How to Best Reduce Dark Under-eye Circles and Under-Eye Hollows?
Dark under-eye circles or periorbital hyperpigmentation, is a skin condition that involves dark pigmentation of upper and lower eyelids. Aesthetically, dark circles around the eyes can make a person look tired and older than actual age. Dark eye circles tend to be more common in individuals with darker skin and we have many patients who seek treatment for under-eye dark circles in our Dallas and Southlake offices. Dark under-eye circles affects men and women equally, it gets worse with aging due to loss of skin thickness and elasticity and loss of volume below the skin.
