Different dermatologist recommends different dark circle treatments. However, a few of which common treatments are:
Topical creams: Dermatologist prescribe certain topical creams or appointments which contains ingredients like retinol, hydroquinone, kojic acid, vitamin C and caffeine. These options reduce pigmentation, improve skin tone, and increase collagen production and blood circulation.
Chemical Peels: A dermatologist performs a treatment to improve the appearance of dark circles. The chemical peel process involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which helps exfoliate the top skin layers and enhances the growth of new, healthier, fresh skin. It helps in reducing pigmentation and improves the texture of the skin.
Laser Therapy: Laser treatment is an effective way to treat dark circles by targeting the underlying cause. Dermatologist uses lasers which emit specific wavelengths, which eventually helps to stimulate collagen production, reduce pigmentation and tighten the skin. It perfectly reduces the appearance of dark circles.
Derma Fillers: In some cases, dark circles may be caused by the loss of fat and volume in the under-eye area. Dermatologists can inject dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers, to restore volume and reduce the appearance of dark circles. The fillers help to plump up the area, making the skin appear smoother and more youthful.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: This therapy involves the extraction of the patient’s blood, separating the platelet-rich plasma and lastly, inject it back into the under-eye area. There are growth factors available in plasma which stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture.
Lifestyle modifications: Dermatologists may also recommend certain lifestyle changes to manage dark circles. These may include getting enough sleep, managing stress, avoiding excessive sun exposure, using sunscreen, maintaining a healthy diet, staying hydrated, and avoiding smoking and alcohol, as these factors can contribute to dark circles.
The effectiveness of the dark circle treatments varies with factors such as underlying causes and the individual’s hormonal balance. It’s better to consult with a good dermatologist before applying any cream to evaluate your situation and recommend quick and effective treatment options.
