Why choose us as your hair and skin clinic in Australia?

An important health & safety message

We strongly recommend patients check if their PRP provider performing the PRP hair or skin treatment is performed at a minimum by a registered nurse. Registered nurses are trained in patient safety and hygiene protocols.

We also recommend patients confirm if an Australian medical doctor has contributed to the treatment protocols.

What Are Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Dark circles under eyes can happen to anyone. The condition may not have as much to do with your sleep schedule as you think. Genetics can be largely to blame.

The skin under the eyes is thinner than elsewhere on the face. Because your skull is concave in that area, the skin tone there can appear blue, purple or brown.

Plus, many people have tear trough hollows. These are the indentations that appear at an angle from the inner corner of the eye to the cheek. Sometimes, the skin in this area is darker than the rest of your face.

If you don’t have a lot of fat in this area, it can appear gaunt and sunken. Most people’s under eye circles usually become more prominent as they age too. That’s because your cells may lose elasticity. You might develop bags under the eyes as your skin changes with every birthday. Dehydration, your diet and certain medications can also worsen the condition.

What Treatments Are Available for Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Your lifestyle can influence your dark circles. Wearing sunscreen, covering that part of your face with sunglasses and drinking plenty of water can optimise your genetic destiny. But you can get an added boost with certain cosmetic treatments.

Dermal Fillers can fill in the cheekbones. This can add plumpness and prevents the loss of volume in your cheeks from making your eyes sag. Doing this can add structural support to the under eye area and can diminish tear trough hollows and darkness. Adding volume to the cheeks can also be necessary for correcting puffy under eye bags.

Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatments

Professional skin treatments for circles under the eyes aim to reverse the loss of volume, sun damage in the eye area, and the effect of tear trough hollows under the eyes. If you have fine lines and wrinkles, or dark eye circles that make you look tired, we can provide you with a practical eye treatment that delivers results.

Our treatment options for dark circles under eyes include PRP skin treatment and dermal fillers.

Discover a youthful, revitalised appearance with our Dermal Filler under-eye treatment, a highly sought-after solution for those looking to combat signs of aging or improve the appearance of dark circles.

Our clinic, one of Australia’s leading destinations for advanced skin care, uses top-of-the-line dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid—a substance naturally produced by the body. When injected into the skin under the eyes, these fillers act as a support structure, effectively reducing the sunken appearance that often accompanies aging or fatigue. The hyaluronic acid in the filler serves a dual purpose; not only does it provide structural support, but it also helps the skin retain moisture.

This results in a visibly diminished appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, and fine lines, leaving you with smoother, more radiant skin. This treatment is a quick, minimally invasive way to achieve long-lasting improvements, making it one of our most popular under-eye solutions for both men and women across Australia.

PRP Skin Treatment

At Hair & Skin Science, we proudly offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy as one of our advanced solutions for treating dark circles and rejuvenating the skin under your eyes. PRP therapy is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedure that utilises the healing properties of your own blood to stimulate skin regeneration.

During this treatment, we draw a small sample of your blood and use a specialised centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. This concentrated plasma is rich in growth factors, which play a key role in cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Once prepared, the PRP is meticulously injected into the targeted skin area under your eyes. The growth factors in the PRP work to enhance blood supply, increase collagen production, and accelerate natural healing processes.

The end result is a noticeable improvement in skin texture and thickness, effectively reducing the appearance of dark circles and giving you a more youthful, refreshed look. This revolutionary treatment has gained immense popularity in Australia for its natural, long-lasting results and minimal downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

At Hair & Skin Science, we understand the concerns surrounding dark circles under the eyes and the desire for long-lasting solutions. While the treatments we offer can significantly reduce the appearance of dark circles, it’s essential to clarify that most treatments are not permanent.

The longevity of results varies depending on several factors, including the underlying cause of the dark circles, individual skin characteristics, lifestyle factors, and the specific treatment chosen. Here’s a detailed overview of common treatments and their expected duration:

Topical Treatments: Certain topical treatments, such as creams containing ingredients like vitamin C, retinol, or hyaluronic acid, can help improve the appearance of dark circles by hydrating the skin, reducing inflammation, and promoting collagen production. While these treatments can provide temporary results, they typically require ongoing use to maintain the effects.

Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid can be used to volumize the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of hollows and shadows that contribute to dark circles. Results from dermal fillers typically last anywhere from 6 months to 1 year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves using the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, derived from their blood, to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. While PRP can improve the appearance of dark circles, multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results, and maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the effects over time.

It’s essential to consult with one of our experienced clinicians to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific concerns and goals. During your consultation, we will assess your individual needs, discuss expected outcomes, and provide personalised recommendations to help you achieve optimal results.

While treatments for dark circles under the eyes may not be permanent, they can significantly improve the appearance of the area and boost your confidence. At Hair & Skin Science, we are committed to providing safe, effective, and tailored solutions to address your skincare concerns and help you look and feel your best.
At Hair & Skin Science, we understand that downtime can be a concern for individuals seeking treatments for dark circles under the eyes. The extent of downtime associated with dark circle treatments can vary depending on the specific treatment modality chosen and individual factors such as skin type and sensitivity. Here’s a detailed overview of the potential downtime associated with common dark circle treatments:

Topical Treatments: Topical treatments such as eye creams or serums typically have minimal to no downtime. Patients can apply these products at home as part of their daily skincare routine without experiencing any disruption to their regular activities.

Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers are a popular option for addressing hollows and shadows under the eyes. While some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites immediately following treatment, these side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days to a week. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, processing it to extract platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the under-eye area to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. While some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites, downtime is typically minimal, and patients can resume their usual activities shortly after treatment.

It’s important to discuss potential downtime and recovery expectations with your clinician during the consultation process. Our experienced team at Hair & Skin Science will provide personalized guidance and support to ensure a smooth and comfortable treatment experience tailored to your individual needs and lifestyle.

When it comes to dermal fillers and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for dark circles under the eyes, here’s what you can expect in terms of the timeline for seeing results:

Dermal Fillers:
Immediate Results: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, provide immediate volume enhancement to the under-eye area. You’ll likely notice an instant improvement in the appearance of hollowing or dark circles as the filler adds volume and smooths out the contour of the area.

Short-Term Results (Within Days to Weeks): After the initial treatment, there may be some mild swelling or bruising, which typically subsides within a few days to a week. As any temporary side effects resolve, you’ll continue to see improvement in the appearance of dark circles over the following days and weeks.

Mid to Long-Term Results (Months to Years): The longevity of results from dermal fillers varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors. In general, results can last anywhere from several months to up to two years. Regular maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the desired effect over time.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):
Gradual Improvement Over Time: PRP treatments for dark circles involve using your body’s own platelet-rich plasma, which is extracted from a small sample of your blood and then injected into the under-eye area. While PRP is not a quick fix like dermal fillers, it offers gradual improvement in the appearance of dark circles over time.

Short-Term Results (Within Weeks): After the initial PRP treatment, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising, which typically resolves within a few days to a week. However, visible improvement in dark circles may take several weeks to become noticeable as the growth factors in PRP stimulate collagen production and tissue regeneration.

Mid to Long-Term Results (Months to Years): The full benefits of PRP treatment usually become more apparent in the following months as collagen production is stimulated, resulting in firmer, thicker skin and diminished dark circles. While individual responses may vary, many clients experience long-lasting improvement in the appearance of dark circles with PRP, with results lasting for up to a year or more in some cases.

It’s important to consult with a qualified skincare professional to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific concerns and expectations. They can provide personalised recommendations based on your individual needs and desired outcomes.
