Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

What are dark circles under eyes or eye bags?

Having dark circles under your eyes often makes you look tired and stressed. The area under your eyes may look hollow and sunken, while the pigmentation of your skin will appear shadowy and dark when you have this condition. It can leave you looking fatigued, unhealthy or older than you actually are.

What causes dark circles under the eyes?

The causes of under-eye pigmentation are varied and often complex. However, although stress and lack of sleep can contribute to periorbital dark circles, genes play a major role. Dark circles under the eyes are caused by blood vessels appearing more prominently than in other areas of the face. This, as well as pitting (due to a loss of collagen as we age) can create a tired and aged look.

But dark circles may not actually be dark circles at all. The loss of supportive collagen and elastin in the under-eye area, and the presence of puffy eyelids can make this zone look sunken and depressed, causing shadows to form as well as hollows under the eyes.

Our ‘Dark Circles Under Eyes’ Treatments

Thankfully, a range of dark circle eye treatments exist to minimise dark circle symptoms while restoring volume and structure to dark, hollow under-eye areas. We can discuss the most suitable one for your needs at your initial consultation with us.

As an award-winning clinic, we are specialists in tear trough treatments and fillers for dark circles, as well as RF technology, lasers and Ultherapy to reduce dark eye bags and stimulate collagen renewal in the under-eye area.

How to remove dark circles under eyes

Removing dark circles, puffy eyes and dark eye bags is a constant cosmetic battle that many of us face. But there are a number of methods that we can apply to eliminate or reduce the appearance of dark circles effectively. Fatigue and a lack of sleep is often a key cause of hyper-pigmentation under the eyes, so getting at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night can greatly assist. Applying almond oil and vitamin E and K to the surrounding eye area at night can also reduce under-eye darkness and puffiness thanks to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. However, such treatments may not work in all cases, which is where clinically proven treatments like Thermage Eyes and laser treatment can help.

The best dark circle treatment

When recommending the best treatment option, it is important for us to assess the under-eye area closely during a consultation so that we can analyse the skin quality and put forward a suitable treatment that will work. There are many options to consider, so seeking an assessment from one of our medically qualified practitioners can ensure that the approach will give you the best results.

Dermal Fillers for Dark Circles

Dermal fillers can quickly and effectively reduce dark circles while restoring volume to sunken under eye areas. Our tear trough treatment uses dermal fillers to reduce dark eye circles for a soft, natural correction so that patients look rested and revitalised.

Thermage FLX for Dark Circles under Eyes

Thermage Eyes is a clinically proven skin tightening and uplifting treatment that rejuvenates the appearance of dark circles while tightening and lifting loose or hollow skin under the eyes. This procedure is performed with Thermage FLX, a 4th edition device that achieved tighter and more lifted skin after just one treatment. Thermage® Eyes uses an advanced RF technology to reduce wrinkles and the puffy skin over hooded eyes that can cause dark circle shadows. Pelleve skin tightening is another RF treatment that works in a similar way to refresh and reduce dark circles.

Ultherapy for Dark Eye Circles

Our award-winning Ultherapy skin tightening treatment targets the root causes of dark circles by lifting sagging or depressed skin under the eyes that causes them to look dark and shadowed. Ultherapy® stimulates the growth of new collagen to put structure and support back into the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark shadows in the process. The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is the No 1 Ultherapy Ultra Premier Treatment Provider for the UK and can help improve dark circles.

Dark circles under eyes treatment – creams and skincare

High-quality Cosmeceutical creams and refreshing chemical peels are also effective at reducing dark circles when used regularly. We offer treatments from premium quality brands like Obagi and Jan Marini that are known for their higher concentrations of active ingredients and skin-stimulating anti-oxidants.

Microneedling for Dark Circles

Microneedling can also tackle dark eye circles by stimulating the under eye area to reheal itself. Following the treatment, collagen levels will rebuild in the eye area to replenish lost volume and reduce sagging and hollowed-out skin.

Thermage® Eyes

The effects of age are usually most noticeable around the eyes where our skin is delicate and thin. As skin loses elasticity as we age, it droops and wrinkles to create eye bags and hooding that can make us look tired and older.

A whole variety of factors can affect the condition and appearance of our skin, apart from the natural ageing process. Stress, hormonal imbalance, sun exposure, tobacco and an unhealthy lifestyle can all play a role, resulting in wrinkles, a dull complexion and tired eyes.
