When you are tired or ill, it is common to have dark circles under the eyes. This is usually due to dehydration that makes the skin thinner, showing the dark blood vessels under the eyes. As you get older, the skin and tissue under the eyes can lose volume, creating permanent dark circles that make you look perpetually tired. At HMS Plastic Surgery, we offer non-surgical treatment for dark circles under eyes at our center in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami, FL, area.
Two of the biggest contributors to ongoing dark circles under the eyes are thin skin and deep tear troughs. As you get older, the collagen and elastin in the skin dissipate, resulting in thinner skin that loses its elasticity. The tear troughs, the crescent grooves that start at the inner corners of the eyes, become deeper as fat and tissue under the eyes are lost. Both these issues can be addressed with the use of dermal filler injections.
Eye Bags Treatment
Along with dark circles, eye bags are another undereye problem that occurs with age. Puffy bags under the eyes can occur when you are tired, but when you have permanent bags, it is often due to loose or excess skin. The fatty tissue and skin can sag under the eyes, creating the puffy bags. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can permanently remove eye bags, but there are non-surgical eye bags treatments, including facial filler injections.
With the right dermal filler, both eye bags and dark circles under the eye can be diminished. Since the skin under the eyes is very thin, it is important to use a thinner dermal filler formula, usually one comprised of small particle hyaluronic acid. Other treatments can include skin tightening or collagen induction options that can improve the youthfulness of the skin under the eyes.
If dark circles or eye bags are making you look exhausted or older, consider cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the under eye area.
