You have probably researched how to prevent dark circles and eye bags, and you would do almost anything to get rid of them. But, unfortunately, even after you have tried tons of expensive treatments, they just come back!
Dark circles under the eyes may look purple, blue, or dark brown and you may be wondering if this calls for a serious health problem. The answer is no, but many patients feel that dark circles under the eye area make them look tired, older, and unhealthy.
Fatigue is the most common cause of dark circles. Apart from this, other factors that contribute to the discoloration of the skin under your eyes include allergies, allergic rhinitis, dermatitis, heredity, sun exposure, and consistent rubbing or scratching of the eyes.
There are also risk factors for dark circles, such as loss of fatty tissue and thinning of the skin around the eyes are part of the aging process. These changes can make dark circles more defined in older adults. For others, dark circles can be hereditary.
In some cases, dark circles under your eyes indicate a need for a lifestyle change, such as improving your sleep pattern, and diet and stopping smoking. Also, there are ways that people report have eliminated or reduced the appearance of dark circles under their eyes.
It’s time to consider working with a board-certified dermatologist. Some of the medical options they will offer include:
Chemical Peels Your doctor may suggest a light chemical peel to lighten dark pigmentation. This treatment will use glycolic acid, retinoic acid, or hydroquinone.
Laser Therapy Laser treatment uses heat energy to vaporize damaged cells. As a result, the darker pigment under your eyes will be targeted. Laser therapy will induce new collagen formation, later on, giving you a brighter skin tone around your eyes.
Fillers A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler can be injected into the tissue under the eye. This will help with the volume loss that causes dark circles.
