What Causes Dark Circles?

Dark circles under the eyes, also known as periorbital dark circles, are a common cosmetic concern for many individuals. These circles appear as dark, discolored patches or shadows beneath the eyes, often giving the impression of tiredness or fatigue. While they are typically harmless from a medical standpoint, they can affect one’s appearance and self-confidence.

Dark circles can vary in severity and may range from mild discoloration to prominent, deeply pigmented areas. They are more noticeable in individuals with fair or thin skin, as the underlying blood vessels and pigmentation become more apparent.

Other factors that can contribute to the development of under-eye shadows include:

  • Genetics

  • Allergies

  • Fatigue and lack of sleep

  • Ageing

  • Sun exposure

  • Dehydration

  • Nutritional Deficiencies

  • Smoking and Alcohol

  • Eye Strain

Dermal fillers for dark circles at Freyja Medical in Wrexham, Nantwich and Cheshire

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers offer a quick and effective solution for dark circles by restoring volume and smoothing the under-eye area.

Using hyaluronic acid-based fillers, shadows are reduced, creating a refreshed look with immediate results lasting several months.

This minimally invasive procedure requires little downtime, making it convenient for those seeking noticeable improvements in their under-eye appearance.

Microneedling for dark circles at Freyja Medical in Wrexham, Nantwich and Cheshire

Microneedling

Microneedling offers a promising solution for dark circles by stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture.

This minimally invasive procedure creates micro-injuries in the skin, prompting the body’s natural healing process and leading to firmer, thicker skin. It can also enhance the effectiveness of skincare products.

This treatment is generally well-tolerated and suitable for most skin types.

What causes dark circles?

Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by various factors, including genetics, lifestyle, and certain medical conditions. Common causes include:

  1. Genetics: Dark circles can be hereditary. If your parents have them, you’re more likely to develop them too.
  2. Allergies: Nasal congestion due to allergies can cause blood vessels to dilate and become more visible beneath the thin skin under the eyes, resulting in under-eye shadows.
  3. Fatigue and Lack of Sleep: Not getting enough sleep or poor sleep quality can lead to paler skin, making dark circles more noticeable. Additionally, fluid retention due to lack of sleep can cause puffiness, which can exacerbate the appearance of under-eye darkness.
  4. Ageing: As we age, the skin becomes thinner and loses collagen and fat, making blood vessels more visible. This can contribute to the appearance of dark circles.
  5. Sun Exposure: Overexposure to sunlight can increase melanin production in the skin, leading to hyperpigmentation under the eyes and the formation of dark circles.
  6. Dehydration: Not drinking enough water can cause the skin to become dull and dry, making under-eye shadows more prominent.
  7. Nutritional Deficiencies: Lack of essential nutrients, particularly iron and vitamin K, can contribute to the development of under-eye shadows.
  8. Smoking and Alcohol: Both smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can lead to dehydration and damage to the delicate skin under the eyes, making under-eye darkness more noticeable.
  9. Eye Strain: Spending long hours staring at screens or reading without breaks can strain the eyes and contribute to the appearance of under-eye darkness.

Addressing the underlying cause, such as improving sleep habits, staying hydrated, managing allergies, and protecting the skin from sun damage, can help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
