What cosmetic procedures really remove bruises under the eyes and what components should be in effective creams, patches and serums? BeautyHack asked three experts to explain the cause of dark circles and suggest effective remedies.
Doctor-dermatologist Viktoria Goncharuk identifies several reasons for the appearance of bruises under the eyes: the location of blood vessels, heredity, a violation of the water-salt balance (the fault is spicy or salty food, a large amount of carbohydrates at night, non-compliance with the drinking regime), allergies, eye strain, unhealthy diet, diseases of internal organs (kidneys, liver, gallbladder, pancreas or thyroid gland, anemia and even sinusitis). “The skin around the eyes is thin and delicate. The blood vessels underneath are more visible and the color is slightly darker. In this area, the collagen fibers are loose - because of this, the skin is easily stretched and edema forms. Dermatologists even have such a test: if the vessels become more visible with slight pulling, they are the culprits of the dark circles."

During the procedure, the specialist uses low-frequency electric currents. The cells are not damaged, but blood circulation is improved and cell regeneration occurs. I advise you to do this procedure for those whose bruises and bags under the eyes are not too pronounced. In this case, you will see a great visual effect! On average, the course takes 10-15 procedures.
Plus microcurrent therapy - it is painless, eliminates swelling, fine wrinkles, and generally improves complexion.
Plasma therapy Endoret
The procedure is done using the Endoret Gel technology, developed in Spain. Plasmogel is produced from the patient's plasma and is injected as a filler. The patient's blood is processed in a thermal apparatus, where a cocktail of amino acids, proteins and cell growth factors is created.
The result after a course of 2-4 procedures is elastic elastic tissues and deep hydration. Endoret plasma therapy is a kind of camouflage for dark circles under the eyes. Due to the active filling with useful components, the skin looks glowing, and bruises are less noticeable.
MesoEye C71 Injection
It is an injectable preparation that is used to correct the eyelid area and the area around the eyes. The basis of the drug is peptides (responsible for resorption of edema and strengthening of the walls of blood vessels) and a DRMC-complex of hyaluronic acid and trace elements that moisturize and tighten the skin.
For a noticeable result, I advise you to make a course of 3-6 procedures with an interval of 10 days. Then the effect can be maintained every six months. One procedure takes no more than 20 minutes, taking into account the preliminary treatment of the area around the eyes with an anesthetic and antiseptic.

Eye cream against dark circles Eyelisse, Joëlle Ciocco
The cream contains an extract of aloe (soothes and moisturizes the skin), arnica (improves blood circulation), orange blossom, grapefruit and borage seeds. It has a slight cooling effect. Madame Joelle Siocco herself recommends using it every day as a cream for the skin around the eyes and once a week as a mask (apply in a thick layer, leave on the skin for 15-20 minutes and blot with a napkin).
Hydrogel patches Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch, Petitfee
It contains snail secret extract, so the patches moisturize and restore tissue well. Other ingredients include collagen, vitamin E, and peppermint. Separately, I will say about the mulberry extract - it has whitening properties, due to which dark circles under the eyes and pigmented areas are reduced. The package contains 60 pieces.
Restoring night cream Reticap-EL-Night, Tebiskin
The Tebiskin brand is known for its peel and post-peel cosmetics. This is a remedy for the area around the eyes and lips. But it can only be applied at night - it contains encapsulated retinol.
I can say with confidence that after two weeks of use, dark circles under the eyes are reduced. Retinol works here - whitens pigmentation and dark circles.
Cream Hyalogy Daily And Nightly Cream For Eyes, Forlle'd
Universal cream for young skin. Among the components are luffa extract (a plant that improves lymphatic drainage) and arbutin (it is found in all bleaching agents). Hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin. Forlle'd has another eye cream - Platinum Eye Cream. It also removes bruises and swelling well, but this is an anti-age remedy.
Collagen masks under the eyes Eye Regenerating Mask, Valmont
The composition contains mucopolysaccharides and natural collagen - moisturizing ingredients that increase skin elasticity. Caffeine, arnica, green tea are responsible for reducing puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. The set includes collagen masks themselves (soak on the face for at least 20 minutes), a preparation complex (a mixture of mucopolysaccharides and herbal components, which I have already mentioned) - they need to moisturize the mask before use, and post-collagen care is the final stage of care.

Correction with fillers is done in case of thinning of the layer of adipose tissue under the nasolacrimal sulcus. Because of this, the nasolacrimal groove becomes more expressive. This contributes to the redistribution of the shadow - visually it seems that the circles have become darker. In order to eliminate the unpleasant effect, the nasolacrimal groove or the mid-buccal part is corrected with fillers.
Serum Philoretin Cf Gel, ScinCeuticals
The case when the remedy perfectly removes traces of fatigue and swelling. The main active ingredient is pure L-ascorbic acid. Antioxidant serum reduces wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, reduces dark circles under the eyes and relieves puffiness.
BrightMud mask, GlamGlow
It contains substances that stimulate blood circulation and saturate the skin with moisture. Ten minutes and the swelling is less noticeable.
Patches Gold Recoony, Secret Key
Fatigue of the organs of vision can cause stagnation of blood in the capillaries. Bottom line: dark circles under the eyes. Get rid of them by normalizing your work schedule: try to follow the daily routine, walk more in the fresh air - this helps to normalize blood circulation. If you need to get results quickly, use masks and patches. My favorites: Gold Recoony by Secret Key. Thirty minutes and the dark circles are less noticeable. Unlike hydrogel pads, these patches do not interfere at all - you can stick on and calmly do your household chores.
