Dark circles under the eye are unsightly and make the face look older. If you have dark circles under your eyes, you’re not alone. It’s a very common problem, caused by a wide variety of different conditions. Before recommending treatment, you need to establish what condition you are truly suffering from.
Dark Eyelid Color – Every human being’s lower lid is darker than the surrounding facial skin. The skin under the eye is so thin you can see through it to the muscle underneath, giving the area a purple/blue appearance. This is a normal condition and cannot be treated with a laser, cream, or surgery. The best solution to improve the color of the area is to use a concealer like Dermablend or Covermark.
Puffy Lower Eyelids – As we age, some begin to develop “bags under the eyes.” Younger skin is taut, and prevents fat from protruding in the area. With aging and increasing laxity of the skin, fat pushes forward and protrudes under the eye. A shadow falls in the groove underneath the bags, making the person look older and more tired.
Hollow Eyes – Hollow Eye Syndrome happens when aging causes fatty tissue loss under the eye. A hollow groove is formed, called the naso-jugal groove. Shadows fall into the groove, causing the appearance of dark circles under the eye.
Dr. Assassa employs a unique, safe, non-invasive method for eliminating hollow eye syndrome and bags under the eyes. Using an injectable filler called RESTYLANE®, he evens out the plane beneath the eye, filling in the depression between the cheek and the eyelid. This eliminates the shadow that creates the dark appearance and improves the appearance of protruding lids.
Over time, RESTYLANE® stimulates the body’s natural collagen production in the areas where it is injected. The results last one year or more and patients typically return with depressions much shallower than when they started.
