WELCOME TO Dr. Showrya Gadde Dark Circles

Dark circles, those pesky areas of darkened or discolored skin around or beneath the eyes, can give you the appearance of black, blue, or dark brown shadows. Many of us have experienced the frustration of tired-looking eyes with prominent dark circles.

These dark circles can be a natural part of the aging process, but they can also be caused by a range of other factors, including:

  • Nutritional deficiencies, such as anemia, iron deficiency, or thyroid issues.
  • Periorbital Edema, which occurs when fluid accumulates under the eyes.
  • Prominent vasculature, which happens when the skin covering the area becomes thinner.
  • Acanthosis Nigricans, often associated with hormonal imbalances or metabolic disorders.
  • Tear trough depression, where the eyes appear sunken due to fat loss.
  • Allergies, which can lead to under-eye skin thickening and hyperpigmentation.
  • Hereditary factors, with a family history of under-eye pigmentation.
  • To address dark circles effectively, it's essential to understand their specific cause. A detailed history and examination are crucial in determining the underlying reasons, enabling us to create a tailored treatment plan.

Options to address under-eye pigmentation include chemical peels to lighten the area, laser therapy using heat energy to target damaged cells, and fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, which can be injected beneath the eye to address volume loss, a common root cause of dark circles.
