The main causes for dark eye circles are genetics and skin tone. The under-eye area can look purple or bluish because the skin there is so thin and translucent that you can easily see the underlying veins. It can be more apparent in people with fair skin, and those with very little subcutaneous fat supporting the area under the lower lid. Lack of sleep increases venous congestion; fluid build-up leads to pooled blood in those superficial blood vessels, making dark circles look even darker when you’re tired.
Some people—especially those with darker skin tones—produce extra pigment around the eye area, which can cause a general darkening of the skin under the eyes and on the lids.
Dermal fillers injections can plump up the sunken under-eye area, to make it less visible. There are also laser procedures to destroy the superficial blood vessels that are showing through the skin, Contact us now to book a no obligation consultation to find the best treatment for your dark eye circles problem at Dr Valentin Low Aesthetic & Laser Clinic.
