Dark Eye Circle Removal with Non-Invasive Laser
People often say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The truth is that the skin around the eyes are about 10 times thinner than other parts of the face. This means that the eyes will likely age a lot faster than other areas of the face.
Just one night of interrupted sleep will likely show up on your eyes in the form of eye bags or dark eye circles. However, fatigue or lack of sleep are not the only factors that may result in those dreaded dark under-eye circles.
So what exactly are dark eye circles? And why do you get them?
Causes of dark eye circles
SENSITIVE, THIN SKIN The thinner the skin, the most obvious blood vessels under the skin will show. These blood vessels can sometimes become very apparent, contributing to your dark eye circle woes.
INTRINSIC AGEING Our face lose volume as we age. The thin, sensitive skin and the loss of fat pad on the face can create depression, emphasizing the appearance of dark eye circles.
EXCESS PIGMENTATION Prolonged exposure to the sun without sunscreen can cause deposition of pigmentation around the eyes.
EXCESS RUBBING OF EYES Constant rubbing of eyes can cause blood vessels to break. As a result, blood may pool under the skin and create a purplish, reddish hue under the eyes.
LACK OF SLEEP If you get less than an average of 8 hours of shut-eye a day, you may be more prone to getting dark eye circle because blood vessels dilate, causing an increase in blood flow to the area.
GENETICS Unfortunately, even if you a healthy lifestyle with sufficient rest, you may still get dark eye circles. This is because dark eye circles can be caused by hereditary factors. If you grandparents, parents or siblings have them, then you are likely to get it too.
Treating dark eye circles using Dual Yellow Laser
Using Dual Yellow Laser, Refresh Dark Eye Circle Laser is a mild, yet effective treatment specially designed to penetrate deep into the skin without harming any tissue.
Emitting wavelengths of 511nm and 578nm, Dual Yellow Laser corresponds well with absorption peaks for vascular and pigmented conditions. These wavelengths are capable of reaching the deep dermis and break down the pigments without causing any collateral damage to the surrounding skin.
Unlike traditional ablative lasers, Dual Yellow Laser is very gentle and does not break the skin during the treatment, making it a well-received option for removing dark eye circles.
What is the downtime?
The procedure takes about 20 minutes to complete. This treatment is suitable for people with sensitive skin.
For people with extremely sensitive skin, it may appear mildly red immediately after the treatment but it should subside in a matter of hours.
How many sessions do I need?
You should see some improvement after one session. However, depending on the severity of the condition, the doctor may recommend you to undergo another 3-4 sessions for a better, longer-lasting result.
