Dark circles under the eyes, also known as eye bags, can result from various factors, including genetics, aging, lifestyle habits, and certain medical conditions. While they are often harmless, they can affect one’s appearance and confidence. At Eyelid Center of Utah, Dr. Kian Eftekhari offers personalized treatment options to address dark circles and rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes.

Causes of Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by a combination of factors, including:

  • Genetics: Some individuals are predisposed to developing dark circles due to their genetic makeup.
  • Aging: As we age, the skin around the eyes becomes thinner and loses elasticity, making blood vessels more visible.
  • Fatigue: Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality can cause the skin to appear dull and contribute to the formation of dark circles.
  • Allergies: Seasonal allergies or allergic reactions can lead to inflammation and swelling around the eyes, resulting in dark circles.
  • Sun Exposure: Excessive sun exposure can accelerate skin aging and cause pigmentation changes, including dark circles.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and a poor diet can contribute to the development of dark circles.
  • Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders and dehydration, can manifest as dark circles under the eyes.

Treatment Options

Dr. Kian Eftekhari offers a range of treatment options to address dark circles and improve the appearance of the under-eye area:

  • Topical Treatments: Prescription-strength creams and serums containing ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid can help improve skin texture and reduce pigmentation.
  • Injectable Fillers: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers, can be strategically injected to fill hollow areas and smooth out the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves extracting and injecting the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma into the under-eye area to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels can help exfoliate the skin and improve pigmentation irregularities, leading to a brighter and more even-toned complexion.
  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing, can target pigmentation issues and stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes.
  • Surgical Options: In severe cases of under-eye bags caused by excess skin or fat, surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) may be recommended to remove or reposition tissue and achieve a more youthful appearance.
