A common reason for dark under eye circles is deformity of the tear trough. This deformity is a depression under the eyes which is often perceived as a skin discoloration. In reality, the dark discoloration of the circles is often increased by a pronounced tear trough under the eye. The tear trough deflects light thus creating a shadow and visible increase of dark under eye circles and discoloration.
The reason for appearance of the tear trough deformity is somewhat complex and usually has many factors involved: such as genetics, skin aging and anatomy of the area under the eye. Until recently doctors didn’t have many options in improving tear trough deformity. Surgical options involve major interventions with prolonged down time and potential side effects. This is why most patients had to settle for living with dark circles under their eyes, giving them a chronically tired appearance.
Recent developments in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures have made it possible to greatly reduce dark under eye circles which are caused by the tear trough deformity.
