Hi doctor,

I have had severe dark circles under my eyes for the last three years. I consulted a dermatologist two years ago and underwent treatment for a month. Currently, I have been applying Depiwhite contour gel for the past six months but have found no results. Please suggest any alternatives.



I am glad you chose icliniq for your medical-related queries.

I understand your concern.

Do you experience inadequate sleep or stay up late at night? Are you suffering from stress? Do you watch TV for a long time? Do you have any vascular disorders or a family history of such conditions? Do you drink less water? Please reply.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
