What are dark circles?
Do people continue to tell you that you look tired, or maybe you look in the mirror and find yourself looking older and tiresome? Well, the culprit is dark circles. Dark circles are one of the most common blemishes that both men and women get underneath their eyes. Although it is more present in adulthood, it is not unusual for younger people to also get them. It is usually referred to as having bags or puffiness underneath the eyes.
What causes dark circles?
In regards to dark circles, there are a number of factors that contribute to their appearances such as insomnia, stress, genetics, aging and your diet. Too much alcohol and especially foods that are high in sodium can cause water retention around your eyes. Although having dark circles is a common problem and it is not serious, it is still displeasing. It can put a damper on your confidence and make you appear unhealthy and always tired.
How can I treat dark circles?
There are a number of ways that you can solve your “raccoon eye problem.” The dissatisfaction of searching for a remedy for dark under-eye circles can now end with Mederem Esthetics & Laser. If you want fast and effective results then you may want to consider treatments that will provide the best results.
If you are looking to take it to the next level with dark circles then Mederm Esthetics recommends dermatological techniques; for example, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), IPL (intense pulse light), laser treatment and Microdermabrasion. These facial treatments will allow you to achieve a more youthful appearance.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelets are cells that are found in our skin to help fight against aging. PRP can help to soften the puffiness under the eyes and help to boost collagen. So how does the treatment work? It is a very well known treatment as it is a modern take on skin care. It utilizes a small amount of a person’s blood to restore soft tissue and eliminate the
appearance of aging.
Although the treatment has been nicknamed the ‘Vampire facial,’
don’t be fooled or intimidated by the name, as it is actually a very
simple procedure. Only a small amount of blood is taken from the
patient and put into a syringe.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is another solution to treating dark circles. The treatment recovers the surface of the skin under the eyes and eliminates any extra pigmentation that can result in dark circles. Laser treatments are also effective as they can also kindle collagen production underneath the exterior of the skin. This can make the skin thicker, which means that circles are less likely to appear.
The process of laser-skin resurfacing is great because it is easy to do. The laser eliminates the top layer of skin, which then allows new skin cells to form. An important thing to know about laser skin resurfacing is that the deeper the treatment, the more time it will take for the skin to heal. It is crucial that you avoid being in the sun for at least a few
days following the treatment.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
Another treatment for dark circles is IPL (Intense Pulse Light). IPL treatment uses light to revitalize the skin and eliminate dark under- eye circles, but it is distinct from Laser Skin Resurfacing. IPL treatment is a more suitable alternative for people who contain petite blood vessels near the surface of the skin that are producing dark circles. When this is the case, several treatments of IPL will be needed to get premium results.
Before performing this treatment, it is vital to know that the treatment can cause irritation, mainly when executed near the eye area. You might experience stinging, swelling or discoloration, but don’t fret as it will fade in a few weeks.
Maintaining your skins vigorous radiance is always desired and this can be achieved with microdermabrasion. With Microdermabrasion, there are two kinds of microdermabrasion techniques. In one strategy crystals are used and in the other, a diamond-tipped wand is used to evacuate pigmentation under the eyes.
Abrasion is the principal idea of the diamond microdermabrasion strategy; a diamond tip stick is used to eliminate the dead skin and to empower new skin advancement for the expulsion of dark circles. With crystal microdermabrasion, aluminum oxide gems are utilized to manage pigmentation.
