Dark Circles Under Eyes
There are a few major causes of the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. A combination of genetic, hereditary and environmental factors including volume loss, thin skin, superficial veins, and light reflecting properties of face constitute dark circles under eyes.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
HA dermal fillers have revolutionized cosmetic enhancement as these minimally invasive rejuvenation procedures require very little downtime and cause very little discomfort.
In some cases, fillers can be injected in the hollow areas of the lower eyelid region to lighten the dark circle look under the eye. This results in a smoother surface, removing the shadows that cause unsightly dark circles. The procedure lasts up to 18 months.
The success of this facial enhancement procedure depends on the injection technique, which varies with each type of filler, as it is both an art and a science. The physician must have a thorough understanding of HA fillers' capabilities and limitations.
A skincare regime will be recommended by the physician (most likely as part of a comprehensive skincare protocol in combination with other treatments).
