FAQ

Why do we get dark circles?

The skin under the eyes is the most pigmented and thinnest of the face. With ageing the pigmentation of this region can increase and become darker. In addition ageing results in the development of fine lines and wrinkles that are worsened by excessive sun exposure and smoking. The presence of dark circles below the eyes is also influenced by the breadth of the hollow that develops below the eyes with time. This ultimately leads to the development of tear troughs. The face has a complex arrangement of parcels of fat that lie immediately below the skin. These parcels of fat provide the skin with a youthful contour particularly around the cheeks and eyes. With age these parcels of fat lose volume and become deflated as well as drop downwards due to the effects of gravity, and stretching and laxity of the ligaments that hold them in place. Together these two factors lead to the development of dark circles under the eyes.

What else can make dark circles worse?

Many general health problems can increase the likelihood of developing dark circles. These include thyroid problems, kidney problems, multiple skin allergies and eczema. Lifestyle factors that can significantly worsen dark circles include excessive eye make-up, eye drops, excessive caffeine consumption, smoking and alcohol. Too much sun exposure without adequate protection such as sunscreen and sunglasses, can result in photo damage and deepen pre-existing fine lines and wrinkles. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can also worsen dark circles.

What treatment options are available?

There are no quick fixes in this regard. Excessive under eye skin and swelling may require surgical intervention. Where this is not necessary a combination approach of different non-invasive treatments are necessary to obtain positive results and where necessary lifestyle changes need to be endorsed.

How can I improve pigmentation under they eye?

Lifestyle changes necessary to kick off any treatment include stopping eye rubbing, stop smoking and all eye make up should be removed prior to going to sleep. Effective sunscreens and sunglasses should be used for UVA and UVB protection as well as overall reduction in sun exposure.

Dark pigmentation issues should be addressed initially with a change in daily skin care program. Products containing vitamin C, retinol, kojic acid and resveratrol antioxidant will help to brighten and thicken the skin under the eye as well help to increase fibroblast activity and thereby stimulate increased collagen and elastin production.

Dermalux LED phototherapy has been shown to provide general beneficial effects to skin under the eye and can aid in improvement of fine lines and wrinkles. This will improve the appearance of any excessive pigmentation under the eyes. It will also help to thicken skin and restore good skin health.

Platelet rich plasma has been used in the under eye region for dark circles as a solitary treatment and in combination with microneedling. A few studies have demonstrated improvements in under eye skin quality as well as helping to even out colour tone and stimulate a lightening effect.

How can I improve the hollowing out under my eyes?

Dermal fillers, specifically hyaluronic acid, are being increasingly used to help restore volume to the deep fat parcels that lie under the eye and hence address the hollowing effect that develops with age. They provide significant improvements in the tear trough deformity that forms and provide an immediate rejuvenating effect.
