Puffy Eye/Bag

Double Chin

PUffy/eye bag


Bags under the eyes are often the result of temporary conditions and may be some combination of: lack of sleep, chronic stress, poor diet and/or fatigue which can result from illness or medications for example. People who suffer from allergies and sensitivities often have a bigger problem with bags under as well.

What are the causes of Puffy/eye bag ?


Changes due to the fat bag tend to develop gradually over time, though not always.


Age - As we age, the muscles supporting the eyelids sag, fat in the lower eyelid moves downward, and gravity generally shifts everything downward over the hills and valleys below the eye.


Genetics - Inherited causes tend to be long-term and difficult to resolve, and they are often a permanent problem without a natural solution.


Changes due to the fluid bag tend to be of a shorter duration and/or a more rapid onset.


  • Fluid retention. Nutrition, poor diet, and especially foods that increase fluid retention such as salty foods.
  • Allergies. Seasonal and other allergies, including food allergies.
  • Sensitivities. Other environmental sensitivities.
  • Lack of sleep.
  • Stress.
  • Symptoms



Bags under the eyes are seen as mild swelling in the skin below the eyes. How chronically the eye puffiness continues, really depends on the cause(s), and if these causes become resolved. Bagginess under the eyes may also be due to genetics, and in these cases, are difficult to resolve and may be more permanent. They may appear almost overnight, may develop over time, and may stay for as long as the underlying cause is unresolved.


Treatments that are available to treat undereye hollow

Dermal Filler

Fillers are an effective option for patients with tear trough hollows and under-eye bags. As we start to age, the area underneath the eyes, known as the tear trough area, becomes more prominent. The change in appearance often presents with dark circles and under-eye hollow, leaving one to look tired and exhausted.


In addition, hollowing under the eyes can expose bags, which make the appearance worse. Dermal filler injections help to normalise facial contouring around the lid-cheek junction and avoids the need for surgery.


Dermal fillers produce natural-looking, instant results. While the effect is noticeable immediately, the final result will usually be visible at around two weeks. This is because the skin needs time to relax, smooth and allow the dermal fillers to integrate properly with the surrounding tissue, achieving optimum hydration balance.


If your under-eye bags are severe, a blepharoplasty procedure may be more beneficial.
