Sunken Eyes

Botox is not the treatment you’re looking for. You’re dealing with tear troughs, which can be reduced through use of dermal fillers like Radiesse, or hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm. I advise you to consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who is skilled with injecting fillers into this area. Fillers can last 6 to 18 months depending on which one you use and how much is injected. I have used Radiesse successfully for this purpose.

Hollowing under the eyes

Injecting fillers under the eyes can help with the hollowness under the eyes.  I prefer restylane in this area.  Be sure to find a doctor that has done a lot of injections in this area, as this is a tricky area to treat.  Take care, Dr. Groff

Sunken eyes

You have young and attractive eyes. They are really not that "sunken".  I would advise you to leave them alone. Any filler around the eyes is temporary and sometimes can cause swelling, lumpiness and odd looking. At some point later in life you may benefit from fat transfers.

Sunken Eyes

No filler or Bo-tox will help to improve eyes that are deeply set.  Sometimes patients see darkness under the eyes because of the shadow present.  Work with make-up.   You are young and I would not recommend anything now...Dr. Boxrud
