Dark Circles and IPL Photo-rejuvenation
Q. I have dark circles under my eyes even when I am getting plenty of sleep. People are always telling me I look tired and I am very self conscious of it, how can I change this?
A. Thank you for your email enquiry regarding dark skin under your eyes. There are a number of contributing factors that can cause these and various treatments available. Dark circles under the eyes are generally a combination of superficial pigment, shadowing from concavity in the area and visible vessels as the skin is quite thin.
Depending on how you present these can be treated with dermal fillers to “fill” any concavity and reduce shadowing, fading creams for pigmentation or IPL Photo-rejuvenation (Intense Pulsed Light) to reduce both pigment and vessels.
I would suggest you book in for a consultation with Dr Spano regarding your dark circles to discuss your treatment options, including IPL Photo-rejuvenation at your earliest convenience so that he can assess your skin and outline which procedures may be best suited to your condition.
Consultation with Dr Spano is $140 as a new patient. Prices can vary depending on treatments so this will be provided to you in consult.
You do also have the option of booking in with our Cosmetic Nurses to discuss your skin concerns and the possibility of IPL Photo-rejuvenation treatments. Our Nurses have a consult fee of $50 which is fully redeemable off your first treatment should you proceed with treatment. Most procedures are performed by our Nurses and Therapists and this can be a more cost effective option. Should you require a prescription fading cream we can then refer you on to Dr Spano and his consult fee is reduced to $90
I hope this has been of some assistance and please do not hesitate to contact either of our rooms to secure an appointment time.
