Dark Eye Circles

Dark Circles are an under eye issue which can really change the overall appearance of the face and can be something that plague you no matter your age.

Dark Circles, which are often called Tear Troughs, can be caused by lifestyle choices such as dehydration, poor diet and lack of sleep but can also be genetic. Dark circles may also gradually appear darker on one eye more than the other as a result of some habitual facial expressions, such as an uneven smile or sleeping more on one side. They can leave your eyes looking hollow and tired.

As we get older, our skin integrity decreases and fat and bone diminishes causing a reduction in volume under the eye area which leaves the eyes looking dark and sunken. Tear troughs, hollow eyes or dark circles are all related to this ageing process and are a direct result of fat loss which is part of the ageing process, which causes a reduction in volume under the eye area

A multi-modal treatment approach is best, however, dermal fillers are a popular treatment choice due to providing an immediate improvement in volume. Dermal Fillers work by drawing water to the treatment area, thereby increasing the density of the underlying tissue.

FAQ

Your assessment will allow the doctor to explain the causes in you specifically. However, a number of contributory factors may exist:

  • Thinning of skin due to collagen loss
  • Pooling of blood in veins leading to discolouration from breakdown of blood pigment
  • More apparent blood/vessels due to thinning of skin
  • Shadow effect secondary to hollowing due to changes in fat and bone support
  • Pigmentation eg from sun damage

A lack of sleep will contribute to your dark circles. We often see this in patients who work night shifts but it is not the only reason for dark circles.

Extreme fatigue, oversleeping, hereditary, puffy eyes (fluid under the eyes can cast shadows) and people with darker skin types tend to suffer more with dark circles.

While it isn’t guaranteed, dark circles can often be something which run in families and do have a genetic aspect to them. You may also find this is more prominent in those with darker skin tones.

Dark circles can be treated topically with medical-grade products which are scientifically formulated to get active ingredients to the target area within the skin. High street products are unlikely to give visible results due to low potency of ingredients. Although fake cosmeceutical products can be found on the internet, UK distributors will only supply these products to clinics like ours, as it is important to match the correct product(s) with your skin type and need. We receive consistently positive feedback from clients who use recommended skincare products. Continued use also helps maintain the benefits of your treatment(s) eg crows feet area and under eye bags/dark circles.

AlumierMD, Tebiskin, Image and OBAGI Skincare products are ONLY sold via authorised clinics like ours.
