The eyes are a powerful tool when communicating and under eye bags can leave you looking tired and lacking of energy.
What causes Eye bags?
Contrary to popular belief, lack of sleep exacerbates eye bags but is not the cause. The main causes of under eye bags include genetics, misplacement of fat and gravity. With age thin tissue under the eye area weakens and loosens, as well fat beneath the eye area increases, this along with gravity creates baggy lower lids.
What treatments are available?
Carboxy therapy is a great treatment where carbon dioxide is injected into the eye area to promote oxygenation of the area and increased blood flow. If the eye bags are due to increased fat in the area, then mesotherapy injections can be used to dissolve the excessive fat causing the bags.
What exacerbates the condition?
Lack of sleep, as well as rubbing of the eye area, pollution and salty foods, that cause water retention, can make under eye bags appear worse.
