Dark circles under the eyes can make a person look tired and can also contribute to a tired or aged appearance. They are caused by various factors such as genetics, allergies, aging, and lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep and can be more noticeable in people with fair skin. While they are not necessarily a sign of poor health, many people may feel self-conscious about their appearance and seek treatments to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Treatment options to improve the appearance of under-eye dark circles include the following;
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy
- Dermal fillers
- Collagen stimulant injections
- Fat transfer
HOW DOES PRP THERAPY HELP IN THE REDUCTION OF DARK UNDER-EYE CIRCLES?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy improves the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by stimulating collagen production. This protein helps to keep the skin looking firm and youthful. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that involves injecting a concentrated solution of a person’s platelets into their skin.
PRP therapy is typically performed by a healthcare provider or dermatologist, who draws a small amount of the person’s blood and then gyrate in a centrifuge to separate the blood constituents. The concentrated solution of platelets is then injected into the under-eye skin using a fine needle that ultimately helps reduce the appearance of dark circles.
HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS HELP IN THE REDUCTION OF DARK UNDER-EYE CIRCLES?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin, and are used to add volume and reduce wrinkles and fine lines in the skin. Filler injections are also used to treat dark circles under the eyes, although they are not explicitly designed for this purpose.
Dermal fillers add volume to the tear trough area, which is the depression that runs from the corner of the eye to the cheek. When the tear trough area is hollow or sunken, it creates the appearance of dark circles or shadows under the eyes. Injecting a dermal filler into this area helps to fluff up the skin and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
HOW DO COLLAGEN STIMULANT INJECTIONS HELP IN THE REDUCTION OF UNDER-EYE DARK CIRCLES?
Collagen stimulant injections treat dark circles under the eyes by improving the skin’s texture and reducing the appearance of shadows or hollows in the tear-trough area. Collagen stimulant injections are injectable substances that are used to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
Several collagen stimulant injections are used for this purpose, including Sculptra and Radiesse. These injections are made from substances similar to naturally found chemicals in the body, such as calcium hydroxyapatite or poly-L-lactic acid. They are injected into the skin using a fine needle, and the procedure is usually quick and relatively painless.
WHAT IS THE FAT TRANSFER METHOD TO IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF DARK CIRCLES?
Fat transfer, fat grafting, or fat injection, is a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from one area of the body using liposuction and then injected into another area to add volume or improve the contour. Fat transfer is sometimes used to improve dark circles under the eyes by adding volume to the tear trough area, which is the depression that runs from the corner of the eye to the cheek.
Fat transfer is performed under local anesthesia, usually taking a few hours to complete. The surgeon will make a small incision where the fat is to be removed and then use a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to suction out the excess fat. The fat is processed and prepared for injection into the tear trough area. The procedure is usually relatively painless, and most people can return to normal activities within a few days.
