Eye bags treatment options
What causes eye bags?
If you are fighting eye bags for quite some time, it may be a sign you need to make a change in other ways.
What we often call eye bags is actually sagging skin under the eyes. It is a common cosmetic concern, usually related to the aging process.
Typically, under-eye bags are nothing to be concerned about, but they can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. and rarely a sign of a serious underlying medical condition.
As we grow older, tissues around the eye gradually weaken and sag. This loss of skin tone allows fat or fluid to shift forward into the lower eyelids, making them look puffy and swollen.
The quality of your sleep and lack of exercise can affect your physical appearance, including under-eye bags.
There may be other reasons, including:
Genetics – some people are genetically predisposed to have more fat under their eyes.
Allergies – may lead to congestion due to the fact that your lymph isn’t draining properly.
Lifestyle – this includes poor eating, smoking, and drinking alcohol. Also, too much protein increases the sodium level in the body, resulting in water retention.
Your doctor will want to rule out other possible causes that can contribute to the swelling, such as thyroid disease, infection or an allergy.
He or she may refer you to a doctor who specializes in ophthalmology, plastic surgery, or an eye surgeon (oculoplastic surgeon).
Several factors cause or worsen this effect, including not removing makeup, too much sun exposure, which can damage skin cells and the collagen that keeps the skin beneath your eyes firm.
