Had it done over a month ago under eyes. I'm 44 and I take after my father's side of the family with the extremely tired looking eyes. I called them my bags but hollows probably described as well.
People asked me if I wasn't sleeping or if I was ill or had allergies all the time. Tried every home remedy for years (ice and green tea bags, allergy pills, creams including prep H. The Procedure: I did not bruise at all, only tiny marks where needle went in. It was performed by a dermatologist. He almost scared me out of it, telling me the possibilities included alot of bruising and swelling, would I be prepared to return to work like this...he was very honest and upfront and spent alot of time telling me all the cons and made sure I was prepared.
Used one syringe but some resty was left. My left eye needed more as he indicated this was not uncommon based on what side I sleep on. I loved the results at once and once again, Doc warned me next time I might not be as lucky with my lack of bruising. I think I did swell but the swelling was so much more attractive than the wells I was used to so it really was not an issue.
Pain was minimal, a little bit later on I felt tenderness but I was so pleased I did not care much. He said it could last 9 months. It was very emotional waking up the first few mornings and looking in the mirror at a bagless reflection. Very dramatic difference for me, I look much younger, healthy and rested. I hope it lasts as long as 9 months but I will be back for more when that time comes
