Dark Under Eye Circles

ALSO KNOWN AS TEAR TROUGHS OR UNDER EYE HOLLOWS

What causes them?

Dark circles can be caused by many things.  Tiredness, dehydration, thin skin showing though blood vessels, puffiness creating shadows, hollowness from the ageing process.  Even pigmentation changes under the eye.

They can create a tired appearance.


How can we treat them?

If they are caused by hollowness because the skin is getting thinner as part of the ageing process then hyaluronic acid fillers can be placed along the eye socket rim the plump up under the skin and disguise their appearance.

If they are caused by dehydration then skin booster injections can be placed under the eye to reflect light back out and brighten the skin up again.

If they are caused by pigmentation changes then skin lightening creams can be prescribed.

At The Facial Rejuvenation Clinic, our practitioner will assess you and analyze the under eye area.  She will then decide which treatment is appropriate for improving their appearance.
