What causes dark circles and dark shadows under your eyes?
Dark circles under the eyes are often the result of fatigue. This can be having too much sleep or too little.
When we don’t get enough hours of sleep, our skin starts to become dull and lifeless. The tissue under our eyes starts to become dark and blood vessels under the skin become visible.
Not enough sleep can also lead to a build-up of fluid under the eyes which creates a puffy appearance. Dark circles can also form because of puffy eyelids casting a shadow over your under-eye area.
Besides fatigue, dark circles and tired eyes may be caused by the following:
- Ageing – causing our skin to become thinner and blood vessels to show.
- Allergic reactions – the release of histamines during an allergic reaction leads to itchy
eyes, redness and puffy eyes.
- Excessive sun exposure – causing the body to produce too much melanin.
- Genetics – if dark circles and dark eye bags run in your family.
- Dehydration – not drinking enough water can make your under eyes look dull and
What are the best dark circle treatments in London?
At Skin Perfection, we have several treatments that can help reduce dark circles, eye bags and tired-looking eyes.
Dermal filler treatment
Dermal fillers or tear trough fillers (under the eyes) contain an injectable gel consisting of hyaluronic acid. As we age, we begin to lose levels of hyaluronic acid which makes our skin become dry, saggy and less flexible.
Tear-trough dermal fillers help to plump and add volume to the under-eye area. They also add an instant boost of hydration which helps to brighten the skin.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can also stimulate the production of new collagen in your skin. This helps to improve skin quality and thickness over time.
Our microneedling treatment uses the Dermapen technology to help freshen up your under-eye area. It works by using tiny needles to create micro channels in the skin. Doing this triggers the skin’s natural healing process.
Microneedling also causes new collagen to form, which helps to renew and rejuvenate your skin. On top of improving your skin health, microneedling is also used to increase blood flow to repair damaged skin and keep it looking healthy.
Microneedling treatments have little to no downtime and are suitable for all skin types including darker skin tones.
Wrinkle relaxing injections
Wrinkle relaxing injections help with relaxing facial muscles that are constantly contracting. for example, when we smile, laugh or frown.
The use of botulinum toxin injections relaxes muscle contractions by blocking chemical signals from your nerves to your facial muscles. This helps to smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful look.
Which dark circle treatment is right for me?
During your consultation with one of our practitioners, we will discuss with you which treatment will help you get the best results. They will also do a free skin health check, which will help us to address all of your skin concerns.
They may recommend combining dark circle treatments to help you see even more benefits from your treatment session.
