Getting rid of your under eye circles.
The other contributor to the darkness of your lower eyelids and the "dots" as you called them is hyperpigmentation (too much pigment). In your circumstance, because of your darker skin tone, this can't be addressed with a standard laser that would otherwise be used to remove dark pigment. If this was attempted, you would end up with hypopigmentation of this area (too little pigment), thus your skin tones your eyelid to your cheek would not match. The best option for you is to undergo treatments with a PicoSure laser. In cases such as yours. 2-3 treatments and your hyperpigmentation would be resolved without the risk of hypopigmentation. This treatment is also performed in the office utilizing a topical anesthetic. You can expect mild redness of the treated areas for approximately 6-12 hours following the laser treatment. The results typically last years.
Combine the injections with the laser treatments and you'd have a homerun.
Locate a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist with experience in these types of procedures and set up a consultation. Best of luck!
