What Treatments Are Available for Dark Circles?
Tired of trying to cover up dark under-eye circles that make you look perpetually tired and older than you really are? If so, you should know there are several ways you can permanently improve the appearance of dark circles or even eliminate them all together.
Read on to learn about three of the most effective cosmetic treatments for dark under-eye circles.
Chemical peels feature one or more exfoliating acids that resurface, smooth, and brighten the skin. But not all chemical peels are safe for the ultra-delicate skin under your eyes.
In fact, most chemical peels are far too harsh for application in the area where you likely have dark circles. But one peel — the VI Peel — is gentle enough to use on dark circles, and it’s remarkably effective, too.
Keep in mind, though, that if you’re interested in using peels to improve the appearance of dark circles, consistency is key. Your circles won’t disappear after a single treatment, but repeated application of the VI Peel can help lighten your skin. It can help get rid of acne, too.
If your dark under-eye circles are caused by shadowing, dermal fillers can help. Often, the normal aging process causes facial fat tissue to shift to new places. And when that happens, the area beneath your eyes can become more sunken than it was when you were younger.
A hollower under-eye area will appear dark even if the skin itself isn’t dark simply because light hits your face differently, causing shadowing under your lower eyelid.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can add volume to a hollow under-eye area, so that area no longer experiences a shadow effect. By filling in those areas that have lost fat tissue over the years, you can reduce or even eliminate your dark circles.
Cosmetic treatments involving radiofrequency energy, such as AGNES radiofrequency microneedling, can elicit a dramatic improvement in the appearance of dark under-eye circles.
Radiofrequency treatments stimulate the production of collagen, which helps firm and plump the skin.
Treatments with the AGNES radiofrequency microneedling device can also reduce or eliminate under-eye bags that may exist alongside dark circles. Wrinkles and skin laxity will also improve after just a single radiofrequency treatment session.
Even better, results are comparable to those produced by more expensive and invasive surgical procedures, and treatments cost just a small fraction of the price of surgery.
