Eliminate Bags Under Eyes with these Treatments

Bags under eyes, mild swelling or puffiness in the eye area become more common as you get older. This is because when you get older, the tissues in the eye are including muscles that support eyelids get weaker. The normal fat which helps in supporting the eyes can also move to the lower portion, causing puffiness or bags. Fluid can also accumulate which further adds to the swelling. The problem is cosmetic in nature and it is usually not a sign of a serious medical condition. Let’s take a closer look at its causes and what you can do to get rid of the problem.

Causes of Bags Under The Eyes

Again, the problem is primarily due to aging which causes the tissue structures and support muscles to weaken. The skin also starts to sag and other factors come into play. Here are the other causes of bags under the eyes.

  • Fluid retention due to high salt diet, weather changes and hormonal fluctuations
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Allergies
  • Heredity – having under eye bags can be inherited from your parents

Eye bags usually don’t need treatment. There are simple home remedies that can reduce the problem but there are also more drastic treatment options for moderate to severe cases. Here are the best treatments for eliminating the bags under your eyes:

Anti-Aging Eye Creams

If you want an affordable and safe solution to under eye bags, you can utilize anti-aging eye creams. You just need to be careful in choosing a product. Thoroughly check the formulation of an eye cream before buying. Look for active ingredients that are proven to reduce eye bags such as Arnica Montana extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein and Eriobotrya Japonica Extract. There are also complete formulations that treat all aging signs in the eye area such as Eyevage from up-and-coming skin care company Solvaderm. It doesn’t just treat eye bags but eye puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles as well.

Medications

If the primary cause of the problem is related to an allergy, you can get a prescription from your doctor. Allergy medication will treat the problem quickly if it is caused by an allergy.

Treatments for wrinkles can also help reduce eye puffiness and under eye bags. Some of the most popular options are fillers and laser resurfacing which can improve the appearance of bags under the eyes dramatically.

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is the most effective and fastest option for removing severe eye bags. Excess fat, sagging skin and muscle in the area are removed through the outpatient procedure. However, it is expensive and there is a considerable amount of risk with the procedure.
