Dark Circle Treatment

Dark circles under the eyes commonly affect many Americans and can make you look older than wrinkles or gray hair. While it may come as a surprise to find out that this condition will age you more than many other cosmetic issues commonly associated with getting older, you should take comfort in the fact that dark circles under the eyes are easily treated at our Denver Med Spa.

There are a variety of reasons why you may develop dark circles under your eyes. Stress, genetics and fatigue are common causes. Often they are a result of a chronic lack of sleep. Other common causes of dark circles include:

  • Iron or vitamin deficiency
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Illness
  • Smoking
  • Weight loss
  • Thinning skin and loss of collagen, allowing blood vessels under the eyes to be more visible
  • Allergies
  • Chronic alcohol use
  • Rubbing or scratching your eyes
  • Sun exposure
  • Fat loss, causing your eyes to have a sunken look

Depending on the cause of your dark circles, you may be able to get rid of them by making a few simple lifestyle changes. Getting more rest, eating a balanced diet, drinking more water, quitting smoking, and reducing alcohol consumption can often reduce the appearance of dark circles. However, in some cases these lifestyle changes may not be enough. In these situations, we can provide you with a variety of treatments to eliminate the circles under your eyes so that you look more youthful and refreshed.
