Conditions: Tired Appearance Eyes / Under Eye Dark Circles

What are Tired Appearance Eyes / Under Eye Dark Circles?

Dark circles under the eyes can occur for several different reasons, they may happen as a result of a hollowness forming underneath the lower eyelid, this hollow groove (called the naso-jugal groove) forms as a natural result of tissue loss during the process of aging.

We know that as people age, they lose fat, muscle and bone all over the face, one of the first areas to show these changes is the under eye area. Common visible signs include shadows which fall into the groove of the eye area, causing the appearance of under eye dark circles as well as bags under the eyes which are caused by fatty tissue visibly protruding within the lower eyelid. Another cause of dark circles under the eyes comes from genetically inherited dark pigmentation as well as blood vessels that can be seen through the skin.

The skin around the eyelids (otherwise known as periorbital skin) is the thinnest skin on the body (only around 0.5 mm thick compared with 2mm in other areas). Blood passes through the veins close to the surface of the skin and can results in a bluish tint.

The thinner the skin, the darker the circles appear. Like many other skin conditions, dark circles are usually an inherited trait.
