Factors Influencing the Appearance of Dark Under Eye Circles

Dermal Fillers for Under Eye Circles

Reducing the appearance of under eye dark circles is possible if you have accurately identified the factors that has caused it (except for genetics). However, this is only applicable for mild cases.

Specifically, fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm have been shown to improve the appearance of raccoon eyes by adding more volume in the lower eyelids.
