What Causes Sunken Under Eyes?
The under eyes are often one of the first areas of the face to show age. They often can cause patients concerns at a young age, even when the rest of their face does not show any signs of aging. So, what causes sunken under eyes? And, what can treat them?
First, sunken under eyes can be genetic. The actual placement of your eyes in their sockets can cause a hollow look either under the eyes or around the entire eye. You can determine this if the sunken look has been present since you were young and also if others in your family have the same appearance.
Other causes are temporary or treatable such as lack of sleep, dehydration, a sinus infection, and allergies. However, other factors such as rapid or dramatic weight loss and smoking can also worsen or cause sunken under eyes. Aging is by far the most common and dramatic cause of sunken under eyes.
Options for treatment depend on your exact anatomy, but dermal fillers or fat transfer remain two of the most effective and popular options. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-324-1120 or reach out online via chat, contact form, and Price Simulator.
