Your lifestyle can influence whether you get dark circles and how severe they are. If you smoke, drink too much alcohol or don’t have a very high quality diet, you are more susceptible. Excess sun exposure without the use of sunscreen can cause wrinkles prematurely and these can make dark circles worse.
If you are unhappy with your appearance, there are various treatments you can try.
This treatment can tighten the skin around the eyes to help reduce the loss of volume effect.
Laser therapy can destroy melanin producing cells and reduce darkness considerably.
If you want a solution that is less invasive than surgery, you could try bleaching creams that lighten the skin. You should use sunscreen to protect your skin from any side-effects. Our Doctors can advise further on the options here.
Fillers such as Juvederm Volbella are commonly used to mask the volume loss under the eye. This procedure is called a Tear trough filler. Our Doctors have years of experience in assessing and treating this problem.
