Sunken Tear Troughs or Dark Eye Circles?

Continually looking like you’ve been having sleepless nights and not quite enjoying it? Undereye concealers not quite doing their job? Panda eyes are the bane of many a woman’s existence.

But did you know these panda eyes could actually be caused by 2 things – either sunken tear troughs or dark eye circles? Or even both?

Telling them apart can sometimes be tricky, but we’ll help you break it down:

Sunken Tear Troughs
Tear troughs refer to the grooves between your lower eyelid and your cheek. These can create the illusion of dark circles around our eyes, making us look tired even when we’ve had enough sleep.

HOW NOW?
Fortunately, we can reduce the appearance of sunken tear troughs with hyaluronic acid fillers – this is a simple, non-surgical, 30-min procedure with close to no downtime. And as with most fillers, results can be seen immediately!


Dark Eye Circles
Dark eye circles can be caused by the darkening of your skin or the prominence of the blood vessels in your undereye area.

Try pushing slightly on your undereye area – if the darkness disappears, it means that our dark eye circles is most likely caused by the blood vessels under your skin, or it could be a shadow caused by sunken tear troughs or eye bags.

We all know too that the lack of sleep can contribute to the appearance of unwanted panda eyes, but other causes of dark eye circles include:

  • Genetics
    Unfortunately, dark eye circles can also be an inherited trait, and could have already appeared in your childhood years. Not to fret totally though, as some do outgrow their dark circles over time!

  • Allergies
    Nasal congestion due to allergies can sometimes dilate the blood vessels around your eye area, causing them to appear darker.

  • Alcohol
    Alcohol can dehydrate your skin, making the blood vessels around our undereye area more prominent. This is caused by excessive alcohol consumption though, so a glass or 2 of vino is still fine, but you might want to rethink the 3rd of 4th glass.

  • Bad habits!
    Are you a frequent eye-rubber? Constant eye rubbing, or other bad habits such as not putting sunscreen can cause hyperpigmentation, which causes the skin around your eye area to darken.


HOW NOW?
How then can we get rid of these eye woes?

Facials that are specially targeted to treat dark eye circles, such as our Dark Eye Rings facial, are great for brightening and lightening dark eye circles.

This involves the infusion of medical-grade serums with specialised machines, to allow the active ingredients to better penetrate your undereye area. This also hydrates your skin and improves blood circulation!

Laser treatments, such as our signature Eye 2 Laser treatment, have the effect of reducing blood vessel size and skin pigmentation, in turn reducing the appearance of dark eye circles. Such treatments are specially targeted for your undereye area.

Don’t fret though, we’re not going to zap your eyes! These are completely safe, and have no downtime. Feel free to wear makeup and resume your daily activities after!

3 Hacks To Reduce Puffy Eyes

Getting 8 hours of beauty sleep is the holy grail for fresh-looking eyes and I-woke-up-like-this skin, but we know real life (and maybe Netflix) tends to get in the way.

But with some good habits in place, we can always fool everyone into thinking we got our 8 hours of quality rest. Read on for some useful tips to reduce undereye puffiness:

Watch the salt
When you consume salt, your body holds on to water to maintain a balanced ratio. But when you over-consume salt, this results in fluid retention, that can result in puffy eyes.

To make the transition easier, try replacing salt with herbs to keep what you eat healthy yet flavourful!

Stay Hydrated!
Not drinking enough water can make your body store up water, which in turn – and ironically – leads to fluid retention.

So stay on top of your water intake – you can set reminders on your phone to remind yourself to hydrate or download water intake tracking apps such as Waterlogged or Fitbit.

Cut back on the booze
Alcohol lowers the level of anti-diuretic hormones – which tell your kidneys how much water to conserve – in your body. Your body then tries to compensate for this temporary dehydration by retaining fluid, resulting in unwanted puffy eyes.

Fortunately, this is temporary though, but if you do have an important social event or business meeting the next day, keep this in mind!

If your peepers still need an extra boost, try an eye cream containing peptides that works to reduce undereye puffiness.

Radiofrequency facials help too in reducing mild undereye puffiness and stimulating collagen production – and you might just get an extra hour of snooze during that 1 hour of treatment!

They often say the eyes are the window to the soul. And while having an old soul is great, who wouldn’t want young, fresh-looking eyes?

People often assume plastic surgery is required when it comes to reversing our age, especially when it comes to the eye area. But with various aesthetic treatments these days, you can lift sagging eyebrows and get rid of wrinkles and dark eye circles – all without surgery.

And the best part is, most of these treatments have no downtime! Feel free to wear makeup and resume your daily routine immediately after your treatment.

  1. Ultherapy
    Think of Ultherapy as a non-surgical face lift – this non-invasive U.S. FDA-approved aesthetic treatment uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin, while smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.

    When applied to the eye area, Ultherapy has the effect of reducing drooping eyebrows, firming up skin around the eye area, and stimulating collagen production.

  2. Laser Treatments
    Don’t worry! We’re not going to zap your eyes – laser treatments are completely safe. They work by sending pulses of light into your skin, and this has the effect of reducing blood vessel size and pigmentation – both of which could be the causes of your dark eye circles.

    Our signature Eye 2 Laser treatment specifically targets and treats dark eye rings, reducing the appearance of those unwanted panda eyes!

  3. Radiofrequency
    This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency waves, which when directed into your skin, helps to stimulate collagen production and clear up mild undereye puffiness.

  4. Anti-Wrinkle Injections
    Reduce the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines with anti-wrinkle injections. These injections work by temporarily reducing muscle contractions at the treatment area. This in turn allows the muscles around your eye to relax, and has the effect of reducing wrinkles around your eye area.

  5. Fillers for Sunken Tear Troughs
    Sunken tear troughs are caused by depressions under your eyes, and can create the illusion of dark eye circles, making your undereyes look darker than they really are.

    Luckily, this can be fixed without the need for surgery! Fillers are a safe alternative, and give natural results with minimal downtime.

Dark circles, fine lines, eye bags – or commonly also known as the bane of our existence. We’re sure we can safely say that most of us have tried many methods of getting rid of them: ranging from expensive night creams to the good ol’ cucumbers-on-your-eyes hack, but sometimes, we need just a little bit more to get rid of those tired eyes.

Eye Treatments for Dark Eye Circles, Fine Lines, Eye Bags | LS Aesthetic Clinic
Eye facials – or facial treatments specially for your eye area – are specially formulated to treat dark eye rings, fine lines, and mild eye bags while caring for the delicate skin around your eye. Depending on your problem or concern, there are different types of eye facials available:

  1. Dark Eye Rings Facial
    This involves the infusion of medical-grade serums with specialised machines, to allow the active ingredients to better penetrate your undereye area, brightening and lightening dark eye circles. This also hydrates your skin and improves blood circulation!

  3. Radiofrequency Eye Facial
    Radiofrequency, or RF for short, is a facial treatment that stimulates collagen production, lifts and tightens sagging skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. When applied to the undereye area, it has the effect of reducing mild eyebags or puffiness, as well as firming up the skin around your eyes.
