Under Eye Darkness

Many people have a genetic predisposition to under-eye darkness. Even with enough sleep, the darkened areas remain, marring the natural beauty of the face. Typically, these dark areas must be covered with makeup, but even the best cosmetics can fail to fully hide the darkened area. As we age, the skin becomes thinner and more delicate, and for some, dark, unsightly areas appear under the eyes. Finally, modern technology has advanced to the point in which this condition can be resolved without surgery or other invasive procedures.

Modern Treatment for Under Eye Darkness

In the past, there was little that could be done to permanently improve the look of dark circles, and people had to resort to makeup or invasive surgery. This is no longer the case. You may be a good candidate for the most advanced treatment, if you are living with the following:

  • You always look tired, even when well-rested
  • No amount of sleep or vacation time fully gets rid of unsightly dark circles
  • You feel that the under-eye darkness makes you look old and tired
  • You feel that the dark circles are impacting your personal or business life in a negative way
  • People often ask you if you are tired
  • You need to cover up dark circles with concealer every day

Tired Eyes: Genetics?

If your parents had dark circles, you are in the unlucky position of being very likely to develop them too. Even young people in their twenties can have dark, unsightly areas under their eyes, particularly those with a tanned skin tone. Added to the genetic factor is that as we age, the skin beneath the eyes gets thinner, making the problem worse, as blood vessels can begin to appear. Exposure to the sun’s UV rays damages the skin, weakening it, and making the dark circles even more prominent.

These vessels have gotten larger than they should, creating a blue or brown patch under the eyes.

This treatment can take years off your appearance – leaving your face looking dramatically better.
