I want to know how to get rid of very dark circles under my eyes?


I'm very young and have had extreme dark circles under my eyes since I was 10.  I have tried many types of makeup, but none have worked. I'm thinking of surgery to correct this although I don't know exactly which eye surgery would be best, also to help the most to look natural. Please advise.


Dark circles around the eye can be an extremely complex issue. A history and physical examination would certainly be required to make the best determination of what treatment would be best for you. Ethnicity, medications, medical conditions, etc. can have a role in the cause and treatment of dark circles around the eyes. Consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area that specializes in laser treatments.
