Radiant look thanks to eyelid lift in Kassel

Generally, the cause of dark circles under the eyes is sought in exhaustion and little sleep. Medically, there are three possible causes:

  1. A dark pigmentation of the skin.
  2. A visibility of veins through very thin skin.
  3. Protrusion of the fat and consequent deepening of the tear trough (bags under the eyes).

The analysis now enables targeted therapy approaches, which we will be happy to present to you at the Noahklink and also carry out. Prof. Noah will be happy to advise you in his clinic in Kassel which measures make sense for you.

Injecting dark circles under the eyes: Procedure of the treatment

First, Prof. Noah checks which causes are responsible for the dark eye rims. If diseases can be ruled out, then it is necessary to consider which measure makes the most sense.

For pigment disorders, medical lightening creams can be used first. However, peelings also help. Amazing results can be achieved in selected treatments with micro fat.

In the case of vein drawings, it must be considered whether and how these can be sclerosed. Sometimes this also requires surgery.

The deepening of the tear trough is the treatment domain of the Filler. Prof. Noah usually uses hyaluronic acid in the first step because it is easy to model. If there are problems, it is quickly removed with hylase. Moreover, the body breaks it down again after a few months, so the patient can test the results first. Another advantage: hyaluronic acid is cheaper than autologous fat. However, if the patient wishes to have liposuction at the same time, the fat cells removed in the process can be used directly for injecting the dark circles under the eyes.

All the facts about injections at a glance:

AnaesthesiaNone or ointment
Treatment durationapprox. 20 minutes
Incapacity to workNo
Sportfrom the first day after treatment
PainSlightly pressing or pulling pain possible
Durability of the result6-12 months, permanent with autologous fat

So that you can better assess the result, you can receive before-and-after pictures of other patients on request.

Hyaluronic acid to remove dark circles under the eyes

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs in every human body. It is an important component of connective tissue. Synthetically produced hyaluronic acid is often used in plastic aesthetic surgery because it has a natural plumping effect. In the case of dark circles under the eyes, it helps to fill in typical hollows. Prof. Noah adapts the dose to the findings. After the injection, the skin layer is thicker.

How does the injecting of dark circles with autologous fat work?

Instead of hyaluronic acid, you can also remove dark circles with your own fat. To do this, Prof. Noah first removes fatty tissue from the thighs, knees or abdomen. After preparation, he injects it into the skin under the eyes to plump up the tissue. You can learn more about the technique on site if you wish.

Like any procedure, eye ring removal is not entirely risk-free. Possible complications include bruising, swelling and uneven skin texture. Nerve injuries are very rare. Especially with doctors who regularly perform injections. With inexperienced users who do not know the anatomical conditions, there is also a theoretical risk of blindness.

The prices depend on the method and the initial situation. Prof. Noah will be happy to discuss the costs with you on site. Unfortunately, the health insurance does not cover the treatment as it is not a medically necessary correction.

Combination with lacrimal sac removal or eyelid lift

If you not only suffer from dark circles but also have bags under your eyes, surgery may make sense. Excess tissue is removed. If necessary, Prof. Noah also corrects drooping eyelids or removes bags under the eyes using Eyelid lift. Afterwards you will have a clear view again and look younger and fresher.

Think about the follow-up cost insurance!

Removing dark circles is rarely associated with complications. However, in the event that further treatment is necessary, the health insurance companies can contribute to the follow-up costs. (§ 52 Social Code). Therefore, it is worthwhile to take out a follow-up costs insurance. You can get more information in our consultation hours.
