Dark circles under the eyes can add several years to your appearance. Unlike other dark spots on the body, dark eye circles are not caused by swelling, trauma or an infection. The primary causes of dark circles under the eyes are extreme fatigue, allergies, heredity, thinning skin and sun exposure. It may seem like you will have to live with your dark eye circles the rest of your life, but that is not the case. These are safe and effective treatment options that can restore your youthful appearance by eliminating these dark circles.
Change in Sleep Habits
Since dark eye circles can be caused by fatigue, it is a good idea to start the treatment process by changing your sleeping habits. If you do not get a good amount of sleep each night, then your skin will naturally become paler over time. This will make your dark eye circle problems more prominent.
Dark Circle Creams
Since dark eye circles are a very common issue, there are several eye creams designed to fix your issues. Over-the-counter serums may be strong enough to fix a minor problem. If you have very dark eye circles, then you may need to get a prescription eye cream to cure your problem. These creams are designed to conceal your dark eye circles while also lightening the skin at the same time.
If your dark eye circles are not responding to the other popular treatment options, then you may have to undergo laser treatments. This medical procedure uses a laser to send bursts of light into the skin under your eyes. The light will be absorbed by the skin and under-eye blood vessels, which will help reduce your dark eye circles.
In some cases, fillers may be used to address dark eye circles. These injectable products can be used to minimize the appearance of discoloration under the eyes and fill in hollow areas.
