Extremely Dark Circles Under The Eyes, Had Under Eye Laser Treatment. Will Another One Help ?

Hello I have extremely dark circles under the eyes . I am an RN and even doctors I work with ask me constantly what's happened as they both look like very black eyes and resemble a recent boxing match! . I have had a brutal under eye laser treatment in April, (cool laser)with some slight improvement. It has been suggested that I have it repeated. Is another one likely to help further. It was very painful, with a lot of downtime and expensive .I know it is hard to assess properly without seeing the circles. Injectables have also been mentioned, but I am not keen on this idea. Thank you very much for any advice

Hi, usually the vitamin defeciency is the major cause of the dark circles around the eyes. it is due to the excess deposit of the pegment milanin. I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. Recently there are ointment and soaps for removing the melanin from the tissues. Thank you.
