Dark circles can appear under the eyes when you are tired or did not get enough rest. Unfortunately, some people have chronic dark eye circles that are present, even when they feel energetic and have had enough sleep. Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by other issues besides rest, making you look older and tired. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC can offer dark eye circles treatment to help you look more youthful and energetic.

What Causes Dark Under-Eye Circles?

Fatigue is the most common cause of dark circles under the eyes. The lower eyelids become puffy and cast shadows under the eye. However, there are many other possible causes of dark eye circles that have little to do with sleep or rest. Genetics can play a factor, as some people have thinner skin under the eyes or are prone to eye puffiness. Other factors that can cause dark eye circles include:

  • Hay fever or allergies
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Aging – sagging lower eyelid skin or loss of volume
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Irritation from rubbing the eyes

If dark circles under the eyes are constant and a symptom of allergies or other conditions, treating the underlying condition may offer relief. For aging or genetic causes of dark eye circles, cosmetic treatment or surgery can be an option for removal.

At LM Medical NYC, we offer treatment of dark eye circles by our dermatologist. For dark eye circles, our board certified physicians can offer medical or cosmetic options, whichever is most appropriate. Cosmetic injections and other treatments can be beneficial for reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eye. For eye bags and dark circles caused by aging, blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, may be recommended through our facial plastic surgeon.
