Dark Under Eye Circles

The delicate skin below our eyes is thin and is not as well endowed with oil glands as the rest of the body and is a constant reminder of the speed at which we age.

The delicate skin below our eyes is thin and is not as well endowed with oil glands as the rest of the body and is a constant reminder of the speed at which we age.

This sensitive area requires very specific treatments that can powerfully re-model the elasticity and collagen strength of the skin by replacing the fat padding under the thin skin. Consequently as we age, the skin gets dry and wrinkled and the veins in the lower eye area appear more prominent. The padding over the orbital bone is reduced and the lower eyelid skin lies pressed on the orbital bone giving the appearance of dark circles. Other causes are lack of sleep, nasal congestion, chronic sinusitis, allergies, hormonal changes or certain drugs.

Previously there were no treatments for this shadowing under the eye apart from home products and eye creams that improved the condition minimally. Now with the advent of Carboxytherapy dark circle rejuvenation is possible. After 4 or 6 treatments of Carboxytherapy to the lower eyelids, there is marked improvement in eyelid texture, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, vascular pooling, fatty prolapse and tissue luminosity. The theory behind this treatment is that by mildly insufflating the lower eyelids with carbon dioxide, blood flow to the area is increased and oxygenation improved leading to improvements in the skin texture and colour. The results appear to be accumulative with each treatment and permanent and touch ups can be done 3 to 6 months later to maintain results.
