Dark circles are often the result of stress, an unhealthy diet or poor sleep, but can also be a side effect of the aging process.Dark undereye circles and the appearance of ‘hollowed’ eyes can be difficult to cover up with makeup alone, and only a handful of topical treatments can lighten up the skin under the eyes without causing damage to this delicate area.
Dr. Sam Assassa, a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon attempts to change that with an innovative treatment designed specifically for dark circles and hollow eyes.
His Hollow Eye Syndrome and advanced Dark Circle Treatment are non-invasive procedures that reduce the appearance of protruding lower lids and eliminate the ‘shadow’ that may be making the dark circles more prominent. He performs the procedure with the dermal filler Juvederm to fill out the depression between the cheeks and eyelids so that the skin appears smoother and more evenly toned.Since Juvederm stimulates collagen production, the weaker skin under the eyes becomes more resilient and begins to look healthier and stronger.
In a recent press release about the treatment, Dr. Assassa explains, "In my experience, patients coming in for a return treatment after their first year have under-eye depressions significantly shallower than they did previously."
This is an innovative approach for treating under-eye circles and darkened skin under the eyes, and may be the best option for men and women whohave tried skincare products or used makeup without getting any results.Touch-up treatments may be required every few months, because Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid and will be absorbed by the body within 4-6 months.
Patients can also improve their appearance by eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.While dark circles may take some time to disappear completely, treatments like Dr. Assassa’s Dark Circle Treatment may help speed up the process and restore the eye area to a more youthful state.
