Eyes Tell Your Age

When we look at a new face, our gaze moves back and forth on the new face focusing on the eyes and the mouth. We then subconsciously classify that person as young or as old, based not only on what their face looks like, but more specifically on what their eyes look like.

The eyelids have the thinnest skin of the face as well as the most overused muscles of the face- blinking 20,000 times per day! Consequently, the eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of aging.

Signs of Sunken Eyes

Some of the aging signs that occur in the eye area include:

  • Thinning of the eyelid skin which is already the thinnest skin on the entire body.
  • Shrinkage of the fat pads below the lower lid as well as their downward migration and outward herniation.
  • Bone loss around the eye socket especially at the lower lateral edge which further causes displacement and herniation of the fat pads.

All of these changes result in the eyes looking sunken, hollowed, tired and old. For our Newport Beach Sunken Eye Treatment patients, seeing their eyes in the mirror can be quite distressing — particularly if they are persistent or worsening. It is no surprise that sunken eye treatments are one of the most searched for terms in cosmetic dermatology.

Dehydration is the most common cause of temporary sunken eyes. If you have had a wild night (or several) and aren’t taking proper care to rehydrate and moisturize, your face will tell on you. Typically, a few days of properly rehydrating and starting clinical anti-aging skincare only available through a physician office will eliminate dehydration and restore some fullness to your skin.

Treatment of Sunken Eyes

At Bonakdar Aesthetics in Newport Beach, Dr. Monica Bonakdar first determines the causes of your sunken eyes and then she customizes your treatment plan to transform you into a younger version of yourself. Your customized treatment plan may include:

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are the most common treatment option performed by Dr. Bonakdar for the treatment of sunken eyes. Newport Beach patients can trust Dr. Bonakdar to inject the right filler in the amount for your specific needs; plumping up the area beneath the eye and reducing the appearance of sunken eyes in a way that looks natural.

At Bonakdar Aesthetics, Dr. Bonakdar offers multiple FDA-approved dermal fillers, including the Juvederm family of fillers. Dr. Bonakdar is proud to be one of Allergan’s top 500 doctors for her skill and experience in using dermal fillers to solve cosmetic dermatology issues, including treating sunken eyes in Newport Beach.

Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

Microneedling is a unique non-invasive approach to reversing the look of aging skin. Because the area beneath the eye is quite thin and ages faster than the rest of the face, repairing this skin will help the appearance of eyes. Microneedling treatments result in speeding up of the skin’s collagen production much like the collagen production in young, healthy tissues.

Dr. Bonakdar is one of the nation’s most innovative microneedling experts and offers microneedling services that are unique to her practice with one of the only FDA-approved microneedling devices in the nation.


Newport Beach PRP patients use their own blood as a natural, no downtime anti-aging treatment to enhance the appearance of their skin.

PRP is obtained by separating the platelet-rich plasma form the blood during an in office blood draw. This liquid gold as PRP is often called is used for topical application after combination Microneedling treatments as well as solo injection application of the affected area. The body absorbs those extra platelets for a revitalizing effect. Ask Dr. Bonakdar about PRP treatments for sunken eyes during your consultation.
