Dark circles can make you look tired, stressed and even older at times.

Treating under eye dark circles is important as it can alter your personality, and even boost your confidence. There are many treatments available for dark circles, under eye fine lines and wrinkles these days. Some of the most common and effective treatments are:

Carboxy treatment

Carboxy therapy helps improve skin elasticity, stimulate collagen production, improve circulation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along with destroying localized fatty deposits. Carboxy therapy is most commonly used in treating dark circles to reduce discoloration under the eyes.

It refers to induction of controlled administration of carbon dioxide gas for therapeutic purposes. Carboxy therapy has been used for treating stretch marks, cellulite and hypertrophic scars with impressive results. Carboxy therapy uses carbon dioxide which is a natural constituent of our very being. We breathe in oxygen, and we exhale carbon dioxide which implies that it is present in our system with every breathe we take. Thus, there are no risks associated with carboxy therapy.

Under eye dark circles are formed due to poor circulation beneath the lower eyelids, hollow depression, insufficient sleep or a darkened pigment. By injecting a controlled amount of carbon dioxide gas beneath the skin of the lower eyelid, the blood circulation improves and thus reduces the appearance of under eye dark circles. Carboxy therapy takes hardly 5-10 minutes, and is virtually painless with negligible side effects.

In order to achieve an optimal result, you can go for a series of 2-6 treatments taken one week apart. Carboxy therapy is also known to treat cellulite and stretch marks. It can be effectively used on the eyelids, neck area, face, arms, buttocks, stomach and legs.

Downtime with Carboxy Therapy

Carboxy therapy has a very little downtime. Injections are used to infused carbon dioxide gas beneath the skin of the lower eyelid to improve blood circulation. The body has all the active systems to eliminate the small amount of carbon dioxide injected during the treatment within just a few minutes. The patients can leave the office and immediately get back to their normal lives after having a carboxy therapy treatment.

Because of its negligible downtime, patients often rely on carboxy therapy for a quick, effective and safe under eye dark circle removal treatment. There are no risks associated with this treatment and is safe for almost everyone who has dark circles.

Side effects of Carboxy Therapy

There are no major or significant side effects linked with carboxy therapy. However, some patients have observed a slight redness, puffiness, bruising and ant-bite like pain at the injection sites. These side effects last from one to five days and subdue without any external treatment or medication. No long-term side effects have been reported so far.

Laser Treatments

Under eye veins are usually caused due to old age, however, in some cases it is a hereditary trait that children carry on from their genes.
