Dark Circle Removal

Dark circles problem is very common in the Indian subcontinent and us as dermatologists face so many questions regarding them.

First of all, let’s see the causes;

  • Increase in pigmentation.
  • Acanthosis nigricans.
  • Because of the application of excessive kajal.
  • Wrinkles in these areas/prolapsed of various fat pads.
  • Thinning of skin and increase the visibility of veins and capillary network.
  • Loose and Redundant skin.

If the diagnosis is correct then we can target specific cause.

  • If there is an increase in pigmentation we can use various creams, chemical peeling and mesotherapy.
  • Acanthosis nigricans can be treated with retinal based creams.
  • Wrinkles can be treated with AHA/BHA creams/retinol based creams and HA fillers.
  • Aging leads to thinning of infraorbital skin making the veins and capillary network visible which can be treated with HA fillers.
  • Loose skin can be treated with blepharoplasty.
