What Causes Dark Circles?
We can’t blame one thing for all of our eye problems. Sleep deprivation, dehydration, high-stress levels, bad diet, drinking too much alcohol, and age can contribute to the appearance of swelling, puffiness, and dark circles around the eyes. Genetics also comes into play when accessing skin problems.
Aging is also one of the leading causes of dark, under-eye circles. One of the leading causes of dark circles and puffiness is aging. With age, the tissues supporting your eyes weakens causing heaviness in the eyelids and droopy eyes which causes saggy eye area. Reduced collagen production and increased breakdown cause fat to shift to the lower eyelids. The main cause of dark circles with age as a contributing factor is hollowing in the under-eye area from the loss of deep fat. Furthermore, fluids can accumulate in the space below your eyes causing swelling and puffiness. This can also occur in young people and contribute to tired-looking eyes. But in young people, the most logical explanation for this condition would be several lifestyle factors. These include:
- Sleep deprivation
- Increased use of electronics
- High-stress levels
- Bad eating habits
- Low intake of vitamins
What Does Microneedling Under The Eyes Involve?
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment where minuscule needles of a dermaroller penetrate the surface of the skin under the eyes. The small punctures are a form of controlled injury that initiates the process of healing the skin and new skin cells are generated. The skin rises to the surface producing glower, youthful-looking eyes that take away the darkness and puffiness under the eyes. The treatment is virtually pain-free as a local anesthetic is applied to the delicate eye area before microneedling. It only takes a day or two for the skin to heal. A minimum of 3 sessions is recommended, for treating under eye area with each session about six weeks apart.
Is it Effective?
Microneedling for under eye area has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for catering dark circles and puffiness. Although, it is a much safer treatment that the other treatment options that are out there. After completing your microneedling sessions, you will start to notice a reduction in your eye bags. The under-eye wrinkles will gradually vanish as well. With the help of increased collagen that is produced after micro needling, the under-eye skin will become firmer and tighter. This treatment sheds years off the look of your face, by reducing dark circles, wrinkles, and eye bags, making you appear more refreshed and younger-looking.
