Periorbital Dark Circles - Adelaide

PERIORBITAL DARK CIRCLES

Periorbital dark circles (also known as dark circles) are dark blemishes around the eyes. There are many causes of this symptom, including heredity and bruising.

Frequently Asked Questions

Allergies, asthma, and eczema

 

Any condition that causes the eyes to itch can contribute to darker circles due to rubbing or scratching the skin around them. Hay fever sufferers, in particular, will notice under-eye “smudges” during the height of the allergy season. Some food allergies can also cause the area under the eyes to appear darker.

 

Medications

 

Any medications that cause blood vessels to dilate can cause circles under the eyes to darken. Because the skin under the eyes is very delicate, any increased blood flow shows through the skin.

 

Anemia

 

The lack of nutrients in the diet, or the lack of a balanced diet, can contribute to the discolouration of the area under the eyes. It is believed that iron deficiency can cause dark circles as well. Iron deficiency is the most common type of anaemia and this condition is a sign that not enough oxygen is getting to the body tissues.

The skin can also become paler during pregnancy and menstruation (due to lack of iron), allowing the underlying veins under the eyes to become more visible.

 

Fatigue

 

A lack of sleep can cause paleness of the skin, allowing the blood underneath the skin to become more visible and appear bluer or darker.

 

Age

 

Dark circles are likely to become more noticeable and permanent with age. This is because as people get older, their skin loses collagen, becoming thinner and more translucent. Circles may also gradually begin to appear darker in one eye than the other as a result of some habitual facial expressions, such as an uneven smile.  Age-related causes of periorbital dark circles may be successfully treated with cosmetic dermal fillers.

 

Periorbital Hyperpigmentation

 

Periorbital hyperpigmentation is the official name for when there is more melanin produced around the eyes than is usual, giving them a darker colour.
