Do you have dark circles below the eyes that are bothering you? You’re not alone; it’s a common problem that affects both men and women. However, while some women are able to disguise it effectively with cosmetics, others ask the question – ‘What can I do to treat dark circles under my eyes.’
What causes dark circles under the eyes?
Dark circles under the eyes are often the result of volume loss in the tear trough, which creates a depression just beneath the eyes that sometimes extends to the cheek area. The depression creates a shadowy look and gives the eyes a tired, exhausted appearance. Extra pigment in the under-eye area can also look like ‘dark circles’ below the eyes.
What can you do to Treat Dark Circles Under your Eyes?
If the dark circles are a result of a depression then it can be corrected non-surgically with the use of dermal fillers, particularly hyaluronic fillers. Hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm can significantly improve dark circles under the eyes, because they fill in tear troughs. This gives the area a smooth appearance, as it evens out the contours that stretch from below the eyes to the top of the cheeks.
Advanced skin care products such as SkinCeuticals AOX Eye Gel can also be used to treat dark circles under the eyes. SkinCeuticals AOX Eye Gel is an eye serum that contains antioxidants and botanicals that refresh and protect the skin below the eyes, and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
