The eyes are an incredibly important part of the human body Through them we see the world, and the world sees into us!
If you’re lacking confidence in your eyes because of dark circles under the eyes, bags under the eyes, or crow’s feet, it can seriously impact you! At Blush Aesthetics, Toledo’s favorite med spa, we have a variety of treatments and tools, such as under eye filler, that can improve these common eye-area concerns.
First, what makes eyes age so fast?
Before we get into our professional eye treatments, it might be helpful to briefly explain why the skin around our eyes is so vulnerable to aging. Most people know that as we age, our skin loses elasticity. This is caused by a breakdown of natural collagen and elastin fibers, which are connective tissues important to the structure of skin.
The eyes are vulnerable because the skin surrounding our eyes is very thin to begin with. Thin skin is more susceptible to becoming looser and developing fine lines and wrinkles. The tissue around the eyes is also naturally lacking in connective tissue due to its thinness. The lack of collagen means veins are more prominent, and thin skin is more likely to fill with fluid which leads to puffy eyes.
When it’s all added together you might wonder if we aren’t supposed to have eyes that look 10 years older than the rest of us! Thankfully, science and nature have come together to provide us with a variety of incredible solutions.
How to get rid of dark circles
We’ve all probably asked ourselves how the heck to get rid of dark circles under the eyes. When it comes to dark circles under the eyes, sometimes the issue has a medical cause. Because we’re here for your health first and foremost, our experts will work through discovering the root cause. We investigate things like potential allergies or anemia before addressing the cosmetic concern.
What causes dark circles under the eye?
Obviously a main cause of dark circles under the eye is exhaustion or a lack of sleep. When we see someone with dark circles, we tend to automatically assume they’re tired. There are actually a variety of things—some medical, some genetic—that can lead to dark circles. Common causes of dark circles include:
- Reduction or separation in fatty tissue around the eye
- Thinning skin under the eye
- Anemia (iron deficiency)
- Overexposure to sun
- Frequent rubbing of the eyes
- Inherited genes
- Thyroid conditions
- Certain glaucoma treatments
As you can see, there could be so many things causing you to have dark circles or puffiness under your eyes! We wouldn’t be doing you a service by ignoring the potential causes and recommending a treatment right away. But don’t worry, we WILL figure out how to get results!
Sweep away under-eye hollowing with under-eye collagen building threads
Our under-eye enhancing collagen threads help your body to replace collagen where you need it most to enhance the light reflection in the under eye area. Instead of band aid solutions, threads can provide an organic enhancement that treats the underlying deficiency. They also have the added benefit of triggering your body’s healing response. This encourages collagen production in the treated areas. If you want to fight the effects of aging, collagen is vital. When it comes to how to get rid of hollowing and dark circles, collagen can work wonders.

Injectables for rejuvenated eyes
Botox® has been used in the fight against wrinkles for decades. It works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. Through careful application, certain types of wrinkles can be lessened or even removed with Botox®.
Botox® is perfect for the area around your eyes, because it only works on wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Those are known as dynamic wrinkles, or just expression lines. That means softening crow’s feet!
