Eye Treatments | Bagginess, Puffiness & Dark Circles Under the Eyes
Many people are often concerned about bags under their eyes because of the way they make a person look tired or even sickly. Bags under your eyes are usually not serious. Most often baggy eyes are caused by the following:
- Excessive salt in the diet
- Fluid retention
- Sleeping too much
- Not enough sleep
Our bodies stop producing as many new skin cells as they used to as we age. Due to loss of hyaluronic acid, decreased collagen production, general thinning of the skin’s layers, and gravity, the area under your eyes can become very loose.
The skin under the eyes is really thin already and the decreased production of skin cells will make any existing bagginess or puffiness worse.
Sagging skin usually accompanies the aging process because the body stops producing as many new elastic fibers. The skin under the eye may begin to sag as elasticity is lost. The sagging skin is more likely to fill up with fluids.
When the bags under the eyes are accompanied by dark circles, leaky blood vessels could be a problem. There are tiny blood vessels beneath your ski that transport fluids and waste constantly.
These blood vessels can start to leak as we age, or as a results of poor nutrition. The hemoglobin and waste that is leaked are dark in color, causing the dark circles.
Because there are so many causes for dark circles and bags under the eyes, there are many different treatments available.
