Lasers are also effective as they reduce hyperpigmentation and stimulate the revival of skin tissues by targeting intense light and heat on the area of focus.

The type of laser treatments for dark circles we use is nonablative. Nonablative lasers make the skin firm by providing additional collagen production.  

Dark under-eye circles are usually caused by excess melanin or poor circulation underneath the eyes. Poor circulation under the eyes is the leading cause of dark circles. So, depending on the type of dark circles you have the laser is suited to cater to three different types of dark circles. There are pigmented dark circles, vascular dark circles, and mixed dark circles. In terms of candidates for laser treatments for dark circles, most people are able to get this treatment done. 

Preparing for your laser treatment 

In order to prepare for a laser treatment, you will talk with a skin care expert during your free consultation. A consultation is very important as you talk one on one with a skin care expert. During the consultation you should outline any worries or concerns you may have so you can go to your appointment worry free. Also, to understand if you require any recovery time after the treatment. Once you have picked the treatment plan for yourself your skin will be tested to see if you react or not. 

Are there any side effects?

After a nonablative laser treatment you can experience some minor redness, swelling and some heat in the area that can lead to itching, which are common to occur and will diminish in few hours. Clients can come in and do this on their lunch break, so that means no down time.  

If I don’t do a laser treatment for dark circles, what else can I do?

If you don’t want to get a laser treatment done, you can get a chemical peel done for dark circles. A chemical peel is an acidic chemical solution that can be applied to the face area to eliminate the surface area of the face which helps to address the excess pigmentation that can cause dark circles. Intense pulse light (IPL) is a phototherapeutic treatment that fixes vascular lesions making it a prime choice for people with pigmented dark circles.
