Remedies for Dark Circles Under Eyes
Many factors contribute to the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. These include; food allergies, particular dairy products, kidney disorders, cardiovascular insufficiencies, toxicity and aging. Regarding aging factors, many individuals do not realize that it typically is related to genetic inheritance. In some people, one aspect of aging is significant thinning of the skin around the eyes and a loss of “fat padding” in the face, both of which can result in dark circles. One of the best ways to eliminate dark circles is with advanced laser treatments such as Coolaser ™ technique. These procedures are non-invasive, quick and require relatively little recovery time. The new advanced therapies work for both light skin and dark skin, which in the past may not have responded well to traditional laser treatments. Coolaser ™ technique may also be combined with dermal fillers for the most attractive result. At Epione Beverly Hills, Medical Director Simon Ourian, M.D. offers the Coolaser ™ technique, his proprietary laser system, for the treatment of dark circles. “Depending on the needs of the individual patient I like to combine Coolaser ™ technique with a dermal filler such as Radiesse for optimal results,” says Doctor Ourian.
Alternatives to Dark Circles Remedies Treatment could be bleaching creams or eyelid surgery.
The skin is first prepared for the Dark Circles Remedies Treatment by applying a special topical cream to the area that is to be treated. During the 20-minute procedure, a fine laser is used to fragment and destroy the pigments in the darker areas of the skin. The area heals within few days and results are a more youthful, less tired appearance.
The best candidates for the Dark Circles Remedies Treatment are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 30 or older, but if Dark Circles run in your family, you may decide to have this procedure at a younger age.
A few medical conditions make this procedure more risky. They include thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism and Graves’ disease. Also, dry eye or lack of sufficient tears, high blood pressure (or other circulatory disorders), cardiovascular disease, and diabetes all add to the risk of this procedure. A detached retina or glaucoma is also reason for caution. If an individual suffers from either of these it is important to check with your ophthalmologist before you have treatment. If at any time there is a concern regarding any of these risk factors, the physician might recommend other forms of “anti-dark circles” remedies.
This procedure can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. You can expect a more youthful look, but it is important to have the correct expectations before beginning treatment.
Recovery of Dark Circles Remedies Treatment
You can expect to be able to read or watch television within 2–3 days after the treatment. Most feel ready to go out in public after 7–10 days. We recommend that one should not wear makeup until 7–10 days after surgery. If you wear contact lenses, you will be required to wait for two weeks. After the two week period of recovery is over, one can assume their normal daily routines.
Your physician will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for the dark circles removal surgery. These instructions will include guidelines on eating, drinking, smoking, taking or avoiding vitamins, iron tablets and any other forms of medications. If you develop a cold or an infection of any kind, especially a skin infection, your surgery may have to be postponed. Also, while you are making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure and, if needed, to help you at home for a day or two. You can control any discomfort with the pain medication prescribed by your physician. If you feel any severe pain, it is important that you call your physician immediately. It is normal to feel a bit anxious or depressed in the days or weeks following treatment while you heal. If you suffer from dark circles and have tried over the counter “anti-dark circle” options and are unhappy with the results, Dark Circle Remedies Treatment could be right for you.
