Whether you are old or young, dark circles are a very common problem and people around the world are looking for treatments to get rid of them .
If you are one of those people, here are a few dark circle treatments that will help you to get rid of them.
What Causes Dark Circles?
Sleeplessness and fatigue are the most common reasons for dark circles. However, there are some other uncommon reasons as well:
- Old age
- Sun exposure
- Eczema on face
- Excessive eye rubbing
- Allergic rhinitis (hay fever)
Home Remedies for Dark Circles
As the eyes are the most sensitive part of the body, many people prefer home remedies over medical treatment for reducing dark circles. Here are some popular home remedies for you:
- Take at least 8 hours of sleep every day.
- Place a chilled cucumber slice on your eyes for 15 minutes.
- Alleviate your head while sleeping.
- Apply a cold compress to constrict blood vessels.
- Place boiled and chilled tea bags on your eyes. You can black, green, or herbal tea bags.
- Gentle massage around the eyes will improve blood circulation and will help reduce dark circles. Use almond oil and vitamin E for the massage.
- Increase intake of potassium-rich foods.
- Use cold milk. Soak up two cotton balls in chilled milk and hold them under your eye.
Medical Treatment for Dark Circles
Already tried home remedies and there are no results??
Don’t worry!! Just like eczema on face treatment, dermatologists have come up with medical treatments for dark circles that do the job pretty well. Let’s look at them:
1. Laser Treatment
Laser treatment is one of the most popular dark circles treatments. It is a non-invasive method and has minimal recovery time. In fact, you can get back to your routine almost immediately with very few restrictions. In laser treatment, lasers target the darker skin under the eye and the heat helps to vaporize damaged cells.
2. Chemical Peel treatment
A chemical peel is another effective and popular method of dark circle treatment. A mixture of glycolic acid, lactic acid, and trichloroacetic acid is used to lighten the skin tone under the eye give a fresh and clean look. This method also tightens yours under eye skin.
3. Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are an effective dark circle treatment for people who are facing the issue due to loss of under-eye tissues or skin thinning. Your dermatologist or specialist will inject a hyaluronic acid gel under your eye to add volume. Hyaluronic acid is found in your body and helps keep your skin moisturized and tight.
4. Blepharoplasty (surgery)
Blepharoplasty is a surgical and invasive method for treating dark circles. This method is useful for treating dark circles caused by excess around the eyes or by extra skin around the eyes area. Only a plastic surgeon or dermatologist surgeon can perform this method. Moreover, as the area around the eyes is extremely delicate, you should consult your dermatologist and discuss all possible side effects before going for surgery.
