Treatment for Dark Circles Under the Eyes

A common concern for a lot of people is dark circles under the eyes. There are many causes of these including volume loss, sun damage, genetics, lack of sleep, and others. We are born with a fat pad directly under the eye. Over time, due to gravity and changes in the skin, this pad descends downward toward the cheek. This leads to volume loss under the eyes which can lead to a shadow effect appearing as dark circles. Restylane is the perfect dermal filler to correct volume loss under the eyes. The advantage is that, unlike other fillers such as Juvederm, it does not lead to excess puffiness in the area. Results typically last anywhere from six to 15 months. The amount used varies from person to person. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not be treated. Contact Dr. Alex (818-835-1833 for a free consultation.
