1. Is laser suitable for dark circles removal?
Laser therapy is used for the removal of dark circles in combination with vitamin peels and other fillers. Laser treatment is generally safe and helps in providing an even texture to the skin.
2. What are the different methods for the removal of a dark circle?
Most dermatologists recommend using eye creams enriched with vitamin K, arginine and hydrating substances to rejuvenate pigmented skin. Hyaluronic acid may be injected to reshape sunken skin below the eyes. Platelet rich plasma therapy can also be used as it helps regain the elasticity of the skin. Radio frequency may be used to promote collagen growth in middle aged and older patients.
3. Are there any medicines to get rid of dark circles?
Normally skin creams and peels are used to minimise the appearance of dark circles. These creams mainly contain vitamins, skin brightening agents and firming agents.
4. How effective are the treatments for a dark circle?
Treatments to get rid of dark circles may not show permanent effects. However, laser therapy and chemical peels or creams can greatly reduce their appearance and make the skin below the eyes look brighter and firmer. A regular face massage can help promote blood flow to the region below the eyes which could make them look less dull.
5. Will I get dark circles again after discontinuing my treatment?
Dark circle formation depends upon a number of factors. Depending on the treatment, dark circles may or may not reappear. Laser and radio frequency treatment effects last longer as compared to most skin peels and creams.
