Tear troughs and Eyebags

Home > Article >

As you age, one of the first places aging shows is around the eyes. Eyelid skin is very thin. Loss of collagen and elastin causes hooding and looseness of the upper and lower eyelids.

Sun exposure damages the skin and increases skin aging. Small fine lines that look like cross-hatching reflect the impact of sun damage.

Changes in the ligament structure, muscle, and skin below the eye result in festooning. This is the protrusion of fat from behind the muscle and ligament. People often describe it as ‘bags’ under their eyes. There can also be fluid in combination with the fat(called malar edema).

While surgery is often contemplated as a solution, it comes with high expense and significant bruising and downtime.
 
Injecting the tear trough area with specific formulations of hyaluronic acid is a simple, very affordable solution.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that hydrates skin and gives it ‘plumpness’ and radiance. It is lost with aging and hormonal changes.

Redensity 2 has the added benefit of vitamins and minerals that help skin cells brighten, and firm the skin. Glutathione and vitamins help improve the health of the skin and reverse some of the sun damage and visible signs of aging of the skin.
 
Filling the hollows around the ‘eye bag’ hides the appearance of it. The light now falls more evenly and the eye bag is hardly visible.


Hormones, specifically estrogen, influence skin laxity. Many women notice that their skin suddenly changes when their hormones change.

It gets thinner and drier. Fine lines and wrinkles increase in appearance.

Estrogen maintains collagen, which explains why low bone density also occurs after menopause. Your skin and bones have collagen.


Taking a high-quality collagen supplement is useful. However, a proper diet and healthy digestion is more important. The best diet for your skin health is one that is high in protein, good fats, and antioxidants.

To improve the absorption of protein for maximal use, try taking a spoonful of apple cider vinegar with your meals.

Vitamin C is essential to make collagen. Because of the increased sugar in juice and the removal of fiber and pectin, we do not recommend orange juice as a source of vitamin C. Supplementing your nutrition with high-quality nutritional supplements, including Vitamin C, is recommended since Vitamin C in high doses is not readily available in the foods you eat.
 

Another important factor that affects eye aging, is bone resorption. As the face ages, the eye sockets become larger due to the resorption of bone.

Calcium supplementation should be considered, however, it needs to be in small doses and in the form of natural salts, not calcium carbonate. Even more important than calcium, is Vit K2.
 
Without this essential vitamin, bone cannot be well maintained.
