In brief: Depends on cause

The appearance of "sunken eyes" may develop for a few reasons.
As we age, the skin of the lower lids tends to thin, revealing the darker muscle beneath and giving the lower lid a darker appearance. Also, we lose volume in our lower lid and cheeks, creating a "sunken" effect in the lower lid. Treatment is aimed at restoring this volume and the cheek to lid relationship.
