If dark circles are apparent from think skin, visible blood vessels & muscles underneath the eye, are fine lines related? Dark circles vs hyperpig.?

If dark circles are apparent from think skin, visible blood vessels & muscles underneath the eye, are fine lines related? Dark circles vs hyperpig.?

Partially: As you mention, dark circles are due to the thin skin and appearance of the blood vessels but the thin skin itself has a tendency to wrinkle more due to aging process and like an empty baloon that looks darker than an inflated one, the wrinkled skin looks darker than when its stretched. In some, the hyperpigmented skin is the problem and that has different solution. ...Read more

Can palomar skin rejuvenation cause thinned skin to thin more, and stay that way? Will it help with leaky veins under the eye? Can it cause fat loss?

Can palomar skin rejuvenation cause thinned skin to thin more, and stay that way? Will it help with leaky veins under the eye? Can it cause fat loss?

No ; don't use near: Eyes. Laser can't reduce eye puffiness, dark circles, or thin skin. It's also not used close to the eyelids, because of the proximity of orbital fat. Plus, the puffy lids recede back into the orbit, when the person lies down.Leaky veins around eye is best treated with controlling food allergies, and salt intake.If anything, lasers remodels dermis to be thicker ; not thinner with reamplification. ...Read more

My daughter white part of the eye isnt white like other people her eye is kind of pink, red vein is visible and a bit of grey. Is this cause by laptop.

Probably not: There is great variability to the "white" porion of the eyes surface . Some people have thinner sclera resulting in a grey or bluish color. Some people have prominent blood vessel that cause the sy=urface to look red-- this is normal. Other causes can be allergic or dryness. Sometimes prolonged computer use can cause the eye surface to dry out due to decreased blinking. Artificial tear supple. ...Read more

the occlusion happened over a year ago and I have been under a ophthamolo

You : You need to take this list of questions to the doctor who is doing your injections. It is certainly reasonable for you to know what the long term plan is, as well as the prognosis for your eye specifically. Unfortunately, the research shows that patients with swelling cannot just heal on their own. And having the injections every 6 weeks is definitely better than letting the swelling get worse, and possibly cause permanent damage to your vision. ...Read more
