Dark Circle Reduction

Dark circles or periorbital pigmentation is not an uncommon entity. There are multiple causative factors for dark circles – hereditary, allergies, iron deficiency, vitamin deficiency and eye strain. Occasionally, when there is loss of fat under the lower eyelid it leads to hollowing and darkening in that area – the tear trough deformity which gives an illusion of darkening of the skin.

Treatment of dark circles requires identification and correction of the causative factor. Apart from topical medications in-clinic treatments like chemical peels, lightening lasers, microneedling, mesotherapy, platelet rich plasma can help reduce dark circles to a great extent. Incase of hollow under eyes, volume replacement with fillers gives a great outcome in rejuvenating the under eye area.
