Thank you for putting up your query. Most common causes for puffiness under the eyes could be lack of sleep, overworking your eyes as in computer work and sometimes hereditary also. Other causes can be systemic diseases like kidney, BP and heart problems. There are various approaches to such problems. .giving adequate rest to the eyes, applying cold compresses, reducing the hours spent on digital screens and applying tear substitutes for dry tired eyes.
I, as an oculoplasty surgeon, in addition, evaluate such patients, if the puffiness under your eyes is causing a significant cosmetic blemish. The available options are dermal fillers or blepharoplasty procedures.
Hope this helps.

Hi there...Mild to moderate dark circles often respond well to simple and inexpensive treatments...Try a cold compress, two chilled teaspoons or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a soft cloth to temporarily reduce dilated and discolored under-eye blood vessels....Elevate your head with two or more pillows to prevent puffiness that develops when fluid pools in your lower eyelids.....Although short nights don't usually cause under-eye circles, a lack of sleep makes you paler and more hollow-eyed, so shadows and circles you already have become more obvious...Consult dermatologist for further help.
