What Causes Dark Circles?

Woman after treating dark under-eye circles in Manhattan A lack of sleep is the common cause of occasional dark circles. However, there are several factors that are responsible for the continuous appearance of dark circles, including:

  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age-related volume loss
  • Thin skin in the undereye area
  • Smoking

The treatment method will vary depending on the cause of your dark circles. An individual who has hyperpigmentation-related dark circles will likely need a different treatment than someone whose concerns are the result of age. A personalized consultation with our experienced dermatologists is key to determining the right method for improving your under-eye circles.

 

Injectable Fillers

The appearance of dark circles can often be treated by adding volume using injectable fillers. Adding volume to this area can improve the look of shadows as well as under-eye hollowing in the tear trough. Fillers can also lift the surface of the skin away from the underlying blood vessels that can contribute to the appearance of discoloration. Our dermatologist may recommend one of the following fillers:

PicoSure Laser Treatment

The PicoSure laser can reduce the appearance of dark circles and make your skin appear more youthful. Some under-eye circles are caused by an overproduction of the pigment melanin. The PicoSure laser uses gentle pressure waves to reduce the appearance of melanin without affecting the surrounding tissue. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for skin elasticity and suppleness.

Madonna Lift Fractional Laser Treatment

The eyelift treatment known as the Madonna Lift uses fractional laser resurfacing to improve dark circles. Fractional lasers work by removing microscopic sections of old skin fibers so that your body can create newer, healthier tissue. This treatment also stimulates the production of collagen which can make the area smoother and firmer.

The Madonna Lift can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns in the eye area including wrinkles and loose skin. Dr. Bruce Katz, the director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center, pioneered the use of fractional laser resurfacing near the eye area.
