No family history of dark circles.She has not taken any treatment before.She used anti dark circles creams but they were not a permanent solution.The creams only lightened it for some time and after some days it was again the same.It all started around 4 years ago until then everything was ok.
She does not have any problems like weakness,stress,headaches,insomnia etc.Everything seems to be normal but the dark eye circles still exist.
She used to take dexorange syrup as she thought it may be due to iron related problem but it didn't work.

Go for fillers or lasers or IPL

Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs .
If the topical preparations are not very effective in the treatment of dark circles l would recommend your wife to go for fillers or fractional laser resurfacing or Intense pulse light ( IPL ) therapy.
These can be taken at some good dermatology clinic having expertise in this.

Brief Answer:
Use either wunder eye cream or melaglow cream

Detailed Answer:
She can use either Wunder eye cream or Melaglow cream on the affected areas.
Both are equally effective.
They are applied on the eyelids twice daily.
The treatment needs to be continued for at least 10-12 weeks to see any significant improvement.
