At 36, I have permanently visible bags under my eyes. What are my options? Even well rested, the sagging never goes away no matter how well I apply my make up. I want to look as good as other women my age who, in general, are starting to deal with some crows feet, but not this. I am scared of surgery, so I want to know what my other options are. And if it would be surgery, what can I expect? Thank you so very much!

Eye bag Treatment Options
Thank you for your question about non-surgical treatment of under-eye bags.
There are many ways to tackle under-eye puffiness, lines, and/or dark circles. There are some skin care products you can use. Some laser treatments such as ErYag lasers can tighten skin under the eyes and help reduce fine lines. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) microneedling can also tighten the skin and help promote collagen production. Finally, you can camouflage under eye bags by placing fillers such as Juvederm Vollure or Voluma, or Restylane Defyne in the area.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

You ask a very good question. There are several things that can be done to improve the appearance of the eyes and reduce the prominence of the under eye puffiness or bags.
The skin tone can be improved with Thermage.
If there is extensive fine lines then fractional laser like Mixto is an option.
The third step would be to fill in the holllow area below the puffiness with Restylane injected on the deep layer- on the cheek bone. This is a technique that my wife - Dr. Lisa Airan and I published in 2005 after 5 years of perfecting and was also presented in the October issue of Vogue magazine in 2005. Lisa performed the injection on the Oprah Show- on Oprah's make up Artist.
The injection of Restylane last from 8 months to a year and a half and can make dramatic improvements in the appearance of your eyes.
