Dark circles under the eyes? At Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery we are constantly striving to meet the needs of our clientele. In the past few years, we’ve seen an increased interest and effectiveness in minimally invasive treatments. They have become popular because of the convenience for patients to not have to go through surgery and still get desired results.
To treat dark circles under the eyes Dr. Schimpf highly recommends the SmartSkin Cynosure laser. The SmartSkin+ includes the most versatile and advanced CO2 laser skin resurfacing features available, which results in more anti-aging results after just one treatment. Not only will your dark circles go away, you will also gain improved facial tone, tightened skin, and dramatically reduced wrinkles. Since this is a nonsurgical cosmetic technique, patients can have minimal downtime and recovery time. The laser targets weak collagen tissue and elastin support structure, to form new collagen, erase wrinkles, and tighten sagging skin. The SmartSkin+ reaches deeply into the skin to provide complete treatment. Dr. Schimpf recommends 2 to 3 treatments.
For those of you looking to lift your eyes and improve the dark circles under your eyes, the CO2 laser can be used as a non-surgical eyelid lift, which has also been named – the Madonna Lift created by Dr. Bruce Katz. For patients looking for more long term effects, you should consider blepharoplasty. The Madonna Lift uses the Smartskin+ laser to rejuvenate the entire eye area by:
- Softening dark circles
- Tightening loose, saggy upper eyelid skin
- Smoothing crow’s feet and other wrinkles in the eye area
- Lifting sagging brows
The Madonna Lift requires only topical numbing. The eyes are protected with metal eye shields during the procedure. We typically treat the delicate eye area with a series of 3 to 4 monthly Smartskin+ treatments.
For dark circles we also suggest an eye cream with a pharmaceutical grade product line. We carry two amazing lines, Skinceuticals and Epionce. Both of these products have an amazing eye cream with unique combination of ingredients to reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and crow’s feet. Come and pick yours up in the office!
