The bruising, darkness and aging around the eyes is one of the most emphasized issues today. The first contact area in face-to-face communication is the eye and its surroundings. The first eye area gives people a lively, calm, young and elastic look. If we remind the importance of the first seconds in communication, we can better understand how valuable the first communication tools are.
The area around the eyes is the area that enters the earliest aging process on our face. From the 20s onwards, very fine lines formed by facial expressions begin to appear, and in later ages, depending on genetics and the lifestyle of the person, deepening of the lines around the eyes, excess skin and an increase in bags can be seen.
Dark circles under the eyes occur why?
It is unusual if you have dark circles under your eyes, even in the morning, despite getting your sleep. Fatigue or insomnia is not the only reason for dark circles under the eyes. Dark circles under the eyes can occur for various reasons.
With advancing age, the loss of fat, muscle and bone, which is observed in all parts of the body in general, shows itself much more quickly and more clearly around the eyes. The thinning fat layer as a natural result of tissue loss during the aging process can trigger dark circles under the eyes.
Another reason is that the skin around the eyes tends to darken with genetic inheritance. The skin tissue surrounding the eyelids is the area of our body with the thinnest skin. For example, there is a skin thickness of 2 mm in other areas, while the skin around the eyes is only about 0.5 mm thick. Blood passing under the skin has a red hue, but since the skin around the eyes is thin, the red color is absorbed by the light and is reflected in a bluish tone. The reflection of the blood passing through the vessels near the surface with a bluish tint results in a purple and bluish encirclement of the already genetically thinner eye area. In addition, this kind of thinness problem is considered as one of the reasons for under-eye bags in advanced ages.
Nasal congestion can also cause discoloration in the skin tissue of this extremely sensitive area.
We also know that chronic kidney diseases, smoking, alcohol, unhealthy diet and an allergy under the lower eyelid also cause dark circles under the eyes.
We can list the causes of under-eye bruises as follows:
Environmental problems (the habit of rubbing around the eyes),
. Loss of volume in the cheeks
• Lack of adipose tissue around the eyes
• Looseness in the lower eyelid
• Thinning of the under-eye skin
• Smoking and alcohol use
• Hyperpigmentation due to sun damage
• Excessive coffee and tea consumption
. Standing in front of the screen for a long time
• Insomnia or inability to get quality sleep
• Nasal congestion
• Medical reasons such as eczema, thyroid
• Venous congestion in eye blood vessels
Our eyes are one of our most important organs and are very sensitive due to their location. For this reason, the first step in the treatment of bruises around your eyes is to meet with the right doctor.
After explaining the causes and the treatment to the patient in detail, for example, if the bruise is only due to the pit; Good results are obtained with the light filling to be made. If there is both structural color darkness and dimples, treatments to improve the color of the upper skin and under-eye light filling are applied. Of course, bruises under the eyes that appear suddenly can be a sign of anemia. Our first treatment should always be to eliminate the cause. Providing a good sleep pattern, a balanced diet, protection from the sun, not staying in front of the TV and computer for a long time, providing a rest for the eyes, cold compresses, and the use of organic foods such as cucumbers for soothing the skin are among the treatments we can do.
Some bruises can be healed with one session of filling application. Some bruises also need laser, peeling and thin filling applications before filling, which takes a little longer to heal. The cause of some bruises can be attributed to another disease of our patient, but progress is made with the treatment of that disease.
Your dermatologist analyzes the type of your bruise by examination and provides serious satisfaction when correct treatment is performed. After all; There is a look that will make you happy compared to the old one. It is the duty of an experienced dermatologist to show you the way and help you.
