Dark circles under the eyes are a common concern that makes you look tired and years older, often due to factors like genetics, aging, or lifestyle. As a reputable plastic surgery clinic offering comprehensive solutions, Sedgh Facial Plastic Surgery understands the importance of addressing this issue effectively to provide a rejuvenated and energetic appearance. Our clinic provides a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient, desiring to reduce dark circles under their eyes.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eyes are often caused by changes in the skin and tissue. Thinner skin and deeper tear troughs can contribute to the dark circles that appear under the eyes, especially as you get older. There are non-surgical treatments that can reduce the appearance of dark shadows and circles under the eyes, including:

  • Chemical Peels: Mild chemical peels can be utilized to exfoliate the skin gently, removing dead cells and stimulating the growth of new, healthier skin. This can result in a reduction of dark circles and an overall improvement in skin tone.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based ones, can effectively address hollow areas under the eyes that contribute to the appearance of dark circles. By restoring lost volume and providing support to the skin, these fillers create a smoother, more rejuvenated look.
  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatments like fractional laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) can target pigmentation, stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone. These procedures can significantly reduce the appearance of dark circles and enhance overall skin quality.

Non-surgical skin treatments can provide a refreshed appearance to the eyes. Results can last for several months or longer before touch-ups or repeated treatments are needed to maintain the desired look.

Surgical Treatments for Dark Circles

For more pronounced dark circles or bags under the eyes, plastic surgery may be the best option for lasting results. Some surgical treatments for dark circles include:

  • Fat Transfer: Fat transfer or fat grafting involves taking fat from one area of the body and injecting it strategically under the eyes to fill hollow areas and reduce the appearance of dark circles. This technique provides a natural and long-lasting solution.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): Specifically targeting the lower eyelids, a lower blepharoplasty procedure can address issues like under-eye bags, puffiness and laxity, which often contribute to the appearance of dark circles. It aims to tighten loose skin and reposition or remove excess fat to create a more refreshed look.

It is essential to note that the most suitable treatment option varies for each individual based on factors such as skin type, severity of dark circles and overall health. Our clinic emphasizes educating patients about available options and guiding them toward the most effective and appropriate solutions to achieve their desired outcomes.
