Dr Zamani’s guide to tackling Dark Circles
Dark circles under the eyes are a common concern for many people. They can make you look tired, aged, and can affect your overall appearance and confidence. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Dermal fillers are an effective treatment option for dark circles caused by volumetric changes. Dermal fillers used in the tear trough are typically made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body and can help add volume for a more youthful appearance. The results of dermal fillers typically last for several months. Treatment is relatively painless with minimal downtime. Alternatives to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers include polynucleotides like Nucleofill Soft.
Light Eyes Ultra is another injectable treatment option to help the appearance of dark lower eyelid circles. A meso cocktail of vitamins and minerals are injected into multiple areas on the upper and lower eyelid to help improve discoloration, reduce puffiness, and stimulate the production of collagen. The treatment is usually done in a series of sessions, and the results can last for several months.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections can also be used to add volume to the under-eye area, stimulate collagen production, and improving skin texture and tone. PRP injections involve using ones own blood plasma to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and collagen production. These treatments can be effective in reducing the appearance of dark circles and improving the overall appearance of the under-eye area.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that can help reduce the appearance of dark circles. The treatment involves using a laser to target the blood vessels that are causing the dark circles. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, which causes them to collapse and be absorbed by the body. Laser therapy is quick and requires minimal downtime.
Surgery is a more invasive treatment option for dark circles. The procedure involves removing excess fat and skin from under the eyes, which can help reduce the appearance of dark circles in the correct candidate.
There are several treatment options available for dark circles under the eyes depending on the presentation of the eyes and the issues at hand. If you are interested in treating dark circles, we can help determine which treatment option is right for you.
