What Causes Puffiness?
• The technical term for puffiness around the eyes is “periorbital puffiness,” and is different than the sagging skin and build up of the padding of fat that naturally occurs in the aging process.
• It is due to the buildup of fluids in the cells in this area.
• The causes of this puffiness are many, and include: illness such as mononucleosis, sleep deprivation, drinking alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use.
• Other causes are eating too much salt which leads to water retention, crying (tears are salt water and add to the water retention), and allergies.
• If the puffiness around your eyes is sudden and extreme, seek medical attention.
For a more effective and permanent solution, Cosmotree Clinic offers some best dark circles therapy to reduce the appearance of dark circles and eye puffiness. Some of the more common methods include:

• Tissue fillers to conceal blood vessels and melanin that are causing skin discoloration beneath your eyes.
• Fat removal to remove excess fat and skin, revealing a smoother and more even surface
• Eyelid surgery:
Depending on what’s causing bags under the eyes, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may be a therapy option.
• During blepharoplasty , the doctor removes excess fat through an incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid or inside the lower lid.
• Stitch back the skin with tiny dissolving stitches. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient procedure.
Blepharoplasty can also treat:
• Baggy or puffy upper eyelids
• Excess skin of the upper eyelid that disturbs your vision
• Droopy lower eyelids, which may cause white to show below the iris — the colored part of the eye
• Excess skin on lower eyelids
