Periorbital Pigmentation Dark Round Circles Treatment
PERIORBITAL PIGMENTATION DARK ROUND CIRCLES is a commonly encountered condition. Periorbital hyperpigmentation is caused by various external and internal factors. There are a number of treatment options available for periorbital hyperpigmentation. The aim of treatment should be to identify and treat the primary cause of hyperpigmentation as well as its contributing factors.

Periorbital hyperpigmentation (POH), also known as periocular hyperpigmentation, periorbital melanosis, dark circles, infraorbital darkening, is a common condition encountered in dermatology practice. It can affect an individual’s emotional well-being and influence quality of life.

POH is characterized by light- to dark-colored, brownish-black pigmentation surrounding the eyelids. It gives a tired look to the patient. Diagnosis is mainly based on clinical examination. It is important to differentiate the dark eyelid skin with shadowing due to tear trough. Manual stretching of the lower eyelid skin can help to differentiate between true pigmentation and shadowing effect. Although the former retains its appearance with stretching, the latter improves or resolves entirely. An increase in violaceous discoloration on manual stretching of the lower eyelids is due to thin eyelid skin or hypervascularity of lower eyelid. 

Wood’s lamp examination can be done to differentiate between the epidermal and dermal pigmentation. For dermal pigmentation, this contrast is less pronounced. Ultrasonographic evaluation can help to differentiate the vascular cause from the periorbital puffiness.

Various external and internal factors are possibly implicated in its pathogenesis. The causative factors include genetic or heredity, excessive pigmentation, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation secondary to atopic and allergic contact dermatitis, periorbital edema, excessive vascularity, and shadowing due to skin laxity and tear trough associated with aging.

Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Periorbital hyperpigmentation can be caused by rubbing and scratching of skin around the eyes and by accumulation of fluid due to allergy as in atopic dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis.
