Superficial location of blood vessels accompanied by thin skin over orbicularis oculi muscle . It gives a violaceous appearance and is increase when the skin is stretched.
When the dark circles are due to repeated rubbing and scratching as seen in atopic dermatitis or allergic contact dermatitis . The drug induced causes also fall in this category.

It has been proven that ultraviolet radiation and use of blue light in form of smartphones and computer systems can aggravate perioorbital hyperpigmentation. Lack of sleep , stress, alcohol overdose and smoking can aggravate POH.

These are pigmentary demarcation lines which separate hyperpigmented areas from lighter areas . Most of the women especially after pregnancy complain of accentuating of these butterfly shaped areas.
