By now, you’re likely familiar with the rejuvenating effects of microneedling on your skin. However, you might be surprised to learn about its specific benefits for the delicate under-eye area. Microneedling, known for smoothing fine lines and reducing the appearance of dark circles, offers remarkable results. At Viva Aesthetics our expert team provides advanced microneedling using the latest technology to ensure you look as relaxed and radiant as you feel.

Understanding Dark Circles Under the Eyes

Many of us will notice dark circles under our eyes at some point, often due to fatigue, poor diet, or stress. While these circles usually fade with rest and improved lifestyle choices, they can also be a persistent sign of aging. As we age, our body’s collagen production diminishes, leading to volume loss under the eyes that can intensify the appearance of these shadows. Moreover, puffiness in the lower eyelids can cast shadows, making under-eye circles more pronounced.

The Promise of Microneedling for Dark Circles

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, has proven highly effective in diminishing these dark shadows. The procedure involves making tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. This process helps to plump up the under-eye area, tightening the skin and improving its tone and texture. Furthermore, microneedling can reduce hyperpigmentation and discoloration, enhancing the overall evenness of your skin.

How Microneedling under your eyes helps with dark circles:

Collagen Production: Microneedling stimulates collagen production by creating tiny punctures in the skin. This process initiates a healing response that increases collagen and elastin levels, which can thicken the skin and improve its elasticity. Thicker and more elastic skin under the eyes can reduce the visibility of blood vessels that contribute to the appearance of dark circles.

Improved Blood Circulation: The healing process triggered by microneedling can also improve blood flow to the area. Better circulation helps in reducing the stagnation of blood, which can darken the under-eye area.

Skin Rejuvenation: By promoting the turnover of skin cells, microneedling can help in rejuvenating the under-eye skin. This can lead to a more even skin tone and texture, which might help in reducing the appearance of dark circles.

Enhanced Product Absorption: The microchannels created by microneedling improve the absorption of topical treatments such as vitamin C or retinol, which can further help in reducing pigmentation and improving skin health under the eyes.

Safety of Microneedling Under the Eyes

Given the thin and sensitive nature of under-eye skin, it’s crucial to choose a provider who is highly qualified and experienced in microneedling. At Viva Aesthetics our professionals are not only certified but have extensive training in performing safe and effective treatments. We ensure that the delicate under-eye area is treated with the utmost care, using appropriate techniques and equipment to minimize any risks and maximize results.


When to Expect Results

The full benefits of microneedling build gradually as collagen production increases. Initial improvements may be visible within a few days, but significant results typically unfold over several weeks to months. With a consistent skincare routine and minimal sun exposure, the effects can last up to six months, keeping your eyes looking bright and youthful.
