Solutions for Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

If you’re tired of seeing dark circles under your eyes — even when you’ve had a full night of rest — you’re not alone. Many people struggle with this unattractive feature, which can make you look older and less appealing. 

Under-eye concealers can help mask dark under-eye circles, but they can’t cover the skin changes that often accompany this cosmetic issue. At Desired Beauty Surgical & Medical Center, with offices in Bakersfield, California, and Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, board-certified surgeon Dr. Farzin Kerendian and our team of beauty experts offer the best solutions available for treating these stubborn dark circles. 

Take a moment to better understand dark under-eye circles and how we can help them disappear.

Why do I have dark circles under my eyes?

People develop dark circles under their eyes for many reasons. Two of the most common include lack of sleep and genetics. 

Not getting enough quality sleep — especially as a habit — triggers dark circles and swelling around your eyes. If genetics are to blame, the circles could appear darker due to your bone structure, collagen levels, or the amount of melanin, or pigment, in your skin.   

Other reasons people develop dark under-eye circles include:

Dark circles are also more common in people with darker skin, most likely because of pigmentation differences, and in older people as the skin naturally thins with age. 

Can you help me say goodbye to under-eye circles?

Dr. Kerendian and the team offer different solutions to under-eye circles based on the cause and severity of the condition. During your initial consultation, we examine your skin and review your medical history. Dr. Kerendia also discusses your goals and any lifestyle factors that may impact treatment. 

With this information in hand, the Desired Beauty Surgical & Medical Center team customizes a personalized treatment plan to target your dark circles. Your plan may include one or more of the following solutions to reduce your under-eye circles:

While these treatments offer good results, our team also offers personalized lifestyle recommendations to ensure your dark under-eye circles stay away longer. This may include sleep strategies, like elevating your head to reduce fluid in the lower eyelids, using cold compresses to constrict blood vessels, and using the best products possible to protect your skin from damage from the sun and other environmental factors.
