5 Quick Fixes for Puffy Eyes

Puffiness around the eyes is a common problem that can result from alcohol intake, salty foods, and even crying. If you have persistent signs of aging around the eyes, we recommend an eyelid procedure or skincare regimen.

However, for temporary puffiness around the eyes, there are quick and easy fixes that you can use to get on with your day. A recent post by the beauty experts at RealBeauty.com highlights six easy ways to temporarily reduce the appearance of puffy eyes.

Caffeine. When applied topically, caffeine can help to get rid of bags under your eyes. It works by drawing water away from the skin. This creates a tighter appearance. If puffiness is a persistent problem, you may wish to consider purchasing an eye cream that contains caffeine. However, for a quick solution, you can apply cool teabags to your eyelids for 5 minutes.

Witch Hazel. Often used as an astringent, witch hazel has a variety of skincare applications, and can be found at most drugstores. It was used for centuries by Native Americans to treat swelling and inflammation, and was adopted by New England settlers early in our country’s history. By applying cotton pads soaked in witch hazel, you can reduce the appearance of puffiness.

Is Breastfeeding the Only Cause Of Droopy Breasts?

As we all know, pregnancy and breastfeeding can have a big effect on women’s breasts – leaving them feeling saggy and deflated. But are pregnancy and breastfeeding the only causes of drooping breasts? A new study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal says no. In fact, there are a number of different factors that can lead to droopy breasts over time.

Like many studies, this one began by comparing identical twins. In 2009 and 2010, 161 pairs of identical female twins attending the Twins Days Festivals in Ohio had their breasts photographed. Researchers compared the photographs, while accounting for the twins’ different life experiences. They found several factors that can result in drooping breasts.

Your breast skin and tissue can become stretched due to hormonal and weight changes associated with pregnancy, breastfeeding, or simply weight gain. Once the skin becomes stretched, the breasts sagging droop. The researchers also found that smoking and alcohol use can contribute to saggy breasts.

8 Popular Alternatives to the Facelift

Many of my new patients are uncertain whether facelift surgery can really help them. In fact, facelift surgery can only treat 2 out of 4 major signs of facial aging – sagging skin and wrinkles. The other two major signs of aging – uneven skin texture and pigmentation, and loss of volume –are left virtually untouched after a facelift.

There are many different facial rejuvenation procedures. Some provide the lifting benefits of a facelift to a more localized part of the face. Others treat signs of aging that cannot be resolved through a facelift. This post will break down some of the different treatments that we offer at the Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center – so that you can think beyond the facelift.

Sagging skin. The brow lift and eyelid surgery can treat sagging skin and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. Unlike the facelift, these surgeries are focused on one particular part of the face. For less severe cases of loose skin, the Aluma Skin Tightening System is an advanced laser treatment that can provide smoother, firmer skin.

Uneven skin texture and pigmentation. These common signs of aging are often caused by UV radiation over many years. For smoother skin and even tones, sometimes little more than a surface treatment is needed. Skin resurfacing and IPL photofacial are both ideal treatments for sun damage.
