'Scars' Under Eyes? Treatment?

Postby doublemm on Tue Apr 18, 2017 8:01 pm

Hello all,

I’m seeking advice on the below; what you’d describe this as, possible treatment etc.


I’ve had this for as long as I can remember, since perhaps aged 12, so a good ten years or so .. It’s not noticeable when my face is lit front on/softly, which is why I’ve perhaps sufficed with it for so long .. However in any other lighting (outdoor especially), it’s very noticeable .. To a laymen like myself, it naturally appears like a symptom of tiredness - but regardless of sleep, it’s always there - and the fact it's been there for tens year or so, suggests it's more like a scar .. I hate looking constantly tired due to this, so as such, want to find treatment asap!

If I stretch my skin above/below the area where the issue is, the area of course looks completely smooth/perfectly normal, however when I let go, the skin resettles and the issue remains - so it’s definitely more a like ‘scar’.

Possible solutions? I feel unconfident anything natural or any kind of cream could fix this, given I’ve now had it for over a decade, but I'm no doctor ..

Thanks for taking the time to post within our forums. I'm going to move your post into the British Skin Foundation forum as I think your question is better answered by someone within that community.

Best wishes

Cheers :D

Thanks for the response.

Yes, bone structure makes sense - would explain why I've had it since such an early age.

Thanks for the kind words - I agree, and I've appreciated this particular flaw since I can remember, but lately it's really began to bug me, or more the image it gives off, as in someone who looks really tired and worn out - when I'm far from that.

Any input from anybody else on potential solutions to this, before I speak to a local dermatologist ..

Hi doublemm,

Thanks for your question. It's certainly worth speaking with a dermatologist who will be able to advise the best solution for you.

If you would like a list of dermatologists in your area (UK only) then please drop me a line and I'll send over for you.

I will advise you to drink more water than routine and prefer raw food over processed food. Avoid alcohol and have proper sleep every day.
