Although under-eye does not cause a vital health problem, the aesthetic concerns it creates cause nightmares for many people. Near East University Hospital Skin and Venereal Diseases Specialist Dr. Serap Maden says that it is possible to get rid of this problem, which occurs especially at advanced ages, through applying methods such as mesotherapy, youth vaccination and light filling.
Dark circles and bags under the eyes can be bothersome for many people as they are common cosmetic problems that occur along with age. Factors such as disturbed sleep patterns, the habit of looking at television, computer, tablet, phone screen for a long time, smoking and alcohol consumption, inadequate and unbalanced nutrition, insufficient water drinking habits cause dark circles and bags under the eyes to form or become more pronounced.
Near East University Hospital Skin and Venereal Diseases Specialist Dr. Serap Maden says that excessive exposure to the sun can also cause a dark appearance under the eyes by stimulating the increase in melanin. While explaining the reasons for this problem, Dr. Serap Maden said, “Another reason for under-eye bags and dark circles is the lack of circulation in that area. Especially the circulatory insufficiency in the vein structures leads to the emergence of this situation. Under-eye dark circles and bags are closely related to aging. The loss of connective tissue over time causes the formation of dark circles under eyes. At the same time, as a result of the deformation of the fat tissue due to gravity and the regression of the bone structure, bags and dark circles occur under the eyes.
It is possible to avoid!
So, how can we get rid of this annoying problem? Dr. Serap Maden points out that regular sleep, natural nutrition and drinking plenty of water, staying away from smoking and alcohol, which cause rapid aging of the skin, not only adds health to the whole skin, but also contributes to the reduction of dark circles and bags under the eyes. Dr. Maden said, “Moisturizing the under-eye area regularly with a suitable moisturizer will also reduce dark circles. There are various cosmetic methods that can be applied under the eyes, both simple and effective, in order to reduce the genetically possessed dark circles and to take precautions against the wearing down negative effects of time.
The most effective cosmetic methods: Mesotherapy, youth vaccine and light filling
Mesotherapy is one of these cosmetic methods. Dr. Serap Maden says "The mesotherapy application is one of the effective cosmetic procedures used to reduce bruises and bags under the eyes. Serums containing nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids are injected under the skin with very fine-tipped injectors under the eyes." Dr. Maden explains the results of the application, “In this way, the skin is moisturized, nourished and the skin gains radiance. It is possible to get effective results with an application of 4-6 sessions at intervals of 7-10 days. It can be repeated after six months, depending on the person's needs.
Dr. Another application that Serap Maden draws attention to is called youth vaccination. "Youth vaccines containing hyaluronic acid and polyvitamins increase the connective tissue support of the skin and bring vitality, firmness and shine to the skin. As in mesotherapy, youth vaccines are injected into the skin area under the eyes with very fine-tipped injectors. It is possible to see significant positive developments after 3 sessions in this application, which is performed at intervals of 3-4 weeks on average. The average number of sessions is determined according to the needs of the person.”
Another method that corrects under-eye dark circles is under-eye light fillings. Dr. Serap Maden said, “In this method, a filling material containing hyaluronic acid, which is injected to a specific depth under the eye, is used. In this application, the content of hyaluronic acid is more intense and the duration of action is longer. It can be repeated at intervals of 9 months - 1 year according to the needs of the person. Under-eye light filler shows its effect immediately after application.
Dermatology Specialist Dr. Serap Maden, on the other hand, warns that these cosmetic methods may be insufficient, especially in cases of under-eye bags that become more evident in advanced ages. Dr. Maden says, "After examination by the doctor, surgical lower eyelid aesthetics can be applied when necessary."
