Dark circles under the eyes are common when you are tired or sick. Unfortunately, some people are genetically prone to dark eye circles, and aging can cause hollows under the eyes. If you have perpetual dark eye circles, you may look old and tired even when you feel youthful and energetic. At Precision Medical Specialists, our dermatology team offers advanced dermatology treatments to diminish dark eye circles at our medical center near West Palm Beach.
What Causes Dark Circles Under the Eyes?
Dark circles not due to illness or lack of sleep may be caused by pigmentation or aging. Dark melanin in the skin under the eyes can be a genetic issue, but this can be made worse as you get older. Loss of collagen in the skin can make it more translucent, creating more pronounced dark circles under the eyes. In addition, loss of fat and tissue in the face with aging could create deeper hollows and tear troughs under the eyes.
While you can use makeup to cover up dark circles, it does not look natural and often is not as effective as you desire. A better option is professional treatment to address the cause of dark circles for a rejuvenated appearance.
Cosmetic Treatments for Undereye Dark Circles
Dr. Katherine Chiang is one of the top dermatologists in the West Palm Beach area. Dr. Chiang is more than a skin specialist – she cares about her patients and wants to ensure they are healthy. When considering the best option for dark eye circles treatment, Dr. Chiang will first consider health issues that may be causing hollows under the eyes for a holistic approach to restoring a healthy, youthful appearance.
If sleep or health issues are not to blame for dark circles, there are cosmetic options for diminishing these under-eye circles. If pigmentation is a problem, some topical creams can be prescribed that can lighten dark circles. Laser treatments can also be used for increasing collagen and improving the appearance of dark circles. Facial filler injections are another option for adding volume to tear troughs and skin to combat dark circles under the eyes.
