2.10 DARK CIRCLE OF EYES: Periorabital Melanosis

Treatment with Lasers:

Laser Skin Rejuvenation around the eyes: To refresh, restore, regenerate & revitalize the skin around the eyes, laser skin rejuvenation procedure is done. It is also done in tired & stressed eyes. There are 2 methods of laser skin rejuvenation of dark circle: Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation (Top flat beam Q Switch Nd:YAG laser technology) & ablative laser skin rejuvenation. (Ultra-Pulse®fractional Co2 laser technology).

In mild to moderate cases of dark circle: Non ablative skin rejuvenation is done in mild to moderate dark circle. One needs 6 to 12 sessions at a gap of 30 - 45 days. In some persons one may need maintenance dose in future to prevent aging changes. It soothes, smoothens & tightens the skin. Fine lines reduce. Those who want best results can undergo additional ablative laser skin resurfacing. In moderate to severe dark circle both of these methods are suggested, to produce total rejuvenation of the skin.

In moderate to severe dark circles: In such cases total skin rejuvenation of skin of dark circle area is required.

Two techniques of Total Laser Skin rejuvenation are used. These are ablative Co2 Laser skin resurfacing & non ablative laser skin rejuvenation treatment.

  • Ablative Laser skin resurfacing: In severe dark circle prominent wrinkles, dark thick layers, & dark spots are present, which are resistant to the treatment. We have developed special skin resurfacing technique with the help of latest laser technology of Ultra-Pulse®fractional Co2 laserskin resurfacing for improving prominent wrinkles & irregularly thickened pigmented spots of dark circle area. This procedure also improves smoothness, tightness, darker colour of the skin. Our Ultra-Pulse®fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing produces dramatic results. This procedure can be done 1-3 times at a gap of 4-6 months. Most of the persons satisfactorily improve in one sittings of Ultra-Pulse®fractional Co2 laser skin resurfacing. Those who want better results should undergo 2nd& 3rd sitting on whole area or part of area resurfaced previously.

  • Non ablative Laser Skin rejuvenation: Later on to reduce residual pigmentation, roughness, wrinkles we use Medlite C-6(Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser with flat top wave beam). One may need course of 6-12 sitting. Each sitting is done at gap of 3-6 weeks.(refer chapter 4.4, 5.8, 9.9 )
