Chemical peels and dark circles

Thank you for your question. We see great results with chemical peels to help with the dark circles around eyes. One treatment may not be enough and we would recommend home care such as ZO Medical Hydrafirm which is an eye cream designed for the delicate eye area to help minimize the dark circles under the eyes and also helps support the skins elasticity, helps with under eye puffiness and fine lines as well.

It is best to consult with your provider before being treated so they can evaluate you and guide you in the right direction. If the area is depressed it may be a dermal filler you may need to put the volume back in to the depressed area which can be giving the illusion of dark circles.




Pigmentation under the eyes/dark circles

The best way to treat this type of pigmentation is with a combination of peels, creams, lasers, or fillers for the tear trough area such as Belotero.  Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic advice.  Best, Dr. Green

Chemical Peel off for Dark circles (Pigmentation)

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate, treat it gently. The eye area also has very little subcutaneous fat tissue, and what’s there, diminishes with time. This is one reason this area (particularly under the eyes) can develop a sunken, hollow look as we age. The skin continues to get thinner and more translucent as we get older (why the small reddish-blue blood vessels under the skin can peek through, creating dark undereye circles).

Fillers like Restylane®, Juvederm® and hyaluronic acid fillers, are used to add natural volume back to the sunken areas under the eyes. If your dark circles are due to aging, lasers can also help stimulate the growth of skin-firming tissues like collagen and elastin. I highly recommend having a consultation with a board-certified doctor and getting an understanding of the best treatment options for you. Each patient is different and an honest doctor will be able to let you know what they can or cannot do for you.

Hi Megha,
Undereye dark circles need not be just hyperpigmentation. there might also be a component of volume loss creating what is called as the "tear trough deformity". it is best that yourself assessed by a good cosmetic surgeon/ cosmetologist who is competent enough to handle both problems.
best of luck
