Eye problems are usually complex and multifactorial and can affect people of any age. Dark circles usually form due to pigmentation and/or blood vessels showing through from beneath the skin, or by shadows formed due to volume loss. They are sometimes accompanied by puffiness around the eyes. Eye bags can be due to excess of fluid, or fat pad herniation. Tear troughs are usually due to loss of volume from loss of fat and bone resorption in the area. A lot of the problems we encounter are genetic. Ageing can also play its part as the skin loses collagen with age, resulting in crepey skin worsened by rubbing the eyes.
Allergies, exposure to the sun, dehydration, stress, smoking, alcohol and lack of sleep can all influence the appearance of eye problems. There are many treatments on offer to improve the appearance of the eyes. Fillers restore lost volume in tear troughs or help blend in eye bags and improve light reflection reducing darkness, Botox reduces wrinkles, ZO skincare can improve texture and colour around the eyes, whilst Felc treatment and Ultherapy can improve the texture and tightness of the skin.
