Dark circles are commonly occurring darkness seen beneath one’s eyes. Depending upon the natural skin tone of an individual, these might appear in varying colors ranging from purple to dark brown or black.

Why do we see Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

Dark Circles Treatment in Chandigarh

There are a variety of reasons behind the formation of dark circles. Here are the main causative factors of seeing under-eye dark circles:

  • Hereditary: Those who have a family history of dark circles can be strongly influenced by the development of under-eye dark circles. In their early childhood, dark circles as inherited features may reveal themselves and as they get mature, the appearance of dark circles might intensify or fade away. Individuals might have very thin lower eyelids as their inherited trait that makes the underlying veins prominent, resulting in under-eye dark circles. African and Asian skin types are predisposed to have periorbital hyperpigmentation.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Many factors could contribute to secondary hyperpigmentation- the darkness caused by excess melanin deposition, beneath the eyes. These include environmental factors such as vitamin deficiencies (including Vitamin B12, E, K, and D), poor sleep, smoking, and sun overexposure.
  • Fat prolapse: In some people, the fat present in the lower eyelid may protrude forward causing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
  • Aging: As one gets older, the junction of the lower eyelid and cheekbone elongates and the appearance of tear troughs- the sunken or hollowness appearance of the eyelids, becomes more noticeable. Moreover, one experiences a loss of subcutaneous fat and there is a significant drop in collagen production around his/her eyes. The delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner and more translucent further leading to loss of elasticity and creepy under-eye skin. Blue reticular vessels around the eyes become prominent, thereby causing the under-eye dark circles.
  • Seasonal allergies and nasal congestion: Allergies cause the body to release histamine which in turn may cause the under-eye skin to become red and itchy. Rubbing and inflammation of the itchy under-eye skin may break the underlying blood vessels and cause bruising which later may leave behind pigmented hemosiderin as it heals, thereby causing under-eye dark circles.
    Nasal congestion results in poor circulation to the lower eyelid and the veins that drain from the eyes into the nose, to get larger and darker, thereby causing under-eye dark circles.

If one is experiencing under-eye dark circles issues, they can consult the experts at Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics.

How can doctor help get rid of under-eye dark circles?

The under-eye dark circles treatment in Chandigarh depends upon the sort of dark circles one has. If dark circles are the result of hyperpigmentation, it's best to start with skincare using products clinically proven to lighten the discoloration. The treatments preferred by the expert aesthetic personnel for under-eye dark circles at our clinic include:

  • Chemical Peels: This treatment usually involves the use of alpha-hydroxy acids like glycolic acid that helps remove the top layers of the under-eye skin where melanocytes are localized.
  • Dermal Fillers: Hyaluronic acid-based fillers when injected beneath the sunken eyes can help fill out the hollowness and make the whole under-eye area look brighter. Their effects last for 6 months to a year.
  • Mesotherapy: This treatment involves injecting a cocktail of skin-rejuvenating and lightening ingredients into the skin mesoderm of the under-eye area.
  • Growth Factor injections: Growth Factor injections are prepared by taking the patient’s blood sample and separating its components through a centrifuge to obtain the growth factor which is further used for treatment. When these injections are administered under the eyes with the help of a very fine needle or cannula they can encourage skin regeneration and boost new collagen production that helps strengthen and thicken the delicate under-eye skin. The desired results in over 2 months of the treatment.

Tips to Prevent Dark Circles

  • Go through a good skincare regime, including using sunscreens daily to ward off harmful UV rays from the sun; using antioxidant serums to avoid skin damage caused by environmental factors and pollution; regular medical-grade facials to prevent skin cell degradation
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Have a good sleep routine- It is recommended not to go to bed with gadgets, set the bedroom ready for sleep, and avoid anything that keeps the system working and keeps you awake. It's advised to avoid intake of sugars, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, excess water, heavy meals a few hours before sleep, and even high-intensity exercises
  • Have a healthy diet- Fruits and vegetables can increase antioxidant levels in the body and makes the skin clearer and brighter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does everyone get dark circles under their eyes?

No. Although it is a very common complaint to have dark circles, many people are lucky to not get them at all.

What can worsen the appearance of dark circles?

Dark circles may aggravate due to lot many reasons, including:

  • Fatigue: Dark circles may become more noticeable beneath the eyes because of oversleeping, excessive weariness, or long waking hours. Sleep deprivation can make the skin look pale and dull which reveals the dark tissues and blood vessels underlying the skin beneath the eyes. Not taking enough sleep can cause fluid accumulation behind the eyes resulting in puffy eyes. 
  • Dehydration: When there is less water intake, the skin beneath the eyes becomes dull and the eyes look sunken, thereby resulting in under-eye dark circles. Smoking and excessive alcohol intake can worsen dark circles' appearance as they cause dehydration.  
  • Reduced microcirculation: If there is no free flow of blood through the minute capillaries beneath the eyes, these capillaries can become apparent and make dark circles look worse. 
  • Underlying illness: Iron deficiency (Anemia) results in limited oxygen supply to the tissues beneath the eyes. It can dilate the blood vessels and cause the eye circles to darken.
  • Certain skin concerns: Eczema and contact dermatitis are itchy skin conditions that result in inflammation. The scratching or rubbing of the under-eye skin affected by these conditions can cause the dilation or breakage of blood vessels lying in that area and make them more noticeable.

Can I permanently get rid of my dark circles?

No, that’s not possible. However, there are many approaches to reducing the visibility and severity of dark circles. 

What are the natural remedies for dark circles?

Dark circles can be treated naturally by following healthy lifestyle habits. This includes eating a well-balanced diet, getting proper sleep, avoiding smoking and alcohol intake, and regularly exercising. Cold compresses applied to the under-eye skin for 20 minutes in breaks can help shrink blood vessels, reduce periorbital swelling (if any), and reduce dark circles. While sleeping, it's recommended to rest the head on pillows to prevent the pooling of excess fluids beneath the eyes. Refrigerated tea bags can be applied for 10-20 minutes under the eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles by reducing fluid retention, shrinking the blood vessels, and promoting blood circulation. Other remedy includes the use of skin care products that target the eyes and help fade away dark circles.
