Patients that consult with us at Brisbane Skin frequently complain that exaggerated tear troughs or dark circles make them look old and tired. This is understandable, as one of the hallmarks of an ageing face is the area around the eyes.
Eye wrinkles, a natural part of ageing. Although genetics determine skin structure and texture, sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles, especially for fair-skinned people.
Under eye bags can develop for a number of reasons. Whether it’s ageing, lack of sleep, fluid retention or genetics there are a number of ways we can help reduce the appearance of under eye bags so you can move on with your life with more confidence.
As we get older our natural collagen production decreases, volume and skin elasticity reduce causing our faces to change. One area that is commonly effected is our under our eyes.
Dark circles around the eyes can be caused by a number of factors other than the ageing process. Largely it’s a matter of genetics, with dark circles passed down from one family member to another. Dark eye circles aren’t usually a cause for medical alarm but they can make you look tired even when you are feeling well!
