The under-eye is one of the thinner parts of the face and almost everyone can be affected by puffy eye bags and dark under-eye circles. They can be caused a number of reasons such as lack of sleep, ageing, stress, and hormonal changes. They can also be hereditary, as there is a strong genetic component to dark circles.
Certain lifestyle practices such as smoking and staying up at late nights can also be a cause to poor blood circulation. As there are many capillary vessels around our eyes, this results in the formation of dark eye circles. The skin around our eyes are very thin thus making it even more visible. There are several methods for alleviating dark circles, with treatments available in aesthetic clinics in Singapore.
For a more effective solution, laser treatments can be used on pigmented discoloration on the skin, including for around the eyes. For example, the Q-Switch laser targets a beam of energy at a specific wavelength which is absorbed by the pigments such as age spots and freckles. It can also be used for various skin concerns including acne scar removal, skin rejuvenation and pigmentation.
This pulsed-dye laser is safe for use on any part of the body, and works by targeting the blood vessels and capillaries of the vascular lesion. It delivers laser energy to the targeted area, such as dark-coloured blemishes, without affecting the surrounding tissue. With a gentle heating effect, it coagulates the blood vessels which are then absorbed by the body and eventually, eliminates the blemish. V-Beam is used to remove acne scars, rosacea, spider veins, dark eye circles and other imperfections.
With Fractional CO2 laser, the skin’s collagen renewal process is accelerated to rebuild lost collagen and correct skin imperfections. The system produces very fine beams that stimulates new collagen production, for a smoother, plumper skin. This treatment will also help to eliminate pigments and dark circles under the eyes.
Eye thread lifts involve 100% absorbable threads that are implanted into the sub-dermal skin to stimulate the collagen production and leave the skin firmer with more elasticity. This minimally invasive procedure will help to achieve the desired lifting effect below the eyes, giving an improvement in eyebags and dark eye circles.
Tear Trough Filler
This technique of lower eyelid rejuvenation is done using hyaluronic acid-based fillers which are injected into the ‘tear trough’ area under the eye. Very thin needles are used as the skin under the eyes is extremely delicate, however it is also important to choose the best aesthetic doctor in Singapore who is trained to perform this procedure. This treatment is a great way to restore volume and collagen to your eye area, effectively reducing the appearance of dark eye circles.
