Under Eye Problems

At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we believe the eyes are the windows of the soul. Under eye area could be problematic for many. It’s unfortunate when surrounding under eye area covered with uneven eyelids, or when ageing or wear and tear of life causes puffiness and loose around them. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with that sleepy, tired look. Explore the alternative of eyelid surgery – a safe, easy and effective way to make your eyes appear more youthful, rested and alert.

Dark circles under your eyes can make you look tired and haggard. But are under eye dark circles inevitable given today’s 24/7, fast-paced, snooze-and-you-lose world — or can they be treated? This Dublin based Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic offers a solution:

The first step toward getting rid of your dark under eye circles is to figure out what is causing them. Dark circles under the eyes may be caused by:

Iron or vitamin deficiency

Lack of sleep or too much sleep

Hyperpigmentation (uneven, dark skin patches)

Weight loss

Visible blood vessels due to thin, aging skin

Fat loss that causes a sunken look

Tear Trough Repair Creams

Many patients coming to us at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin use concealers to hide pigmentation problems around the eyes. Concealers can either be liquid, stick and pancake-type creams. These products can be applied and reapplied throughout the day. They can help cover your dark circles regardless of their cause. Many skincare manufacturers formulate compounds that they do anything from reducing swelling around the your under-eye area to moisturising this delicate skin area and lightening under eye circles.

Many of today’s products contain ingredients thought to reduce wrinkles or puffiness such as caffeine, retinoic acid, copper peptides, alpha hydroxyl acids and vitamin C. Over the years we tried and tested many. We eventually found a superior medical grade range Demani Skincare. It is vegan friendly not tested on animal and effective. Their Refine eye serum and also Recover night cream work wonders to correct and repair. Regardless of under-eye problem cause skincare should be used long-term to strengthen and maintain radiant eyes.

Under Eye Treatments

Under eye area is problematic at any age. Causes could be due to a number of underlying structural issues. The area is genetically predisposed to accumulate darker pigmentation. It is not tolerant of congested blood vessels when tiredness sets in. And because of this skin is the thinnest in the body, it has a tendency to become loose. Furthermore thin skin easily shows if there is too much or too little fat under the eye. However, when the problem is due to excessive sagging skin or extra too much fat volume around the eye socket, we find surgical correction is best choice. An operation called blepharoplasty, also known as eye-tuck.


The first step for correction is to identify the cause. Treatments like botulinum toxin may be effective for fine wrinkles. Botox works by relaxing eyelid muscles preventing them from crinkling. However it is not helpful if the problem is too much or too little fat pad support.


In this case tear trough dermal filler can help significantly. Fine hyaluronic acid fillers level smooth surface irregularities. An indentation below the eye know as the tear trough. A transition zone between the lids and cheeks. Dermal fillers do not address pigmentation problems.

Nano Fat

For dark circles associated with volume loss non-fat lipofilling is the ideal choice. Nano fat contains stem cells. These regenerative fat cells are packed with stem cell hormones that correct and regenerate tissue. Fat is taken from another area and processed into nano fat for injection.
