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.
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.

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?
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 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.
