What can I do about my dark hollows under my eyes?
I’m Always Looking Tired! Dr. Dean Kane, plastic surgeon and expert injector in Baltimore, MD, has the ideal solution for dark hollows under the eyes. Dr. Kane uses Radiesse filler to plump the hollowness and lighten the darkness. Patients are always telling Dr. Kane I am always looking tired.
