What causes dark circles and bags under eyes?

There are several contributing factors for dark circles. Some common causes of include:

Fatigue – or sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show. Lack of sleep can also cause fluid to build underneath your eyes, causing them to appear puffy. As a result, the dark circles you see may actually be shadows cast by your puffy eyes.

Age- Natural aging is another common cause of those dark circles and bags beneath your eyes.

Genetics – It can be an inherited trait. Predispositions to other medical conditions can also result in dark circles beneath your eyes.

Eye strain – Staring at your television or computer screen can cause significant strain on your eyes.

Allergies – allergic reaction and can trigger dark circles. When you have an allergic reaction, your body release histamines as a response to harmful bacteria. Other than causing uncomfortable symptoms — including itchiness, redness, and puffy eyes — histamines also cause your blood vessels to dilate and become more visible beneath your skin.

Dehydration- dehydrated eyes is a common cause of dark circles.

Sun overexposure – Overexposure to the sun can cause your body to produce an excess of melanin, the pigment that provides your skin with color. Too much sun — particularly for your eyes — can cause pigmentation in the surrounding skin to darken.

During my early twenties I suffered from a horrible outbreak of cystic acne. Most of it consisted around my jawline, cheeks and temples. It hasn’t been until recently I started noticing that the scars left behind were getting increasingly noticeable.. particularly around my temples and the skin seemed to look “sunken” in. Part of it is due to aging and the other losing weight. The worst part that I felt was makeup made it look worse as after a few hours it would sink in and enhance them further. After my first fractional I noticed a minor improvement -lightening of these scars in terms of colour and only a mild softening. After my second fractional I noticed more smoother scaring however wanted to see more of a change with the skin around my temples..the change I could only see with pictures.
I recently just had my third fractional and there is a huge difference! The scars are much lighter and look less hollow..the ones around my temples finally seem to be leveling out and overall my complexion is more brighter and even!
Thank you. My skin B4 l came for the treatment was very pigmented and dark spots around my lips. After the treatment of microdermabrasion and fractional my skin looks great. My scars are light, the dark spots are diminishing slowly. I got so many compliments from my co-workers on how great my skin looks. I’m so glad l decided to go for the treatment. Thanks Redeem staff for making me look young and beautiful. They are great and very friendly. I will recommend them to all my friends and family.
