What procedures can be done to correct dark circles consistently under eyes since birth?

Hello. I am 20 years old and I have always had very dark circles under my eyes. I am very pale and it always looks like never sleep, even though I sleep on average 9 hours a night. What procedures can be done and what are the costs to correct this. It is getting worse as I get older.

Some eye configurations predispose to dark circles under the eyes. For younger patients, certain hyaluronic acid fillers work very well at reducing this. In older patients with dark circles, cheek lift procedures, laser treatments and filler all may have a role in making the eyes look less tired.

Many people have dark circles under their eyes. Since you are fair skinned part of the problem may be that your eyelid skin is so thin that the small blood vessels are visible and causing a blue or purple color to the eyelid skin. If this is the case IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments may help.

Insist that eye shields be placed over the eyes for protection during treatment.
