Dark circles or bags under the eyes can indicate lack of sleep or illness, but this is not always the case. Aging and other factors can create dark shadows and bags under the eyes, making you look older and tired. There are solutions to make your eyes and face look more energetic. As part of our non-surgical treatment options at Uptown Body Contouring, we offer treatment for dark circles under the eyes at our medical clinic in Manhattan.
Dark circles can be caused by various factors, many related to aging. The lower eyelid skin is very thin, but it becomes even thinner with age. The thin skin allows the blood vessels under the eyes to be visible, causing dark circles. Another contributing factor to dark circles is loss of volume in the tear troughs. These hollows can make the eyes look very tired 24/7.
A quick treatment for dark circles under the eyes is filler injections. Adding volume under the skin and in the tear troughs can eliminate dark shadows and visible blood vessels. The treatment can be performed in less than a half hour and rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes.
Eliminate Eye Bags
With aging, the thin skin and fatty tissue under the eyes can sag. Plus, the upper cheeks can lose volume, creating a noticeable bulge under the eyes, also known as eye bags. Blepharoplasty, or a lower eyelid lift, can remove excess skin and tissue, but not everyone is ready for plastic surgery. Another option is using facial fillers to smooth the transition between the under eye area and upper cheek. This can eliminate the appearance of eye bags for a refreshed eye appearance. Skin tightening treatments can also help minimize eye bags and improve the under eye area.
If you have dark circles, eye bags or both, there are treatments that can help you look more youthful and alert. Uptown Body Contouring offers a wide assortment of non-surgical eye treatments to rejuvenate under the eyes.
