How to Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes Without Surgery - Cosmetic Eye Treatments in Ann Arbor MI

If you’re like many people, you’re unhappy with the dark circles under your eyes – but there may be something you can do about them. This guide explains how to treat dark circles under eyes so you can look refreshed and rejuvenated.

How to Treat Dark Circles Under Eyes

Over time, the fat under our eyes starts to disappear – and that causes dark circles to appear; it also causes a baggy appearance because the skin is looser and saggier. There just isn’t enough fat beneath that skin to fill it out.

There are a couple of things you can try at home to reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags, though none of them are long-term solutions. You might try:

  • Using cool compresses under your eyes to reduce swelling
  • Get more sleep
  • Treat allergies
  • Hydrate yourself
  • Elevate your head
  • Apply cold tea bags to your eyes (black or green)

Though these treatments can give you a temporary boost in the dark circle department, there are more long-lasting solutions that you can get without surgery.

Dark Circles Under Eyes: Tightening Treatments

You can tighten the skin under your eyes to remove bags and lighten dark circles with a treatment called TempSure Envi. TempSure Envi tightens the skin and promotes collagen production – and when your body makes more collagen under your eyes, it fills them out and treats the root cause of dark circles.

This treatment also helps firm up eye bags, which can make you look younger and more refreshed.

TempSure Envi is a nonsurgical solution, and when used in conjunction with a proper skincare regimen, it can help reduce or eradicate dark circles under your eyes.

What Causes Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Dark circles are most commonly caused by being tired – so if you wake up one morning and feel like the dark circles under your eyes are really noticeable, don’t panic. It could just mean that you need some extra rest and relaxation. And sometimes, puffy eyelids can make your under-eye area look dark; that’s because they cast a shadow on the area. In these two cases, treatment is simple: get some rest, elevate your head with an extra pillow at night, cut down on your salt intake and hydrate yourself.

If the dark circles persist, you may want to explore other options. Your best way forward is most likely talking to a doctor who understands what’s causing your dark circles and who has the tools to treat them without surgery. Though there are surgical treatments to deal with dark circles under the eye, many people want to exhaust all their other options first – and that’s where a conversation between you and your doctor comes in.

Your doctor will most likely try to determine if there are environmental causes for your dark eye circles, such as allergens that are making your eyes puffy or lack of sleep that increases their appearance. Then, you can discuss treatment options that may include a new skin care regimen or a non-surgical treatment to tighten and firm the skin while promoting collagen production.

The good news is that you can treat dark circles under your eyes if you know the underlying cause. If it’s collagen and fat loss due to aging, there are plenty of treatment available to restore their appearance and leave you looking younger and more refreshed.
