There can be many reasons for dark circles under the eyes. Dr. Pacheco can offer a diagnosis and treatment options during a consultation in our Annapolis area medical spa.
For many patients, dark circles have become more noticeable as they age, the likely result of a loss of fat beneath sensitive skin that is also thinning. Among other factors, heredity can play a role in the appearance of dark circles beneath the eyes or in the eyelid area.
Dr. Pacheco will thoroughly examine your skin and make appropriate treatment recommendations, sometimes combined with professional skin care that will enhance and prolong your results.
