👀 Dark circles under the eyes may be due to genetics, allergies, sleep deprivation, pigmentation, vasculature, or volume loss/bone resorption. ⭐️If the dark circles are due to allergies, simply taking an antihistamine daily can improve the appearance of the lower eyelid. ⭐️Pigmentation can be ameliorated with daily sunscreen use and brightening creams. ⭐️Vasculature can be corrected with vascular-specific lasers or mitigated with eye creams containing ingredients with vasoconstrictive properties. ⭐️Dark circles due to volume loss can be improved with hyaluronic acid injections in the tear trough. ⭐️Puffiness under the eyes or “eye bags” usually require surgical intervention and may sometimes be improved with intralesional steroids.
