Dark Circles Under Eyes

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, aged look.

Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

In fact, dark circles may not actually be dark circles at all but shadows cast by puffy eyelids or hollows under the eyes.

We offer a range of eye treatments and will discuss the most suitable one for your needs at your initial consultation.

Dr Tracy Mountford’s highly specialist tear trough treatment uses dermal fillers to reduce dark eye bags for a soft, natural correction so that patients look rested and revitalised.

Other effective treatments include RF technology with Thermage® Eyes to reduce wrinkles and the skin over hooded eyes, while focused ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy® stimulates the growth of new collagen to put structure back into the skin. To find out more, take a look at one of our blogs where we give you some important tips to help you get rid of dark circles and sunken eyes.

The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is the No 1 Ultherapy Ultra Premier Treatment Provider for the UK and Ireland. You can find us in London and Buckinghamshire.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a popular option at our clinic for smoothing fine lines and tell-tale wrinkles. We aim for a natural, soft airbrushed look that gives you a refreshed appearance that everyone will notice but only you will know why.

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.
