Eyes are the windows to the soul; or so I have heard. But when those eyes appear overly tired with discolouration of the skin beneath them, even though you feel as fresh as a cucumber, it is not an impressive sight. Dark eye circles are common in both men and women.
The most natural thing to do about these dark circles is to want to eradicate them, but for this to work; you have to find the root cause of their existence first. There are a number of culprits that cause these circles to appear, the most notorious being:
Genetics: If you have dark circles underneath your eyes, one of the reasons for this might be because one of your parents or both have them. This happens when a hollow grove forms right below your lower eyelid as a result of fatty tissue loss.
Environmental exposure:Exposing yourself to environmental hazards most likely leads to allergies, triggering the inflammation of blood vessels.
Aging: As your skin ages, the collagen and elastin becomes weak and thins out leading to the visibility of veins, hence the dark circles.
Other causes of dark circles include:
- Poor lifestyle choices
- Sun damage leading to hyperpigmentation
- Lack of sleep
- Medical conditions
- Dietary deficiencies
- Extreme eye rubbing
- Chronic fatigue
After identifying the root cause of the pigment issues that are triggering dark circles under your eyes, then it is time to take care of this problem. There are a number of treatments that can minimise or eliminate the dark circles, in addition to using a concealer or skin lighting cream. These include:
IPL or Pulse Laser Treatment:This treatment that works with the help of Laser in Dubai destroys the melanin (responsible for skin pigmentation) leaving the skin smooth and clear. For you to get rid of the entire discolouration under your eyes, you will need at least 4 sessions of this IPL.
Laser skin resurfacing: You can use this treatment to get rid of dark circles under the eyes by stimulating the growth of new and healthy skin through collagen regeneration. This as a result minimizes the dark discolouration.
Hyaluronic acid: This acid has a way of fading dark spots from the skin. So by applying it on the dark circles under your eyes, you might change the pigmentation back to what it was.
Skin tightening: If the discolouration beneath your eyes is brought about by loose skin, then tightening the skin around that area can do wonders and promote better circulation of blood instead of pooling.
Blepharoplasty: In addition to correcting droopy eyelids, blepharoplasty in Dubai also tightens the skin under the eyes and as a result leaving little room for blood pooling hence correcting the pigmentation in that area.
Mesotherapy: By reducing excessive fat deposits, Mesotherapy in Dubai lightens the skin pigmentation. But in order for you to see results, you will have to undergo a number of sessions for instance five to seven.
