If you are one of the countless people who have under-eye bags that no amount of sleep can resolve, they may be caused by one of the following issues:

  • Anemia
  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Dehydration
  • Health conditions such as dermatitis

Treatments For Dark Circles

If you feel that dark circles under your eyes are affecting your facial appearance, various treatments can be applied to create a refreshed, youthful look, with the darkened area far less visible. The treatments offered at Skin Matrx include:

  • Chemical peels: A custom chemical peel will trigger natural collagen growth for thicker, more supple skin, which can reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.
  • IPL photofacial: A treatment with “intense pulsed light” can do wonders to resolve the appearance of undereye bags that are the result of the overdevelopment of skin pigment (melanin). This treatment can also reduce the appearance of spider veins visible beneath the eye structure.
  • Dermal fillers: Volume loss in the “tear troughs” beneath the eyes are a common reason for dark circles under the eyes. The precise injection of a dermal filler can restore lost under-eye volume for a smoother, more youthful look. Fillers typically last about six months before retreatment is needed.
