If you have noticed dark eye circles under your eyes, you may be wondering if they are a serious health problem. The answer is that they are not a health problem. However, the under-eye circles are believed to make you look older, tired or unhealthy. It is for this reason people search for the best solution to get rid of the dark circles. When you start your search, you will come across both natural and medically prescribed methods. Most treatments don’t offer permanent results. You have to commit to maintenance and consistency to banish the under-eye circles.
What causes the eye circles?
While in most cases, the dark circles under the eyes are caused by fatigue, there are other causes. They include:
- Hay fever
- Sun exposure
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Contact dermatitis
- Rubbing or scratching eyes
If the dark circles are caused by the natural aging process, your best way forward will be to use medically prescribed treatments. Aging causes the circles because the skin loses fat and collagen. This causes the skin to be thin, which can cause reddish-blue blood vessels to be more prominent under the eyes. Consequently, as people age, they develop puffy eyelids. Others get hollows under the eyes. For this, the best treatment is injectables.
Best Treatment for Under Eye Circles
There are many approaches when it comes to getting rid of eye bags. Home treatments have been found to shrink the lower lids temporarily when the lower eyelids are swollen from fluid pooling. There are also over-the-counter products available for treating this condition. However, if you need lasting results, here are the best treatments you should consider.
1. Cosmetic injectable treatments
Injectables remain to be the best treatment for under-eye circles. The treatment involves the placement of a filler material where the under-eye area and the cheek meet. This helps create a smooth transition, thus causing the circles to fade. The injections are done by a professional injector and under a local anesthetic. The results last between 6 to 12 months.
There are many different brands of filler materials used in fillers, they are all very similar.
This is a hyaluronic acid that is used to treat wrinkles and also circles under the eyes. The filler works by adding volume as well as hydration to the skin. The results produced are natural and smooth.
Injectables are also considered because they block certain chemical signals from the nerves. The signals that are blocked are mostly the ones that cause muscles to contract. This working gives lasting results when combating wrinkles and circles under the eyes in Etobicoke.
2. Skin tightening treatments
Eye circles form because the skin becomes loose due to the loss of collagen. If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to treat the circles, you will be spoilt for choice regarding skin tightening options. Top on the list is Morpheus8 skin tightening. The treatment uses needling that incorporates radio frequency. The use of needling and radiofrequency helps stimulate the production of collagen. This helps the skin to tighten and fades the circles on the face. You will need at least 3 treatments for the Morpheus8 treatment to be completed.
The second option is Forma skin tightening. This is a procedure that is used to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of sagging skin. As a result, it is effective in treating circles under the eyes. The procedure is both relaxing and non-invasive. It uses radiofrequency and heat to stimulate collagen production. It is a favorite when it comes to tightening facial contours. It has no downtime; thus the best treatment when getting ready for a wedding, birthday or a night out.
3. Microneedling treatment
The third option for getting rid of eye circles is microneedling. This is a procedure that boosts the natural collagen levels in the skin leading to firmer and youthful-looking skin. The procedure involves the making of tiny controlled damages to the skin. The tiny damages trigger the production of collagen, which in turn, makes the circles under the eyes fade. Unlike other injectables, micro-needling doesn’t give instant results. The procedure is, however, safer and more effective in eliminating circles under the eyes.
