Is topical collagen best for dark circles under the eye?

Thanks for your query. Dark circles are tricky to treat. Collagen hardly works for dark circles. There are multiple options available for it. Collagen injections or hyaluronic acid injections do work by filling the tear trough which helps in giving an effect of lighter under eye circles. Vitamin deficiency can be corrected by taking the supplements and topical application of skin lightening creams and regular chemical peels have proven to be effective for dark circles. Hope it helps.

Collagen and dark circles

Thanks for posting your question! I typically recommend a combination of dermal filler and laser for dark circles under the eyes. There are topical treatments, but these will show less results. Be well, Dr. M
