Dark circles are a common skin condition that appears as darkened, pigmented skin under the eyes. Dark circles are sometimes caused by genetics, age, fatigue, or allergies and can be exacerbated by overexposure to the sun, smoking, or a poor diet. They can also be a sign of poor sleep habits or a nutritional deficiency. Treatments for dark circles include topical creams, laser treatments, and home remedies.
Even though dark circles are typically not a medical problem, you might want to get rid of them for aesthetic reasons. If so, you might think about undergoing a Botox procedure. In this post, we’ll address the subject of whether Botox can reduce dark circles.
Botulinum toxin is injected under the eyes during a Botox treatment for dark circles. This area of the face is frozen by the toxin, which is frequently used to reduce wrinkles, give the skin a fuller appearance, and reduce shadows under the eyes. On the other hand, you can get rid of eye bags with Botox treatments. Other wrinkles around the eyes such as smile lines can also be smoothen with Botox injections.
Botox is not typically used to treat dark circles, as it is a cosmetic treatment used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Instead, to change the way you look, we advise combining it with other procedures. Treatments to minimize dark circles may include creams and serums, laser therapy, chemical peels, and microneedling.
