Which laser is best for dark circles?

Swelling under your eyes, especially in the form of blackish circles, makes you look tired and old. There is usually a lot of pressure for women to keep the skin around the eyes free of the dark circles hence you may have used creams or procedures around that area. Unfortunately, dark circles under the eyes are caused by blood vessels that grow more visible when skin thins with age. Fractional CO2 laser therapy for dark circles beneath your eyes will make you seem younger and refreshed!

Lasers improve skin texture through a “heat and heal” cycle. Laser beams damage cells by heating the skin. This damage is done to stimulate collagen production during skin repair. Collagen improves skin health and smoothness.

What causes their under-eye black circles?

Puffiness and dark circles around the eyes give the impression of being ill, and one is unpleasantly surprised to see one.

  • However, there are other causes of black eye ringing, which are mostly due to exhaustion.
  • Eczema, dermatitis, sun exposure, allergies, or hay fever can cause itching or rubbing, which forms dark circles. 
  • Also, dark circles under the eyes may be inherited. 
  • You may appear fatigued or need rest if you have dark circles under your corners. Indeed, poor sleep or leisure is a major cause of dark circles under the eyes. Normal aging, which thins and loses elasticity, can also develop dark circles under the eyes. Thinner, less pliable skin may highlight the blood vessels behind your eyes. 
  • Additionally, as people age, they lose fat and collagen in their faces, which can cause dark undereye circles and a sunken appearance.

Preparing for Laser Treatment

These non-surgical procedures effectively reduce dark circles beneath the eyes, but multiple treatments are usually needed. Surgery may be required to remove significant eye bags. 

  • A skilled doctor will consult with you before the procedure. During this discussion, they will review your treatment and the pros and cons of your various alternatives. 
  • You should discuss any issues during this appointment to ensure that you are comfortable with the treatment process and understand your recovery.
  • A spot test is performed after you choose a treatment plan to determine how your skin reacts and if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
  • It is crucial to follow your doctor’s instructions before therapy. Sunburned patients should avoid the sun for at least a week before therapy, as they risk laser skin damage.

What to Expect During Procedure 

  • Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment areas to ensure your comfort. 
  • Afterward, a dermatologist or licensed technician will place a wand-like device beneath your eyes to begin therapy. Short bursts of treatment target one specific location. 
  • This quarter-sized area may get red or irritated, but it should heal quickly.  Next, this technique is done across the treatment region. 
  • The complete process usually takes one hour per day. 

Results And Recovery:

After treatment, you should receive self-care instructions. Follow these directions regularly to avoid issues. Recovery after laser treatments is usually quick. Note that laser therapy recovery times vary.

Ablative lasers create more side effects and take longer to recover than non ablative lasers. They remove the uppermost layer of skin, while non ablative treatments penetrate the epidermis to target deeper tissue. Ablative laser operations usually take a few days off work to recover. Depending on the degree of the treatment, swelling, itching, and redness may last three days or longer. 

Recovery from non ablative laser procedures may take a few hours. However, patients can resume their normal activities immediately after surgery.

What Should You Do After Laser Treatment?

Use sunscreen

Before any light-based procedure, such as Laser Skin Rejuvenation or Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation, you should apply sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher that protects against UVA and UVB radiation. For the first few days after therapy, avoid the sun.

Apply a cold compress

Laser treatments often cause redness and edema. Edema and redness can be reduced with cold compresses and ice packs. They also soothe irritated skin.

Do makeup

Sometimes the skin is “raw, red, and occasionally swollen.” For these instances, wait a day or two before applying makeup. Except than that, laser or intense pulsed light procedures are simple, non-invasive, and need little recovery time. The process shouldn’t cause any problems if done properly.
