Eye bags are very common, and fortunately there are treatments that can provide good results. When home remedies and lifestyle changes do not help, a visit to the doctor at Integrated Aesthetics can set you on a path to improve your eye bags.
What Causes Eye Bags?
If your eye bags are caused by genetics they may appear at a very young age. For others, aging is the primary culprit. The problem arises when the muscles around the eye gradually weaken and fat under the eyes pushes forward to make the lower lids appear puffy. Older skin becomes lax and wrinkled as a result of the natural aging process.
To make matters worse, excess fluid can collect in the space below your eyes to make your lower lids appear even more swollen. Sometimes smoking, allergies and not getting enough sleep can cause fluid retention under your eyes to make your eye bags more prominent. Salty food can also cause fluid retention.
