• Description

    Dark circles under the eyes are characterized by discoloration or shadows beneath the lower eyelids, often caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, aging, sleep deprivation, allergies, or lifestyle habits like smoking and excessive sun exposure. They can give the appearance of tiredness or fatigue, impacting one's overall facial appearance and self-confidence. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes to topical creams and cosmetic procedures depending on the underlying cause and severity.

  • Cause

    Dark circles underneath the eyes can result from several reasons:

    • Genetics - Natural bone structure may create a shadow that makes the appearance of the undereye circles more prominent.

    • Lack of Sleep

    • Dehydration

    • Aging - Collagen loss over some time can create a hollowing effect under the eyes.

    • Allergies or Eczema - Rubbing the eyes can create broken blood vessels and pigment deposits.

  • Treatment

    Treatment options include:

    Volume loss, genetics, and/or aging-related under-eye dark circles - hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane, Juvederm, and RHA fillers are all treatment options for volumizing the hollowness underneath the eyes.

    Pigmentation under the eyes - Chemical peels in combination with appropriate tailor products can effectively improve under-eye pigmentation.
