Top Medical Ways to Remove Dark Circles
Dark circles are an irritating issue when you’re trying to feel and look your best, as they can make you look slightly older and tired, decreasing confidence and your ability to make good first impressions.
There are several ways to address this problem on a temporary level, ranging from household products like concealers and retinoid creams, to homespun remedies like elevating the head while you sleep.
These may work for a time, but if dark circles continue to be a persistent problem for you, you may want to address them medically and attempt to remove dark circles permanently.
Here are some methods that are available for those seeking such procedures.
Preliminary Measures: Lifestyle Change
Before moving on to more serious medical procedures, you should have a check in with yourself either alone or with your physician. You can ask about whether some lifestyle changes are in order to address these persistent issues.
Some behaviors that can negatively impact your health and make you feel and appear tired include:
- Drinking too much
- Lack of sleep
Is one or more of these a problem for you? See if you can take steps to address them. After all, you may find that your dark circle problem disappears, without the need for taking further medical measures.
Non-surgical dermal fillers are one method for addressing dark circles. In this type of procedure, your physician will apply dermal fillers of various types of synthetic materials into the areas of your face affected by dark circles.
Once applied, the fillers take effect almost immediately. And the effects are relatively long lasting, depending on a variety of factors.
Another advantage of dermal fillers is that they have basically no recovery period under normal circumstances. This mean you can walk out of the doctor’s office without worrying that you will need to plan for a recovery period.
There are a number of dermal fillers available in terms of materials, so let your physician know if they think a particular one would be right for you.
Laser technology is becoming more sophisticated in the realm of plastic surgery. And more people are seeking out laser treatments for a variety of issues.
One thing that has made laser treatment so popular is the fact that it’s non-invasive, which means that you don’t have to prepare yourself for invasive surgery, which can be very stressful and harsh on your body.
Laser technology is becoming one of the prized methods for removing dark circles from under your eyes. By targeting these areas with gently pulsing lasers, you can ease away your dark circles gently and effectively.
You may end up preferring or needing multiple sessions with laser treatment. So be sure to consult with your physician about what their recommended amount is.
Once your laser session is complete, you should be feeling relatively normal, without the need for an extended recovery period. That being said, there is a possibility you will experience some mild side effects. These can include redness, itchiness, or swelling around the area where you receive the treatment.
Some who receive laser treatment also like to block off a couple of days for low-scheduled recovery, just in case there is some sensitivity to the procedure.
Dietary and Natural Possibilities
Another set of solutions that can possibly affect your skin and the presence of dark circles is the presence of certain vitamins and minerals in your diet.
Vitamin C, generally thought of as one of the most necessary elements of human nutrition, has been shown to increase and enhance collagen production, which has in turn been shown to reduce the factors that contribute to skin discoloration.
Vitamin K has also shown promise as an agent that can help to reduce the presence of dark circles, as well as eliminate unwanted wrinkles in the sides of the eyes.
Another folk wisdom method includes applying slices of cucumbers to the area around the eyes. Why this is effective is in some ways still unknown to science, but there is some evidence that it’s effective for helping to speed up the flow of blood in the areas surrounding the eyes, giving the skin a freshened and more youthful appearance.
