It’s important to understand that there are several treatment options available in the market which may achieve similar results from the ones listed here. This article is also not meant to suggest that the treatments we offer are the only sole or best options.

Dark eye circles are dark-coloured patches or circles around the eyes, which can make someone appear tired and aged. Dark eye circles are caused when the blood vessels beneath the thin and delicate skin around the eyes become dilated or enlarged, allowing more of the underlying dark colour to show through.

There are three main types of dark eye circles which include sunken eye bags, caused by lack of sleep; hollow eyes due to age-related loss of fats and volume; and deep purple discolouration which is usually caused by accumulated blood vessels beneath your skin surface.

They are usually caused by a combination of factors such as genetic predisposition, lifestyle habits and underlying medical conditions. Some of the most common causes of dark eye circles include lack of sleep, stress, poor nutrition, sun exposure and dehydration. Dehydration and lack of sleep, both of which reduce the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and can exacerbate the appearance of dark eye circles. Hyaluronic acid is essential for providing moisture and volume to the skin, which in turn helps to keep it looking healthy and supple.

Types of Dark Eye Circle Treatments

The most common type of dark eye circle treatments are those that are aimed at tightening the skin around the eyes or improving its texture and colour. To achieve this, treatments such as dermal fillers, skinboosters, radiofrequency and laser treatments are used to stimulate collagen production and improve the skin structure around the eyes. These treatments can help reduce the appearance of dark circles as well as improve the overall look of your eye area.

In Singapore, there are a variety of treatments available that can help with reducing or removing dark eye circles. The most popular treatment options include:

1. Laser Treatments

Laser treatment works by targeting the underlying blood vessels and tightening the skin around the eyes. This helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles, improve skin tone and texture, and stimulate collagen production for improved overall results.

At our clinic we offer a few kinds of laser treatments.

SP Dynamis Laser

4D Dynamis Pro Laser

Another treatment by Dynamis Pro is Fotona 4D lasers, it helps to rejuvenate all the layers of skin as well as stimulate collagen production to support structures around the eye which reduces eye bag appearance.

2. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a popular choice when it comes to treating dark eye circles as they help to lift the area around the eyes and restore lost fats. This helps to make the skin look firmer and smoother in appearance, thus reducing puffiness or saggy-looking skin around the eyes. However, they need to be re-injected after a certain period to maintain the results.

Dermal fillers around the eye are one of the most challenging yet fulfilling treatments. It requires specific fillers and skill sets to achieve the best results. Here at Cienna Aesthetics, our doctor is experienced at performing dermal fillers to help you achieve your desired look.

It can be injected deep and superficially around the eyes to preserve volume and rejuvenate the skin around the eye by stimulating collagen. This would tighten and thicken the skin, reducing eyebags which in turns reducing dark eye circle. By promoting collagen production and improving skin hydration, this treatment not only reduces the visibility of dark circles but also improves overall skin health and vitality.
