Dark under eye circles are one of the most persistent beauty woes faced by women of all ages. You can get your eight hours of sleep, apply all of your skin-brightening beauty products, drink plenty of water, and eat as healthy as possible, and still find yourself staring at some serious under eye circles.
There are a variety of distinct conditions which can be causing your under eye area to appear lacklustre, each of which require a different treatment technique. Below are the three most common cosmetic concerns patients have regarding their eye area.
Dark Eyelid Colour
This is the typical condition faced by many of us when we don’t get enough sleep or are feeling a little depleted. The skin under the eyes is thinner than the surrounding skin and the purple muscle beneath the eye can sometimes show through, especially when we are tired. Unfortunately, there is no cosmetic treatment which can treat this condition. The only solution is to invest in a concealer with a formula that can hide your dark circles and to try to get some more shut-eye.
Bags under the eyes, caused by puffy lower eyelids, are a common side effect of ageing. The delicate skin around the eyes is often the first to show the signs of ageing, slackening and causing the eyelids to appear puffy and bulky. A shadow falls into the groove underneath the bags and the person looks tired and older. While a lack of sleep often exaggerates this condition, no amount of sleep can correct eyelids that have become puffy due to ageing. Injectable filler can be used to reduce the appearance of under eye bags, as a non-surgical option. This method works especially well for patients with mild or moderate under-eye bags, whereas those with more severe conditions usually require blepharoplasty to get the best results. Lower eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can remove under eye bags and rejuvenate the entire under eye area, creating a healthy and youthful appearance.
Hollow Eyes Syndrome
Fatty tissue loss is one of the major cosmetic concerns associated with ageing, and the eyes are not immune to deterioration due to a lack of volume. The area under the eye often loses fatty tissue, creating a hollow groove. This causes shadows to form and produces the illusion of constant dark under eye circles. Hollow eyes syndrome can be treated through the use of injectable fillers. The filler evens out the area under the eye, removing the hollow and, in turn, the shadows which create a tired, washed out appearance. The best thing about these fillers is that they stimulate your skin’s own natural structural protein production, meaning your appearance will improve naturally.
