Come vengono trattati gli occhi affondati?
Gli occhi affondati come conseguenza di allergie o infezioni del seno possono essere trattate con farmaci. Gli antistaminici e le gocce d'occhio contro il contatore possono contribuire a ridurre i sintomi di allergia, mentre gli antibiotici a prescrizione sono talvolta necessari per curare un'infezione sinusale.
Lifestyle changes and home remedies
To help ease sunken eyes, try the following:
- Maintain a fixed sleep schedule and get enough sleep to make you feel refreshed the next morning.
- Invest in a quality moisturizer with sunscreen.
- Apply almond oil, which studies suggest might improve complexion and skin tone.
- Place warm, moist tea bags directly below the eyes; tea is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids and promotes blood circulation.
- Take two slices of chilled cucumber and place them on your eyes for 10–20 minutes to reduce irritation and add moisture.
- Apply cold compresses.
- Wear sun protection, including sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats when you go outside.
- Drink sufficient amounts of water.
- Avoid too much caffeine.
- Eat dark green, leafy vegetables.
- Quit smoking.
Take care when applying makeup. Before applying makeup, use a moisturizer to hydrate the skin and to ensure that your makeup sticks. Then apply a concealer with a yellow base that’s a lighter shade than your skin to help brighten the area.
There are both major and minor surgical treatments available for people who experience sunken eyes due to aging. Of course, no surgery is without risks, so be mindful and informed if you’re considering surgery.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane involve an injection of a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid into the tissue below the eye. A filler is usually painless and takes just a few minutes to inject, but it doesn’t last forever, so you’ll need to get the procedure redone every year or so.
Cosmetic surgery, including brow-lifts, blepharoplasty (lower eyelid surgery), and face-lifts can reduce the appearance of sunken eyes. These techniques are more invasive than dermal fillers and involve a longer recovery time. However, they can offer a more long-term solution to sunken eyes.
