Is there any type of laser procedure that will lighten dark undereye circles?

Is there any type of laser procedure that will lighten dark undereye circles?

Lasers don’t always work for this but a series of 2-3 fractionated CO2 (like the DEKA DOT or Lumenis Active/Deep Fx) laser treatments would be your best choice.  Be sure to go to an expert for this.   When working on the eyelids close to the eyes, the eye laser shields that are put into the eye like a contact lense (with numbing drops and cushioning gel) should be used!  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
