Under eyes dark circles and tear troughs
As we age, we start loosing fat and the muscle becomes lax along with some bone atrophy. This will result in hollowing under the eyes and deepening of the nasolabial folds as the cheek fat pads descend.
Deepening of the tear troughs can result in a tired appearance.
This can be solved by adding up some volume using fillers.
