The classic rock band the Eagles once sang: “You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes.” They could have just as easily (though less poetically) sang: “You can’t hide your tired eyes.” That’s because the bags, dark circles, or droopy eyelids that many of us develop as we age and as we don’t get as much sleep as we should – are there for all to see when others look in your eyes.
There are many reasons these eye-adjacent imperfections develop, from lack of sleep to heredity, allergies, or poor diet. The skin around our eyes is some of the thinnest in the body, so any problems under the surface are likely to be visible above. When you don’t get enough quality sleep, the blood vessels and capillaries under your eyes tend to dilate, creating a dark tint. This may also cause the skin under your eyes to appear puffy, as fluids can leak out into the skin.
The good news is that there is plenty you can do to shake the tired off of your eyes and improve your appearance and self-confidence. At Dr. Mariano Busso’s acclaimed Miami-Coconut Grove aesthetic dermatology clinic, we offer multiple treatments specifically designed to address bags, dark circles, and drooping eyelids. All of these fixes are safe and minimally invasive and work quickly to bring youthful vibrancy back to your face.
Dr. Mariano Busso’s unique Eyelid Rejuvenation treatment is customized to each patient’s individual needs using a tailored combination of therapies. After a thorough evaluation, we will select the optimal treatment regime, which can include:
- Botox for a natural looking eyebrow lift
- Dermal filler
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to reduce volume loss in adjacent areas
- ThermiRF for skin tightening
- Fractional laser resurfacing to improve skin texture and color
These treatments can do a fantastic job of tightening the skin and decreasing the annoying baggy appearance that can develop around the eyes.
Chemical peels are an excellent way to reduce dark circles around the eyes. These treatments remove damaged outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, smoother skin that hasn’t suffered from the detrimental effects of the sun, wind, or other elements. One of the three main types of chemical peels Dr. Busso uses is trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA peels can rejuvenate the skin below the eyes and reduce the prominence and visibility of dark circles.
In addition to the treatments we offer, there are plenty of home remedies, including changes in habits, lifestyle, and diet, that can help with these imperfections, though they may not ultimately get you the results that come with professional treatments.
