While treating dark circles, the first thing to understand is that they aren’t a serious health concern. However, dark circles always are a bad element for your appearance. There are two ways they can be treated- naturally and medically prescribed. It is very important to maintain consistency in the treatment for the best results.
What causes dark circles?
Every individual has a different skin type and dark circles can appear due to different reasons, including but not limited to:
- Sun exposure
The aging process plays a significant role too as the skin loses fat and collagen as we age.
So, what’s the treatment?
Depending upon the cause for dark circles, there are different treatments I prescribe to individuals. If it is stress, a good night’s sleep with nutrition and meditation proves helpful. I also recommend minimizing sun exposure as it is a primary cause. Some additional treatment options include:
- Cold compresses
- Vitamin K and E therapy
If the problem is more intense, it is recommended to undergo medically prescribed treatments. The options are:
- Skin lightening creams
- Laser Therapy
- Chemical Peels
A consultation would allow us to have a better picture and prescribe the best treatment.
