Dark Circles Under Eye Treatment

Dark circles are most common in adulthood and affect both men and women. We understand how you feel about the tired, unhealthy appearance of dark circles.

What Causes Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

Dark circles under the eyes are most commonly contributed to lack of sleep or poor quality of sleep. However, dark circles can be caused by many other conditions:

  • Genetics are the most common cause. If your parents or family have fair or thin skin under the eyes, it’s more likely you will experience the same issue, i.e when fragile capillaries under the eyes begin to stretch and leak.
  • Medical Conditions – Dark circles under eyes may be related to diseases, disorders and many other medical conditions including: allergies, liver diseases, asthma, eczema or anemia.
  • Injuries or Trauma – Dark circles under eyes can also arise from bruises, injuries, surgeries or trauma around the eyes.
  • Lifestyle and General Factors – In addition to insomnia or poor sleep quality, the following factors may also contribute to the discoloration of the skin around the eyes: fatigue, stress, alcohol, smoking, medication, aging and sun exposure, etc.
  • Age is another contributing factor. Over time, skin loses collagen and thins, so veins show through more prominently. Sunbathing speeds up this process by breaking down collagen and mottling skin color.
