Rejuvenating The Under Eyes

Today, I’m diving deep into one of the most talked-about topics in skincare: under eye rejuvenation. As a dermatologist specializing in aesthetics, I see firsthand how the under eye area can be a major concern for many of my patients. 

In this step-by-step guide, I’ll walk you through everything you need to know about combating under eye bags, tear troughs, dark circles, fine lines, and more.

Understanding the Under Eye Area

Let’s start by unpacking why the under eye area tends to show signs of aging first.  

Whether it’s genetics or the natural aging process, there are several changes that can occur under the eyes, including volume loss, thinning skin, and visible blood vessels.  Each person is unique, so it’s essential to recognize the specific issues you’re facing before seeking treatment.

Common Changes and Treatment Options

Volume Loss and Tear Troughs: 

When it comes to addressing volume loss or tear troughs, filler injections might come to mind. While fillers can be effective for some, they’re not always the best solution. 

Instead, treatments like PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin), or Easy Gel can offer rejuvenation without the risk of overfilling or distortion.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles: 

Collagen loss and decreased elasticity contribute to fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes. 

Instead of relying solely on filler injections, treatments like laser resurfacing or thermofax can stimulate collagen production for long-term results.

Dark Circles: 

Visible blood vessels and thinning skin can cause dark circles under the eyes. 

VBeam laser treatments are highly effective in reducing discoloration and brightening the under eye area.

Other Under Eye Treatments

Easy Gel: 

This innovative treatment combines platelet-rich plasma with a bio-stimulatory component to stimulate collagen and elastin production. 

While filler injections may last 2-3 years, Easy Gel offers a safer alternative with results lasting 3-6 months.


Botox or Dysport injections can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes. 

However, these treatments require advanced injection techniques and should only be performed by experienced professionals.

Peels and Laser Resurfacing: 

From TCA peels to CO2 laser resurfacing, these treatments offer next-level results in rejuvenating the under eye area. Combining peels with laser treatments can further enhance collagen production and skin texture.

At-Home Care Tips

While professional treatments are effective, there are also steps you can take at home to maintain under eye health. Look for eye serums containing active ingredients like niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and caffeine to reduce puffiness and dark circles. Of course I love and recommend our #1 selling Regenerative ECM Eye Complex from MDAIRE. 


What to Avoid

Be cautious of DIY treatments like micro needling under the eyes, as they can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Additionally, darker skin tones should seek professional guidance when considering laser treatments to avoid pigmentary alterations.

Final Thoughts

Remember, under eye rejuvenation is not one-size-fits-all. By understanding your specific concerns and exploring a combination of treatments, you can achieve your desired results safely and effectively.  

Don’t hesitate to consult with a qualified professional to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
