I have very, very bad dark circles under my eyes. About 12 years ago I had upper and lower eyelid surgery which was great - I also had my nose done at the same time. I have been having botox and fillers for the last 8 years or so (I am coming up for 60 but get away with 45 APART from horrendous dark circles under my eyes which are making me look ill and exhausted. I have NO bags just these dreadful circles. I have tried every over the counter product known to man and also went to see a dermatologist who was worse than useless. I am considering going to see a cosmetic surgeon to see if anything can be done surgically - has anyone had success with surgery? Did it work?

Hi Fawnie - I haven't been to see a surgeon yet - I was just wondering whether anyone had and whether there had been any success. I am going to make an appointment in the next couple of weeks and will report back on what the surgeon actually says to me then.

Fawnie,

Did you mentioned in a facial exercise thread that massage can help to fill out the under eye area? (sorry, if you wrote that years ago!)

I have circles because the skin around my eyes is very thin and transparent.
Do you think massage could plump up the skin enough to reduce dark circles?





please say yes

I can't find anything that works. Since I was 20, I'm 43 now, I have bought expensive creams and serums to help slow down the aging process. I have fair skin with freckles and determined to minimize any damage from the sun. Well, I'm often told I look like I'm in my early 30's because I don't have winkles. So some of the creams worked. However, I wasn't prepared for the dark circles. I know it's not from sleep. I actually think they are worse if I get too much sleep.


I would apperciate any suggestions.

PS - Dr. Oz on Oprah said we are either sinker or saggers, something like that, and it's true. I may not have wrinkles, but I'm having a battle with sagging skin. Any suggestions for the eyes, smile lines, and neck?

Yes.

That's what I am doing too to thicken and plump up the skin! I have a sunken area under my eyes that makes the area look dark. Slowly with the exercise and massage I am getting back the plump firmness of youth there!

There is a specific massage you do for it and the exercises tone up the muscles so the area is tight and firm.

I do FlexEffect but there are several other programs out there. This is the best one I have tried. Facial Exercise: If it's not FlexEffect It's not Facialbuilding.

I hope it helps you too.

I've been reading about Sculptra which gives the appearance of filling in the hollows under the eyes- has anyone tried this?
