Under Eye Cirlcles
While dark circles under your eyes aren’t necessarily a sign of exhaustion or serious illness, they can make you feel old, tired, and even unhealthy.
Dark circles—along with droopy eyelids—affect both women and men, often starting in young adulthood. It is not unusual to develop this discoloration even if you get plenty of sleep each night. Why? Because fatigue isn’t the only reason for under-eye circles. What appears to be under-eye circles are sometimes just shadows cast by puffy eyelids or the hollow under your eyes. Both of these things can develop as part of the normal aging process.
As an oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Mary's specializes in eyes and under-eye circle correction is one of her signature procedures.
