    As others have said, there's not much you can do with topical products, but it wouldn't hurt to use something to prevent any further pigmentation and/or puffiness.

    Roc makes amazing products and you can buy them at drugstores and supermarkets. They're quite pricey though.
    Eating foods rich in vitamin K, or supplementing with vitamin K could also be beneficial.

    I personally think dark circles can be quite attractive.

    whateveryo saidThere's nothing out there cream wise that can help I'm afraid unless it's due to excess pigmentation ( I know because I suffer from really bad dark circles).

    The only sure fire way to get rid of them is with concealer but that depends on how comfortable you are with wearing make up.


    SO NOT TRUE !!!...
    OP...Roc..Garnier...Olay Regenerist..Nevia for Men..has 4 or 5 products that will clear that up..!..

    This is my routine....
    Exfoiliating gloves from Walgreens..
    Neosporin original ointment...
    Rubbing alchohol..70-90%
    Garnier eye roller..
    anti bacterial liquid soap..

    No i'm not a raging queen..i do this every other day ..black don't crack..but it shure does pucker..icon_eek.gif

    Op..wet your face..wash with the anti bact. soap..
    Put on your exfoiliating gloves..wet them..dab a little alchohol.a little more soap....gently massage under and around your eyes...wash..apply..your under eye cream..

    every other night ..do the above routine..but apply the neosporin..go to bed..
    Within 5 treatments..you'll see change...
    (Roc dark circle corrector is the bomb)
    (The garnier eye roller is very convenient)

    What..??
    You guys are awful!!

    I got lasik mid-May and I didn't get any dark circles under my eyes after the surgery icon_sad.gif

    If you're extremely worried, I'd call the person who did your surgery about this. If you got it today, then I mean it might be just a side effect. I don't know how other doctors work out after-care procedures, but you should be seeing your doctor tomorrow or soon for a check up. Ask him/her then.

    Antarktis saidwear sunscreen and UVB sunglasses for a couple of weeks


    Best recommendation. If the dark circles are due to hyper pigmentation caused by UV exposure, sunscreen and sunglasses can help.

    Also I noticed an improvement after using a retinol serum around the eyes.

    Interesting routine but I'd be wary of putting alcohol near the eye area due it's drying effect which can lead to lines. Also it's a delicate area, if you constantly rub the under eye area too much it can make eye bags/dark circles much more apparent because the skin is so thin.

    Caffiene can be good for reducing puffiness but if he already has prominent eye bags nothing other than surgery is really going to help.

    I think some people have had success with retinol based products like Roc or prescription based creams to help build more collagen to plump up the area but I've also read stories about them making it look worse as tretinoin can thin the skin.

    sanjose470 saidI recently got lasik surgery after wearing glasses for over 20 years and I noticed dark circles and bags under my eyes. I don't know if it was from the surgery or I didn't realize I had them because my glasses were always covering my fact. Anyone know what works best to remove or minimize this?


    I suffer from this and in my family it's hereditary; both dad and grandad have the same issue. You can't do anything about it. To minimize it you will need to not smoke, get enough sleep and eat healthily.

    I also started using concealer recently which hides to blue colouring a bit.

    Also, don't even bother buying eye creams, the are good for shit. I bought various ones over the years and they simply do not work.

    The fact of the matter is is that you can't get rid of dark circles if you've always had them.

    Ariodante saidI like bags around my eyes. And around my nose, and slapping me in the face with a dull fleshy rhythmic thud.
