“Panda eyes” or dark eye circles are very common in the current times, which is usually linked to the busy and fast pace life that originated from the lack of sleep.
Dark eye circles are created by the shadow that is cast from swelling around the eyes, giving the appearance of the dark circles. It can also be caused by excessive smoking, alcohol, nasal congestion and excessive rubbing of the eyes. Amongst Asians, dark eye circles are caused by pigmentation irregularities mostly.
Excessive sun exposure also causes natural thinning of the skin and loss of collagen makes the blood vessels more visible under the eyes.
Dark eye circles don’t pose any sign of a serious medical condition rather than an aesthetic problem.
Dermal fillers, laser and our latest SUNEKOS® treatments can reduce the overall appearance of dark eye circles. Laser treatment addresses the issue of pigmentation, causing the dark eye circle while dermal fillers fill up the hollows on the eyes that create the darkened appearance and smoothen it out.
Aside from the above treatments, SUNEKOS® is a patented formula of Hyaluronic Acid and Amino Acids which stimulate your skin’s production of Collagen and Elastin, enabling Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) regeneration. This treatment is generally suited for skin with progressive signs of ageing, volume loss, and crepey skin.
During the SUNEKOS® treatment, fibroblast activity is stimulated in the ECM, which results in new collagen and elastin being produced. The skin becomes firm and strengthened, while the overall treated tissues are further hydrated. The SUNEKOS® treatment is also effective in lightening dark eye circles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The dark under eye circle treatment takes approximately less than half an hour (SUNEKOS®) or less an hour (dermal filler and laser) to complete, with no downtime. Patients are able to continue with their daily activity almost immediately after the treatment.
The treatment is non-invasive, and a numbing agent will be applied first before the injection of dermal fillers.
