DARK CIRCLES UNDER EYES
TREATMENT OPTIONS AND COMMON QUESTIONS TO DOCTOR
BEST FOR: hollowness or depressed areas under eyes.
COST: from $600
DOWNTIME: none or 2-4 days (bruising)
Less bone can support the thin skin under the eyes, causing drooping under eyes skin drooping down. Additionally, thinning with age under eyes skin is more transparent for darker blood and hollow areas under the skin.
Filler can be placed under the eye to provide support (you can do a test yourself – press under eye bone with your finger – more pronounced fat pad will fill in the under eyes darkness and will appear lighter and less wrinkles). Typically such filler also provides less tired look.
If needed, doctor can carefully place a small amount of filler (sometimes mixed with vitamins and non-crossed linked hyaluronic acid) for rejuvenation of the under eyes skin and filling in hollowness.
BEST FOR: excess fat

Bone of the chin provides support for soft tissues of jawline and fat under chin. When chin’ bone is too small in proportion to the face, double chin can appear even in young and not overweight people.
