What are the causes for the dark circles under the eyes?
Dark circles can be caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, thin, translucent skin, dilated blood vessels, pigment accumulation, lack of sleep, stress, environmental factors and aging. Additionally, underlying medical conditions, such as allergies, sinusitis, and circulation problems, can also contribute to producing dark circles.
How to treat the dark circles?
At Living Clinic, we have safe and effective treatments for treatment of dark circles, even the darkest and deepest ones.
Treating dark circles requires a personalized approach, taking into account the underlying cause. Treatment options may include aesthetic medical procedures (non-invasive or minimally invasive) and/or pharmacological treatments.
Let’s explore some of the most effective options.
Dark circles treatment with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that helps keep the skin hydrated and plump. When treating dark circles with hyaluronic acid, it can be used to fill in sunken areas and soften the appearance of dark circles.
Dark circles treatment with Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional CO2 Laser is an advanced procedure that uses laser technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This can improve skin texture and reduce dark spots around the eyes.
Treatment of dark circles with Microneedling and Radiofrequency (with the addition of dermatological active ingredients)
Combining microneedling with radiofrequency, like Morpheus 8, is an effective approach to treating dark circles. This procedure stimulates collagen production and improves blood circulation in the eye area, thus reducing the appearance of dark circles.
Pharmacological treatment for dark circles
In some cases, pharmacological treatment may be recommended to treat dark circles. This may involve the use of dermatological creams with specific ingredients to lighten the skin under the eyes.
Treatment for dark circles with Skinbooster
Skinbooster is an injectable treatment that deeply hydrates the skin and improves its elasticity. It can be an effective option for treating dark circles, especially when skin dehydration contributes to the problem.
There will always be a specialized dermatological assessment, so that we can indicate the most appropriate solution for your specific case (which may be one of the solutions mentioned above or another that the dermatologist considers appropriate).
