Dark Under-Eye Circles/Hollows

La Fontaine Aesthetics in Cherry Creek, Denver, Colorado

The dark circles are caused by several factors. First, the skin is very thin under the eyes and blood capillaries are easily seen through the skin. The second factor is volume loss and the sagging of the face. This creates a semi-circular ridge that catches the light and appears as a shadow, thus worsening the dark circle appearance or the hollowed under eye appearance.

Retinoid creams (Retin-A) and creams with skin growth factors are used to thicken the skin, thus diminishing the capillaries seen through the skin. Using Restylane to fill in the hollow under the eye is often a "home run" treatment, with dramatic and instant improvement to that sunken appearance. This treatment has been featured on Oprah and has been one of Dr. Oleszek’s most popular "wow" treatments.
