It is true that the eyes are the window to the soul. The eyes can be a reflection of emotions and even the physical condition of a person. The natural effects of ageing, however, can diminish the glow of one’s eyes and make them look tired and haggard. Women are especially conscious of this condition. Dark under-eye circles and saggy eye bags are often some of the most common issues ailing women today.
This is no surprise in a society that gives more and more value to a person’s beauty. Perhaps there is no harm in that, since how a person looks on the outside impacts confidence and overall well-being. To address the growing concern of women to look better and remain young, cosmetic surgeons and beauty clinicians are finding better ways to meet the demand with less invasive yet more effective procedures.
Are there natural remedies for saggy under-eyes and dark circles?
Ageing causes the skin under the eyes to lose fat and collagen. As a result, the skin will look hollow and sag. In some cases, genetics can also affect the under-eye area and someone in their 20s can already suffer from this condition. If you search online, you can find many natural remedies such as cucumber slices, ice, cold potato slices, even tea bags. These may be effective temporarily, but if you’re looking for more permanent solutions, you may need to consider other options. How about under-eye creams and serums that are so popular today? Like natural remedies, it will take time to see results that are oftentimes minimal and also temporary.
Have you ever thought of a cosmetic eyelid surgery for your droopy eyelids? Similar to, rhinoplasty or hair transplantation. As mentioned above, ageing causes saggy eyelids, especially due to gathering of fat under and over your eyes. So, a cosmetic eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty removes the excess amount of skin, fat or muscle of your eyelids and thus helps to regain your normal shape. If you are considering for a permanent solution, a surgery might help.
Non-invasive cosmetic surgery or tear through fillers
Cosmetic procedures such as facelifts have been the go-to option for many women in the past decades. But the risks associated with facelifts caused a decline in the popularity of cosmetic surgery in recent years. In the UK alone, there has been a 40% decline in the number of cosmetic procedures done since 2016. One of the reasons for the decline is the increasing demand for non-invasive procedures such as the use of tear trough filler to treat saggy under-eyes.
What is a tear through filler?
Tear through fillers often consist of hyaluronic acid that is injected around the eye and cheek area to plump it up. Since hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, it is considered safe and effective. Results are instant and may improve after several days. Along with other non-invasive cosmetic procedures, fillers do not require lengthy recovery and can be considered a “lunchtime procedure”. The results are amazing and will last for a long time. Do keep in mind however that this procedure is not permanent since hyaluronic acid will be metabolised by the body over time.
The cost of the procedure depends on the volume of the filler required to get optimum results. The range usually starts from 500. As with any cosmetic procedure, you should always look for a trusted clinic that specialises in cosmetic procedures for safer results.
