I am 23 years old and have always been dark under my eyes, I believe this is hereditary. Recently I have noticed this has worsened (I used to be able to cover the darkness with make up, but I seem to have more of a “hollowing” now). I am concerned about whether I am too young to be considering surgery or treatment in this area. People have been asking me if I’m tired and I am worried this will only get worse as I get older. Any advice would be appreciated.
You will not benefit from lower eyelid surgery. You have a pronounced tear trough. You very best option is to have Restylane filler to fill in this hollow. Juevederm and the newer Belotero are not the right products for this application because these products tend to spread after injection. It is critical that the products stay precisely where they are placed. Look for a very experience injector who does a lot of under eye treatment.
