Why do you have under eye hollowness?
Under eye hollowness or sunken eyes is a common sign of aging that occurs when the fat and collagen that normally keep the under eye area looking plump begin to diminish.
There are several factors that can contribute to the development of under eye hollowness with age, including:
- Loss of collagen: Collagen is a protein that provides structure and support to the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and volume.
- Genetics: Some people may be genetically predisposed to under eye hollowness, regardless of their age.
- Lifestyle factors: Certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking, poor nutrition, and inadequate sleep, can contribute to premature aging and the development of under eye hollowness.
- Sun exposure: Prolonged sun exposure can damage the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers, leading to premature aging and the development of under eye hollowness.
- Volume loss: As we age, we naturally lose volume in the fat pads that support the under eye area, leading to a hollow appearance.
What can you do about it ?
There are several derma-based treatments that can be used to treat under eye hollowness, including:
- Dermal fillers: Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, can be injected into the under eye area to add volume and improve the appearance of hollows. The results of dermal fillers typically last six to nine months.
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: PRP therapy involves injecting a patient’s own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors, into the under eye area. This can help to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of under eye hollowness.
- Micro-needling: Micro-needling involves using tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, which can stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of under eye hollowness.
