How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles

We did say “what, if any, treatments…” to rid you of the dark circles around your eyes. The simple truth is that sometimes dark circles cannot be treated – there’s a truth bomb! However, some can, and simple lifestyle changes, products, and treatments by Skin City will help reduce and clear under eye dark circles.


As with many things in life, prevention is better than cure. Whether you’re at a higher risk of sun damage and pigmentation or not all dermatologists, including our on Dr. Niteen Dhepe, recommend using an SPF every day.


The fact is you cannot change your genes. While you can try lightening products and exfoliating treatments generally dark circles, as a result of your genetics, can only be treated and not cured. Some clever makeup application can work wonders, whether you are concerned with dark circles or puffy under-eye bags there is a world of advice out there.


We have already mentioned the importance of wearing an SPF every day – even in the winter – and how it’s an excellent part of your preventative skincare toolkit. However, there are other skincare products that can help with dark circles including eye creams. When gently applied to the eye area eye creams can actively promote collagen and boost elasticity to strengthen skin which helps treat dark circles that are related to aging. For tired eyes products with caffeine, such as green tea, are helpful as they can awaken tired eyes. A word of caution; unless the cream or serum is specifically designed for the eye, avoid the area completely.


Dark eye circles can be hard to treat and it is always a good idea to maintain realistic expectations of the results you can achieve. However, that doesn’t mean that there are no treatments available. Dark circle treatment at Skin City not only addresses dark circles but skin pigmentation; exfoliation treatments, such as Medical Microdermabrasion, can treat thick and dull skin. Laser treatments can also reduce the pigmentation in the under-eye area as well as helps with tightening of the skin. If you are experiencing permanent swollen or puffy under eyes you may also want to consider an eye bag removal procedure.
