Dark circles can make the other person think you are sick or run down from exhaustion. While these things can contribute to the dark circles, they are by no means the only causes. Regardless of the reason for them, you have likely entertained the thought of how to remove dark circles without having to go through an invasive procedure that requires significant downtime for recovery.
Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by things like sun damage, aging and volume loss in the cheeks or under the eyes. Melasma, which is caused by excessive pigment in the skin, can be another cause. Although there can be many causes, what is important is the realization that there are ways of treating the condition. So, how to remove dark circles?
One of the most popular methods is laser treatment remove dark circles.
Lasers can remove dark circles under the eyes as well as other skin conditions. The level of discomfort associated with the treatment is minimal, as is the recovery time. In fact, most patients undergoing laser therapy can return to their normal everyday routine immediately, with maybe only a few restrictions.
One of the most important things laser treatments can do when used for skin conditions, including remove dark circles, stimulates the production of extra collagen in the lower layers of the skin. Collagen is a protein that helps hold tissue together and gives it an appearance of fullness. The body naturally produces it, but the level at which it is produced significantly drops off with age. Restoring the collagen level to something similar to what it was during the years before the level started to diminish will also restore the appearance to something closer to what it was during those years as well.
When laser treatments are used to stimulate collagen production, the technology behind these lasers allows the energy to be absorbed by the lower layers without destroying the upper layers. As the laser energy is absorbed by the skin tissue, it is converted to heat. The heat is what causes the body to produce more collagen. Since collagen can help to restore fullness, it helps to get rid of the dark circles under the eyes by making the blood vessels under the skin have less of an impact on the appearance.
