Laser Treatment For Dark Circles Under Eyes
Many people sadly suffer from dark circles under the eyes. They are constantly being asked the question of whether they got enough sleep, or if they watch TV. However, in most cases neither of these are the real reason for the dark circles, and quite often they are difficult to get rid of. There are a number of treatments out there for removing dark circles under the eyes, laser treatment for dark circles under eyes is probably one of the most popular of them.
The idea of laser treatment is to get rid of the underlying cause of your dark circles, and there are a number of these. Laser treatment cannot work on all of these, although they are worth knowing about. Talk to your GP if you are worried about dark circles:
- Thin Eyelid Skin: The colour of the muscle behind the skin is purple, and if you have a thin eyelid skin then it will show through, therefore creating those unsightly dark circles.
- Visible Blood Vessels: These are another common cause of dark circles underneath the eyes.
- Pigmentation of the skin.
- Hollow Eye: This is where there is not enough fat surrounding the eyeball, which in turn creates an effect known as ‘hollow eye’
- Eyelid Aging: This of course happens with age, our skin loses elasticity, this often creates the ‘puffy eye’ appearance. It is by far one of the most common reasons for dark circles under the eyes.
- Arcus Marginalis Deformity: An inherited condition.
Now that you know what the various types of dark circles under the eyes are, we can look at the different laser treatment for dark circles under eyes.
Different Laser Treatment For Dark Circles Under Eyes
If you have a pigment or blood vessels under the skin then you will want to look at a treatment
known as Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL. This treatment isn’t laser treatment as such, instead it is a full powered light, although it does do pretty much the same job. This treatment consists of a flash of light which targets the pigments or blood vessels. This helps lighten up the skin which has caused by either of these.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment is the second type of treatment. This stimulates collagen production in the skin, and hopefully that will thicken thin eyelid skin. It is also useful for removing pigments in the eyelid. Many people also use this for wrinkle removal.
There is one final treatment which isn’t strictly a ‘laser’ treatment but does involve lasers. This type of treatment will involve a laser cutting a small incision on the inside of the eyelid. Fat is placed into the arcus marginalis which will hopefully relieve the depression of the eyelid. This is the only such treatment which will get rid of dark circles which are ‘hereditory’.
If you really want to look great, then laser treatment for dark circles under eyes is probably one of the best things that you can do. Consult with a cosmetic surgeon for more information on this procedure.
