Dark circles at 26
Thank you for asking about treatment of your dark circles. Your photos suggest there is some excess fat as well as darkening. For dark circles, I take a step by step approach,
- Two weeks of creams using hydroquinone and tretinoin 0.1%,
- a medium TCA peel and a very light phenol/croton oil peel later if needed.
- Dark circles + fat under the eyes usually needs a peel plus a lower lid blepharoplasty - blood flow in the fat may cause the darkening,Best wishes.
