Facial aging can also be a reason behind this problem. In short, dark circles around the eyes, frequently described as “tired eyes”, can be caused by a host of different things and can affect people of all genders, races and ethnicities.

But before deciding which treatment is best for you, it is important to determine what exactly is causing under eye circles. Treatment for heredity dark circles will be different from Dark circle treatment for hyperpigmentation or under-eye volume loss.
Some known causes of dark eye circles are listed below:
Dark eye circle causes:
Both dermatologists and ophthalmologists believe that possible causes of dark circles around the eyes include issues related to facial aging, lifestyle patterns and several medical conditions, such as allergies, eczema, melasma etc.
As you age a number of changes happen to your face, including
•Under eye volume loss
•Lower eyelid laxity
•Bulging of under eye fat
•Thinning of skin under and around the eyes
•Loss of facial volume or fat tissue loss in the cheeks
All these changes to your facial contours can cause dark circles around the eyes.
Your lifestyle choices also play a vital role in appearance of under-eye dark circles. Some real culprits are:
•Sun damage resulting in hyperpigmentation
•Consumption of caffeinated drinks
•Consumption of alcoholic beverages
•Lack of sleep
Other causes of under-eye dark circles
Some medical conditions are also associated with under-eye puffiness and dark circles. These include:
•Hyperpigmentation caused by melasma

Treatment for Dark circles around the eyes
If you are asking the question How to Get Rid of Dark Circles in Sharjah, there are a number of treatment options available to help you get rid of these ugly looking dark circles around the eyes. Dark circle treatments that we offer include:
Topical eye creams
Mild to moderate discoloration around eyes caused by melasma or sun damage are generally treated with topical bleaching agents. Creams containing kojic acid, Vitamins C and K, green tea, and licorice as active ingredient are often recommended by the dermatologists for treating under eye circles.
There are several over the counter eye creams as well for treating under-eye dark circles. Though these creams rarely provide a permanent solution to the problem, they may help to temporarily mask up the pigmentation.
Dermal fillers for under eye circles
The best technique used all over the world to treat under-eye dark circles and hollow tear troughs is the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are soft gel like substances injected under the skin primarily to add volume to face, enhance facial contours and fill up deep facial wrinkles and creases. However, dermatologists also use them to correct dark circles caused by loss of facial volume, under-eye volume loss or fat descent in the cheeks.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most commonly used dermal fillers in Dubai, but their results are temporary, lasting for a few months to one year. Dermal fillers that we use are Perlane, Ellance, Restylane, Teosyal, Juvederm, Radiesse and Esthelis.
IPL and laser skin resurfacing for dark circles
As you age, the skin becomes thinner, exposing the blood vessels under the eyes as blue or dark purple circles. If this is the case, some doctors recommend their patients Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy to decrease pigmentation problem and enhance overall skin texture. Some dermatologists in Dubai also use Laser skin resurfacing to treat under-eye circles by rejuvenating skin’s collagen production.
Though these procedures do help reduce dark circles by stimulating collagen production in the affected area, our doctors believe that it is not safe to use IPL or laser near the eyes. Even the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved this therapy for under-eye dark circles. So IPL or laser therapy will be the last option we will recommend you to treat eye-bags and dark circles.
Cheek lift to correct darkening under eyes
If nothing works, you may be recommended a surgical procedure such as cheek lift or a mild facelift to correct dark circles. However, cheek lift is suggested only when facial aging (cheek descent or drooping) is the reason behind the problem.
Tips to avoid dark circles from appearing in the first place:
As they say, prevention is better than cure, here are some tips to avoid these ugly looking dark circles around the eyes from appearing in the first place:
•Refrain from smoking
•Get enough night sleep (at least 6 to 8 hours)
•Always wear sun screen and sunglasses when going out in the sun to avoid pigmentation caused by UV rays
•Keep your body adequately hydrated (drink at least 8 glasses of water daily)
•Don’t rub the area around the eyes harshly, this may damage the blood vessels worsening the problem

Is the area around your eyes getting darker each day? Those dark circles may make some people freak out, while others dismiss the condition as a nuisance that will be eventually gone on its own. However, circles around the eyes should not be ignored, unless you find raccoon eyes attractive.
Dark circles around eyes are the second most complained about dermatological problem, next to acne. Aside from making you look tired, circles around the eyes can also make you look older, depressed, sick, and stressed. Not to mention that this problem can make you the butt of every joke.
Various factors cause black circles around or under the eyes. In most cases, the tendency for developing dark circles is inherited. Lack of sleep and fatigue are also among the leading causes of dark circles. If you lack sleep, you tend to become pale. This allows the blood in the skin around the eyes to become noticeable, making the area look dark or bluish. Sun exposure also contributes to dark circles because it boosts pigmentation of the skin around the eyes.
Women are more prone to having this problem around the eyes than men because of menstruation and pregnancy, which make the skin paler and the blood vessels around the eyes more visible.
If you are taking medicines that cause the blood vessels to expand, then you are likely to develop black circles around your eyes. Since the skin near your eyes is sensitive, increased blood circulation in it will show through the skin.
Any health condition that triggers itchiness in your eyes can lead to discoloration of the area around them. Asthma, allergies, hay fever, and eczema can cause you to constantly scratch your skin, making it darker.
Moreover, lack of nutrients in your diet makes you prone to developing dark circles around the eyes. Aging can also naturally cause the discoloration.
So what are you supposed to do with circles around your eyes? Your remedies to get rid of dark circles should be based on what’s causing your condition. For example, if you are frequently exposed to sunlight, you might need to limit your stay outdoors during the day. If you really need to stay out in the sun, make sure you apply facial sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 15 to avoid darkening around your eyes. No amount of makeup can permanently hide the discolorations near your eyes if you don’t zero in on the real causes.
More importantly, get enough sleep and eat more nutritious foods. That way, you can reduce or even totally eliminate the circles around your eyes.
Performing acupressure can help you get rid of dark circles. This exercise can be easily done everyday. Close your eyes, slightly press your ring finger under one eye, and move your finger from the interior corner of the eye to the exterior corner.
Dark circles around eyes may be a symptom of an underlying serious illness. If you think you’re sick, it’s best that you consult your doctor.
