What causes under eye darks circles, pigmentation and know the best treatment options - by Dr Sravani Sandhya , Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag.

Dark circles under the lower eyelids are common in men and women. Often accompanied by bags, dark circles can make you appear older than you are.While there are many causes including genes, stress, oversleeping and sleep deprivation, let us take a look at other factors that can lead to them.



Melanin: If you have not heard about melanin, you must have known about pigmentation. This happens when there is extra absorption of melanin under our eye which results in pigmentation. Consulting a dermatologist would be a quick relief. Usually, he would recommend dark circles under eyes cream as per your condition.

Sleep Deprivation: Oversleeping, extreme fatigue, or just staying up a few hours past your normal bedtime can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. Sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show.

Fluid Retention: Sometimes, because of fluid retention, our skin around the eyes dome up. This causes puffiness and dark circles are a result of the shadows from the puffiness of eyes. There could be numerous reasons for puffiness such as allergies, high salt consumption, stress etc.

Age: Natural aging is another common cause of those dark circles beneath your eyes. As you get older, your skin becomes thinner. You also lose the fat and collagen needed to maintain your skin’s elasticity.

Thinner Skin: Did you know that the skin type differs from person to person? Those with thinner skin around the eyes are more susceptible to dark circles. Thankfully, we have treatment procedures to remove dark circle under eyes.

Dehydration:
Dehydration is a common cause of dark circles under your eyes. When your body is not receiving the proper amount of water, the skin beneath your eyes begins to look dull and your eyes look sunken.Drink lot of water to hydrate your skin .

Skin Sagging:
Individuals who reach a certain age start facing problem of sagging skin. However, premature aging of skin is also predominant among people who are in constant contact with sun. Overexposure to the sun can cause your body to produce an excess of melanin, the pigment that provides your skin with color. Too much sun particularly for your eyes can cause pigmentation in the surrounding skin to darken.Using sunscreen can help avoid this problem.

Genetics: Family history also plays a part in developing dark circles under your eyes. It can be an inherited trait seen early in childhood, and may worsen as you age or slowly disappear.

Iron Deficiency: Because of deficiency of iron, the blood that reaches the eyes lack proper amount of oxygen and the insufficient level of oxygen to the eye tissue cause them to look darker.

Treatment Options for Dark Circles & Pigmentation.


For a more effective and permanent solution, some medical treatments are available to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Some of the more common methods include:
  • chemical peels to reduce pigmentation
  • laser procedures to resurface the skin and enhance skin tightening
  • tissue fillers to conceal blood vessels and melanin that are causing skin discolouration under your eyes.
  • medical tattoos to inject pigment into thinning skin areas
  • fat removal to remove excess fat and skin, revealing a smoother and more even surface
Before deciding on any cosmetic procedure, discuss your options with our doctor and based on your condition we can prescribe the right treatment options.

1.) Keep yourself hydrated
First and foremost, drink a lot of water — eight glasses or more each day. You can also down some green tea for a boost of healthy antioxidants, Foods that contain mostly water can be just as hydrating for your skin as drinking H2O. Eat water-dense fruits and veggies such as watermelon, plums, peaches, cucumbers, bell peppers, and lettuce more often.

2.) Avoid too much direct sun exposure
Do not expose yourself for long hours to direct sun heat, as the direct sun heat for long hours causes ageing spots and wrinkles. Before going in to direct sun light, use a good sunscreen.
