Dark circles and tired looking eyes?
Make them look more alert and rejuvenated with the best dark circles treatment in Bangalore at DNA Skin Clinic.
Dark circles are one of the beauty bugbears that are most frequently talked about by people to their dermatologists or aestheticians. These can be the result of long-haul flights, sleepless nights, a stressful week with excessive eye-straining, an allergic response, a natural aging process, poor diet, sun exposure, or fatigue/extreme tiredness. Depending upon the skin color, the dark circles may appear purple or blue in fair-skinned individuals and dark-brown or black for darker skin tone. Most often eye puffiness also accompanies dark circles.
Dark circle is not a harmful skin condition or a medical concern rather it is considered an aesthetic skin issue. Some people think of hiding or treating it but it’s not possible that it gets eliminated.
Many people seek expert advice on how to lighten up the under-eye area permanently. Dr. Priyanka Reddy at DNA Skin Clinic offers the most advanced dark circle treatment in Bangalore for managing dark circles and help one achieve a more rejuvenated under-eye appearance.
Dark circles tend to appear more often in people with darker skin tones than light-complexioned individuals. This risk factor is attributed to changes in skin pigmentation.
Only an expert skin doctor can accurately identify the main reason behind the development of under-eye dark circles and help one choose the best-suited treatment option accordingly. Dermatologist suggested medical treatments include-
These might include hydr-oq-ui-none, tre-ti-noin, or both to help reduce hyperpigmentation under the skin. Hydroquinone must be used consistently at least for 3 months to see the desired effect. Other products that can treat dark circles include azelaic acid, kojic acid, and Vitamin C which can increase collagen production under the eyes and reduce blood stasis that can cause discoloration.
These include injectable substances like a hyaluronic acid gel (dermal filler) or Growth factor (P-R-P). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that has a water-retaining property. It can help plump the under-eye area and restore the skin volume by increasing hydration of the skin. The growth factor is an autologous blood component composed of natural growth factors and repair proteins that can accelerate the healing of the under-eye area by promoting collagen synthesis and improving blood flow in the treated area. Both of these fillers can help get rid of dark circles caused by loss of collagen and thinning of skin in the lower eyelid.
These include using strong acids which when applied on the skin surface or under the eye area can help lighten and tighten the skin. The peels work by exfoliating the skin i.e. removal of the dead skin cells from the affected skin, thereby revealing the new, healthy skin. Simultaneously, it can encourage collagen remodeling. For better results, this can be used in combination with other treatments.
The laser treatment makes use of concentrated light beams that generate heat and target the melanin of the skin. It can help gently exfoliate the skin and reduce the spread of fluid due to broken capillaries, thereby decreasing the darkness in the overall treatment site. Simultaneously, it can induce collagen synthesis and remodeling which treat skin laxity under the eyes and show a visible improvement of dark circles.
This treatment involves the puncturing of the skin in the under-eye area with tiny needles. It results in the creation of micro-injuries which prompt a natural healing response of the body to produce collagen and improve blood circulation in the area, thereby reducing dark circles.
The cost of dark circles treatment depends on several factors like the type of treatment opted, patient age, and experience of the doctor.
