Dark Circles Treatment
It’s all about your eyes!
The delicate skin below our eyes requires very specific treatments that can encourage dramatic changes by boosting the collagen production, removing the fat padding and dark circles.
Dark circles are a common problem today because of increase in sleep disorders, working at night shifts, and stressful lifestyles. They are pigmented areas around the eyes, usually brown or purple in color differing from the rest of the complexion. This makes them a sore to the eyes, not only to the sufferer but to those that look at him/her.*
The Dermapen dark circle treatment helps minimize the fine lines and restore collagen in the skin around the eyes. The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself. Immediately after the dermapen treatment, your skin dissolves old damaged tissue and replaces it with new tissue. The platelet rich serum is applied around the eyes and the dermapen effectively stimulates new skin by micro-needling the surface, making the serum penetrate deeper into the skin. This precise stimulation can be done quite quickly and there is no downtime, just mild redness for a couple of hours. The final result will be seen in four to six sessions with smoother, firmer and younger looking skin around the eyes.
Carbon Peel with Lutronic Spectra is an efficient dark circles treatment for the lower eyelids that will result in improvement in eyelid texture, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, vascular pooling, fatty prolapse and tissue luminosity. The theory behind this dark circle treatment is that by mildly insufflating the lower eyelids with carbon dioxide, blood flow to the area is increased and oxygenation improved leading to improvements in the skin texture and colour. The results appear to be accumulative with each treatment and permanent and touch ups can be done 3 to 6 months later to maintain results.
Fractional CO2 laser is a specialized dark circles treatment used to eliminate fine lines on lower eyelids and brown spots, boosting collagen production, removing old skin cells and lightening the skin around the eyes. Clinical investigations have proven that laser skin resurfacing can lighten dark skin tones, resulting in the reduction of affected areas and lines.
IPL is one of the best dark circles treatment, targeting the purple and blue areas, caused by visible blood vessels. It uses light energy to make vessels less visible, therefore reducing the appearance of dark circles.
Such problems caused by hyperpigmentation are mostly treated using TCA or fruit acid peels, effectively reducing the pigment and boosting the collagen production.
Meso treatment can effectively reduce marks under the eyes and bags under the eyes in few treatments.
Topical eye creams*
The creams are working well in combination with any of the above treatments. The creams contain skin lightening or bleaching agents, which are effective especially for the affected areas caused by pigmentation disorders or sun damage.
