We are living in an era where it’s all about the eyes. We are also living through some extra stressful times. Do you have signs of the times showing under and around your eyes? Here are three of the most common woes peering back at us in the mirror. 
Dark Under Eye Circles - there are so many factors that can contribute to dark circles, including stress and fatigue. Extreme fatigue, or just staying up a few hours past your normal bedtime can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. Sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show. 
Crow’s Feet, Lines and Wrinkles - crow’s feet are wrinkles that form at the corners of the eyes. Sometimes they can appear to be deeper than other facial lines and wrinkles. Do you have wrinkles on your forehead? Have you heard them referred to as worry lines? Now you understand. 
Under Eye Bags - just like other signs of aging, there are many contributors to the formation of under eye bags and many of them can be indirectly pandemic related. Do any of these sound familiar? Lack of sleep, poor diet, poor skincare routine. These variables can be leading to under eye bags. 
Is there treatment to reduce the look of your dark circles, crow’s feet and under eye bags? Short answer is yes. The only permanent solution is surgery. Thinking about injections to improve the look of your under-eyes? Think again. Injectables can improve the appearance temporarily. Are they worth it? 
Cost - surgeries and fillers can cost thousands of dollars and that is all out of your pocket. Cosmetic procedures are not usually covered by medical insurance carriers. 
Recovery - depending on the type of cosmetic treatment being administered, recovery time to normal activities can be days or weeks. 
Risk - all cosmetic procedures come with a risk. 
Possible complications for any surgical procedure include: 
Complications related to anesthesia, including pneumonia, blood clots and, rarely, death 
Infection at the incision site, which may worsen scarring and require additional surgery 
Fluid buildup under the skin 
Mild bleeding, which may require another surgical procedure, or bleeding significant enough to require a transfusion 
Abnormal scarring due to skin breakdown 
Separation of the surgical wound, which sometimes requires additional procedures 
Numbness and tingling from nerve damage, which may be permanent 
This article is not meant to sway you one way or another. It is assumed that any surgical candidate will discuss all the pros and cons with a qualified medical professional and make an educated, well-informed decision.
