Juvederm can be used in certain patients who have under eye bags. It can also be used to treat loss of volume underneath the bags if necessary.

Usually fillers such as juvederm will correct the shallow depression under the eyelid bag but if the fullness protrudes past the cheek bone, surgical removal of the fat and tightening of the skin may be necessary.

 It depend on the cause,  This is determined during the physical examination.

One has to determine the cause, whether it is caused by loss of fat around the eye making the fat becoming more prominent, or actual fat bags.

Treatment has to be very conservative in taking out any fat , otherwise will end up with surgical look or the hollow look.

filling the tear trough may improve on the bags. Fillers can be used or fat .

Either way it need to be done by an expert.

Under eye bags are fat, and Juvederm can not get rid of them. Juvederm can camouflage the border of the bags and cheek along the bony rim.

Lower eyelid bags might represent a fluid buildup or fat herniation.  Fat repositioning is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance if fat has changed its location.  Fillers can be placed judiciously to smoothen the contour should a double bubble occur from the change in fat's position, but this would be a temporary fix only.

Juvederm or Restylane do NOT get rid of eyelid bags

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Lower lid bagginess varies enormously from a hint of convexity accentuated by the appearance of the Tear Trough depression to outright festoons (Google Buster Keaton's picture). Obviously the treatments for each would vary.

Juvederm is a filler and would add volume to any depression but most Plastic surgeons would not use it near the eyes due to its association with water and increased swelling. (This makes it excellent for the lips and wrinkles elsewhere). Restylane would be a better filler in the Tear Trough which would mask a mild lower lid convexity. Other than this, fillers cannot flatten real eyelid bags and various lower lid Blepharoplasty techniques may be needed.

Typically, I would recommend the patient see an oculoplastic surgeon for blepharoplasty to correct bags under the eyes. Juvederm is used to temporarily correct a sunken appearance to the lower eyelids. However, this is very patient dependent and carries some risks.

Juvederm can sometimes minimize the appearance of under eye bags

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Improvement of the under-eye area with fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane is highly dependent on the individual problem. If the bags are not significant, they can often be concealed by filling in along the groove from the inner eye that extends obliquely across the cheek (the "tear trough"). However, if the bags are larger and the skin is not tight, as is typical in an older person, it is probably not a good alternative to eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).
