What are dark circles?

The most common complaint that we hear from people who suffer from dark circles is that they always ‘look tired’. Dark circles appear when the skin under your eyes is either of a darker shade or appears to be of a darker shade that the surrounding areas. Why we talk about ‘appearance’ of darkness is the fact that this also depends on how light rebounds off the skin.

Dark circles under the eyes are caused by:

  • Vascular changes under the eyes or increased blood vessels
  • Hyperpigmentation or the increased presence of melanin in the undereye area. This is also known as periorbital pigmentation.
  • Hollowness or loss of volume. This is where the light rebound comes into play. When there is a depression in the region, it may look dark although the actual skin tone may not be different from the surrounding areas.
  • Genetic reasons

Treatment for dark circles is required by people who suffer from one of the following indications:

  • Vascular changes under the eye, basically increase in blood vessels that may appear as dark blue change in coloration
  • Localized pigmentary changes under the eyes visible due to increased presence and concentration of melanin pigment. These appear as dark brown to black pigmentation.
  • Loss of connective tissue or genetic predisposition leading to hollow appearance under the eyes which reflects light in  a way that the region appears darker from the surroundings.

The treatment options: How they work

The treatment options involve mainly two methods.

  1. For pigmentary changes under the eyes, we use the Q-switch laser to treat the target areas. This laser emits very high energy pulsed beams which target the darker pigment cells. The excess melanin is broken down and then metabolized by the body, helping in reversion to the normal skin tone.
  2. For hollowness, we use dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are inert hyaluronic acid injectables that are injected in the target area. They basically fill up the hollow area under the skin, helping in the overall appearance.


For the Q-switch laser treatment, the procedure of treatment involves the following steps:

  • Enter the treatment room.
  • Clean-up of the face or any other targeted area, including removal of any creams, make-up.
  • Application of topical anaesthesia so that you do not feel the stinging sensation from the lasers.
  • Wear protective eye goggles for the treatment
  • Application of laser light to the target area.
  • Finish the session, go back home and follow the after care routine diligently.


  • After the procedure, avoid using any products not prescribed by the specialist or without checking with them.
  • Avoid make-up on the day of the treatment.
  • The most important after care requirement for all these procedures is to avoid sun exposure. Apart from simply using sunscreen, you may be suggested additional measures such as wearing a hat or sun glasses.


In case the treatment plan decided is to go ahead with dermal fillers to reduce the hollowness, the treatment duration is much shorter. It takes 15-30 minutes.

Steps include:

  • Application of numbing cream at the site of injection
  • Injection of the dermal filler product.

There is no specific after care required apart from the fact that you must avoid rubbing the area for the next 4 hours.

Risks and side effects

With Q-switch laser the possible side effects include:

  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or dark patches on the skin
  • Redness
  • Swelling

Redness and swelling are temporary and will last only for 2-3 hours.

With dermal fillers, the risk of side effects is even lower and is mostly related to the complications at the injection site including possible infection or bruising. These are much less likely to happen in a good setup with an experienced practitioner like you will find at SkinGenious.


The treatment is not recommended for the following candidates:

  • People with known history of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
