Dark circles are caused by poor blood circulation and one of the principal causes is genetics. Lifestyle habits can also be another cause. Some ethnic groups may also be more predisposed to dark circles under the eyes than others.
While it is difficult to eliminate the appearance of dark circles completely, there are now effective options to reduce dark circles, which can substantially improve their appearance in most people.

Dark circles under the eyes can have several causes, some of which we’ve mentioned above. Let’s take a look at each of these more closely.
Genetics: Dark circles can be hereditary and run in families.
Lifestyle: Lifestyle factors such as stress, smoking, and poor diet can contribute to the development of dark circles.
Ageing: As we age, the skin under the eyes becomes thinner, and blood vessels become more visible beneath this thin skin, leading to the appearance of dark circles.
Sun exposure: Sun damage to the skin can cause hyperpigmentation, leading to the appearance of dark circles.
Dark circles may also be caused by allergic reactions, which can make the blood vessels under the eyes swell and become more visible.
Dehydration can play a part in dark circles. When the body is dehydrated, the skin can become dull and appear to have dark circles.
People with medical conditions such as anaemia, thyroid problems or liver disease can cause dark circles under the eyes.
Lack of sleep or poor quality sleep can cause the skin to appear paler, making dark circles more noticeable.
At Dr Haus Dermatology in London, we offer several non-surgical eye treatments at our skin clinic. Our eye treatments can be effective not only for dark circles under the eyes but also for other issues in the eye area. These might include tired eyes, eyes with a puffy appearance, eye bags, puffy eyelids or eyes with deep tear troughs.
Eyes treatment options typically involve either using filler for restoring volume beneath the eyes, or a procedure that stimulates new collagen production in the eye region.
For dark circle treatment, we offer Carboxytherapy, Dermal Fillers London and MaiLi Filler at Dr Haus Dermatology in London to reduce the look of dark circles under the eyes. Read on to find out more about each procedure and how it works.
Injecting dermal fillers under the eyes can help fill in hollow areas and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Dark circles can appear as we age, due to lost collagen and elastin in the middle layers of the skin.
MaiLi filler is a premium dermal filler treatment that can help you with common age-related concerns, including volume loss in various areas of the face.
With MaiLi filler, our dermatologists can target key areas that have lost volume, and help redefine facial contours. The filler will soften fine lines and plump, smooth and better hydrate the face.
This injectable dermal filler treatment delivers a premium hyaluronic acid (HA) filler to the under-eye area, beneath the surface layer of the skin, for natural-looking results.
Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical treatment used to treat and improve the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and dark under-eye circles. Carboxytherapy uses infusions of carbon dioxide that are injected beneath the skin.
Laser therapy: Laser therapy can help stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of dark circles.
Chemical peels: Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of dark circles by removing the top layer of skin and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin.
We offer MaiLi premium dermal filler for its safe and effective reputation. Dr Haus is a key opinion leader for MaiLi dermal fillers and so has lots of experience working with the product.
Our experienced dermatologists apply MaiLi filler treatment precisely to affected areas. Once administered, this unique formulation, which is highly effective despite low dosage, works to subtly turn back the clock on ageing skin.
The use of premium hyaluronic acid in MaiLi filler treatments is proven to be more effective than using an artificial alternative to collagen. Hyaluronic acid fillers can help to restore the internal structure of the skin, rather than to replace the substances that have been lost.
With MaiLi fillers there is only mild discomfort during the procedure and minimal downtime.
