Dark circles: what are they?
Dark circles are that purplish or bluish shade that develops under the eyes, often accompanied by puffiness, an accumulation of fatty tissue.
Dark circles and puffiness are sometimes misunderstood, but it's important to remember that they should be treated differently when choosing an aesthetic treatment.
However, sometimes reducing puffiness also reduces dark circles and vice versa.
The causes of the appearance of dark circles
As we have already mentioned, dark circles can result from a hectic lifestyle, lack of sleep, or, genetic factors.
However, other potential causes include:
- Hyperpigmentation of the skin of the eyelids.
- Skin so thin that muscles and blood vessels are visible.
- An allergy or inflammation around the eyes.
- Skin aging.
- Lacrimal duct depression.
In general, we can conclude that if some reasons are ruled out, dark circles are usually an indication of eyelid tissue damage; by treating them, the quality of the layers of the skin is improved, counteracting the imperfection.
Cosmetic medicine or surgery?
Cosmetic medicine or surgery is the most effective way to completely eradicate the defect of hollow or dark circles.
Thanks to medical advances in Turkey, there are painless, quick, and side-effect-free concealer treatments that directly target the blemish to eliminate it permanently.
To have noticeable and lasting results, it is always advisable to seek the advice of a qualified professional, who can direct you to the best concealer treatments.
Non-surgical concealer treatments in Turkey
Depending on the type of dark circles, various medical treatments will be possible to get rid of unsightly dark circles.
The fractional laser allows you to target dark circles in-depth, activating important tissue replacement and repair processes. This treatment eliminates older and pigmented cells, stimulates the production of collagen, and promotes the appearance of more elastic and compact tissues.
With the laser, the aesthetic doctor will be able to completely eliminate, or at least reduce, the purplish shadow around the eyes.
The most suitable type of laser is chosen according to the extent of the imperfection: low intensity for superficial dark circles or high intensity when the blood flows around the eye is more evident.
Concealer treatment with hyaluronic acid
The filling of dark circles is done through small subcutaneous injections based on hyaluronic acid, which lifts the tissues, promoting the disappearance of bags under the eyes.
The injection is made in the area between the lower eyelid and the cheekbone: the injected substance fills the depressed areas and lifts the tissues.
The hyaluronic acid treatment is painless and is carried out under local anesthesia. It lasts an average of 15 minutes and does not require a recovery period.
Since the filler is absorbable, the effects will last for about a year. At this point, it will be possible to undergo the concealer treatment again, without any contraindications.
Dark circles surgery
Two surgical methods are available in Turkey to treat dark circles:
Lipofilling of dark circles
Lipofilling of dark circles is a surgical procedure that aims to fill the voids in volume that have been created under the eyes, by injecting the patient's autologous fat directly where the filling is needed.
Unlike hyaluronic acid, lipofilling guarantees a permanent result, although around 30% of the injected fat can be absorbed by the body in the first 3 months. Lipofilling also offers the possibility of treating peripheral areas of the face affected by loss of volume, requiring filling.
Lower eyelid surgery (lower blepharoplasty) is a relatively simple and quick procedure that can be used to permanently treat eye bags or dark circles under the eyes. During surgery, excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids can be removed or repositioned, using a technique that leaves no external scar (transconjunctival blepharoplasty). Sometimes an adequate amount of fatty tissue is redistributed in the operated area, able to recreate a more natural and youthful appearance.
Choose the best treatment at favorable prices in Turkey
The best treatment for puffiness or dark circles depends on the patient's individual needs, so it's important to discuss this during a thorough first visit.
Outpatient treatment and lower blepharoplasty can be considered safe procedures and can be performed at any age, ensuring excellent natural results.
The main difference is that surgery and fat grafts are the most lasting solution for puffiness, dark circles and sunken eyes, while fillers are completely metabolized and reabsorbed in less than a year.
The price of the treatment of dark circles depends on the technique adapted to your case. With Turquie Santé, you benefit from advantageous and reduced prices compared to other European destinations.
