Regardless what the cause may be, visible dark eye circles can leave you looking tired and unattractive. No matter how much you try to conceal them with foundation, you cannot seem to hide them forever.

Although it is true that dark eye circles can be caused by lack of sleep or severe allergies, the truth is that genetic factors play a more important role than you think. Dark eye circles are a result of the extremely thin layer of skin below the eyes showing the blood vessels more clearly than anywhere else on the body. To put things in perspective, the skin around our eyes is about 0.5mm, whereas the skin around our palms is about 1.5mm thick.

It is also precisely this reason that the skin around the eyes age first because the skin is thin. The extremely thin skin also means that there is very little collagen and elastin fibers to prevent aging. It loses its elasticity and its ability to regenerate. As a result, your eyes are the first to display signs of aging.

It may seem like a lost cause when it comes to preventing premature aging around the eyes. Truth is, there are some effective ways you can treat those pesky dark eye circles to make you look fresh and rejuvenated. Here are some effective, convenient solutions for dark eye circles.


Having sufficient sleep is an inexpensive way to minimize dark eye circles. Resting well keeps you energetic and helps keep your eyes bright. By getting enough rest, your body is able to undergo cell renewal and repairs cell damage.


One of the latest and most advanced laser treatments offered by aesthetic doctors in Singapore is the use of a copper bromide based laser treatment that offers multi-wavelength treatment to treat a wide range of skin pigmentation issues such as vascular lesions, melasma, rosacea, and acne. This gentle, yet effective laser treatment breaks down the dark pigments under the eyes. Unlike most other laser treatments, Dual Yellow Laser does not break the skin surface. Hence, downtime is almost negligible.


AGNES uses an advanced Korean technology to administer targeted radiofrequency waves to the under eye area. This is achieved by using special micro-insulated needles to deliver radiofrequency waves to tighten loose skin. Collagen remodeling occurs so that the treated area will become firmer and younger-looking. With less wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes, your eyes will look brighter and livelier.


Using Hyaluronic Acid (HA), aesthetic doctors are able to treat dark eye circles and eye bags easily by introducing dermal fillers of varying viscosity directly into the problem area to immediately rejuvenate the under eyes. By hydrating the problem area and stretching the skin, the under eye area does not appear sunken. It greatly reduces the dark shadows by plumping up and smoothening out the deficient area around the eyes.


Applying cold compress every morning and night for about 10 minutes each time can temporarily reduce dark eye circle and eye bags. Do this just before an important event and notice the visible suppression of dark eye circle and eye bags!
