Resolved Question:

I'm a 45 year old male,non smoker. I've aged well with no obvious facial wrinkles. 2 weeks ago I woke up with 3 very deep sudden creases under each eye. It almost looks as if my under eye area has collapsed. Is there a possible health issue or is this an ageing process

I have had many months of sleep disturbance but these creases literally came overnight and I have slept well since with no improvement

Hi,thanks for the reply,please find attached photo. i don't smoke and never drink alcohol. There was a slight improvement today after upping my water intake although the lines got deeper again as the day wore on

I see the photo
I would use thick moisturizers under your eyes like Vaseline or lanolin or Aquafore ointment. These can be purchased at your drug store. And keep drinking plenty of water and fluids. Get regular sleep. This is not a sign of disease. I'm glad you don't smoke or drink alcohol.

That's great and although not pleasant it's nice to know it's unlikely a health problem. I do use moisturiser but will do with those suggested. Sleep and dehydration are the likely culprits alongside a 6 month old baby! Thanks again
