Dark circles appear under the eyes and often give us the appearance of looking tired, even if we are not.
These dark circles can have an impact on a youthful appearance and also self confidence but easily treatable by our specialist team of experts.
What Causes Dark Circles Under The Eyes?
There are 2 causes of Dark Circles – pigmentation and fat loss under the eye, causing a hollow which then casts a shadow under the eye (the so called tear trough). The vast majority of people do tend to have both issues and then the shadow accentuates the pigmentation. It is unusual to have just one or the other.
There can be a wide variety of causes for pigmentation, and it is difficult to treat especially if it is inherited. The results are usually modest at best. PRP (also known as the Vampire Facial) can help in this case, as well as gentle Chemical Peels and creams that suppress pigmentation can also be really helpful.
Fat Loss Under the Eyes
Fat is most often lost during sudden weight loss which then causes a hollow under the eye. Some find that it is there from teenage years or even childhood and never resolves. In this situation Tear Trough Filler or the 8 Point Face Lift will really help.
Fat Loss in the Cheeks
Sometimes fat loss in the cheeks will contribute to the sunken appearance around the eyes and this results in a hollow appearance. This is best treated by the 8 Point Facelift technique.
