Dark circles under the eyes
Under-Eyes dark circles are a common complaint in the field of Cosmetology. Several factors can result in dark circles under the eyes. Other patient concerns that need to be addresses include the treatment & prevention of wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness in the eye contour area.
Causes of Dark Circles:
- Loss of collagen & thinning of the skin may allow the blue color of the blood vessels beneath to-be-seen as dark areas.
- Enlarged blood vessels beneath the skin may also give a dark appearance.
- A pigment from broken blood vessels called hemosiderin may cause such dark areas.
- Increased skin pigmentation may also cause these circles.
- Hollow areas or wrinkles may cause shadows that appear darker.
How can we treat dark circles under the eyes?
To get rid of the dark circles we need to treat the cause of the problem; so we need to improve the skin texture and rebuild the collagen, improve the circulation to remove the deposited pigments, treat abnormally dilated vessels, improve hollow areas and wrinkles, if these are contributing to the problem.
Fortunately, there are modern creams that can help treat the dark circles & rejuvenate the area around the eyes.
- Cold compress particularly using green tea bags can help reduce swelling and shrink dilated blood vessels.
- Get enough sleep can help improve the circulation & rebuild the collagen.
- Elevate your head while sleeping if there is additional puffiness.
