Under Eye Dark Circle

Dark circles, which are sometimes accompanied by bags, might make you look older than you are. While exhaustion may appear to be the most reasonable reason for this condition, dark circles beneath the eyes can be caused by a variety of circumstances. 

There are several treatments for dark circles. You need to visit a skin specialist to know your cause and suitable treatment options. 

Everything you should know about Under Eye Dark Circle

Men and women both have dark rings under their lower eyelids. Dark circles, which are sometimes accompanied by bags, might make you look older than you are. To make matters worse, getting rid of them might be tough.

Even though dark circles can affect anybody, they are particularly frequent in those who:

Are senior citizens

Have a hereditary propensity to this disease (periorbital hyperpigmentation)

Ethnic groups that aren’t white (darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation around the eye area)

While exhaustion may appear to be the most reasonable reason for this condition, dark circles beneath the eyes can be caused by a variety of circumstances. They usually aren't a reason for concern and don’t necessitate medical care.

The costs vary depending on the things you want to use. In India, most under-eye creams range in price from Rs. 200 to Rs. 1500. This is dependent on the brands you use. Eye gels and face masks are the same way. Facial oils range in price from Rs. 900 to Rs. 2000. When it comes to brands, they are available in both drug stores and high-end varieties.

For under-eye dark circles, acugel or hydrafacial therapy has also been employed. This therapy enhances blood flow and lowers edoema, which causes puffiness beneath the eyes. Depending on the depth of the skin affected, 6-8 treatments are usually necessary. Each session, however, is just approximately 20-30 minutes long.

The benefits can be lasting if you apply the cosmetics regularly and follow the instructions on the labels. Irregular use might result in consequences that are neither lasting nor consistent. If you just conceal your dark circles using concealer, the effect will only last as long as the product is on your face.

In this scenario, a setting spray or setting powder can be used to ensure that the product is not washed away by perspiration, allowing the results to last as long as feasible. The best method to guarantee that the benefits are long-lasting is to ensure that you are getting enough sleep and are not under too much stress.


As with any product, there are some potential adverse effects to be aware of. Cosmetics that aren’t right for your skin might have negative side effects. If you already have oily skin, for example, you should avoid using facial oils since they might cause even more oiliness, acne, and plugged pores. In the same way, certain cosmetic components might irritate your skin, especially if you are sensitive to them.


Here are some facts regarding dark circles beneath the eyes to help you refute these myths and decide what form of therapy is best for you. 

  • Dark circles beneath the eyes can be treated with home treatments and medications 

Although home treatments and lotions can be used to conceal dark circles, they only give a temporary solution.

  • Lasers are a good approach to get rid of dark circles beneath your eyes

While lasers may be used to successfully thermally treat numerous skin diseases and remove layers of skin, they do not address the underlying volume loss underneath the skin, which is what causes dark circles behind the eyes in the majority of instances.

  • Excess salt in my diet will help me get rid of my dark circles

A salty diet can increase fluid retention and may make circles around the eyes look worse, but it will not address the fundamental reason for the look under the eyes, which is foundation loss underneath the skin.

Urban clinics unique approach to treat Under Eye Dark Circles

  • Hyperpigmentation

Professional skin bleaching or brighteners may be used as part of the treatment. Hydroquinones are effective for a limited length of time; however, if a daily skin brightener is required, the doctor will offer alternative non-hydroquinone skin brighteners.

  • Thin Skin

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Patients with thin skin who also suffer volume loss or extra fat pockets may benefit from a combination of therapies. Because of the thin skin, the underlying blood vessels around the fat pockets might become transparent, ‘darkening' the skin. In such circumstances, a doctor may propose a mix of procedures, such as injectable fillers combined with a chemical peel to enhance hollowing, or blepharoplasty surgery combined with a chemical peel to eliminate extra fat pockets. Chemical peels can help tighten and increase collagen development on the lower lids.


Treatments with therapies and lasers

Here is a list of treatments with therapies and lasers:

  • CO2 or Erbium Laser 

To tighten the skin, Erbium or CO2 laser treatments are employed. By activating collagen and making the skin firmer and less thin, may also help to reduce dark circles. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, laser resurfacing is a surgery that employs a laser to enhance the look of skin or correct minor facial defects by removing layers of skin.

  • Fractioned Resurfacing Laser 

The fractionated resurfacing laser works by delivering a succession of small, closely spaced laser spots to the skin while leaving healthy skin intact in between. Fine wrinkles around the eyes, as well as uneven coloration and dark spots produced by age and sun exposure, can all be reduced with this therapy.

Topical medications

Although applying an eye cream won’t completely eliminate dark circles, a select number do, mostly by employing high-tech chemicals to constrict blood vessels (which generate dark shadows), disperse light, and brighten pigmented regions for a visible improvement in look.

  • Resist Anti-Aging Eye Gel by Paula’s Choice

Try an eye gel if eye creams hurt your eyes and make you tear up. Thanks to a mix rich in hyaluronic acid and peptides, this one feels light but packs a powerful hydrating punch. It has a metallic tip that feels particularly cold and relaxing when you hit it.

  • Premium Total Eye Cream by Pure Biology 

With almost 3,000 five-star ratings, this is by far the most popular eye cream on Amazon. Caffeine is an old-school substance that acts to constrict blood vessels and lessen the look of dark eye circles for a short time.

Oral medications

Some medical procedures to lessen the look of dark circles are available for a more effective and long-term remedy. The following are some of the most frequent methods:

  • To diminish pigmentation, chemical peels are used.
  • Resurfacing and tightening of the skin via laser surgery.
  • Medical tattoos are used to infuse pigment into regions of weakening skin.
  • Tissue fillers are used to hide blood vessels and melanin that cause skin discoloration around the eyes.
  • Excess fat and skin are removed, revealing a smoother and more equal surface.
  • Fat or synthetic implants can be surgically implanted.

Discuss your alternatives with a doctor before deciding on any cosmetic operation. Invasive medical procedures may be costly, uncomfortable, and take a long time to recover from.
