Christel Tirrell asks:
I have terrible dark circles under my eyes- born with it... I tried every cream on the face of the earth ... Nothing, nothing helps. Do I have to live with it - it is looking worse and worse with me getting older and more wrinkled. I have a great skin - however the dark circles- which shows when I am tired, menopausal etc... is so bad. what can I do??

Dear Christel,
From what you're describing and what I can see in your picture, you're very good candidate for lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This will address skin redundancy and depression which is the cause of shadowing and the visual elements of dark circles in the lower eyelids. Unfortunately, creams will not address this condition.

Often makeup it the best answer. If it isn't shadows from bags, then makeup might be the answer. Get and in person consultation first.
