What Are Dark Circles?

Dark circles under the eyes are a common issue that many people face, caused by various factors. As the skin under the eyes is particularly thin, it can easily show signs of tiredness or aging.

Treatment for dark circles includes nourishing chemical peels and laser therapy, aiming to reduce their appearance and rejuvenate the eye area.

What Can Cause Dark Circles Around Eyes?

A variety of issues, including lack of sleep, dehydration, excessive alcohol consumption, & a poor diet, all play a role. Genetics & aging are other factors that contribute to the appearance of under-eye hollowing. Although the causes are many & varied, a proper diet & lifestyle can minimize or even prevent the formation of these unsightly spots. Whether they are genetic or a result of aging, these conditions are often accompanied by a dull, shadow-like appearance.

Despite common misconceptions, eye-rolling & lack of sleep are not the only factors contributing to the development of dark circles around eyes. Inflammation & stress, a lack of adequate rest are also factors. While they may not cause the appearance of these circles, they can cause the appearance of hollowness in the area.

In addition, a lack of nutrients in the diet can lead to discoloration of the area around the eyes. Vitamin B12 & iron deficiency are the most common causes of this problem. Both deficiency can affect the health of the eyes & result in the appearance of these shadows.
Some Causes of Dark Circles

Allergies. Allergies can cause inflammation around the eyes. The rubbing of the eyelids & scratching of the skin beneath the eye can make the area darker & more noticeable. Allergic reactions to dust, pollen, cosmetics, & other products may cause dark circles around your eyes.

Lack of sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, it can be shown under your eyes in the form of puffiness or dark circles. Other signs that you need more sleep include fatigue, irritability, & a lack of concentration.

Aging. As we age, the skin under our eyes gets thinner, allowing blood vessels to become more visible. This gives the appearance of dark circles under our eyes. Another reason for dark circles is reduced elasticity in the skin under our eyes due to aging.


As people age, the skin loses its natural elasticity & becomes thinner. The blood vessels located just under the thinned out skin are more prominent & give the area a dark appearance.

Dark circles under the eyes may be hereditary. If this is the case, they will not disappear with topical treatment. People who have darker skin tones may have dark circles that are not caused by aging or heredity. These areas are usually caused by pigmentation (melasma) & can often be improved with topical agents that lighten or bleach the skin.

1. Dark discoloration around the eyes.
2. Sunken eyes.
3. Puffy eyes.
4. Tired, dull complexion.
5. Fine lines under the eyes.
6. Swelling & redness around the eyes
7. Darkening skin color around your eyes
8. Itchy skin around your eyes
9. Eye pain
10. Skin flaking or eczema

To avoid the development of dark circles around the eyes, you should try to reduce your stress levels & getting enough sleep to help reduce the appearance of dark circles. Besides that, it can also help reduce the appearance of puffiness.

If you are prone to seasonal allergies, it is important to keep yourself hydrated, as dehydration will make the area look hollow. It’s also crucial to avoid alcohol or other forms of dehydration. These factors can cause puffiness, making the area appear darker.

treatment, fillers can be injected under the eyes to restore padding to the lower eyelid & cheek. You can also try applying a cold compress to your eyes daily to reduce the appearance of these shadows.

Besides dietary changes, you can also consult a dermatologist to correct dark circles. They can recommend skin care products to eliminate these blemishes. Tear trough filler is a very effective non-surgical treatment to help treat dark circles around the eyes. The tear trough area is the groove that runs from your nose to cheek. The skin in this area is thin which can cause shadows to form & make under eye circles look more prominent.

The filler used in this procedure is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. It works by adding volume to the skin, smoothing out any deep lines & wrinkles.

This procedure works best if you have mild to moderate tear trough deformity, as it will not get rid of severe darkness caused by underlying structural problems. If you are unsure whether or not you are suitable for this treatment, contact us for a consultation with one of our doctors who will be able to advise you on your best options. The procedure will leave you looking fresh & beautiful. So, why not try it?

Solutions to Remove Dark Circles

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are often used to treat wrinkles & fine lines, but they can also help to remove dark circles around your eyes. This treatment uses chemicals to remove the top layer of skin, which leaves behind a smoother, younger looking skin surface. A chemical peel takes less than an hour.
Laser Treatment

Laser treatment can help to reduce the dark circles around your eyes. This treatment stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten the skin & reduce the appearance of dark circles. Laser treatment can also reduce the blood vessels that are sometimes visible through thin skin. The recovery time for this procedure is typically shorter than surgery & the results are permanent.

Microdermabrasion is similar but is less invasive, using a device that sprays microscopic crystals across the surface of the skin to loosen dead skin cells, which are then vacuumed off. Both treatments make the skin appear smoother & better able to reflect light, making dark circles less visible.

I have been a returning customer to Artistry Clinic for a number of years. My first treatment was for nose reshaping, I was so happy with the results, I have since returned multiple times and have expanded to receive other filler based treatment. I am always made to feel comfortable and have absolute confidence in the results every time.

This was my first visit. All staff were very polite and pleasant. It makes such a difference when people are pleasant and respectful towards you. They were all very helpful, though they could know the immediate area around the clinic better for directions. Dr Shah herself was lovely. I look forward to having treatment.

I've been to see Jen at the Renown House/Bury Street clinic twice now. Both times she's been patient, sympathetic and encouraging and she really knows her stuff when it comes to the various treatments and options available for each skin condition. She's always happy to talk through any concerns or worries you have with either the treatment or your skin, and the clinic is always clean and well presented. I've seen improvement in my skin already and I'm looking forward to going back for another visit in the future!

I have been seeing Dr Sarah Shah for almost 4 years now, she has provided me with a multitude of treatments over the years, and I have always been very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her services which is why I have been such a longstanding customer. I am a real perfectionist, so its hard to find someone that shares my vision and that was just what I found in Dr Shah! I am certain you will not be disappointed with whatever treatment you seek to have with Dr Shah-she will certainly put you at ease and give you a lot of time to ensure you are happy with the results!

I discovered Sarah in 2013 and have never looked back. Her aesthetics are brilliant (Botox and recently the 8 point lift face lift .. both of which left me feeling rejuvenated, lifted but 'natural' .. a perfect balance) Likewise the aftercare (follow-up appointment) is amazing ... you are given as much attention as the initial consultation and Sarah's job is not done until she knows you are happy with the results! Thank you Sarah .. thank you team

I always see great results. And never any discomfort from injections as Sarah always ensures plenty of time for the anaesthetic cream to take effect. You never feel rushed & Sarah & the clinic staff are welcoming & knowledgeable. The clinic itself is 3 mins walk from Aldgate tube. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

I have been to see Sarah 3 times this year for fillers. I have on each occasion had an excellent experience. I have always been seen on time, I didn't feel rushed and plenty of time and consideration was taken with my treatment. She was able to give thorough explanation of what she was doing and why and how I could get the most optimal results from my treatment going forward. There was no pressure or hard sell or making me feel like I needed anything!! (except that my experience was so good that I can't wait to go back!). I have been to a few places in London for similar treatment, all reputable. But I felt most confident in Sarah Shah's clinic.
