Dark Circle Correction

Why dark circle correction?

  • Dark circles under the eyes tend to age your appearance more than wrinkles or gray hair.
  • Dark circles make you look tired and fatigued.
  • When a young person has dark circles, it makes them look old.

So if you are wondering how to improve your dark circles, then you have come to the right place.

Does it work?

This is a photo of Dr. Peter Kim. His right side (left side of the screen) dark circle was treated with filler injection to smoothen it. This photo was taken one week after the injection. Dark circles such as this (deep and associated with loose skin), is not possible to completely iron out the dark circle. It will always be slightly noticeable in certain light conditions. However. the anti aging effect is noticeable.

How can we improve the dark circle?
Dark circles can be caused by many factors:

  • If you have deep hollowness (tear trough & Indian fold) >> filler injection or fat transposition surgery.
  • If you have eye bags >> eye bag correction surgery.
  • If you have loose and excess skin hooding lower eyes >> lower eye lift surgery.
  • If you have visible blood vessels >> laser treatment.

If your dark circle is predominantly due to deep hollowness (tear trough deformity), simple filler injection can help.

What is tear trough deformity?

The tear trough is the groove or valley that begins at the inner corner of your eyes and travels down and out across your cheek. It is a natural groove that is present in everyone. However, in some, this groove is deeper and is often blamed for under-eye dark circles and an aged appearance. 

How can a filler injection correct this?
The filler is a volumizer and it can be used to fill the groove. I like to take a conservative approach by filling the tear trough in small increments. It is essential to avoid overcorrection. Overcorrection can produce a puffy appearance with distortion of the natural-looking under-eye contours and sometimes a bluish-hue called the Tyndall effect.

Can overcorrection be treated?
Yes. We use a filler that can be dissolved if there is an unwanted effect from it. It is 100% reversible!

How long does it last?
Generally speaking 6-9 months. Subsequent injections can produce a longer lasting result.

Yes. it is a popular cosmetic treatment in Asians. It is also very effective. Click here to read more about the safety and the effectiveness of dark circle injections.

Some bruise and some do not. If you do bruise it generally takes a week to recover. However, you can apply makeup to hide it.
