How to minimise your dark circles

The Cosmetic Clinic understands how dilapidating dark circles around your eyes can be. But what actually causes them? Is there anything that can be done to get rid of them permanently?

The answer to why we get dark circles is complex. From genetics to circadian rhythm to dehydration; there are several causes as to why it might look like you’ve just watched The Notebook while wearing non-waterproof mascara. The good news is, there are plenty of medi-aesthetic solutions to keep the dark orbs at bay. Here are our treatment recommendations for caring for your eye-contour the right way.


Sleep and hydration is essential to looking and feeling fresh as a daisy. While you sleep, your cells rebuild and regenerate, and water is absolutely essential in supporting this process.

Not enough water + not enough sleep = dark circle city.

To support the process even more, our Balense Ageless Eye Cream is a saviour. Packed with a potent, peptide-rich hyaluronic formula, this eye cream not only significantly brightens up your under-eye area but also reduces wrinkles by up to 63% – yay!


Micro-needling can save the day

Staring at your computer screen, phone and TV causes significant strain on your eyes, which can cause the blood vessels around your eyes to enlarge. As a result, the skin around your eyes can darken over time from excess exposure.

Overexposure to the sun can also cause your body to overproduce melanin, the pigment that provides your skin with colour. Too much sun can cause pigmentation under your eye area, making it darker than usual.

Never fear, there’s a way to correct years of screen time or over exposure to the sun. Our micro-needling treatment can safely treat the delicate s

kin under the eye. By using tiny needles to create small perforations, or ‘micro-channels’ in the skin, this stimulates the healing response of the deepest layers, encouraging your skin to make new collagen-rich tissue.

The micro-channels created during a micro-needling treatment allow active ingredients from our skincare products to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin, delivering even more effective results and minimising those dark-circles into the next dimension.
