Why Do I Have Dark Circles Under My Eyes?
Are dark eye circles making you look tired and older than you are? There are several things that could be causing your dark circles, beyond lack of proper sleep. Aging results in fat loss or sagging of the skin and can produce a hollowed appearance under your eyes.
Excessive dark pigment is common in people with brown or olive skin and it can be exacerbated by sun exposure. Genetics can also be a factor. You may have inherited hollows under your eyes, deep tear troughs, or hooded eyes that can cast shadows. But in most cases, dark circles are caused by unique properties of the very thin skin around the eye. Eyelid skin can also reveal the underlying blood vessels, at merely half a millimeter thick. There are often a number of contributing factors when it comes to dark under-eye circles. Because of this, you will achieve the best results by addressing each with the treatment designed for your specific circumstance.
Injectable fillers can soften some of the shadows created by hollowness and temporarily fill in under-eye depressions. They can also be used to camouflage the appearance of under-eye bags. The under-eye region is actually safer for injectable fillers than many other places on the face, including the lips. Using fillers will plump out the area and make you look less drawn.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture the top layer of skin, triggering your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This thickens the skin, disguising the musculature and blood vessels underneath that can cause discoloration. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and a quick procedure that requires no downtime. Microneedling results can be maintained with simple follow-up treatments once or twice a year.
Also known as blepharoplasty, an eyelid surgery is done to rejuvenate aging eyes, such as dark circles, and turn back the hands of time. Lower eyelid surgery focuses on removing fatty deposits beneath the eyes, plumping hollow areas, and restoring a smooth and youthful contour.
No one answer will resolve the condition completely. A combination of fillers and facial skin treatments will give you the best results. There are a number of ways to diminish under-eye circles that are making you look tired.
