Interestingly most who complain of dark circles under the eyes are young, usually in their 20’s, and many are models, movie actors, Hollywood film stars, and Bollywood stars and starlets. Dark circles under the eyes are usually the first noticeable sign of facial and eyelid aging.

Dark circles under the eyes are also a serious problem for many average people, but particularly for models, movie film stars and starlets, actors, Hollywood stars, Bollywood stars and other people who are photographed or filmed by cinematographers for their livelihood.

This is because the lights used in movies and photography cast a very dark deep shadow into the dark circles under the eyes and makes the individual being photographed appear much older and tired. A 20 year old model , actor or movie star with dark circles under the eyes can appear to be in their 30’s or 40’s when filmed or photographed under these conditions and this can have devastating consequences for a modeling career, acting career or movie career.

Make up is not an adequate solution for dark circles under the eyes. Unfortunately, many models, actors and movie stars elect to have a plastic surgery operation called a blepharoplasty to correct dark circles under the eyes, and the traditional scalpel blepharoplasty as often performed in the US today can actually make the dark circles under the eyes worse and create a hollow eyed appearance.

I call the dark circle under the eye the Arcus Deformity because the dark circle is caused by the attachment of a structure called the arcus marginalis to the skin of the lower eyelid. The arcus marginalis tethers the eyelid skin to the bone of the eye socket and creates the depression or dark circle just below the eyelid above the cheek.

To correct the dark circles under the eyes I perform a laser procedure called an arcus marginalis release with fat grafting or fat repositioning. I do this operation through a small laser incision on the inside of the eyelid, called a transconjunctival blepharoplasty approach. The benefit of the transconjunctival incision is that there is no visible scar on the outside of the eyelid. More importantly there is no damage to the supporting structures of the eyelid so no change in eyelid shape occurs. Traditional scalpel blepharoplasty involves making an incision on the outside of the eyelid and damages the support of the eyelid and results in a sad eyed look or hound dog eyes appearance called ectropion.

The laser transconjunctival arcus marginalis release avoids damage to the supporting structures of the eyelid and leaves the natural beautiful shape of the lower eyelid in tact, and as shown above, achieves a beautiful result.

Using the laser for the transconjunctival arcus release and fat grafting to remove dark circles under the eyes allows me to do this operation in 30-45 minutes with minimal bruising which is often gone in 5-7 days and can be covered with make up in 4-5 days.

Many people who have dark circles under the eyes only have pigment or dark eyelid skin color and do not need an arcus marginalis release. For these people a simple laser resurfacing with the fractional 2940 Erbium laser is all that is needed (See Photo Below):

Dark circles under the eyes can be a serious detriment to the career of models, actors, movie stars, Hollywood Stars, Bollywood Stars, and other people who make their living being photographed and filmed. Unfortunately dark circles under the eyes become noticeable in the mid to late 20’s, usually the most important and productive years in a modeling career or film career.

This simple, safe procedure could add years to the productive life of a model, actor, movie actor or film star and avoid the devastating consequences of an external scalpel blepharoplasty which could ruin a movie career, acting career or modeling career if the sad eyed look or hound dog eyes complication occurs.p>

For the average person who is troubled by dark circles under the eys, this new laser procedure can refresh the eyes and face and improve self esteem.
