Dark circles are often a result of tear trough deformity. Changes in the skin thickness, laxity, hyperpigmentation or prominent subcutaneous venous pooling also contribute to the dark eye circle appearance.
Along with tear trough deformity, dark eye circles are a pet peeve with many individuals.
Treatment for dark eye circles usually addresses the three contributing factors, namely, tear trough deformity, hyperpigmentation and venous pooling.
Treatment modalities may include:
- Correction of tear trough deformity with fillers
- Non-ablative laser
- Fractional CO2 laser
- Topical eye creams and serums
