Under Eye Dark Circle: All You Need to Know


What causes Dark Under eye Circles? Dr Manjiri Puranik - Cosmetic Physician, Insta-sculpt tells us all about this skin problem and how to overcome it.

Dark Circles could be a temporary problem or a persistent one. Persistent darkness could be because of actual pigmentation or due to various other reasons, like thin translucent skin around the eyes through which the dilated veins are seen making it appear dark. Sunken eyes also appear darker. Anemia makes the skin pale and cause the area around the eyes to appear dark. Some people may have actual pigmentation around eyes due to friction, hereditary causes or pigmentation demarcation line. Continued allergy to a kajal can also cause pigmentation around eyes.

What Is Pigmentation? Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body. If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison's disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter.

How to treat actual pigmentation around the eyes?
One has to start using a sunscreen in the day time. Treatment like RF will also help to get rid of under eye dark circles & pigmentation. RF Removing Dark Circles and Puffy Eye Treatment With deep thermal skin tissue treatment through light wave and RF, enhance skin collagen to naturally proliferate and improve blood circulation while reducing dark pigment. A younger and firmer skin can be achieved. Radio frequency is different than laser however it is often used in conjunction with laser treatments in a clinical setting. Radio frequency (RF) usually refers to oscillations in electrical circuits. Aesthetic treatments use non-ablative (RF) energy in short intense pulses that oscillate through the skin to heat targeted tissue. Radio frequency (RF) is often used to tighten the skin. The (RF) energy penetrates the skin and stimulates the contraction of collagen and the production of new collagen for skin tightening.

Radio frequency devices use a variety of delivery systems and penetrate to varying depths. Radio frequency can be monopolar or bipolar. Bipolar devices are often combined with other types of technology such as infrared light.

When RF is combined with other energy sources such as lasers and IPL, the laser or IPL energy will be absorbed by the targeted chromophores (melanin or hemoglobin), resulting in an increased temperature in the target areas.

The increases in temperature lowers the tissue impedance to those areas and the RF energy will stream preferentially to the warmer areas with lowered impedance.
