When people look you in the eye, it’s not just your pupils or irises they see. If you have bags and dark circles under your eyes, they’ll see those as well, just as you do when you look in the mirror. These issues around your eyes can be unsightly and make you feel and look older than you are. While temporary dark circles can be relieved by getting to bed earlier, de-stressing your schedule or shifting poor eating habits, some dark circles can’t be cured at home.
Fortunately, there are ways to address bags and dark circles which can improve your appearance and your self-esteem. These treatments are minimally invasive, safe, and extremely effective in resolving these issues.
Three ways you can treat bags and dark circles under your eyes include:
Dr. Mariano Busso’s unique Eyelid Rejuvenation treatment is customized to each patient’s individual needs, using a combination of approaches, including:
- 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 wonders to tighten the skin and decrease the annoying baggy appearance that can develop around our eyes.
Dark Circle Reduction
Chemical peels can be extremely effective at reducing dark circles around the eyes. Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, smoother skin which hasn’t been damaged by the sun, wind or other elements. One of the three main types of chemical peels Dr. Busso administers involves the use trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA peels can rejuvenate the skin below the eyes and reduce the prominence of the dark circles that appear under our eyes as we age.
There are many factors involved in the development of dark circles under the eyes, including the lack of sleep and poor diet. These two factors often meet each other in the form of vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 is crucial for metabolism, energy production, nerve function, cell division, brain function and the production of red blood cells in your bone marrow. An inadequate amount of B12, or an inability to effectively absorb it into the bloodstream from the gastrointestinal tract, can lead to anemia. Two common symptoms of anemia are pale skin and tiredness, both of which can accentuate dark under-eye circles.
To minimize the risk of vitamin B12 deficiency, eat foods rich in the compound, including meats, seafood, and leafy green vegetables. If the inability to efficiently absorb B12 is the issue, injections are available that bypass the gastrointestinal tract and deliver the vitamin directly.
