Question: Question from Obakeng Molobi

Hi Dr. Maureen I am a 31 year old female. I have dark circles around my eyes and eye bags. Are there any products that you can recommend i use or any tips that i can use to minimize these issues?

Answer

Hello, thank you  for your question. There are many factors at play when it comes to dark circles and eye bags, we need to determine what is the cause first before we can take full action. These concerns can be caused by a lack of lymph drainage in the area, allergies or sensitivity, pigmentation, a lack of good quality sleep or genes. Topical products, such as  Neostrata Bionic eye cream, will help minimize these concerns and prevent them from becoming worse, but if you really want to tackle the concern I would recommend in clinic treatments. For the dark circles and bags (depending on its cause) we can do carboxtherapy which will help with circulation in the eye area. If the dark circles are due to pigmentation that formed around the eyes, we can do certain peels, such as Cosmelan, to minimize the appearance. For the eye bags, we can do a treatment called Cecarrelli, this will dissolve any abnormal fat pockets in the area. I would however recommend that you come in and have a consult with one of Skin Renewal’s Medical Doctors, so they can have a look at the area and find out the exact cause, in then in turn recommend the most suited treatment and homecare plan.
