What are dark circles?

Dark circles are depressions or hollows that are located under the eyes and can, depending on their importance, give an aged, tired or sick appearance to the face.
The distinction between the different types of dark circles is essential in determining the therapeutic approach.

Dark circles are the most frequently found and follow the loss of volume under the eyes: muscle wasting and fat loss are often associated in this case. A localized excess of pigmentation is at the origin of colored circles which take on a brown or brown color. Significant transparency of the skin will accentuate the visibility of blood vessels under the eyes and cause blue circles .

In addition, lifestyle plays a major role in the development of dark circles: insufficient hydration, lack of sleep, smoking, pollution, etc.

When to inject hyaluronic acid to fill dark circles?

Dark circles are the ideal indication for treatment with hyaluronic acid. This filler makes it possible to compensate for the loss of volume at this level.

At eye level, the skin is extremely thin and therefore fragile, hence the need to inject little by little so as not to over-correct the hollowness and to obtain a harmonious result.

How is a hyaluronic acid injection for dark circles performed at Skin Marceau?

At Skin Marceau, our team of dermatologists uses a very low cross-linked hyaluronic acid from the Juvéderm range from Allergan laboratories, the world leader in medical aesthetics. Hyaluronic acid suitable for dark circles is not very hydrophilic and does not volumize, so it does not cause reaction swelling.

The first stage of the treatment always begins with a consultation with your dermatologist: following an interview and a complete examination of your face, it will be possible to determine whether the injection of hyaluronic acid meets your needs.

The injection takes a few minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis. Depending on your request, it is quite possible to combine other injections in the face based on the MD CODES technique , in which the dermatologists at Skin Marceau are trained. For example, the filling of nasolabial folds in combination with the treatment of dark circles will rejuvenate the entire face.

But still, BotoxⓇ injections in the area of ​​crow’s feet wrinkles help to refresh the look and thus act optimally with the effects of hyaluronic acid .

Filling dark circles with hyaluronic acid, is it painful?

Most patients experience only mild discomfort during the treatment. However, numbing creams can be applied to the treated area before the injection to reduce any potential pain.

Following the injection session , it is possible to feel a slight pain and notice the appearance of oedema, but these signs disappear fairly quickly.

The risk of bruising is almost non-existent when using very fine micro-cannulas adapted to the delicacy of the gaze area .

What results can you expect after acid injections to fill dark circles?

The treatment of dark circles with hyaluronic acid is a gentle, non-invasive gesture. No social eviction is necessary, you can resume your daily activities directly after your treatment.

The results of the treatment generally last between 12 to 18 months, and this depends on each patient. A significant reduction in the appearance of dark circles is observed, the look is refreshed, the face rested . Thanks to the moisturizing properties of hyaluronic acid, the quality of the skin is improved.
