Dark circles

If you are concerned specifially about the dark color, no filler will help. If you are concenred about depressions around the eyes that lead to shadowing, then fillers can help I prefer diliute restylane to gently fill the area.

Dark circles under eyes and fillers


  Dark circles under they eyes are caused by several contributing phenomena, excess skin, gravitational sagging, retained fluid, and sometimes by venous congestion.  You have identified a feature that you would like improved, the next step is to schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced provider. 

  You may have read on these forums that there are several available injectables for adding volume to the tear trough area, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, ect.  There are pros and cons of each, but when appropriately applied, they all work well.  More important than the product used is the provider placing it.  Make sure you spend the time to find a physician that is qualified, experienced, and that you are comfortable with.

Hope this helps.

Diluted Radiesse tends to give a smoother result than the restylane/juvederm fillers for hollow eyes.

Diluted Radiesse injected over 2-3 sessions tend to fill in sunken areas nicely and have the advantage of lightening up the dark circles since it is a white material.  Cost is $630 and one syringe is all that is usually needed for dark circles. Sincerely,
