Dark circles are one of the most common face conditions, making people appear tired or aged. They are caused by a range of factors, including lack of sleep, genetics, allergies, thinning skin, overexposure to sunlight, smoking and more.
While dark circles are not usually a medical cause for concern, you may wish to get rid of your dark circles for cosmetic reasons. If so, you might consider using Botox treatment and in this article, we’ll answer the question of does Botox help with dark circles?
Botox For Dark Circles Defined
During Botox treatment for dark circles, botulinum toxin is injected into the under-eye area. The toxin freezes this part of the face and is most often used to smooth out wrinkles and add a plumper appearance.
It’s important to note that Botox alone doesn’t reduce dark circles and we wouldn’t recommend it as a standalone treatment. Instead, we suggest pairing it with other treatments to transform how you look.
What Dark Circle Treatments Should Be Paired With Botox?
Under eye dermal fillers are a good complementary treatment because of how they uplift the skin and reduce signs of ageing and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is injected beneath the eyes and as a natural substance in the body, it promotes collagen growth and skin regeneration.
With fast results and low recovery time, dermal filler is an ideal dark circle treatment.
Cosmetic Dark Circle Products
Using specialised cosmetic products can also be worth pairing with Botox treatment. This might involve using eye creams like Skinceuticals A.G.E. eye complex, which reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles and puffiness.
You may also want to try Dr Levy’s eye booster concentrate. Created to rejuvenate the under-eye area, this product contains retinol, hyaluronic acid, peptides and other healthy vitamins.
Another dark circle cosmetic product is Zo Skin Health’s intense eye crème, which contains advanced peptides for boosting skin health and overall texture.
If you’re unsure of which products to use, seek professional help and our team of specialists are on hand to help.
Another alternative for treating dark circles is to use radiofrequency skin tightening. A non-invasive treatment, radiofrequency could be used to target sagging skin beneath the eyes.
The energy produced supercharges collagen and elastin growth to promote healthier, brighter skin.
