Treatment Options for Under Eye Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eyes are increasingly common. Both men and women alike seek cosmetic treatments for their dark circles with a cosmetic plastic surgeon. Dr. Robert Schwarcz is a New York oculoplastic facial surgeon and board-certified cosmetic surgeon who regularly treats patients without the need for surgery for dark circles under the eyes.

Of course, with surgery, results are more permanent. Click here to learn about cosmetic surgical procedures available to you. While without surgery, there is no recovery or downtime.

How To Choose the Right Treatment Option For Your Dark Circles

Facial Dermal Fillers

Facial fillers can eliminate the darkness of under eye circles while filling in lost volume. Restylane is a specific and popular facial dermal filler used to eliminate and treat under eye dark circles and can fill in the hollow crevices beneath the eyes.

Chemical Peels

When the discoloration and darkness under the eyes are caused by sun exposure or genetics, the treatment may include a chemical peel. The peel can vary in intensity and strength but because of the delicate nature of the skin beneath the eyes, your plastic surgeon may recommend a mild chemical peel.

The World of Laser Treatment

Our practice offers cosmetic procedures utilizing the following lasers: The Clear and Brilliant Laser, Intense Pulsed Light Laser, the ClearLift Laser Skin Resurfacing Laser, and the Total FX C02 Laser.

The benefits of the Intense Pulsed Light laser include lightening dark spots on the skin, broken blood vessels and Rosacea. TheĀ Total FX C02 Laser is a skin resurfacing procedure similar to a chemical peel, with different levels of intensity requiring anesthetics.

The ClearLift laser treats fine lines, wrinkles, redness, age spots and unwanted veins. The Clear and Brilliant laser works to treat the early signs of aging.
