Concerned about Eye Bags?

Eye bags under the eyes are a common cosmetic concern. Discover the options available to you.

What causes Eye bags?

Eye bags are puffiness and swelling of the skin that tend to hang in pouches under the eyes. There are a number of common causes which include general ageing. As you age, the fat pads beneath your eyes descend due to gravity, causing the skin of the lower eyelids to sag. Another common cause is fluid retention, this can be exacerbated by modern lifestyle factors like disturbed sleep, high salt intake, poor diet, alcohol consumption, and smoking.

Finally, allergies can play a part. If you suffer from allergies and frequently rub your eyes, this can irritate the skin and worsen the formation of bags.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about Eye Bags

Does Lack of Sleep Cause Bags Under the Eyes?

Without enough sleep, your body lacks the optimal 7-9 hours needed for restorative processes, like regulating water retention levels. This can lead to dark circles and an unhealthy complexion.

How Can I Remove Eye Bags Permanently?

Surgery is the only permanent solution to remove eye bags by eliminating excess skin and bagginess. This option is expensive and requires about two weeks of recovery time, leading many to seek less invasive treatments.

What Are the Best Non-Surgical Treatments?

Most non-surgical options aim to brighten the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of bags:

Polynucleotides: These anti-inflammatory biostimulators treat dark circles by boosting collagen and elastin and enhancing hydration. A brighter, firmer eye area can be seen 2-4 weeks after treatment, with optimal results in about three months. Maintenance treatments are recommended every six months to a year.

Mesotherapy: A needling treatment that brightens the skin under the eyes by injecting a combination of hyaluronic acid, ruscosides, vitamin C, and antioxidants. This improves microcirculation, elasticity, and drainage, aiming for a rejuvenated, smoother appearance.

Dermal Fillers: Under-eye fillers can reduce the appearance of eye bags by adding volume. However, they might worsen fluid retention issues and are not suitable for heavy bags of loose skin.

Do Men Get Eye Bags?

Yes, eye bags can be just as much of a problem for men as they are for women.
