Is There Any Way Other Than Surgery to Get Rid of Eye Bags, and Saggy Eyelids and Wrinkles Around Eyes?

Saggy eyelids


Non surgical treatments of the eyelids will only give minimal results if there significant aging issues present.  Botox can be used for crows feet and fractionated laser can be used for excess skin on the lower lids.  Retin-A can be used for fine lines.

Non-Surgical Eyelift


There are many non-surgical options available to rejuvenate the eyes.  For the lower eyelids the depressions or shadows can be smoothed with a filler material, usually Restylane.  This is an injection that can last up to a year or longer in this area and can create a very natural result.    For the fine lines and crow’s feet Botox or Dysport is the best treatment option.  These products temporarily weaken the muscles that make the wrinkles and are wonderful preventative agents as well.  The crepe or textural lines under the eyelids can be treated with a resurfacing procedure such as a chemical peel or laser to create a smooth appearance to the skin.

Eye Bags and Saggy Skin Solutions


There are lots of lunchtime treatments that can be used around the eyelids to improve them.  Botox and Dysport will relax the muscles and improve crow's feet.  Restylane under the bags and in the lower lid hollows will disguise the bags if not too big.  Peleve (radiofrequency and heat), GentleWaves (LED treatment), chemical peels and lasers can all be used to tighten and stimulate collagen.

Botox can help with the crow's feet area, but when you have too much skin, the only way to correct that issue is surgery.  Regarding the bags under the eyes, adding filler will only add more bulk to the area.  Fat pockets can only be removed with surgery.  Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeon (ASPS) for an evaluation, and to discuss your concerns.

Treatment options for eyelids


There are a few non-surgical options for methods to improve eye bags, sagging eyelids and wrinkles around the eyes.  In regards to eye bags, a filler can be injected underneath the area to help.  For wrinkles on the sides of the eyes, Botox can be used to reduce the lines.  And for saggy eyelid skin and wrinkles, sometimes laser resurfacing or chemical peels can be used.
