Dark eye circles
What are dark eye circles?
Dark eye circles are when the skin beneath both eyes become darkened, giving the appearance of “panda eyes”. Dark eye circles are a problem for many people. Due to a variety of lifestyle and genetic factors, some people have a much higher chance of developing dark eye circles. Dark eye circles might make someone look tired, disinterested or unmotivated, a huge no-no in the professional scene.
What causes dark eye circles?
Lack of sleep, as well as staring at television or computer screens, can affect circulation which makes dark circles more evident. As we age, our skin also thins, becoming more translucent and letting underlying blood vessels show through, resulting in a purplish appearance.
Dark circles can be caused by many things such as:
- Lack of sleep and fatigue
- Frequent eye rubbing
- Eyestrain (from computer or television screens)
- Medical conditions like allergies, eczema, thyroid problems and anaemia
- Alcohol consumption
- Skin pigmentation irregularities
What are the types of dark eye circles?
There are a few different types of dark eye circles, such as:
This appears as a brown hue under the eye.
This appears as a blue or pink or purple hue under the eye with or without puffiness.
This has a shadow hue and lower eye bags and grooves, plus loss of fat with a bony appearance.
- Mixed type
This is a combination of 2 or 3 of the above.
Current acne treatment options include:
In recent times, laser therapy have become increasingly popular in the treatment of active acne. Not only do lasers show promising results, they are also non invasive procedures with minimal downtime. While there needs to be more research on the best laser for acne, a current favourite among doctors and patients is the PicoSure Laser. The pico laser comes with multiple wavelengths and lenses to treat across different stages and types of acne, be it inflammation or acne scarring. With that said, results from lasers vary between patients and some may require more treatment sessions than others.
Do be careful when you’re exploring your options, and always get a professional diagnosis before undergoing any treatment.
Many “miracle” products and services are scams in disguise, but a certified doctor or dermatologist will be able to give you real results.
