Under Eyes

Under Eyes

Hollowing can occur under your eyes; the tear troughs deepen and give the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. There are many causes of sunken or hollowing under the eyes. Dehydration is one and the most common cause. If you are dehydrated, you do not have enough water in your body.

Vitamin deficiencies are also causes of sunken or hollowing under your eyes. You may have vitamin C deficiencies and a lack of vitamin K and iron, which will cause hollowing eye issues. Sleep issues are a common cause of hollowing under your eyes. Establish a good sleep pattern to prevent hollowing eyes.

Aging is also a cause of hollowing eyes. Loss of collagen causes eyes to settle back into the eye sockets allowing hollows under the eyes to be prominent.

Unfortunately, genetics also play a part in hollowing eyes, and weight loss can be an issue. If weight loss is dramatic enough to cause the blood vessels to be prominent and the skin becomes transparent, this will produce hollowing under your eyes.

Under-eye hollowing correction recommendations are:


Fillers can be used to lighten tear troughs under the eye. Fillers help under eyes look plumper and brighter, and reducing under-eye shadows can help you look well-rested. Some fillers for hollow eyes include hyaluronic acid that is also produced in the body. Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from a gel that mimics this natural substance. Brands include Restylane and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid fillers support collagen production in the skin and are made to provide smoothness and a natural look.

Poly-L-lactic acid contained in Sculptra Aesthetic can also help invigorate collagen production. You can use poly-L-lactic acid in an injectable form to fill in under-eye hollows.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels tighten the skin below your eyes and minimize the effects of aging. The chemical peel causes the outer layer of skin to peel off. New skin growth replaces the old skin, helps tighten skin, and removes fine lines and wrinkles below the eyes.


Exercises will help reduce under-eye hollows. Ingredients like frozen potatoes or cucumbers can help plump the under-eye area, and coconut oil is great to add moisture to the under eyes. Dermal fillers will give you instant results. Fillers with hyaluronic acid filler to plump up the hollow area under your eyes can last up to 15 months after injections.

First, the skin is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied to the under-eye area. A small needle filler is inserted slowly into the skin under the eyes. The product is smoothed out.

Chemical peels include glycolic acid retinoic acid or hydroquinone. A professional has learned how to apply a chemical peel without causing your eyes any damage.
