What Are Dark Eye Circles?
Dark eye circles are a common condition that cause discoloration around the eyes, and they may be considered a natural sign of aging. They may cause swelling or darkness under or around the eyes. Their appearance may be affected by skin tone. In color, they may appear as:
- Dark brown
Generally speaking, they do not pose any risk to health or need to be a cause for concern. However, for many people, they are a cause of concern in terms of aesthetics.
What Causes Them?
Dark eye circles may impact almost anyone. However, there are certain factors that may increase a person’s chance of developing these dark circles, such as:
- Darker skin tone
- Older age
When people think of dark eye circles, they most often attribute their presence to a lack of sleep. While fatigue is a common culprit of these blemishes, there are other factors that may lead to their development. Factors include:
- Certain medical conditions (i.e. anemia, thyroid conditions, etc.)
- Continuous or too much rubbing/touching of the eyes
- Eye strain
- Poor sleeping habits
- Sun damage
- Thin skin or volume loss in the area
More than one of these concerns may be a factor in the development of dark eye circles.
How Can They Be Treated?
Although it may feel like dark eye circles are just a part of life, there are treatments that may be able to help manage and reduce their presence. There are some habits you could work on on your own, such as drinking more water and getting more sleep. If these at-home solutions do not help, you may consider:
- Chemical peels
- Filler injections
- Laser treatments
- Topical treatments
However, it is important to keep in mind that the cause of your dark circles will impact which treatments may benefit you. A consultation with our professionals in Santa Rosa Beach can help you better understand the potential causes of your experiences. This will help develop your personalized treatment plan for a renewed appearance.
