Condition

Eye Bags

Eye bags refer to puffiness or shadows forming underneath the eye. They are caused by sagging skin, which is often a result of the ageing process.

Conditions

Information on Eye Bags

As we age, the muscles around our eyes weaken and tissues sag. The loss of skin tone allows fat to move into the lower eyelids, causing them to become puffy and swollen. Dark circles or shadows may also form underneath the eyes. This happens in part due to the underlying blood vessels becoming more prominent through the eyes’ thin and delicate skin, thus making the skin appear darker.

As well as ageing, eye bags can be caused by lack of sleep, smoking, allergies, and retaining fluid. Eye bags are rarely a cause for medical concern, yet people regularly seek to improve their appearance for cosmetic reasons.

We have a number of treatments available to reduce the appearance of eye bags at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
