Dark Circles

Dark circles normally appear under the eyes with age.

They are often hereditary and typically get worse with time. The dark circles are normally the result of pigmentation under the eye or thin skin under the eye leading to the visibility of the dark coloured underlying muscle fibres. There are also a few other, relatively rare, medical conditions that cause dark circles.

It can be difficult to treat dark circles. There are however some treatments that can lessen the appearance of dark circles, even if it is not possible to take the darkness away completely.

Non-surgical treatments for dark circles include:

Tear Trough Filler

Often dark circles under the eyes are associated with a deep hollow at the junction between the lower eyelid and cheek, known as the ‘tear trough’. This hollow region casts a shadow, which makes the darkness appear worse. Often reducing the hollow reduces the dark shadow, which in turn helps improve the appearance of dark circle.

Visit our Tear Trough Fillers / Non Surgical Eyelift page for procedure details & pricing.

Platelet Rich Plasma

This treatment involves drawing a blood sample from your own arm, processing it to extract plasma and growth factors and then re-injecting it to the face. This treatment has been purported to reduce the appearance of dark circles, as well as lead to a general rejuvenation of the skin.

We offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy as part of our ” Vampire Facelift” treatment. Visit that page for more details and pricing.

Surgical treatments for dark circles include:

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery can remove loose skin and fat from below the eye, which typically make darkness look worse. The overall impact of surgery on dark circles however tends to be modest.
