Eye bags appear as puffiness or mild swelling in the area beneath the eye. This condition commonly develops in some people through the ageing process, as the surrounding tissues and supporting muscles start to weaken.
This can then cause the skin to relax and sag, allowing the natural fat pads in this area to move down into the lower lids, giving the swollen appearance. Collagen and elastin are in general decline throughout the face and body as we age. For the skin around the eyes, this can have more noticeable effects due to the skin being thinner in nature, compared with other areas.
Eye bags can also see a buildup of excess fluid settle in this area, making these swollen pouches look more prominent. Dark circles can be another condition that goes hand in hand with eye bags – caused either by the puffiness casting shadows, or thinning skin making blood vessels more visible.
Although ageing is the most common cause of developing eye bags, this concern can also be the result of: stress, eye fatigue, fluid retention, allergies, infection, lack of sleep, smoking, underlying medical condition or genetics.
It is no longer necessary to correct this condition using a surgical route, which can often lead to a lengthy recovery and painful side effects. At The Bloom Clinic, Dr Nandi’s less invasive solutions approach this concern by using cheek fillers, Sunekos skin boosters applied to the undereye region and medical grade skincare.
By adding volume to the cheeks it can replace some of the lost support for the eye area and reduce the sagging effect that is a contributing factor.
Restoring healthy properties to the skin through the regenerative nature of Sunekos skin boosters and nutrient-packed, medical grade skincare, helps the skin to regain its strong, youthful structure. This in turn can help to reduce the effects that ageing skin has had on this central focal feature.Book a Consultation
