sunken under-eye area
Dec 13, 2002

Is there any kind of cream, etc. to plump up the under eye area instead of collegen injections, for sunken-looking sockets?

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Some of the anti-wrinkle creams induce mild swelling which reduces the look of wrinkles. I am not aware of a cream that would do enough for sunken eyes due to lipoatrophy. If the fat changes around the eyes are minor it may be worth exploring.

how much is too much?
