What causes it?

The main causes responsible for the discoloration on the eyecup may be sinking, vascular transparency or melanin pigmentation.

How does it manifest?

Dark circles cause a more tired and aged look, with a darkening of the skin under the eyes.

How can it be corrected?

A good exploration of the eyecup is essential to determine the causes of discoloration, sagging, melanin pigmentation or vascular transparency to enable us to define the appropriate treatment.

The eyecup is an area with a very thin, delicate skin, we recommend that it should be treated by oculoplastic specialists.

One of the treatments to correct the eyecup is solving the default volume with Restylane, lipostructure or by surgical techniques such as lower eyelid fat transposition (we use the eyelid’s own fat to correct the patient’s depth that comes with age). These techniques allow us to improve the contour eyelid-cheek getting a harmonious rejuvenation of the lower eyelid and the correction of the eyecup.

When the eyecup is secondary to hyper-pigmentation we will treat it with topical depigmenting agents at a skin level under medical supervision.
