Why do we get eye bags?

As the years pass certain changes occur in the eye area, there is an increase in size of the bony orbit and orbital fat, as well as a reduction in the ability of the body to keep fat away from the lower lid and around the eye and puffiness results in the lower eyelid area giving a tired, sick, old and sometimes drunk appearance.

Dark circles under the eyes are a common problem and can have a variety of causes. Often described as 'tired eyes' they can affect both men and women of all ages. 

What are the causes of eye bags and dark circles?

  • Dark circles and eye bags can be caused by issues of the skin, such as:- Volume loss of volume or the dropping of fat in the cheeks or under eye, laxity of the lower eyelid, 
  • thinning of the skin under the eye, bulging of fat under the eye as well as resulting from our lifestyle.

How can our lifestyle cause eye bags and dark under eye circles?

What treatments are available for Eye Bags and Dark Circles under the Eyes?

Depending upon the cause of the eye bags or dark circles single or a combination of treatments may be appropriate. The most common treatments for eye bags and dark circles under the eyes are:-

Non-surgical Face-lift

The Face Ultimate non-surgical system uses both galvanic and faradic micro-current to stimulate muscles to achieve a facial toning effect and improve the surface skin texture (Read more).

Skin Lightening Creams

Professional skin lightening creams which contain bleaching properties may be recommended where the dark circles are caused by melasma and sun damage (eg. hydroquinone, kojic acid, Vitamins C and K, green tea, and licorice). Over the counter creams do not contain sufficient 'active ingredients' to have any significant effect or improvement to the skin.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL). Electrolysis, Laser

When blood vessels (whether as broken veins or as dark purple or blue under eye circles) are apparent, IPL therapy (photo facial) or laser treatment may be the recommendation to reduce the dark circles (Read more).

Skin Resurfacing for Under Eye Dark Circles
