Do you have dark eye circles? Find out about our new dark eye circles treatment!

They say that eyes are windows to the soul, and perhaps that is why the whole eye area is such an important part of our face.

Our eyes are integral to not just how we see the world, but to how the world sees us. Over time, no matter what we do, we can develop dark circles, under-eye bags and overhanging eyelids. Even when we are feeling as fresh as a daisy, we can look a bit tired.

At REclinic we provide solutions for any concern, including muscle-relaxing injections to treat unwanted lines and wrinkles. We can also help you to improve skin texture and crepey skin under eyes with Plasma rich protein treatment (PRP). Very light hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be used for these delicate areas and disguise tear troughs.

Factors To Consider

Smoking – smoking causes skin to become dehydrated, and some doctors suggest that nicotine withdrawal during the night can disrupt sleep, which worsens dark circles under the eye

Alcohol consumption – alcohol is another vice that causes dehydration of the skin, making it more likely to become weak and sink, or sag. Sleep deprivation – when you don’t have enough sleep, blood vessels can dilate, creating or worsening dark circles under eyes

Loss of fatty tissue – as we age, fatty tissue in the upper cheeks breaks down, which can lead to protruding bulges under the eye if there is an uneven breakdown rate

Weakening of the orbital septum – the orbital septum is a thin membrane that holds fat under the eye; as we age it weakens and allows the fat behind it to sag or bulge and press against the skin under the eye, adding to or causing eye bags

Genetics – unfortunately genetics can play a big part in how noticeable eye bags are, but in most cases there is more than one reason behind this problem, and figuring out what worsens it can go a long way in helping to treat the issue. Poor diet – a high sodium diet can affect the delicate under eye area, as it can cause water retention beneath the eye, which can make bags more obvious.
