What causes it

What causes Eye Bags?


As we age, the skin around the eyes becomes thinner, and the muscles and tissues that support the eyelids weaken. Additionally, fat that normally sits around the eyes can move down to the lower eyelids, leading to puffiness and the appearance of bags.


Some people are simply more prone to developing eye bags due to genetic factors. For example, some people may inherit a tendency for under-eye fat to bulge or have weaker skin elasticity in the eye area.

Fluid retention

Fluid can accumulate under the eyes due to a variety of reasons, such as excess salt intake, dehydration, or hormonal changes. This can lead to swelling and puffiness around the eyes.

Lack of sleep

Not getting enough sleep can cause fluid to accumulate in the eye area, leading to puffiness and bags under the eyes.

Eye bags are treated with a combination of lifestyle changes, home remedies and aesthetic procedures.

Treatment Options

Dermal filler is a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin where the main ingredient is Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body. Dermal filler can add volume to sunken areas under the eye and at the same time mask the appearance of eye bags. 

Eye bag removal surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty, helps to correct loose skin, excess fat, and wrinkles of the undereye area. It involves removing fat deposits under the eyelids so that eyes appear fresher and brighter. 

Similar Conditions

Dark eye circles refer to the discoloration or hyperpigmentation of the skin around the eyes. It typically appear as dark, sometimes bluish circles or shadows under the eyes.

A single eyelid is an eyelid shape that doesn’t have a crease which is typically a facial feature of Asian people.
