The pigmented regions of skin behind your eyes are known as dark eye circles. These are distinct from eyebags, which are bulging bags under the eyes. However, dark eye circles and eyebags often coexist.
Although dark eye circles may not signal a medical condition, they can make you seem exhausted and much older than you are. It might also be tough to remove dark eye circles. Fortunately, there are a lot of dark eye circles removal options that are available in Singapore.
What Are the Causes of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?
Dark circles beneath your eyes are due to more than just sleep deprivation. Dark circles form when blood accumulates under the thin skin behind the eyes and blood vessels constrict owing to inflammation. This results in a blue, brownish, or reddish color.
The following are the reasons for dark circles:
Skin That Is Thin
When you have thin skin, the color from the blood vessels under the skin and the bone structure is more visible, giving birth to the pigmented skin that we refer to as dark eye circles.
Thinner skin may also be a result of aging.
Oxygen flow and blood circulation to your skin are interrupted if you don’t get enough sleep. This causes your skin to fade, making your dark eye circles more visible.
If you don’t get enough sleep on a daily basis, your skin might age quicker and grow thinner over time, resulting in dark eye circles.
Bags Under The Eyes
When you develop eye bags, the swelling pulls the blood vessels nearer to the skin’s surface, causing discoloration, particularly since the skin around your eyes is normally much thinner.
Eye bags also throw a shadow on the underside, adding to the illusion of dark undereye circles.
Because of the loss of collagen beneath your eyes, the region appears hollow and blood vessels might be more evident.
This may be caused by aging or smoking, since smoking can prematurely age the skin.
Exposure to the Sun
With greater sun exposure, your skin generates more melanin, which may cause pigmentation around your eyes.
Capillaries That Have Burst
When capillaries break under the skin, blood pours out and colors the skin. This is comparable to how bruises occur when your blood’s hemoglobin deteriorates to a blue-black color.
When eczema heals, the skin may darken owing to pigment deposition, a condition known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
The skin around your eyes might be deflated as a result of fat loss. Blood vessels will be nearer to the skin’s surface, giving rise to the impression of dark eye circles.
HIFU Treatment Options
Dark eye circles may be exacerbated by droopy brows and drooping skin. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU, stimulates collagen and elastin formation in your skin by using ultrasound energy.
Picosecond Laser Fractional
The Fractional Pico Laser therapy penetrates the skin with fractionated pulses of pico laser, causing micro-damages in the targerted region. These micro-damages activate the body’s natural healing mechanism, stimulating collagen and elastin to repair fine wrinkles.
A setting on the Pico laser is dedicated to pigmentation removal therapy. Pico Lasers may help brighten pigmentation around the eyes, making dark undereye circles less visible.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic fillers are utilized to provide volume to regions that require it, like the tear trough. It is among the most effective dark circle elimination treatments in Singapore.
One of the major reasons of dark eye circles is volume loss. Bones and fat surrounding the eyes lose volume with time, resulting in a ‘tear trough’ deformity around your lower eyelids.
Hyaluronic fillers are utilized to provide volume to regions that require it. This creates a more youthful appearance and decreases the look of dark eye circles.
Rejuran I is a specialized dark eye circles removal option made of PDRN and DNA. This injectable solution encourages collagen formation to repair fine lines, hollowing beneath the eyes, and volume loss for total under-eye rejuvenation.
