How Do Dark Eye Circles Form and How to Get Rid of Them
Dark eye circles are a common problem for many people. They can be caused by lack of sleep, allergies, or the natural aging process. There is no single treatment that will work for everyone and it might require several treatments to get rid of them completely. Luckily, there are some dark eye circles removal options to help reduce dark eye circles and they don’t involve surgery!
What Causes Dark Eye Circles?
Dark eye circles are caused by a combination of factors. The skin around your eyes is very delicate and thin, so it tends to show all the blood vessels underneath. Blood in these vessels is blue in color and gives off a bluish tinge on the skin surrounding them. This makes the area under your eye appear darker than the surrounding skin. In addition, if you’ve ever been overly tired or were lacking sleep, you’ll notice dark bags under your eyes that make your entire face look tired!
What Causes Tear Troughs?
Tear troughs are a common condition that is caused by weak muscles around the eyes. This issue can be hereditary and is more common in women than men. Tear troughs are simply an indentation under your cheekbones that looks like a parenthesis or bracket on each side of your nose. The skin tends to look thinner and darker than the surrounding area. As you age, this problem will gradually get worse without proper treatment!
Non-Surgical Treatments for Dark Eye Circles and Eye Troughs
Dermal Fillers for Dark Eye Circles or Tear Troughs
Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical dark eye circles removal treatment to reduce dark eye circles and tear troughs. These injections are made from hyaluronic acid, which is the same substance that your body naturally produces over time. This filler treatment has been proven to reduce the appearance of dark circles and tear troughs, highlighting your facial features instead.
Hyaluronic acid under the skin will help plump up the area, making it look less hollowed out and more firm. This natural dermal filler can be used safely in most adults who have healthy skin around their eyes. The results won’t last forever, so you may need an occasional touch up!
How is Dark Eye Circle Filler Being Performed?
A proper consultation and facial assessment will be required before you begin treatment. Topical numbing cream is then applied to the skin for 20 minutes. The dermal filler is precisely placed over your tear troughs or dark eye circles using a small syringe. You might need more than one injection to get rid of the problem completely, so make sure you schedule follow up appointments!
Laser Treatments for Eye Bags or Dark Eye Circles
If you are not a good candidate for dermal fillers, there are other treatments available. The most common is laser skin tightening and lifting. This treatment can be used to get rid of fine lines around the eyes and tear troughs. It’s important to bring this problem under control before it gets worse in order to prevent further damage!
The results from laser treatments are temporary; however, because your body will naturally replace the lost collagen over time. The recovery time depends on how much is treated at one time, but typically lasts less than several days in most cases.
