What Are Dark Circles?

Dark circles under the eyes are very common and are often result of lack of sleep, stress or dehydration. However there is also a common genetic trait that causes dark circles under the eyes. Melanin pigment on thin and transparent skin under the eyes can accentuate the appearance of blood vessels, causing the under eye area to look darker in color.

Dark circles are a medical problem can often be remedied at home. See our treatment video for more information.
