Treatment for Dark Circles around Eyes

The delicate skin below our eyes is thin and is not as well endowed with oil glands as the rest of the body and is a constant reminder of the speed at which we age. This sensitive area requires very specific treatments that can powerfully re-model the elasticity and collagen strength of the skin. Consequently as we age, the skin gets dry and wrinkled and the veins in the lower eye area appear more prominent. The padding over the orbital bone is reduced and the lower eyelid skin lies pressed on the orbital bone giving the appearance of dark circles. Other causes are lack of sleep, nasal congestion, hormonal changes or certain drugs.

Previously there were no treatments for this shadowing under the eye apart from home products and eye creams that improved the condition minimally. Now with the advent of dermal fillers such as Juvederm, dark circle rejuvenation is possible.

Take a good look at your under eye circles - is there a hollow trough between the base of the puff and the top of your cheek? Surgery to address tear trough hollows is not always appropriate but tear-trough rejuvenation with dermal fillers brings back youthful volume and contours the lower eyelids in a safe and minimally invasive way. You'll have a series of micro-injections along the line of the hollow using Juvederm - hyaluronic gel filler - followed by a little gentle massage to distribute the gel evenly. There is only minimal discomfort and the procedure only takes about 10 mins. But it's best to seek out an experienced doctor to carry out the treatment as the results are very injector dependent. There could be mild swelling and a 10 % chance of bruising around the eyes but this soon settles. You'll see the results instantly and the effects last around 12 to 18 months.

We offer traditional therapy (such as home prescriptives with topical ingredients such Vit K, retinol and cucumber extract which targets dark circles and puffiness in the eye area.

Asian skin is prone to excessive freckling, hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Dark patches around the eyes, caused by hormonal fluctuations, are also a serious problem for Asian women. As this condition is worsened by UV exposure, proper sun protection is essential.
