Dark Circles Under Eyes

Dark circles are mostly caused by genetics. A lifestyle with too much sun exposure and dehydration can also exacerbate the appearance of dark circles. Dark circles may become more prominent as people age because your cells can lose elasticity over time.

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.

How Can You Correct 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

The 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 under-eye bags and dark circles include PRP skin treatment and dermal fillers.

Dermal Fillers

A dermal filler consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that the body naturally produces. A filler injection under the eye is a skin tightening treatment that supports the area, alleviating a sunken appearance. The filler also helps the skin to retain moisture, which reduces dark spots, wrinkles, and lines.

With a dermal filler, results may vary, depending on the elasticity you have left in your skin and the volume loss in the area.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

With PRP therapy, we inject platelet-rich plasma from your own blood into the skin under your eye. The platelets contain growth factors, which improve blood supply and increase collagen production. The result is healthier, thicker skin.

Very honest feedbacks provided each session. Positive encouragement through the journey. The beginning of my journey I was not sure and didnt see results for a while however when looking back at my session one photos to my seventh session I was amazed at the results and was encouraged to continue on. The team never gave up and provided positive alternative in my journey to ensure my hair growth results were prominent. Highly recommended treatment and beautiful team.

I have tried multiple tablets and hair supplements, which have never worked for me. When I came across the CBD clinic and I decided to try 6 PRP sessions after looking at the reviews. Throughout the treatment all the girls have been amazing, and made my experience as comfortable as possible. I am so grateful for this service. I am only halfway through the treatment, and the results have given me much more confidence already! I have seen a noticeable amount of hair growth in areas which I am lacking. I highly recommend this PRP treatment!

Amazing Experience and Transformation ! Initially I thought of searching some hair treatment places near me. Fortunately enough i found this place. I took 6 PRP sessions and I’m pleasantly surprised with the kind of transformation it has done to my hair. I’m planning to continue my treatment with them for another 6 sessions. Trust me if you’re on the verge of hair baldness this will save you. A special thanks to the amazing staff who were welcoming and gentle during the treatment sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

There are different types of dermal fillers. However, the most common contain hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and can provide moisture and elasticity. 

Hyaluronic acid usually stays in the tear trough for about six to nine months. However, the length of time can depend on your body structure, your metabolism and the type and amount of filler that’s used. One of the benefits of using hyaluronic acid for the procedure is that it can be reversed if you’re not happy with the way it looks. 

You can go back to your daily routine immediately after this procedure. But you should avoid exercise for 24 hours. Patients with dermal fillers should not get a facial massage for two weeks after treatment.
