What Is Dark Circles Removal?
Dark circles are usually dark because of underlying pigmentation and can also be caused by dark blood vessels. But they can also appear because of changes in the tissues beneath the eyes, resulting in a tired look even if you aren’t fatigued at all. Non-surgical dark circles removal is a safe and effective way to reduce the dark discoloration around your eyes. The procedure can involve laser treatments, injectables, or both depending on the individual patient’s needs. Our treatment focuses on using specialized injectable fillers to restore the under-eye area and rid it of dark circles.
Dark Circle Removal Treatment Overview
At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, dark circles removal is usually done with a personalized treatment plan of filler injections. We start by numbing the area to ensure comfort during the procedure, though some patients do not even need this in order to have a comfortable experience. Then we use careful injections of specialized fillers (such as Juvederm) to replenish lost volume and smooth out wrinkles that have formed around the eyes. The fillers add a natural-looking fullness to the area, which helps erase dark circles and other signs of aging.
From start to finish, a treatment session lasts only about half an hour, though this can vary depending on your unique treatment plan. As soon as your treatment session wraps up, you can get right back to your day, even returning to work in most cases if you want.

Dark Circles Removal Before & Afters
Am I a Candidate for Dark Circle Removal?
If dark circles are making you look more exhausted than you feel, dark circles removal with injectables can be a viable treatment option. Most patients find that the procedure is very comfortable and yields results in as little as one session. Since the entire process is non-surgical, it is open to a wider range of patients than a traditional procedure would be. However, for more severe dark circles, we may recommend a lower eyelid surgery to some patients in order to help them see the results they want. To determine if dark circle removal is right for you, you can schedule an appointment at Chicago Oculofacial Consultants. During your initial consultation, our eyelid specialist, Dr. Williams, can assess your individual needs and create a dark circles removal treatment plan that best fits your goals. Contact us today to start getting the look you want! Our patient-focused team is here to help you achieve healthy, beautiful eyes and a stunning facial aesthetic.
After the Surgery: Recovery
The dark circles removal procedure is non-surgical, so there is no downtime afterward. You may experience slight swelling and redness in the area for a few days, but this should dissipate quickly on its own. In general, you will be able to return to your normal activities within hours of completing the dark circles removal procedure. These treatments are all about delivering safe, effective results without the risks, discomfort, or inconveniences that can come with surgical methods.
After the Surgery: Results
The dark circles removal treatment provides beautiful, natural-looking results with even a single session. Your dark circles will be reduced in color and size, while the skin around your eyes should look smoother, younger, and more refreshed. These results typically last for months at a time before they gradually begin to fade; when that happens, you can come back in for another appointment to maintain your results.
