Dark Circle Removal Treatments by Dr. Manisha Mareddy:

Dark circles under the eyes are a common aesthetic concern caused by various factors such as lifestyle changes, stress, increased screen time, and nutritional deficiencies.

Dr. Manisha Mareddy, a renowned cosmetic dermatologist, offers advanced and US FDA-approved treatments to effectively and safely reduce dark circles, providing long-lasting satisfaction.

What are Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?

Dark circles can manifest as brownish or bluish skin tones or as a shadowing effect in the eye area, giving a tired, aged, and unhealthy appearance. While not a health condition itself, dark circles can be a significant concern for facial aesthetics. Treating dark circles can be challenging and requires the expertise of a qualified medical professional.

Common Causes of Dark Circles:

Dark circles result from a combination of internal (endogenous) and external (exogenous) factors. The most common causes include:

Internal or Endogenous Factors:

  1. Heredity (Constitutional POH): Genes play a role in determining the amount and distribution of melanin, which affects hyperpigmentation around the eyes.
  2. Nutritional Deficiency: Deficiencies in iron and vitamin K can lead to discoloration under the eyes.
  3. Peri-Orbital Edema: Fluid accumulation under the eyes, known as puffiness, can result from allergies, salt and water retention, high blood pressure, medical disorders, and sinus infections. This can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
  4. Prominent Vasculature: Reduced skin thickness exposes the underlying vasculature, particularly around veins, making the eye area appear darker.
  5. Aging: Collagen degradation with age leads to hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning of the skin under the eyes, making blood vessels more visible.
  6. Tear Trough Depression: This age-related change involves the loss of fat, thinning of the overlying skin, and descent of the cheek area, resulting in a hollow appearance under the eyes, creating shadows and dark circles.
  7. Acanthosis Nigricans: Thickened skin around the eyes, giving a velvet-pigmented appearance, can be associated with hormonal imbalances and metabolic disorders.
  8. Other Causes: Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, dermal melanocytosis, and pigmentary demarcation lines.

External or Exogenous Factors:

  1. Fatigue and Stress: Poor sleep patterns and environmental or psychological stress can strain the muscles around the eyes, leading to dark circles. While not necessarily a sign of tiredness, dark circles and fatigue often appear correlated.
  2. Sunlight: Exposure to sunlight increases melanin production, contributing to periorbital hyperpigmentation.
  3. Medication: Certain hormonal medications and ocular hypotensive eyedrops (used for glaucoma) can cause the formation of dark circles.
  4. Alcohol/Smoking: Excessive smoking and alcohol consumption can worsen periorbital hyperpigmentation. Smoking, in particular, affects skin microcirculation and contributes to dark circles.

Diagnosis of Periorbital Hyperpigmentation (POH):

POH is diagnosed through a comprehensive approach, considering medical and hereditary history, lifestyle, dietary habits, and environmental stressors. A thorough cutaneous examination is conducted to establish an accurate diagnosis and determine the appropriate treatment.

Preventing Dark Circles:

To prevent dark circles from appearing under your eyes, consider the following measures:

  1. Get Adequate Sleep: Sufficient rest for your facial muscles aids in overall body rejuvenation and repair during sleep.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Drinking an adequate amount of water keeps your skin hydrated, acting as a natural moisturizer and cleanser through perspiration.
  3. Maintain a Healthy Diet: A well-balanced diet plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin and hair. Limit processed food products for optimal skin health.
  4. Protect Your Skin: Regularly use sunscreen and moisturizer to shield the delicate skin around your eyes from harmful sun exposure.
  5. Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes: Frequent eye rubbing can contribute to dark circles, so refrain from this habit.

Are Home Remedies Effective?

While there is abundant information on home remedies for dark circles, their efficiency in treating skin concerns lacks conclusive scientific evidence. It is recommended to avoid practicing home remedies as they may lead to unpredictable reactions and potentially worsen the situation.

If you are seeking a reliable solution for dark circles, Dr. Manisha Mareddy, offers various US FDA-approved advanced aesthetic treatments, including:

  1. Topical Applications: Creams containing ingredients like kojic acid, retinoids, azelaic acid, arbutin, and Vitamin C to reduce dark circles. These should be used under medical supervision to avoid potential side effects.
  2. Oral Medications: Dr. Manisha Mareddy may recommend blood investigations to identify underlying conditions such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, or nutritional deficiencies. Based on the results, suitable treatments or medications can be prescribed.
  3. Chemical Peels: Customized chemical peels using different concentrations and types, such as lactic acid, AHA (alpha-hydroxyl acid), or TCA (Trichloroacetic) peels, can effectively address superficial pigmentation in the delicate eye area without causing irritation.
  4. Microneedling Radiofrequency & Laser Resurfacing: Utilizing US FDA-approved RF and Laser resurfacing technology, Dr. Manisha Mareddy performs minimally invasive treatments to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing skin laxity and improving the appearance of dark circles.
  5. Hyaluronic Fillers: Dr. Manisha Mareddy can address shadowing effects and tear trough formation due to aging by injecting hyaluronic fillers. This procedure provides instant results by lifting and volumizing sagging skin in the under-eye area.
  6. Botox: To alleviate fine wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, around the eyes, Dr. Manisha Mareddy may recommend Botox treatment, a popular option.
