Are Genetics The Reason You Have Eye Bags In Your 20s?
By. Dr Stephen Bracci
The goal of non-surgical dermal fillers is not to camouflage but to return the folds in the under eye area to their original position, thus making you look rested and more refreshed without appearing fake and unnatural.
One of the most common causes of eye bags for people in their 20s and 30s is familial genetics. But, before you start playing the blame game, here are three simple questions with answers you may need to know to explain why this is and three simple things you can do.
How do genetics and family history affect the appearance of eye bags?
If I rest well, eat well, exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle, will I be able to rid myself of the tired look my family and I have?
What Is The Recovery Time For Under Eye Filler Treatments?
What can I do if I have eye bags in my 20s and 30s?
1. Attempt to camouflage the creases under the eyes with make-up and eye creams. There are a wide variety of great concealers and over-the-counter products available, however, using them effectively for camouflage requires constant reapplication. Even with regular application, makeup and creams can never really mimic the natural under eye shape.
2. Another option is surgery. Surgically cutting and stretching the skin of the under eye area to smooth wrinkles is a treatment option that is waning in popularity. Today, people are choosing this less frequently because of budgetary restraints and the unwillingness to sacrifice their natural appearance. Surgically cutting and stretching the skin may do just that.
3. The third option is a non-surgical procedure. Non-surgical aesthetic treatments are now able to restore the natural, youthful shape of the under eye are using micro-injections with non-permanent dermal fillers. An experienced injector knows that the art of this treatment is the ability blend the look of the treated area in with the surrounding areas of the eyes and upper cheek section of the face. Doing this effectively and artfully requires the use of multiple types of fillers.
