What causes dark circles under eyes?

Dark circles under the eyes happen when this skin appears to be dark. They are usually not any sign of a medical problem. However, if discoloration and swelling appear under just one eye and worsen over time, it’s important to seek medical attention.

Some common causes of dark circles include:

  • Lack of sleep

  • Allergies

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Thinning skin under the eyes

  • Anemia

  • Excess sun exposure

  • Rubbing of the eyes

  • Smoking

  • Genetics

  • Thyroid problems

  • Dehydration

Patients who are older, of a darker skin tone, or have family members with dark circles under their eyes are more likely to develop them.

What is an IPL photofacial?

At Renew Laser & Skin, Dr. Desai and Patel perform a photofacial in a private treatment room at their Sugar Land or Addison TX offices. Treatment takes about 20 – 30 minutes. To prepare for IPL treatment, first, your skin is cleaned and dried. Next, we cover your eyes with shields to protect them from the heat. We use non-laser IPL (intense pulsed light) technology to deliver light energy to the treatment area. This light passes through the surface of the skin to help reduce blood flow to broken capillaries, improves the appearance of dark circles, and stimulates collagen production. This new collagen will soften how the skin looks and can treat many things, including wrinkles, redness, and other skin concerns.
