Dark Circles Treatment


Dark circles are marked by the presence of circular patches of darkness around the eyes. While mostly dark circles occur as patchy circular marks surrounding the eyes; in a few cases puffiness or swelling may give rise to circular patches. Technically known as ‘per orbital hyper pigmentation’, dark circles are marked by excess production of melanin around eyes.
