Under eye Hyperpigmentation vs Tear Trough Depression
the first question i would have is whether its just color or if you have indentations in the tear trough area under the eyes. a tear trough depression looks like hyperpigmentation because a shadow falls into the depression. if there's a tear trough depression, it can be filled with juvederm and the results are quite dramatic. if its just color and the area under the eyes is flat, then your options are fairly limited. hydroquinone sometimes helps, but i would get the higher percentage creams - 8% or more. kojic acid sometimes helps as well.
