DROOPY EYELIDS / DARK EYE RINGS

Dark eye ring or eye bags can be a heredity problem or due to insufficient sleep. Those with eczema or allergic rhinitis may also have more prominent dark eye rings. It becomes more prominent as we age due to loss of skin elasticity and thinning of skin around the eyes. This is a common problem and is frequently described as "tired eyes". Most seek treatment as the dark eye rings make them look much older than their years. It affects both men and women equally.

Droopy eyelids can make one look sleepy all the time. It may also affect one's vision as the eyelids cover part of the visual field. FDA approved Thermage eyes treatment is able to lift the droopy eyelids without surgery.
