Microneedling for Dark Circles

Re:nu Microneedling For Dark Circles


Are you tired of looking ‘tired’?

Dark Circles under the eyes can make you look worn out and tired, even when you’re not. And while you can cover them up with makeup, the constant application of makeup doesn’t solve the problem. In some cases, it can make it worse than before! Certain aesthetic procedures such as lasers are too risky to be used near the eye. But there is one aesthetic procedure that can be used to reduce dark circles and help with fine lines  and wrinkles around the eyes. Microneedling for Dark Circles has proven to be a good treatment for people seeking to improve the appearance of the under eye area. At Re:nu 180 Medspa, we have this option available for clients who are tired of covering and temporarily treating their circles.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that utilizes tiny needles to renew areas of the skin. It delivers several microscopic punctures in the skin, allowing for collagen rejuvenation. This method of treatment allows the body to use its own healing factors to repair any skin damage. Serums can also be added to help aid in rejuvenation. The microneedling allows for the serum to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

What are Dark Circles?

Contrary to the name ‘Dark Circles’, they are actually not circles at all. Instead, dark circles are pools of blood underneath the eyes. There are a variety of things that can cause the appearance of dark circles. This could be caused by: fatigue, allergies, heredity, pigmentation irregularities, and sun exposure. In addition, dark circles can be caused by thinning skin which makes the blood vessels more obvious under the eye.

How to treat Dark Circles with Microneedling

One of the ways that you can treat dark circles is with microneedling. Microneedling for dark circles has been shown to be effective in reducing their appearance. The MicroPen is used to deliver gentle scrapes on the dark circles. This causes tiny controlled injuries on the area of the dark circles. Sometimes the clinician may use a serum in conjunction with the micropen to aid in recovery. Afterwards, the skin uses its healing factors to repair the dark circles under the eye with little recovery or downtime. Side effects are minimal and may include the possibility of swelling. Skin texture can be improved upon with this simple microneedling treatment. With the boost of collagen production provided by the micropen, this helps the area under the eye to become full and firm. This effectively reduces the appearance of the dark circles. The body’s natural healing process takes over, an improved complexion, and more radiant skin is achieved.

How long does Microneedling for Dark Circles work?

Results from this treatment are typically long lasting. It is not like fillers or other aesthetic injections. It instead taps into the body’s own ability to create new collagen. The results typically last several years, with regular maintenance treatments. The use of serums can also help with the feeling and appearance of skin.

For maximum results, it is suggested to do a series of 3-4 microneedling treatments which are spaced about 4-6 weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments every 4-6 months after. This is because the continued maintenance promotes the production of collagen.


The results from the collagen-induction therapy, or Microneedling for Dark Circles, helps to improve skin elasticity, skin tone and provide skin rejuvenation, reducing the appearance of large pores. Collagen aids with plumping up the skin, making it appear firmer and tighter. This takes years off the appearance of the face, making patients appear more rested and youthful. Patients also develop a soft glow which makes their skin look soft and supple.
