Dark circles around the eyes have many etiologies and they are often a combination of several. A consultation and exam are needed to determine the best treatment options.
Dark circles can be caused by:
- Poor sleep
- Superficial veins
- Volume loss
Depending on the cause, treatment can include one of more of the following:
- Medical evaluation
- Lasers for pigmentation or vessels
One easy test to see if pigmentation is the primary problem is to move the skin around the eye and if the dark circles move, it is most likely a pigmentation problem and needs laser treatment at the very least.
Fillers can improve areas of volume loss. This is always done using cannulas at The Aesthetic Clinique for improved safety, less bruising, and less downtime. By improving the volume loss, shadows around the eye become less obvious and the dark circles appear better.
