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.
If you relate to this condition but still feel unsure, at Harpenden Skin Clinic we are always here to help and advise patients on the best possible treatment journey performed by experienced clinicians.
