Many factors can cause dark circles around the eyes which can be related to the natural aging process, lifestyle, or certain medical conditions. Some common causes of dark circles include:

  • Heredity.
  • Disappeared or fallen fat beneath the eyes.
  • Loss of collagen.
  • Thinning and sagginess of skin below the eyes.

  • Exposure to the sun.
  • Lack of sleep.

Dark Circles Treatment Options

Many options are available for dark circles under eyes treatment. Some effective ones include:

  • Topical eye creams: Topical creams containing skin lightening or bleaching agents are an effective method to reduce dark circles around the eyes. Topical creams are effective for the dark circles caused by pigmentation disorders or sun damage.
  • Chemical peels: This treatment works best for dark circles caused by hyperpigmentation. Peels remove dark circles by reducing pigment and boosting collagen production. Mostly, TCA and glycolic acid chemical peels are used for the treatment of dark circles.
  • Dermal fillers: Injectable fillers reduce the appearance of dark circles caused by thinning of skin or fat loss. Hyaluronic acid fillers are generally used for treating dark circles. Dermal fillers are an effective treatment option, but their results are temporary and need to be repeated.
  • IPL treatment: IPL therapy is beneficial for purple and blue dark circles caused by visible blood vessels. It uses light energy to make vessels less visible, which reduces the appearance of dark circles.
  • Laser treatment: This is another effective treatment for dark circles. Laser energy reduces the appearance of dark circles by tightening the sagging skin and promoting collagen production, which improves the tone and texture of the skin beneath the eyes. Laser treatment for dark circles in Dubai also resurfaces the skin, which helps eliminate fine lines and brown spots on lower eyelids. Various kinds of lasers are available but fractional CO2 is mostly used for reducing dark circles around the eyes.
  • Mesotherapy treatment: Mesotherapy treatment can effectively reduce dark circles and bags under the eyes. Its multiple sessions can give amazing results.


The procedure depends on the selection of the technique that you are going to get. Our doctors will brief you about the procedure before starting it. The procedure will be performed in an outpatient setting, and you can get back to your routine work right after the procedure. However, taking some rest and avoiding heavy activities can help you recover fast.
