Dark circles, also known as rings or shadows, are a common skin ailment that can develop due to a variety of reasons. With advancing age, the skin under the eyes becomes thinner and loses collagen. This enhances the appearance of blood vessels beneath the eyes and makes the area seem darker than it is if there is a genetic predisposition or a general lack of sleep.
The appearance of dark circles makes one look tired, exhausted, unhealthy, and even old. Therefore, it is becoming quite common for dermatologists to offer dark circles treatment as a specialized cosmetic treatment.
For dark circles treatment, a dermatologist can recommend a wide range of topical creams, dietary changes, and skincare tips. However, to achieve the desired results for under-eye dark circle treatment, the following options are considered the most effective –
- Fractional laser resurfacing & Photo-rejuvenation reduce dark circles by increasing collagen production and decreasing pigmentation problems. Focused laser light is directed at the under-eye area to rejuvenate skin and lighten its appearance.
- Chemical peels improve overall skin quality, thereby lessening the appearance of dark areas under the eyes. Cosmetologists often recommend the use of laser treatments and chemical peels together for the best dark circle treatment.
- Fat injections or fat transfer is also recommended as a dark circle treatment. Fat is grafted from another body area and injected in the tear trough to treat dark circles. This plumping up of the skin improves the appearance of the darkened area and lightens it aesthetically.
- Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is an extreme option to permanently get rid of dark circles but is recommended by dermatologists in some advanced cases.
For under-eye dark circle treatment, a wide range of natural creams and under-eye gels are also recommended for topical application. However, the results achieved from such applications are only limited and temporary.
