What is Under Eye Hollowness

Under eye hollowness is a common cosmetic concern that affects many people. It is characterized by a sunken or hollow appearance beneath the eyes, which can make a person look tired, aged, or even sick.

Under-eye hollowness can occur due to a variety of reasons, including:

  1. Aging: As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner, which can cause hollowness and dark circles under the eyes.
  2. Genetics: Genetics plays a role in the development of under-eye hollowness. Some people are simply more prone to it than others.
  3. Lifestyle factors: Lack of sleep, poor diet, dehydration, and smoking can all contribute to the appearance of under-eye hollowness.
  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as allergies, sinus problems, or thyroid issues can cause hollowness and dark circles under the eyes.
  5. Trauma or injury: Trauma or injury to the face, such as a broken nose or cheekbone, can lead to under-eye hollowness.

Treatments available

There are several treatments available:

  1. Dermal Fillers: One of the most popular treatments for under eye hollowness is dermal fillers. This non-surgical procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based filler beneath the skin to plump up the hollow area and restore volume.
  2. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves drawing blood from the patient, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it back into the under eye area. PRP therapy can help stimulate collagen production and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
  3. Fat Transfer: Fat transfer involves harvesting fat from one part of the body and injecting it into the under eye area to fill in the hollows. This procedure is more invasive than dermal fillers, but it provides longer-lasting results.
  4. Laser Resurfacing: Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that uses a laser to stimulate collagen production and improve the texture and tone of the skin under the eyes. This treatment can help reduce the appearance of under eye hollowness, as well as dark circles and wrinkles.
  5. Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to address severe under eye hollowness. This procedure, called lower eyelid blepharoplasty, involves removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the lower eyelids to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Treatment steps

The treatment steps for under eye hollowness may vary depending on the individual’s needs, but typically involve the following:

  1. Assessment of the area to determine the cause of the hollowness.
  2. Selection of an appropriate treatment, which may include dermal fillers, fat grafting, or surgery.
  3. Preparing the area for treatment, which may involve numbing the area with a topical anesthetic?
  4. Injection of the chosen filler material into the hollowed-out area.
  5. Post-treatment care and monitoring to ensure proper healing and optimal results.

Session :  Depends on the individual’s specific condition and the type of treatment chosen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Acne can be caused by a number of factors. Acne can be hereditary, it can be hormonal, and it can be caused by a testosterone increase during puberty. It is also possible for acne to be caused by certain medications, some makeup products, and even wearing items of clothing or accessories that place pressure on a specific area of the skin – wearing a headband for instance.

Smoking is also said to cause acne in older people. Whatever the underlying reasons as to why you have acne, it all results in one thing – hair follicles becoming blocked by sebum from surrounding sebaceous glands, and dead skin cells. These plugged hair follicles can either turn into whiteheads or blackheads, and if the (usually) harmless bacteria that lives on our skin then infects the follicles, you can even experience cysts, papules, nodules or pustules. None of which are any fun for the person having to deal with them.

Our skincare experts take time to get to know and understand your acne concerns and issues, and only then will they make an informed decision as to which acne treatment is the best for you. That could be:

You do not need to stop wearing makeup if you have acne. However, you should wear makeup that is non-comedogenic. This means that it doesn’t block the pores.

Not necessarily. As mentioned above, acne can be caused by a number of triggers, and however much you clean your face it’s not going to affect how crazy your hormones are being. Sometimes, cleaning your face too much can even contribute to acne as it can aggravate spots.

Furthermore, using alcohol-based cleansers can dry your skin out and this isn’t a good thing as far as acne is concerned. Despite what you may think, and even if you feel like you have excessively oily skin, it’s still important to use a moisturiser – just make sure you opt for a non-comedogenic one.

Everyone is different, but acne – more often than not – does eventually go away. For many, it’s puberty that can kick things off and acne often settles down when puberty does. However, acne can sometimes persist into your adult years. That said, our skincare specialists have worked with many clients who wanted their acne to disappear and felt like they had tried everything. As you will see from our success stories and testimonials, we have had hugely positive and effective results.
