If dark circles beneath your eyes are having a negative effect on your appearance, you have probably already tried several over-the-counter remedies. Dark circles can make you look tired and older, giving your eyes a “sunken” appearance – even when you are well-rested and healthy. Dark circles are caused by tiny blood vessels beneath the skin under your eyes, which swell beyond their normal size. When this occurs, the dark color of the veins begins to show through the skin.
Many people with allergies have dark circles, because nasal congestion causes the blood vessels to become enlarged. Too much salt in your diet and excessive smoking can also cause these vessels to swell. Additionally, as you age, your skin under the eyes will become thinner, causing the dark color of the vessels to become more apparent.
At Facial Aesthetics, we offer some of the most advanced and effective skin treatment technology currently available to reduce the effects of dark circles and other skin problems. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) – also called FotoFacial™ – is capable of treating dark circles, wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, and a wide range of other skin problems.
