Tired of dark eye circles?
Here’s all you need to know about the causes of dark eye circles and the effective treatments to improve it.
It is not uncommon to feel self-conscious of your dark eye circles under your eyes. These pesky bags take away the freshness of the face and make you look older.
In many cases, dark eye circles removal is possible through a number of methods available here in Singapore, be it naturally or through non-surgical treatments.
Causes of Dark Eye Circles
Dark eye circles are caused by several factors.
Thin under eye skin can be more transparent, making the blood vessels more visible than usual. People who are anemic or pale can also have more transparent skin that may appear more brownish, blueish, or reddish.
Under eye circles can also be due to skin hyperpigmentation. This is usually caused by excess melanin around the eye area. Hyperpigmentation can be treated by a dermatologist even if it’s caused by your genes.
Sagging skin, puffiness, or edema can also make your eyes appear darker because of the shadows being cast.
Lastly, volume loss around the eyes can cause a ‘tear trough’ deformity.
This causes sunken and hollowing of your eyes which gives an appearance of dark eye circles.
For effective dark eye circles removal treatment in Singapore, it is best to consult a skilled and experienced doctor to ask for some advice. With numerous methods nowadays, you will need someone to help you identify which ones are best for you.
Getting rid of your dark under eye circles can make you look better rested, healthier, fresher, and years younger. Your under eye skin is a delicate, thin skin which is why it easily suffers from pigmentation and puffiness. While products, such as topical creams, may help reduce the appearance of dark eyes, medical treatments target deep into the problem areas for optimal results.
There are non-surgical dark eye circles removal treatments in Singapore that give the same results as surgical procedures, but minus the surgery. Here are non-invasive treatments that can effectively cure your dark eye circles and eye bags.
Dark eye circles under the eye are always accompanied by loose skin or fine lines around the area. These blemishes add to your tired look and enhance the appearance of dark eyes.
EndyMed is a medical-grade radio-frequency (RF) treatment. EndyMed has a specialised treatment handpiece called iFine that helps tighten and lift sagging skin around the eyes. This is possible by using radiofrequency energy, which is delivered deep into your skin. The production of new collagen is then stimulated, which gives the tightening and lifting effect. The results are natural and long-lasting – keeping those dark eye circles away from you for a long time.
Droopy brows and sagging skin can make your dark eye circles worse. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU, uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin.
We use Ultraformer 3 HIFU which has a specialised 2.0mm handpiece for more precise and safer treatment around the eye region
The Fractional Pico Laser treatment uses fractionated beams of pico laser pulses to reach deep into the skin and create micro-damages in the treated area. These micro-damages cause the body to turn on its natural healing process, leading to the stimulation of elastin and collagen to improve fine lines.
PicoPlus Pico laser has another setting that is specialised for pigmentation removal treatment. Pico Lasers help to lighten pigmentation around the eyes to improve the appearance of dark undereye circles.
Hyaluronic fillers are used to fill in the areas needing some extra volume such as the tear trough. It is one of the best dark eye circles removal treatments in Singapore.
Volume loss is one of the important causes of dark eye circles. Over time, fat and bones around the eye area lose its volume, which leads to ‘tear trough’ deformity at the lower eyelids. Hyaluronic fillers are used to fill in the areas needing some extra volume. This gives out a fresher look and reduces the appearance of dark eye circles.
Rejuran i is a specialised under-eye filler that consists of PDRN/ DNA. This injected filler stimulates collagen production to treat the fine lines, under-eye hollowing and volume loss for comprehensive under-eye rejuvenation.
What is the best treatment for dark circles under the eyes?
The best treatment for dark circles under the eyes are treatments that directly target areas deep within the skin. While not everyone is willing to go under the knife, non-invasive treatments are the go-to dark eye circles removal treatment in Singapore.
There is no surgery involved but it can give the same results a surgical procedure offers. Minimal downtime is only needed as patients can get back to their normal activities after treatment.
A combination of multiple types of treatments is also necessary to achieve good results for dark eye circles removal. This is because the reason for dark eye circles tends to be multifactorial. For example, the most common cause of dark eye circles in a person after the age of 50 is sagging skin and volume loss. Hence, a combination of HIFU or EndyMed as well as Hyaluronic Acid/ Rejuran i fillers are necessary to give natural and holistic results.
How To Reduce Dark Eye Circles – Natural Methods to Stay Away from Tired-Looking Eyes
Baggy, tired eyes always show up every time you lack sleep, had too many salts, and other hard-to-avoid causes. Luckily, there are natural ways to treat and reduce them.
Dark eye circles removal in Singapore is so in-demand that there are numerous methods being introduced. Some home remedies and lifestyle changes can help remedy those pesky circles. Here are some easy-to-do solutions to help reduce your dark circles, hydrate the skin around your eyes, and supply it with nourishment for a rejuvenating look.
Fix your sleeping habits
It is essential to track your sleep and make sure to get enough shut-eye every day. Sleep deprivation almost always leads to dark, puffy circles under the eyes and eye bags. The skin under the eyes is the thinnest, and one of the most sensitive areas on the body, fatigue quickly shows in that area.
Try sleeping on your back with a pillow behind your head for some elevation. The gravity reduces fluid build up around the eye area and helps the water move down toward the lymphatic drainage.
Eat the right foods
Certain food groups help reduce the appearance of dark circles and eye bags. Foods rich in iron will help supply the needed nutrients for people with anemia. Blood vessels easily show through light skin, which gives the appearance of dark eyes. Get your supply of iron from red meats, spinach, egg yolks, beans, and lentils.
Don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated. Since the under eye skin is thinner, the effects of dehydration could immediately show in this area. When the body is dehydrated, it tends to preserve water, and the eye sockets are a place where we hold extra fluid. Drinking plenty of water can keep your cells hydrated and dramatically reduce the excess bag of fluid under your eyes.
Cold compress, a bag of frozen peas, or a chilled spoon, are helpful tools to reduce eye puffiness, dark circles, and eye bags. Anything cold can do the trick and instantly calm inflammation and swelling. Try putting spoons in the refrigerator, pull them out in the morning, and place them over your eyes. Just be careful not too put too much pressure on the delicate eye area.
There are fruits and vegetables or anything you can find in your kitchen that can be used for a cold compress. Some of these are cucumbers, tomatoes, milk, green tea, and more. Most of them are rich in antioxidant properties which help strengthen skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. This natural compress also contains soothing effects that help soothe irritated eyes, which in turn helps lighten those dark circles.
