How To Remove Dark Circles Under The Eyes

One of the most common concerns that is bought to our attention by patients is the dark circles under their eyes. There are a variety of reasons why this can be caused from obvious lack of sleep, dehydration or lose of volume under the eyes. Whatever the reason, it’s an area we can feel self-conscious about and no matter how much concealer we apply, they never really go. So how do we treat it?

Treatments For Dark Circles Under the Eyes

A popular treatment to help combat dark circles is Tear Trough Rejuvenation. Using dermal filler injections, we are able to treat the area and reintroduce volume which will reduce the signs of dark circles and waken the eyes up. This treatment takes up to 30 minutes and uses a small amount of numbing anaesthetic, however, is virtually painless. Recovery time is quick and although you may have some slight swelling in the injected area, this should settle down within the next 10 days.

The effect of the treatment will be seen straight away but full effect will take place 2-week post treatment, where you will see your full results.

Skin Boosters are also another alternative to brighten up the eyes, the treatment helps awaken our own collagen and elastin production restoring a youthful glow and significantly improving pigmentation. Using a combination of hyaluronic acid and succinic acid, together they can reduce pigmentation, detox the skin and kick start our skin cells.

Using a needle, the product is injected across the area creating small bumps, the product then breaks down within the skin and work to combat skin concerns through hydration and stimulation. Downtime varies between patients, on average this is 2-3 days, raised red bumps under the skin may be visible for up to 72 hours although this can be covered with makeup.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) can also be recommended for treatment under the eyes, PRP works by reintroduces your own blood back into the skin’s tissue, which rejuvenates and promotes new healthy cells whilst healing damaged ones. Unlike traditional cosmetic procedures PRP is revolutionising the aesthetic world, in an unconventional way. Firstly, your blood is taken like a normal blood test, then spun into a system which separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood elements creating a high concentration. This is then reintroduced to your body to increase collagen, cell growth, and improve your blood supply and results in younger fresher looking skin.

  • Cold compress, by applying a cold compress to the eye area every morning you can reduce the puffiness of the area. Some people choose to use ice, a cold flannel or a cold teaspoon to apply pressure in the area.
  • Sleep seems obvious but sometimes we forget just how important sleep is. Not only will it improve your physical and mental state but also help reduce the appearance of tiredness, especially under the eyes.
  • Hydration, again, this might seem like an obvious one, but the benefits of water are endless. Drinking your 2 litres of water a day can help reduce signs of ageing, tiredness and reduce puffiness.
  • Eye creams, there are 1000’s of eye creams out there to choose from, we recommend eye creams with vitamin C in to help brighten the under-eye area. This can be applied twice a day as part of your morning and evening routine to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
  • Under eye patches, you may have seen your favourite celebrities don them before award ceremonies as part of their routine but it’s something you can incorporate in to your everyday life. Under eye patches help intensify topical treatment to that area and when left on for 10-15 minutes can leave the eye area glowing.
