Baggy eyes can be caused my many reasons, the primary of which is age. However, if you're in your 20s and noticing particularly puffy bags under your eyes, it's unlikely that you need to invest in anti-aging treatments just yet. There are many other reasons why these bags could be forming, most of which can be addressed through lifestyle changes. Below are three causes of puffy bags under the eyes, broken down into three stages, and how to address them:
- Lifestyle – For younger men and women with under-eye baggage, the cause is likely fluid accumulation under the eyes. This can bebrought onby drinking too many alcoholic beverages, too much salt consumption, not getting enough sleep or dehydration. Simply change these aspects of your life and you'll reverse this problem with your appearance, regaining your youthful shine.
- Collagen loss – As you start to age into your late 30s and early 40s, you might see bags start to appear that can be addressed through lifestyle changes. However, dermal fillers are an excellent way to boost collagen production in this area and eliminate bags in a minimally-invasive cosmetic way. This can be cost effective and done once a year to enhance your appearance.
- Age – Eventually age will begin to cause more severe collagen loss, resulting in more severe under-eye bags that may only be able to be addressed through blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. This procedure will help tighten the skinaround your eye and provide a more youthful appearance later in life.
