What would you recommend for the circles under my eyes? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 11
The best treatment for the excessive bags under the eyes would be modest dermal filler rejuvenation. These products will allow for the re-volumization of the thin, deflated skin under the eyes.
Adding fillers to re-sculpt your cheekbones will also allow for plumping up the wrinkles around the eyes.
Finally, if there is additional softening needed, then Botox or another neuromodulator can help as well.

Botox not for under eye bags

I would concur with the previous physician who suggested surgery for you. Fillers and Botox will not correct it. Best, Dr. Green
Botox for undereye circles
Botox would help improve the appearance of your eyes by softening the crow's feet and opening up your eyes. However, it will not do anything for the undereye dark circles. A filler such as Restylane or Belotero could replace some of the volume you have lost in the tear trough and improve the dark circles. A non ablative laser such as Fraxel could help with the fine lines around the eyes and lighten any pigmentation A good eye cream, particularly one containing hyaluronic acid to plump the skin and a retinol to help with the lines would also improve the appearance of your eyes. In summary, there are many treatment options, and it is important that you see an experienced physician who can combine these treatments to give you the best results possible.
What to do for dark circles under the eyes
Thanks for the question. Firstly, I would say that from the photos, you appear to have bags and bulges rather than dark circles. These can be treated either with filler injections or surgery. The surgery can be performed either by a transconjunctival (scarless) approach, or by the anterior conventional approach. You should see an ocoluplastic or plastic surgeon with appropriate expertise to discuss this further.If the problem is darkness, this is another issue entirely. It only tends to improve with blepharoplasty in about 50% of patients and in a very small number (1% or less), it can actually make them worse.
