Under eye dark circles
Skin around the eye is the most delicate on the body in fact, it is said to be up to 10 times thinner compared to the skin on the rest of the face. One common periorbital concern, with patients complaining of looking run-down, tired and older than their years, is dark under-eye circles. Dark circles are notoriously hard to treat, with a very small margin for error. They therefore all periorbital treatments should only be carried out by advanced practitioners with a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the area.
What causes dark circles?
There are many reasons why patients might appear to have dark circles under their eyes. The number one reason is hyperpigmentation of the skin and the second reason is to do with the anatomy of the area. As the skin is very thin, you don’t have a huge amount of subcutaneous or fatty tissue to bulk it out, therefore you are just looking at skin and blood vessels, which gives that dark appearance.
Anatomy and general ageing
In youth, the intersection between the lower eyelid and the check junction blends , and the area is naturally convex. But as we start to age, soft tissue breaks down, showing more of the underlying bone. By the mid 30s and early 40s, bony changes commence the eye sockets will start expanding, and the mid-face will start collapsing. The maxillary bone, which is responsible for projection of the anterior cheek, starts collapsing. Due to soft tissue and bony loss, the appearance of a dark circle worsens due to volume loss under the eye.
When it comes to hyperpigmentation around the eye, a huge contributing factor is ethnicity, with patients of darker skin types being genetically more prone to developing periorbital hyperpigmentation. Although Indians can have dark circles in their 20s, it is not common in fair skinned people.
Lifestyle is another important factor to consider, as a dark under-eye can be a reflection of the patient’s general health. If a patient is in their 20s and has dark circles, it may be due to poor diet, anaemia, eye rubbing and late nights.
Consult a plastic surgeon
The key to treating the periorbital area is assessment; assessment is probably the most important step because it is crucial to figure out what is actually causing the majority of that darkness. For example, if it is more of a pigmentation problem, then you can treat the pigmentation either using peels, creams or lasers. If it is to do more with the appearance of the blood vessels, and they don’t have pigmentation, but they have got very thin skin, then you can treat this differently with the likes of injectables and Fat fill. And structural defects due to volume loss or under eye bags needs fat graft and surgical correction with Blepharoplasty.
The elimination of dark circles can be effectively achieved by volume augmentation of the tear trough, and this seems to be the most common treatment choice. If patients have hyperpigmentation we can create a camouflage treatment, where we use volumising product to reflect the light from the face, so you don’t see that shadow.
Another treatment option for this area is to use stem cells to regenerate the skin in the form of platelet rich plasma (PRP). The plasma is your own body’s growth factors and helps in repair of skin. It takes about three to six months to see the best results with multiple sessions. You will never get lifting or volume replacement like you would from dermal fillers or fat fill, but it does work nicely on the dark circles to provide skin rejuvenation.
Using fat is another way of using stem cells in the tear trough, although this would require a surgical procedure. The advantage with fat is that it is what you would have had there in the first place, so you are replacing like with like. Because fat is full of stem cells, it can regenerate the skin to help with the dark circles and quality of skin in the long term.
Blepharoplasty can address the fat bags or under eye bulges and also take care of excess skin seen with ageing. It can be performed without scar by trans-conjunctiva route and give the youthful look.
Various creams can address only the skin hyper pigmentation. The main ingredients in the cream are hydroquinone, Arbutin, Kojic acid, niacinamide. Also Topical caffeine and growth peptides have shown promising results for skin pigmentation.
Various laser can be used in hyper pigmentation of skin like IPL, Q switch NdYag laser and RF. Pulse dye laser is particularly helpful in people with prominent vasculature in periorbital skin.

The problem of an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia is a very common occurrence as you grow older. It's known to strike men above the age of 50, with more than 50% of men after the age of 60, having this complaint.
Causes of enlarged prostate
A non-cancerous condition, enlarged prostate makes the passing of urine from the bladder through the urethra difficult. The multiplication of the prostate cells causes an enlargement of the gland, leading to a buildup of pressure on the urethra, affecting the discharge of urine from the body. The narrowing of the urethra, due to this benign condition, forces the bladder to contract more vigorously so as to push urine out of the body.
As time passes, the muscles of the bladder get significantly affected, causing them to become extremely sensitive, thicker and stronger. As a consequence, the bladder begins to contract, even if the amount of urine in the organ is negligible, causing episodes of frequent urination. Gradually, the bladder fails to completely empty itself of urine due to the constriction of the urethra. This can give rise to a number of health problems including the formation of bladder stones, urinary tract infections, blood in the urine and so on.
How can you identify the signs of the condition?
Signs of enlarged prostate are very easy to identify and include:
- A slow or weak urine flow
- Difficulty in initiating urination
- Instances of frequent urination
- A feeling of not completely emptying one's bladder
- Frequent urination during the night
- Exerting a lot to urinate
- Instances of dribbling
- Urgency to pass urine
- A feeling of urinating again minutes after doing so
- Urination that starts and stops. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.
