Lower Eyelid Fillers Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

Tired young woman with dark circles under eyes

People with dark circles under their eyes often try to find the quickest and least painful way to get rid of them. This discoloration is a common cosmetic concern; people do not want to look tired.

Getting lower eyelid fillers is the most convenient treatment available to eliminate signs of fatigue and restore a youthful facial appearance. There are various types of fillers, but all involve substances that work by adding volume to the lower eyelid and tightening the skin.

Filler Options Offered by Dr. Maurice Khosh

Belotero®, Juvederm® and Restylane® are hyaluronic acid lower eyelid filler brands that are natural-looking, moldable during treatment, easy to administer and reversible because you can have them dissolve if you are unsatisfied with the results. However, they are the shortest-lasting of all lower eyelid fillers.

On the other hand, fat transfer is the longest-lasting but most complicated of the lower eyelid fillers, because it requires an additional procedure to source the fat from somewhere else in your body.

A nano-fat transfer is the best choice to improve dark eye bags. It is a fantastic skin booster and provides ultra-smooth results. However, it may not add enough volume for specific individuals.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid that lasts longer than hyaluronic acid and is an excellent collagen booster. Still, sometimes it can take six months to notice results.
Radiesse® is calcium hydroxylapatite, a white substance that is long-lasting but may appear too white and cause nodules.

Many Things Can Cause Dark Circles, Not Only Fatigue

Dark circles are not just caused by fatigue. Some people get dark circles because their skin loses fat and collagen as they age, which makes the area under their eyes look hollow. These people may always have black circles under their eyes, regardless of how much sleep they get. Additional causes of under-eye darkness include allergies, dehydration, heredity and skin pigmentation problems.

Sometimes, blood vessels close to the skin’s surface are to blame for the darkness. In such cases, a filler may not work. That is why you must consult a doctor experienced with persistent dark circles, like Dr. Khosh, who can help you choose an appropriate treatment strategy for your situation.

There are other solutions for eliminating those circles under your eyes. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to see if fillers suit you.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
