With age, our face tends to reflect the slightest change in our daily sleep patterns. Physical tiredness is often reflected in dark circles. Despite using creams or temporary make-up, dark circles are pronounced marks that we have trouble getting rid of.
A healthy lifestyle is very important. It is crucial to get a good night’s sleep, on average between 7 and 8 hours. You can then choose cosmetic products to revitalize the eye contour area, but dark circles will not disappear completely.
There are many types of circles, under-eye hollows or dark circles or puffiness under the eyes. Each circle requires a specific treatment.
These are genetic. Often there is a hereditary causes and dark circles can be found in several family members. Dark circles are purple or a vein-like color.
In the case of dark circles, the skin is very fine and shows the blood pigments under the dermis. This “transparency” phenomenon makes the skin pigmented.
There are 2 options for treating dark circles . These are abrasive techniques in that they abrade pigmented skin to help it regenerate with better quality.
Hyaluronic acid injections to correct the blue and purple color. Treatment of the purplish color is tricky, so we recommend thickening the delicate skin in this area with a filler injection. A good anti-dark circle cream is also important.
Hollows under the lower eyelids are very frequent in men and women. Under-eye hollows tend to be the most annoying as they make the eyes look tired and dull.
While multiple factors encourage the appearance of under-eye hollows, the main factors are:
Naturally, at Lazeo, we have treatments that can correct circles and remedy this imperfection with lasting results.
Hyaluronic acid is an effective remedy for the medical filling of under-eye hollows.
Hyaluronic acid is an essential substance and a natural component of our skin. It helps to hydrate and renew the cells in our skin.
In medicine it is used as an extremely well-tolerated and biodegradable implant to treat facial wrinkles.
No tests are necessary as it is not an allergenic substance.
The result is immediate and it lasts between 9 and 12 months.
The filling of under-eye hollows with hyaluronic acid takes place at a medical practice.
The filling of under-eye hollows is always performed with very delicate hyaluronic acid that is injected deeply until it reaches the bone so as to avoid any surface irregularities.
The procedure lasts between 15 and 30 minutes according to the complexity of the dark circles.
Effects following the procedure and results
Patients can resume their activities immediately after the injection session. At Lazeo, we always recommend one or two touch-up injections to enhance the work and prolong the effects.
The effects of the injections in the dark circles last between 12 and 18 months.
The lower eyelids are “full” because the fat in the eye area is blocked and constantly loosens the skin of the lower eyelid. In any case, it is necessary to make a distinction between this phenomenon and puffy eyes which appear first thing in the morning. Morning puffiness is caused by lying on our backs for several hours, which makes lymph accumulate during the night. This phenomenon disappears shortly after waking up.
To treat these fat pads, the only possible treatment is surgery on the lower eyelids, also known as blepharoplasty.
In young patients, the procedure is more often performed from inside the eyelid since fat hernias are still limited in volume and the skin is simply loose but there is no excess. This is why the scar remains invisible.
In older patients, it is often necessary to lift excess skin at the same time: the procedure will therefore be performed more traditionally with a scar just below the lash line.
Starting at €500 and depending on the quantity of product used.
On average, the effects of the hyaluronic acid injections on dark circles last between 12 and 18 months.
There is a risk of bruising that may last for 3 or 4 days after the injection. This can be concealed with make-up.
We recommend no exercise for 24 hours following the procedure
Hyaluronic acid injections on dark circles are not as painful as they seem. In fact, most people find the treatment surprisingly comfortable.
The treatment is performed using a small needle or cannula.
Before the treatment, your aesthetic doctor can apply a numbing cream to make you more comfortable. At Lazeo, we use a filler that also contains an anesthetic, which makes the whole treatment virtually painless.
As hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the body it is very well tolerated. The only reported side effects are slight bruising and minor swelling where the injection is inserted. They generally disappear within a few days without any intervention.
You must have hollow dark circles to receive hyaluronic acid injections. Bulging dark circles, also called “puffiness”, would be treated with surgical blepharoplasty instead. The Lazeo doctor will know immediately whether your dark circles are suitable for injections during the initial consultation.
Cosmetic surgery is often expensive, but the aesthetic medicine alternatives are generally much more affordable.
At Lazeo, a dark circle injection costs around 500 euros. This price includes a touch-up performed 15 days after the first injection.
