Best treatment for your under eyes
Under eye bags
Hi,The causes of bags when smiling may be a combination of prominent perioribital muscles, hollowing, skin type and laxity, and fat distribution. It would be best to consult a local eyelid specialist for the best options tailored to your eyelids. Some patients do well with fillers or botox to relax a prominent orbicularis muscle vs eyelid surgery, fat transfer or laser resurfacing. Hope this helps.
Non Surgical Eye Bags
Thanks for posting. It's great hearing from the RS community about their concerns. Subject to consultation, the best results can be discussed.
PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma involves the injection of a patient’s own plasma and growth factors in to targeted areas by a cosmetic specialist. The small injections of PRP can significantly improve the appearance of skin by regenerating collagen production, which can assist in adding volume, improving fine lines, scar improvement. PRP can also address the dark areas under the eyes.
Filler: Wrinkles, creases and lines in these areas can be treated by filling the skin with a specially formulated gel ‘filler’. This is injected into or under the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), pushing up and flattening the crease or wrinkle. There is a very wide range of products currently available and the most usual component in modern wrinkle fillers is hyaluronic acid. This substance is found naturally in almost all body tissues. When injected as a filler, it is immediately effective in correcting creases and is slowly absorbed over 6-12 months.
See how you go with those options otherwise, there is always surgical, which is below.
Lower eyelid surgery aims to address the bags under the eyes. Excess skin and removal or reshaping of the fat smooth’s the contour between the lower eyelid and the cheeks. Your cosmetic surgeon will assess if the procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic.
