Under Eye Dark Circles

Under eye dark circles is a very common condition where ther is darkening of the skin of the eyelids and sometimes extending onto cheeks. There may be a genetic tendency to develop this pigmentation in some people. The eyelids may appear dark because of sunken eyes, increased blood supply in the eyelids or wrinkling of eyelids skin. Stress and mechanical eye strain may aggravate the pigmentation. Sometimes skin allergies may also give rise to dark circles. 

The treatment should be focused at correcting the underlying cause and improving the pigmentation. Creams can be used to lighten the pigmentation. Chemical peeling is also useful. Fractional Erbium-YAG laser or Q-switched Nd-YAG Laser (with protection of the eyeball with a metallic shield) gives good results.
