What are Dark Eye Circles and How to Tackle Them

The main reasons for facial consults are typically aesthetic, and amongst the pigmentary conditions, dark eye circles are one of the most common concerns.

What are Dark Eye Circles actually? They are homogeneous pigment macules on the infraorbital regions that present as darkening of the skin under or around the eye. As we would notice the skin around the eyes is a thin and sensitive area, multiple etiologic factors contribute to the formation of this particular hyper-pigmentation, such as melanin deposition, sun exposure, periorbital edema, superficial vasculature, and shadowing due to skin laxity. These are pathological pathways that point to a certain irregularity in the body, whether systemic or localised.

Skin Rejuvenation with Facial Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture, is a means of targeted treatment administered by TCM physicians to manage skin health through localised and channelled healing.

The basis of healing comes from both external and internal regulation. Externally, the insertion of needles causes micro-trauma to the skin that releases electric impulses and localizes immune cells, enhancing the healing mechanism on the skin. Perforation also encourages the production of collagen and elastin fibres that fill up enlarged pores or uneven surfaces. Another effect is the renewal of epidermal cells. These cells store and maintain water and nutrient level underneath the skin, increasing dermal illuminance and elasticity. Internally, the physician will begin with a simple and thorough consultation session to qualify the imbalance of the body’s internal system. Thereafter, a diagnosis of the underlying condition is then tracked and taken care of through acupuncture along meridian pathways.
