THE CAUSES OF DARK CIRCLES…

Ageing changes around the eyes make an individual look unhealthy or tired or sleep deprived even though they may be perfectly alright. Dark circles are one of the most common complaints that patients present with at a skin clinic.

There are many factors that contribute to dark circles and ageing signs around the eyes. For e.g., thin skin and compromised blood flow make the undereye area prone to ageing faster and thus in most people this is the first area to show signs of ageing.

Environmental factors also contribute to the quality of skin. Lack of sleep, poor diet, long screen time also contribute to the formation of dark circles. Loss of elasticity leads to bags or puffiness under
the eyes.

There are many treatment options available today for the skin around the eyes ranging from non-surgical to surgical. One might have to use a combination of treatments depending on the concern.

The hollowing under the eyes is usually a genetic feature but can be exaggerated by ageing and loss of volume. The hollowing can also be increased by other factors including the environment, dietary intake and can even be familial. The hollowness can lead to shadows under the eye, making you appear sleep deprived or unwell. Women use concealers to hide their dark circles. Though the concealer is a good way to hide the pigmentary changes, the hollowness cannot be hidden.
