What Treatments Are Available

Laser & IPL

Skin Lightening Peels

Professional skin lightening creams which contain bleaching properties may be recommended where the dark circles are caused by melasma and sun damage (eg. hydroquinone, kojic acid, Vitamins C and K, green tea, and licorice). Over the counter creams do not contain sufficient 'active ingredients' to have any significant effect or improvement to the skin.

Skin Resurfacing For Under Eye Dark Circles:

Skin resurfacing through skin peels may be the ideal solution to reduce dark circles. This can have the effect of increasing the production of collagen, thereby reducing pigmentation.

Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Facial Filler Treatments For Dark Circles:

Temporary injectable fillers (9-12 months) containing hyaluronic acid can be used for dark circles which are created due to thinning eye skin or fat and tissue loss in the under eyes or upper cheeks.
