How to Fix Hollow Eyes with Juvederm and Resylane

We talk a lot about reducing under-eye puffiness, but we know that
some of you also suffer from another issue: Eyes that look sunken and
hollow. This problem is especially noticeable on more slender faces. But
what causes hollow eyes? And how can you improve the issue? We asked
Lake Mary, FL, facial plastic surgeon Edward J. Gross, MD, for his

“Hollow eyes are caused by the loss of orbital fat in the lower
eyelids,” Dr. Gross explains. “This is caused by hereditary factors,
aging and volume loss.” He says there is help for the hollow; whether

Filler Fix: Hyaluronic acid is effective in filling
deficient areas under the eyes when it is injected deep into the tissue.
“The best option is a hyaluronic acid filler, such as Restylane or
Juvéderm Voluma, in combination with surface treatments to the skin,”
says Dr. Gross. 

Permanent Fix: A lower eyelift
or blepharoplasty surgery can remove any loose skin under the eyes that
makes hollowing look worse, and the fat can be repositioned or added to
smooth out sunken skin. “Lower blepharoplasty provides conservative
repositioning or removal of the herniated fat,” he says. “Oftentimes we
offer lower blepharoplasty along with hyaluronic acid fillers, which are
always recommended after surgery for optimal results.” 

Product Fix: Applying cucumber slices and products with vitamin C can
reduce the dark circles that sometimes accompany eye hollowing. Retinol
is a good ingredient to help fragile skin become stronger, and
humectants will create a bit of a plumping effect under the eyes. If you
find that you have dark circles too, a prescription of hydroquinone can
help to lighten up under-eye shadows. “Hydroquinone products are great
for helping eliminate dark circles,” adds Dr. Gross.
