Dark Circles, Eye Bags, Tear Troughs, Eye Wrinkles
Patients that consult with us at Brisbane Skin frequently complain that exaggerated tear troughs or dark circles make them look old and tired. This is understandable, as one of the hallmarks of an ageing face is the area around the eyes. Find out more about eye rejuvenation and how to get rid of eye bags, see our approach to treatment in the information below.
Under eye bags develop due to a number of reasons. Whether it is genetics, ageing, fluid or lack of sleep, there are a number of ways we can help to improve the area and your confidence.
Tear troughs are usually not prominent in youth. As individuals age a combination of bone shrinkage, tissue volume loss and ligament tension cause the groove or trough to be more prominent. In some cases though it could also come down to genetic anatomy or be related to your general health and change in ligament tension.
Dark circles alongside eye bags and puffy eyelids can be caused by a number of factors other than ageing. Allergies and sinus problems, atopic dermatitis, capillaries, pigment and sun exposure can all contribute to dark shadowy eyes.
Eye wrinkles, are a natural part of ageing. Although genetics determine skin structure and texture, sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles, especially for fair-skinned people. The good news is that if your wrinkles bother you, you have more options than ever to help smooth them out or make them less visible.
