Under Eye Treatment

The Under Eye area is an important part of the face when it comes to having a fresh, youthful appearance as it is one of the first areas on the body that show significant signs of ageing . Dark circles and bags on the lower eyelids appear with age and make us look older than we really are and make some people more insecure than with the appearance of wrinkles. The main reason for the formation of dark circles is due to the blood vessels under the eyelid losing stability and strength.

There can be many other factors that contribute to the formation of dark circles. Fatigue, vitamin deficiency, hyper pigmentation, allergies, medical conditions or even something as natural as ageing can lead to dark circles. One of the most common factors or cause of dark circles can also be heredity.

With repeated procedures the depth of the wrinkles is reduced, the amount of collagen is increased and therefore the skin tone is improved.
