What are Dark Circles Under your Eyes?

Dark circles are a common problem faced by many individuals; however, it can result from various factors. It is important to first determine whether the dark circles are due to pigmentation of the skin or due to hollowness in the tear trough region. Understanding this variety of causes is essential for implementing effective prevention and treatment strategies.

 

Top 5 Causes of Dark Circles Under your Eyes

Dark pigmentation in the undereye region can be attributed to various factors including:

  1. Lack of Sleep: Lack of sleep can lead to blood vessels under the eyes becoming more visible.
  2. Genetics: Genetics may lead to dark circles as some individuals inherit thinner skin or a predisposition to pigmentation problems.
  3. Aging: Aging contributes to collagen loss and makes the skin under the eyes appear thinner and more prone to shadows.
  4. Sun Exposure: Sun exposure causes melanin production, worsening pigmentation.
  5. Life Factors: Lifestyle factors such as stress, poor nutrition, and dehydration can contribute to the development of dark circles.

Treatments For Dark Circles Caused by Hollowness in the Tear Trough Region

Once the cause of the dark circles is determined then appropriate preventative measures and treatment plans can be implemented.

If the dark circles are caused by hollowness in the tear trough region, then treatments such as:

Treatment # 1: Dermal fillers

Dermal Fillers made up of Hyaluronic Acid are often used by practitioners to replace the volume loss in the region which in turn, reduces the appearance of shadows cast in this area, leading to a more youthful and plump appearance.

Treatment # 2: PRP, Microneedling or Retinoids

PRP, Microneedling and Retinoids can also be used in conjunction with hyaluronic acid as they all stimulate collagen production which can reduce the appearance of hollowness and replace the volume lost.

It is important to note that if there is significant volume loss, Dermal Fillers would need to be utilized first as PRP, Microneedling or Retinoids can’t make a significant difference in these cases.

 

Treatments For Dark Circles Caused by Pigmentation in the Tear Trough Region

If the dark circles are caused by pigmentation in the tear trough region, then several topical treatments including:

Treatment # 1: Retinoids

Retinoids help increase collagen production, improve skin texture and help the skin become thicker which can over time significantly improve dark circles.

Treatment # 2: Vitamin C and Hydroquinone Creams

Vitamin C and hydroquinone both have brightening capabilities which with regular use brighten the circle circles. Please note that hydroquinone should be used cautiously and under the recommendation of a professional.

Treatment # 3: Chemical Peels and Microneedling

Chemical Peels and Microneedling can exfoliate the skin and reduce the dark circle appearance. Microneedling also stimulates collagen production and when used with brightening serums can produce great results.

Treatment # 4: Laser Therapies

Certain laser therapies which cause skin resurfacing also help with collagen production and exfoliation of the tear trough region which can also improve the appearance of dark circles.
