Dark circles, bags and loose skin in the periocular contour

With the occurrence of dark circles and bags under the eyes, we look tired, ill or older than our real age.

The team of experienced dermatologists at the Derma-Act clinics can solve this problem using innovative methods completely safely and effectively, without surgical intervention.


What are dark circles under the eyes?

Dark circles are a darker tone of the skin in the area under the eyes and occasionally on the upper eyelids. The skin in these regions is significantly thinner and blood vessels are transparent, giving the skin a violet shade. Dark circles are significantly more emphasized in people with paler skin and deep-set eyes.

About 50% of women suffer from dark circles under the eyes, which places the problem in the top 5 of undesired skin imperfections. Dark circles differ from bags under eyes. Bags are a swelling in the area of the upper eyelids caused by the loosening of fats under eyes or fluid retention.

What are the causes for the occurrence of dark circles under eyes?

We often say that the lack of sufficient sleep leads to the occurrence of dark circles. However, there are a number of other reasons due to which people suffer from this problem. Dark circles may be caused by genetic predisposition, may be associated with obesity, endocrine gland diseases, allergic problems or dermatitis resulting from of incorrect use of cosmetics.

The main causes of the occurrence of dark circles under the eyes are as follows:

Aging: The skin around eyes is very thin. With aging, the elastin and collagen required for the maintenance of skin elasticity decrease. Thus, the skin becomes thinner and the dark blood vessels under it become more visible. Besides, the loss of collagen combined with the loss of bone mass also create depressions under the eyes. As a result, the area that once had its full volume now looks hollow and darkened.

Exposure to sunlight: When exposed to sunlight, the skin produces an increased amount of melanin. This is especially relevant for the area around the eyes.

Fatigue: The lack of sleep or excessive fatigue may cause dilatation of blood vessels under the eyes, causing darkening and dark circles.

Allergies: Allergies cause the release of histamines which are responsible for the accumulation of fluid in the area around the eyes, the occurrence of swelling and darkening of blood vessels.

Heredity: If your parents have dark circles under their eyes, it is very probable that you will inherit them.

Smoking: Smoking accelerates aging since it decomposes collagen and elastin. If you are a smoker, then the thin tissue around your eyes is “obliterated” more quickly. It makes the blood vessels under your eyes more visible.


You probably know how difficult is to “obliterate” dark circles and bags under the eyes. Until recently, their treatment was considered impossible, but nowadays this is not true at all. The specialized medical team at the Derma-Act clinics is capable of employing modern methods by which the rejuvenation of the delicate skin under the eyes giving it a fresh and shining appearance, is achieved. For treatment of dark circles, bags and loose skin in the periocular zone, we offer a combination of procedures to achieve an optimal result.
