Dark under-eye circles are often hereditary and can be exacerbated by stress or allergies. One of our favorite ways to treat this often hard-to-treat area is Restylane. Restylane is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid which binds to the water in the tissue under our skin, resulting in that well-rested appearance we are all looking for. Here at LM Medical, we use a delicate approach to minimize bruising and hopefully leave you walking out of our office feeling like you turned back the clock. In addition we recommend making sure you are turning off electronics before bed and getting enough sleep. Not drinking enough water or drinking too much alcohol also can also contribute to dark under-eye circles and puffiness. Finally, be gentle with the skin around your eyes– never rub, only gently pat on products– hopefully you are using sunscreen and a retinol!
