One of the most common complaints that patients have upon contacting Venus Medical is that they feel aged by dark circles around the eyes. There are many reasons behind this extremely common issue, and unfortunately, eye cream bought at a premium cosmetics counter or pharmacy won’t make a difference. Some dark circles can be the result of shadows from bulging under eye fat or bags, but are often the result of considerable hollowness under the eye. This deficiency of under eye volume can in turn be the result of a weak cheek bone, certain shapes of orbital rim, or simply lack of fat. Genetics and epigenetics, as always, plays a part.


A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. It also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek that is an early sign of aging around the eyes.


How can Dr. Prendergast correct lines and dark circles around the eyes?

Rest assured that Dr. Prendergast has perfected the methods of non-surgical eye bag and dark circle correction. Under eye filler injections have minimized the appearance of persistent dark circles and eye bags for countless satisfied patients at Venus Medical. He has found innovative ways to treat many patients who are not ‘textbook’ ideal candidates.




Hyaluronic acid fillers are used beneath the eyes to fill in the depressed curve that forms between the cheek and the eyelid.  He sometimes may build up the cheek to help smooth the area between the lower lid and cheek. The goal is to fill the trough below the eyelid, and lift the cheek to provide a more natural contour between the two. This effectively reduces the appearance of the puffy eyes bags and dark circles.



It is advisable to select a medical practitioner who has performed at least hundreds of filler procedures because techniques are often refined over time. Dr. Peter Prendergast has an artist’s eye, and his precise nature ensures each individual achieves a natural and beautiful result.


Patients seeking treatment for dark circles often benefit from Lines & Wrinkles, Facial Volume & Contouring, and Lip Enhancement also.
