Puffy Eyes

When the skin around the eye area looks swollen or enlarged, we say they are ‘puffy’. The eyes are very sensitive, as is the skin surrounding them. Puffy eyes are caused by a build-up of fluid in and around the eyes and can be caused by a number of factors.


Information on Puffy Eyes

Allergies to things such as animal fur or pollen can cause the eyes to swell. Crying also results in puffiness, because when watery tears meet the eye tissue that has a high salt content it can cause swelling. As we age, the supple skin that usually supports the eye loses volume, causing it to sag, creating a puffy effect.

Age-related and genetic puffy eyes do not pose any danger to health; however, some people elect to have surgery or other cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes. At Harpenden Skin Clinic, we offer non-surgical aesthetic treatments that are suitable for treating puffy eyes.
