Dark circles are caused by changes in the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) beneath the delicate skin under the eyes.
The area under your eyes can appear more visible due to constricted blood vessels, leading to a darker under eye area than the rest of your skin. You may have dark circles that are purplish or bluish in color, and the severity of your condition depends on your skin tone and quality.
As you begin to age, the skin around your eyes becomes thinner, making dark circles, hallows, and under eye bags more prominent.
The team at Juno Aesthetics commonly treats the tear trough, which is the area between your lower eyelid and cheek. The natural aging process can cause volume loss in this area.
If you have a close family member that has dark circles, you may be more prone to developing under eye circles yourself.
Some people also have excess melanin in their skin that causes pigmentation problems. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production, which may include hormonal influences and lifestyle factors like getting too much sun exposure. Not getting enough sleep may also contribute to dark circles.
Some medical conditions may lead to dark circle development, such as thyroid disease and allergies. Nutritional deficiencies might also play a role as well. Several vitamin deficiencies are linked to dark circles, including vitamin B12, D, E, and K.
Lifestyle changes like reducing salt in diet, taking vitamin supplements, getting quality sleep, and using a cool compress can help to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
Fillers are a minimally-invasive treatment option to address the thinning skin under your eyes. It can fill in hollows to make under eye pigmentation less visible.
Radiofrequency energy, also commonly known as RF, creates heat to stimulate blood circulation and improve under eye circles.
