Prominent eye bags

There are other more appropriate and effective treatments for under eye bags than eMatrix which causes subtle skin tightening in this area. If it is just subtle tear troughs, fillers may be appropriate. If it is prominent fat pads, lower lid blepharoplasty by a plastic or oculoplastic surgeon may be appropriate.

EMatrix and eyebags

eMatrix can tighten skin, however the cause of eye bags are multifactorial. An assessment is need to determined the cause of eye bags- including fat herniation, festoons (wet or dry), volume loss around the area, lax skin, strong eye muscles (hypertrophic obicularis oculi). Most often eye bags are due to a combination of factors, and hence I always address the CAUSE of bags, in some cases lasers can help, in other cases Botox (for over active muscles) or most commonly fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm for volume loss. Hope this answers your question- its not about the device is about the method to treat the cause. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia. 

EMatrix and the Eyes

eMatrix has a unique piece which tightens the skin under the eyes and produces new collagen and removes fine lines.  However, no laser will remove bags under the eyes since this is fat which needs to be surgically removed.  Best, Dr. Green

EMatrix around eyes

eMatrix can be used to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles around the eyes. It can make the under-eye area look smoother, but if you have an area that puffs out like a little pillow, the eMatrix will not remove it. Those are called festoons, and surgery is the most effective treatment for that.
