How To Treat Puffy Eyes

Our eyes are one of the first things people notice about us. So its no surprise that people with puffiness under the eyes, or dark circles feel self conscious. It’s not just late nights or poor eating which causes puffy eyes. For many puffy eyes can be blamed on genetics.

Dr Drielsma reveals four ways to help combat puffy eyes:


A diet high in processed foods, fatty foods, salt and alcohol can cause puffiness around the eyes. A balanced diet and drinking plenty of water can help make a difference.


Eye creams can also be very effective in reducing under eye bags and dark circles. But it’s essential to use specific care for the most delicate area of your face. Our Medik8 Skincare range has a number of day and night eye cream together with a powerful night serum charged with a multitude of benefits to make your eye area appear bright and revitalised.


Dermal fillers to the tear trough area can be very effective. Your tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek which can become wrinkled and hollow as we age. Fillers can help smooth and restore lost volume to lower eyelid and are a great non surgical way to treat the area with very natural results.


For those of you who have tried eye creams and dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of your saggy eyelids with minimal or short term results than the only effective way to solve the problem is with cosmetic surgery. Blepharoplasty is particularly effective for those of you with saggy or overly large fat pads around the eyes that are caused by genetics. This procedure is very common for women and men and results in a much fresher, youthful and natural eyelid appearance. Blepharoplasty can be performed either lower eyelids, upper eyelids or both at the same time. Excess loose skin around the eyes is removed. Fat transfer to improve hollowness can also be done at the same time.
