The chemical peel acts on the upper layer of the skin to cause exfoliation. Hence it increases the cell turnover rate to reduce pigmentation and assist in the formation of new skin. 

  • Microdermabrasion (MDA)

Microdermabrasion, it is also known as skin polishing treatment. In this treatment option, we use a rough-tip probe (diamond tip) along with a vacuum to lightly exfoliate the upper layer of the skin giving a smoother appearance.

  • Electroporation


Electroporation is the treatment that is used to increase the penetration of a drug/serum or even moisturizer applied over the skin, this is done by passing a slight current through the skin.

  • Fillers for under eye dark circle

Fillers (hyaluronic acid-based) will plump up the sunken under eye and its result may last for a year or one and a half years. It can be used to treat eye bags, by raising the skin that counteracts the sagginess.

Some laser treatments are also used to remove dark circles permanently including Q Switch Lasers, C02 Lasers, Endymed & I Fine and RF Patches.

It isn’t too hard to reduce the formation of dark circles under your eyes. For those who have a genetic predisposition for dark circles, only cosmetic treatments can help reduce the occurrence. 

However, for those who have dark circles due to years of eye strain, stress, nutritional deficiency or other reasons, a proper diet with adequate fruits and water and some sleep can help restore the condition of the eyes.
