Fractional lasers

Fractional lasers only treat a portion of the skin at a time, stimulating the body’s healing process to rejuvenate the skin with minimal downtime. With increased collagen production, these lasers can help tighten the skin under the eyes, improve volume, and reduce unwanted pigmentation.

Fraxel® DUAL

Fraxel DUAL smooths wrinkles, lightens pigmentation, and creates healthier skin under the eyes. The results are visible as the skin heals. Treatments often take less than 30 minutes to one hour, and results continue to improve over the next 2-3 months.

Erbium YAG

The Erbium YAG precisely resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin. The treatment results in refreshed skin under the eyes, visibly reducing lines and hyperpigmentation. Lighter sessions only take a few days to heal, while more intense laser treatments for dark circles may require longer recovery periods.

With several different types of laser devices available, you must consult with a board-certified dermatologist who can determine the best type of laser therapy for dark circles tailored to your skin type, condition, and goals.

Questions and Answers

Q: Can lasers treat severe or stubborn dark circles?

A: Yes, lasers can improve the appearance of stubborn dark circles. Our board-certified dermatologists can choose the best dark circle laser treatment to meet your needs and calibrate the device to enhance your treatment.

They may combine various lasers for under-eye treatment or integrate HA dermal fillers into your treatment plan for ideal results.

Q: When should I consider seeking medical advice for my dark circles?

A: Consult with your dermatologist if dark circles and swelling persist, get worse over time, or appear under just one eye.

Q: Am I a candidate for under-eye dark circle treatment?

A: Lasers for dark under-eye circles have minimal side effects and are ideal for many individuals who want to rejuvenate their eyes without surgery. Consulting with a qualified and experienced dermatologist is the only way to ensure you’re a good candidate for under-eye laser treatment.

Q: Are there any effective home remedies for treating dark circles?

A: Home remedies typically aren’t enough to target dark circles from aging or genetics, but they can help prevent or treat temporary pigmentation. Tips to care for the skin under your eyes include:

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Use creams and moisturizers containing retinol to lessen the effects of aging, including dark under-eye circles.
  • Avoid sun exposure and always wear sunscreen to prevent sun damage, which can worsen dark under-eye circles.
  • Use ice, cold rollers, and chilled tea bags to soothe the eyes and reduce puffiness under the eyes.

Q: Do eye creams effectively treat dark circles?

A: Thoroughly addressing dark circles requires under-eye laser procedures and dermatologist-approved treatments, like dermal fillers. Good eye cream formulas only minimally lighten your dark circles and reduce wrinkles.

Q: Can dark circles be permanent?

A: Aging and collagen loss cause dark circles to become more visible and permanent over time, but they can improve with medical intervention. Persistent or severe cases may require ongoing dark-circle laser treatments.
