Dark circles under the eyes - causes and treatment
Where do dark circles under the eyes come from?
Dark circles under the eyes are a common problem in patients.
They can be caused by many reasons: including airborne or contact allergy, melasma, endocrine disorders (thyroid diseases), dark complexion, fatigue, stress, dehydration, sleep disorders, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, but often the bruising under the eyes is determined genetically.
Women with deep-set eyes are more prone to dark circles under the eyes and this problem can occur naturally even from early years.
Often times the dark circles under the eyes result from specific anatomy of the eye area: the skin of the eyelid is the thinnest skin in the entire human body. It has no sebaceous glands, practically no fatty lining, and directly adheres to the circular muscle of the eye, covering the bone. Thin and delicate eyelid skin ages quickly, for this reason blood vessels begin to show through it giving the effect of tired and dark circles around the eyes. Another cause of the appearance of hollows under the eyes is the increased loss of fatty tissue around the eyes with age and atrophy of the orbital bone.
Another cause of the appearance of dark circles is the deposition of dark pigment in the skin of the eyelids.
We always choose a specific therapy method depending on the root cause of the problem. Most often, treatment procedures are aimed at stimulating the skin by increasing collagen production, thickening the skin and brightening it.
To enjoy a longer effect of the treatment performed, it is important to use appropriate home care dedicated to the eyelid skin.
