There are a number of factors that can cause dark circles and to asses which treatment is best suited we always recommend a consultation. The most comon form of dark circles is often caused by nothing more than shadows cast by puffy bags under the eyes. This may be due to a lack of sleep or eye irritations and allergies.
The skin underneath the eye is extremely thin and sensitive and with ageing the skin can show more of the colour of the blood flow a which results in appearing darker. Combined with age lines this can appear exaggerated and very noticeable in a mirror with an overhead light.
As well as illness and medication, another cause of dark circles can be hyperpigmentation. This is where the melanin in the skin is produced around the eyes.
Our consultation process will help define what course of treatment we recommend.
Treatments for Dark Circles include:
- Dermal filler (Juvederm)
- Micro needling with Dermapen
- Fractora (RF radio frequency)
- Fat transfer
