Under eye treatment
There are many options available depending on the extent you are wanting treatment. You can consider filler to help contour the area. There are also lasers to improve the texture and quality of the skin. There are products on the market especially designed to address this area. I encourage you to meet with a plastic surgeon in your area to discuss which options may be best for you.
Best Options Available
Fillers, lasers, and microneedling/PRP can improve under the eye. My patients try to get non surgical treatments to avoid surgery. We use PRP and stem cells there often. I suggest consulting with an expert to develop a treatment plan best suited for your short and long term goals. Best, Dr. Emer.
Treatment of Puffiness Beneath the Eyes
Puffiness beneath the eyes is caused by either forward protrusion or bulging of eye-socket fat pads, or sagging of the cheek fat pads or generalized loss of facial fat volume as we age, leading to a groove referred to as the 'tear trough deformity' or 'nasojugal groove.' Treatment of the puffiness is best accomplished by sculpting of the fat pads through a delicate incision inside the lower lid. Treatment of the tear trough deformity is accomplished by replacing the volume with either dermal fillers or the transfer of fat from other areas of your body, such as around your umbilicus. In our office we prefer fat transfer as it is 'permanent' understanding that ALL fat in our faces tends to reduce as we age.
