Frequently Asked Questions

Hollow Eyes Treatment can be performed using a number of techniques. However, please ensure that your Hollow Eyes Treatment is conducted by an experienced aesthetic doctor.

Sunken Eyes from Dehydration

Dehydration is a common culprit when it comes to sunken or dark skin around the eyes. This is because the skin around your eyes is very close to the underlying bone, and a lack of fluids can cause blood vessels to become more prominent.

Are Sunken Eyes Permanent?

Most cases of sunken eyes relate to the quality of an individual’s nutrition and healthy living. When these causes are corrected, sunken eyes can resolve without further treatment. This means that causes can be avoided or treated in good time to prevent the recurrence of sunken eyes. However, there is a chance that permanent sunken eyes can occur naturally as part of the ageing process, where elastin and collagen reduce over time. This can be resolved with the use of fillers which encourage new collagen to be generated.

What Causes Sunken Eyes?

Did you know that your eyes are the first part of your face to show signs of ageing? This commonly manifests itself as Dark Circles around your eyes. There are a number of causes, including discolouration, some of which can be traced back to genetics. For example, if your parents are prone to hyperpigmentation.

The skin around the eye is called the periocular region and is particularly thin. Allergies such as hay fever can commonly affect the skin around the eyes, making it feel tender or sore. Rubbing your eyes repeatedly can lead to the appearance of dark circles. Sunken eyes are common and to be expected with the depletion of volume as we age naturally.

Some other causes that can contribute to dark circles include lifestyle habits such as excess alcohol and salt, lack of sleep and dehydration. Discoloration is very difficult to prevent.

Tear troughs that are deep set can give the impression that a person is tired even when they have plenty of sleep. The tear troughs will recede as part of our natural ageing process, alongside a reduction in collagen and elasticity in your skin. Also, the cheekbones and eye socket bones also start to recede over time, resulting in a loss of bony support for the skin.

Sun damage is common as the skin around the orbit of the eye is particularly delicate. Exposure to UV rays without appropriate sun screen and protection will make the skin become loose and the texture uneven, further casting a shadow and making the eyes look sunken.

A high quality sunscreen designed for the face will make a significant difference in preventing sun damage. Being aware about sunscreen and making it a habit to wear will significantly delay the ageing process. Some simple protection, such as sunglasses and a wide brim hat can also assist in providing shade. This has the added benefit of protecting your eyes from the damaging UV light.

Can Sunken Eyes Be Reversed?

You’ll be glad to hear that sunken eyes can be reversed with a combination of good serums and dermal fillers. Our Hydrafacial has a specific pigmentation protocol to help with hyperpigmentation. All our consultations include a skin analysis, where we can look deeper in to your skin and understand what is causing your sunken eyes. We will then explain your treatment options and we can then agree a treatment plan bespoke to you.

Sunken eyes can a long-term problem but with the right treatments and skincare products, it can be brought under control.
