Dark Circles

Dark Circles Around the eyes.

Dark circles are a common skin issue that arises as a result of aging, tiredness, or a poor diet.

At FTT Skin Clinics, we offer a wide range of both clinical, and at home solutions to tackle dark under eye circles and improve skin elasticity.

Why do we have Darks Circles?

  • Increased pigmentation (melanin).
  • Loss of fatty tissue in the eyelid or around the eye.
  • Bulging fat and muscle loss.
  • Puffy eyelids.
  • Thin, translucent skin.
  • Shadowing due to anatomic shape of the orbit.

Those prone to dark circles under the eyes include:

  • The elderly (but they are also a common complaint in adolescents).
  • People of non-white ethnic background.
  • People with a genetic predisposition to dark circles under the eyes.

Dark circles can be attributed to by volume loss under the eyes. As you age, your skin naturally loses its elasticity and becomes more fragile due to loss of fat in the fat pads under your eyes. Volume loss can also occur prematurely in young people due to high UV exposure, poor diet and lifestyle, lack of sleep, or due to inherited traits.

The second leading cause of dark circles are allergies. Congestion in your sinuses leads to congestion in the small veins under your eyes. The blood pools under your eyes and these swollen veins dilate and darken, creating dark circles and puffiness.

Another cause of dark circles can be atopic dermatitis, commonly known as eczema. When flare ups of itchy inflamed skin occurs under the eyes, damage can result from scratching and irritating the delicate skin tissue, results in dark patches under the eyes, in combination with pigmentation and natural thinning of the skin as you age.

Menopausal Skin

What is Menopausal skin?

The Menopausal skin time of life begins 12 months after a woman’s last period. This triggers changes throughout the body, hair but also your skin. Post-menopause changes and skin concerns are mainly all a result of the declining hormone Estrogen. When this hormone declines, water retention, hydration and collagen production also drops as a result. Here at FTT Skin Clinics we offer a range of in clinic treatments and at home skin care. To maximise your well-being and skin’s health during these unfamiliar changes.

Symptoms of Menopausal Skin Concerns.

  • Loss of Volume and Plumpness of Skin – When our hormone levels drop, our collagen production decreases with it. We lose that youthful, hydrated bounce to our skin, most commonly around the cheek & jowls area of the face. Tissue & skin may start to sag as well as lose its tightness.
  • Skin Irritation – Due to decreased skin hydration you may find your skin being more dry than usual, flakey texture as well as irritable. If your skin looks red or rashy, we advise seeing your doctor first.
  • Dark Spots or Age Spots – Age & dark spots appear commonly after menopausal change. This may look like a change in pigmentation of your skin.
  • Excess/Unwanted Facial Hair – Most commonly developed on the upper lip, chin, lower part of the face
