Causes Of Dark Circles And Effective Treatments

Dark circles usually appear as a thin layer of skin around the eyes. Research has proven that women are affected more than men by this undesirable skin condition. A person having them feels embarrassed in front of others and looks much older and tired than in actual he/she is. Before moving on to the treatments, first, we have to understand how they are caused.

Causes of dark circles

Sleep deprivation, aging, genetics, and excessive sun exposure are four major causes of dark circles. With age, the skin around the eyes becomes thinner and thinner because of losing elasticity. They can also be caused by allergy, smoking, poor diet, dehydration or tiredness. When dark circles appear, the blood vessels under the eyes become more prominent which looks very unpleasing. To prevent them from occurring you need to have healthy sleep habits and a perfect diet plan.

Treatments

Several home remedies are there to get rid of dark circles but they are not as effective as medical treatments. Seek dermatologist’s help to make your dark circles less noticeable. Discuss your concern with the medical practitioner, he will diagnose the cause and will recommend you the right treatment.

Most effective treatments of dark circles are,

  1. Topical creams
  2. Chemical peels
  3. Mesotherapy
  4. Lasers
  5. Fillers
  6. Surgery

Topical creams

You can try topical products but usually, they fail to completely remove the dark circles. The products contain skin lightening and bleaching ingredients so when applied on the skin, brighten the pigmented areas and reduces the visibility of dark circles to some level. The effects are temporary so I’d not recommend this option.

Chemical peels

Another very effective solution to the problem of dark circles. The peels are applied to the skin around the eyes to boost the collagen production inside it. Most dermatologists use Trichloroacetic acid and glycolic acid peel to cure this skin concern.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is the most reliable and safest treatment of dark circles. An injection containing several effective ingredients are injected on the area around the eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles. You may require multiple sessions to get the desired outcome.

Lasers

Having dark circles under the eyes is an aesthetic problem, people treat them to enhance their physical appearance. You can undergo laser skin resurfacing if you want to treat your dark circles painlessly and safely. Lasers stimulate collagen production in the skin and make it look radiant, fresh and healthy.

Fillers

Many dermatologists recommend dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Getting “Fillers” is a good choice because its results last longer than other dark circles treatments. It is well suitable for the people whose dark circles are caused due to loss of fatty tissues under the eyes.

Surgery – blepharoplasty

Although it is designed to remove eye bags, it can improve the appearance of dark circles as well. Eyes are extremely delicate so the surgical method is rarely preferred. Consider this option only if all the other methods have failed to deliver the desired results to you.
