Puffy eyes and eye bags can make a person appear sleepy, tired and even aged. In some cases, they don’t get better with a healthy diet or more sleep.
The good news is that there’s several effective ways to reduce puffiness around the eyes without resorting to surgery. A consultation with a skin specialist is the best way to determine which treatment option is best for your individual problem.
What Causes Puffy Eyes and Eye Bags?
To better understand how eye bag treatments work, it helps to know exactly what causes puffy eyes in the first place.
One of the most common causes of chronic puffy eyes is the loss of fatty tissue in the upper cheek area. This loss of tissue can be caused by rapid weight loss or just by the natural aging process. Genetics also play a role in eye bags. Some people are predisposed to have extra fat under their eyes.

Dermal fillers have quickly become the treatment of choice for eliminating puffy eyes and eye bags.
