Dark Circles Treatment in Dubai

Dark circles may not be a sign of a medical problem, but they sure alter the way you look. They contribute to a tired-looking appearance and may cause low self-esteem.

Fortunately, various dark circle treatments are available that can lighten that shaded look around your eyes and help you win back your confidence.

What Causes Dark Circles?

Dark circles occur for various reasons. The most common ones include:

  • Aging: The natural aging process can cause the skin under your eyes to loosen, making underlying blood vessels more visible. This can darken the under-eye region.
  • Genetics: If your parents or siblings have dark circles under the eyes, chances are you will develop those as well.
  • Fatigue: Not having enough sleep or eye strain can cause blood vessels to become more visible in the lower eyelids, potentially causing dark circles.
  • Dehydration: Insufficient water intake can cause the under-eye area to become dull and darkened.
  • Dermatitis: Contact dermatitis and eczema can cause blood vessels to dilate and become visible in the under-eye region, darkening its skin.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Certain factors, e.g., excess sun exposure or hormonal changes, can trigger extra production of melanin—the pigment that gives our skin its natural tone. This process can cause prominent dark circles under the eyes.
  • Lifestyle factors and choices: Stress, alcohol use, caffeine consumption, and smoking are also among the potential causes of dark under-eye circles.

Treatment Options For Dark Circles

Dark circle treatments in Dubai range from topical solutions to injectables and laser treatment to surgery. The most common treatment options include the following:

Topical Creams:

These creams typically contain ingredients with an anti-aging effect, such as hyaluronic acid, retinol, caffeine, peptides, and vitamin C. When applied topically to the under-eye region, they may help reduce the appearance of dark circles.

Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels can treat dark circles caused by hyperpigmentation. They work to remove the top skin layer and invoke cell turnover, promoting a lighter-toned, more rejuvenated under-eye skin appearance.

Dermal fillers:

Dark circles caused by indented shadows can be treated with dermal fillers. When injected, these fillers quickly add volume to the under-eye areas, reducing the shadowy half-moon shape.


Mesotherapy treatment usually involves injecting a mix of hyaluronic acid, plant extracts, and antioxidants into the upper and lower eyelids using very fine needles. The aim is to improve circulation at the tissue level in order to reduce aging signs and dark circles.

Laser Treatment:

During Laser treatment procedure, a dermatologist directs a concentrated light beam at the under-eye region to target excess melanin and dilated, visible vessels. The resultant exfoliating effect promotes cell turnover and collagen stimulation, which can improve pigmentation around the eyes.


Blepharoplasty is a minor surgery to reduce the appearance of dark circles caused by baggy eyelids. This procedure typically involves removing excess skin and fat from the under-eye area. Sometimes, the surgeon may only reposition the fat to achieve the desired look. 


During this treatment, a practitioner injects a tiny amount of liquid carbon dioxide into the skin to improve circulation in the area. When performed under the eyes, it can lighten the skin and reduce puffiness, diminishing dark circles and under-eye bags.

PRP Injections:

These injections use growth factors to improve circulation and boost collagen production in the treated region. When administered to the under-eye skin, they may improve pigmentation and reduce the aging effect, making dark circles less visible.


The results of under-eye dark circle treatment depend on the option chosen. Some treatments offer immediate results, while others may take some time to come into effect. The longevity of those results may also vary among individuals.

Dark Circles Removal Cost in Dubai

The average starting cost of Dark Circles Treatment in Dubai is around AED 1000. The exact price may, however, vary from person to person, depending on multiple factors, such as the selected treatment option, the problem’s severity, and the practitioner’s expertise.
