Dark Circles Treatment For Men

How to Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes

Under-eye bags and dark circles are not exclusive to women – many men also find that this problem area can cause them to feel insecure too. We offer an effective and subtle way to reduce dark circles, by injecting filler into the tear trough area.

Tear trough filler is a series of micro-injections that are carefully injected into the area underneath your eyes. This is often the place that feels sunken or hollow – especially for people who are self-conscious about their dark circles and adding filler to this area can bring back some vitality and youth back to your face. The fillers are injected, and then gently massaged into the area, to lift the skin and give a more youthful and full appearance.

Whereas once, the only way to get rid of eye bags and dark circles was to have surgery (something many people want to avoid) the tear trough filler offers a minimally invasive, and low risk option that is affordable too. The downtime is minimal, so you could be back at work the same day – which is often an appealing aspect for many patients.

Our highly experienced doctor has worked with many men, getting them the aesthetic results they have hoped for.

Why Do Men Suffer from Dark Circles?

dark circles menMen can get dark circles at any age, some men may even notice dark circles in their early twenties if their lifestyle is stressful or demanding. For most men, the appearance of dark circles tend to worsen with age, and this is just because of how skin and genetics change as you get older.

When men age, the skin under the eyes (tear troughs) becomes lax and the cheek fats reposition into the middle of the face. This allows semi-circular depressions to form and create a tired look. This hollow area that runs from the inner eye area to the upper cheek is called a tear trough hollow and it is a common aesthetic issue amongst men.

These “dark circles” under men’s eyes create unflattering shadows and give an impression of a weary and aged appearance. Under eye fillers can be injected to lift these hollow areas, removing the tired look and simultaneously lighten the dark circles caused by the shadow effect.

This is a revolutionary and virtually painless non-surgical eye-lift treatment that can provide instant results with almost no downtime. The treatment is very subtle but also very effective and you’ll leave looking fresh, younger and more awake.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The procedure involves careful introduction of under eye filler treatment to recreate the smooth, firm foundation of the area under the eyes. Facial fillers have pharmaceutical-grade hyaluronic acid that is similar to the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid found in facial soft tissue. Its main function is to support and hydrate the skin. It is one of the best fillers for use in tear troughs.

The treatment with hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers is entirely reversible, as we can use an enzyme that will remove the dermal filler effect within days. This works as a safety net, especially for clients who are new to this facial procedure.

Topical anaesthetic cream and injection are used prior to the treatment to ensure maximum comfort. Additional local anaesthetic is also combined with the filler to ensure that the under eye filler treatment is relatively painless. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and you will see improvement immediately. Final result is usually in 2 weeks time. Complimentary follow up is typically offered after 2 weeks of treatment.

The effect of the treatment can between 12-18 months typically.

Each syringe contains 1 ml of Juvederm Vycross range dermal filler. This is one of the latest fillers produced by Allergan, it is incredibly soft and therefore perfect for tear trough treatment. Although 1ml of dermal filler may be sufficient for both eyes, in some cases additional syringes are required depending on severity.

The cost of the first syringe is £350 with every additional syringe charged at £300.

More information

Before you begin treatment for your dark circles, we recommend that you:
• Avoid Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs) medicine for 2 days (e.g. ibuprofen, diclofenac).
• Avoid vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba for 2 days.
• Avoid alcoholic beverages for 1 day.
• Avoid aspirin for 7 days (if you take aspirin for medical reason, please consult your doctor).
During treatment your skin will be cleansed and disinfected and topical numbing cream will be used to ensure comfort, it takes about 5-10 minutes to work.
Local anaesthetic is integrated within all the dermal fillers used and is designed to further minimise any discomfort experienced both during and after the procedure. If needed an ice pack or Arnica might be used to minimise bruising.
Procedure takes around 30 minutes on average. If more than one syringe is needed, we do recommend to allow 1-2 weeks between treatments to avoid overfill. The result is pretty immediate with minimum or no down time at all.
In individuals with known hypersensitivity to dermal fillers treatment may be inadvisable.
In the presence of infection or severe inflammation at the injection sites (i.e. shingles).
Concurrent treatment such as laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Side effects are rare, mild bruising might occur, but this usually fades quickly (you can minimise bruising by avoiding medication before the procedure).
Mild swelling may occur and usually subsides within 2 days.
Please adhere to the post-treatment advice to avoid infection, antibiotics might be needed in such cases.
Loss of vision is extremely rare, we are very experienced in tear trough procedure and all necessary precautions will be taken to ensure your safety.
You can carry on with your day pretty much as usual immediately after leaving the clinic. The result is seen immediately and the effect lasts up to 2 years in most cases.

To achieve the best results we would ask that you please avoid putting on anything on the treatment areas for at least 4 hours after treatment.
Please avoid putting skincare with peeling chemicals for 2 days (e.g. glycolic acid).
Please avoid strenuous exercise for 2 days.
Please avoid alcohol for 2 days.
Please avoid sun tanning / sauna / extreme heat for 2 weeks.
