What Are Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Dark circles under your eyes or periorbital dark circles are dark skin blemishes or skin discolorations beneath your eyelids. Dark circles are a result of skin thinning due to loss of elasticity and regenerative capabilities.

What Are The Causes Of Dark Circles?

There are several factors attributed to dark circles. These include:


Injuries, surgeries, bruising, or trauma around your eyes can lead to the formation of dark circles.


Dark circles below your eyes can be a result of a hereditary trait within your family that causes thin skin below your eyelids. In this case, dark circles appear early in childhood and might worsen with age.


Extreme fatigue, sleep deprivation, and oversleeping can cause your skin to become dull and pale leading to the formation of dark circles under your eyelids. Puffy eyes mostly accompany dark circles caused by fatigue.

Medical Conditions/ Diseases

Dark circles under your eyes can be as a result of underlying medical conditions. For example, during an allergic reaction to allergens, the body releases histamines which not only lead to reddening of skin and itchiness but also cause the dilation of blood vessels. The dilation of blood vessels under your eyelids causes dark circles. Other medical conditions that contribute to the formation of dark circles include insomnia, malnutrition, asthma, contact dermatitis, eczema, anemia, liver disease, and dehydration.


With age, your skin starts to thin due to the loss of fat and collagen. This makes the underlying blood vessels more conspicuous appearing as dark circles.

Sun Exposure

Too much exposure to the sun, especially to your eyes, leads to excess melanin production. This causes pigmentation in the skin underneath your eyelids, leading to the formation of dark circles.

Pigmentation Irregularities

Pigments irregularities mostly occur in dark-skinned people. The skin under the eyes undergoes hyperpigmentation or excessive melanin production, causing dark circles.


Apart from oversleeping and insomnia, other lifestyle factors can lead to the darkening of the skin surrounding your eyes. These include stress, medication, alcohol, and smoking.

Dark Circles Removal and Treatments Methods

The treatment method used in the removal of dark circles is different in each patient because it depends on the underlying cause. This is why it’s essential to consult with a skin care cosmetologist  before starting any treatment or removal procedures.

The light and the wavelength of the light used differ according to the complexion of each patient.
