What are dark circles?
Dark circles are the eye bags that usually form on your tear troughs. This is the delicate area under your eye that delineate your upper cheek. As the term implies, the tear troughs seemingly darken due to a buildup of blood vessels and deoxygenated blood becomes blue. Thus, the distinguishing bluish tint under your eyes.
There are several ways to treat dark circles. One of the most common cosmetic procedures for alleviating eye bags is dermal fillers or tear trough filler treatments. Other dark circle treatments include platelet-rich plasma therapy, anti-wrinkle injections, peels and microneedling.
Dermal fillers for dark circle treatments are a non-surgical technique that alleviates the sunken appearance of your tear troughs. It works by adding volume to your hollow under eyes. Dermal fillers help boost the appearance of your seemingly dark sunken under-eyes.

Skinclub Dark Circles Treatment
Dark circles under the eyes are not health-threatening. However, it can affect the aesthetics of your face making patients look tired, aged and lifeless.
Here are common factors that may lead to the formation of dark circles around the eyes:
Tear trough dermal filler is one of the best cosmetic techniques that can help alleviate the hollowness under your eyes. These fillers involve the use of hyaluronic acid substances that work well with your skin’s mechanism. This naturally occurring ingredient is similar to the collagen-producing substance found in the body.
Tear trough fillers work by pumping up the volume of the bagging or sunken under-eyes. As the fillers add mass to your tear troughs, it also improves your facial skin tone. Thus, imploring a natural and young-looking appearance. However, if your concern is darkened tear troughs, dermal fillers may not be the most ideal procedure for you.
In some cases, dermal fillers can treat both hollow and shadowy ender-eyes. However, if after a tear trough filler treatment and your dark circles remain shadowy, another treatment may be recommended as this may be a pigmentation issue. In which case, your cosmetic physician may recommend a combined treatment for more optimum results.
Here are some Melbourne treatments that can be combined with tear trough fillers:
Other tear trough treatments include the following:
This treatment is best used for shadowy tear troughs coupled with fine lines and wrinkles. It works by hampering nerve signals from inducing blood vessels in producing deoxygenated blood that causes the darkening of tear troughs.
This is a cosmetic technique that works within the underlying layers of the skin to induce the supply of collagen. When there is enough collagen in the tear troughs, the bruising-like appearance of the under-eyes are reduced and their appearance is improved.
This is a top-of-the-line medical innovation that uses the patient’s own blood in treating and improving deteriorating or injured body structure.
The procedure involves the separation of the platelet-rich contents of the blood and transforming it into plasma. This, in turn, is reinjected into the tear troughs for the rejuvenation of the eye area.
For most medical procedures and some cosmetic treatments, traditional surgery remains the gold standard in treating or at least alleviating the conditions of patients. Similarly, patients may opt for surgical treatment in combating their tired-looking, hollow, and darkened eye area.
This treatment directly targets the swelling vessels that show signs of aging. Surgery may also be performed to augment grafting materials such as autologous fats or synthetic fillers to restore the lost volume in the tear troughs. Unlike a non-surgical procedure, this may entail a patient a couple of days of hospital stay.
Tear trough treatments vary depending on the specific needs of patients. In most cases, the factors affecting your tear troughs, the severity of its condition, the skin’s laxity, your preferred treatment, and the results you are expecting are taken into consideration during your consultation.
During your appointment, your tear troughs are evaluated according to how thin the skin in the area is, how hollow and dark they are, and how severe your eye bags are. Other factors can also be considered including age, medical history, genetics, hours of sleep, loss of fat pads in your under-eyes, cheek structures, lifestyle habits, and allergens.
After a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, your cosmetic doctor will create a treatment plan that will specifically address your tear trough woes. If dermal filler treatment is not the right option for you, he or she will discuss it with you. In case there is a need for combined treatment, your doctor will also help you understand why this is so.
When the tear trough or the structures of the upper cheeks and eyes look tired, the person tends to look aged. Thus, many people opt for cosmetic approaches to alleviate these ageing signs. However, to optimize the results of your treatment, make sure to follow the aftercare guidelines provided by your cosmetic doctor.
