TEAR TROUGH FILLER TREATMENT VIDEO
Dermal Filler for Under Eyes
Dermal filler or tear trough filler, is a popular treatment option for dark circles around the eyes. Dermal filler helps fill in under-eye hollows that naturally occur with age, making them appear less prominent. This is an effective treatment that can last up to 18 months and can soften the dark shadows by filling in the lost volume under the eye. However, it is important to note that this type of treatment does come with risks such as bruising and swelling. It is also important to find a qualified doctor or nurse who has experience performing this type of procedure.

Hydrafacial For Reducing Pigment
Another popular option for reducing dark circles is the Hydrafacial. This facial uses powerful exfoliation techniques combined with serums containing antioxidants and hydrating ingredients that help reduce pigment around the eyes and strengthen skin elastin. This technique can help lighten dark circles while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It’s an excellent choice if you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for treating your dark circles but do not want to undergo surgery or needles. Hydrafacial can be tailored to your specific needs and is a favorite with our doctors and nurses as a maintance treatment to ward off tired eyes with out going under the needle.
Laser Treatments That Minimise Dark Circles
Laser treatments are another great option for reducing dark circles under your eyes. Lasers can target melanin pigmentation in your skin and break it down, leaving behind a brighter complexion overall. Laser treatments are ideal if you want long-term results without any downtime or discomfort from other procedures like dermal fillers. However, it is important to note that laser treatments for pigment near the eye can be quite complex compared to other options so be sure to consult your doctor first before making any decisions on which treatment might be best for you!
Skin Lightening Skincare To Brighten And Lighten Dark Circles
Finally, skin lightening skincare products are another great way to reduce the appearance of dark circles around your eyes. These products use ingredients such as kojic acid and niacinamide which inhibit melanin production and help brighten dull complexions caused by hyperpigmentation or sun damage. Skin lightening skincare products are a great choice if you’re looking for something more affordable than laser treatments or if you simply want a more natural approach when tackling your dark circles. Obagi medical nu-derm kit is an excellent choice for heavy melasma and pigment with 4% hydroquinone to tackle permanent pigment- this can be used close to the under eyes to help lighten and brighten the eyes.
