Eye bags are a concern that affects the area beneath the eye / lower eyelid. They are mainly experienced by adults as they get older, often finding they’re significantly developed by the age of 40+.

What Are Eye Bags?

This concern typically produces a tired look to the upper face as puffiness and sagging skin appears. For many people, the bags are more pronounced upon waking up, when fluid has accumulated beneath the eye. In this instance, their appearance will start to lessen within minutes as the person begin to move around.

They may often be accompanied by other age-related eye concerns, such as: wrinkles (crow’s feet), droopy upper eyelids, dark circles and tear troughs. When dark circles are also present, it is often the case that the puffiness / hollow areas (tear troughs) associated with eye bags are casting shadows beneath the eye.

What Are the Causes of Tired Eyes?

As ageing is the main contributor, we need to consider the following as common causes: thinning skin, weak facial muscles and shifting fat pads beneath the skin. When they are a short term concern, factors including: allergies (such as hay fever), irritation, fluid retention and lack of sleep may be possible causes.

What Is the Treatment for Eye Bags?

Improving the look of tired under eyes can be achieved through a cosmetic procedure known as lower blepharoplasty. This surgical approach removes excess skin from beneath the eyes to restore a refreshed look. Reducing their prominence can also help to improve other related concerns, such as dark circles and tear troughs.
