Under eye bags can be a source of embarrassment for many patients, especially if they make you look tired, angry, or old. Whether you have under eye bags due to aging, genetics, or sun exposure, it can be difficult to get rid of them with at-home skin care alone. Thankfully, there are a number of temporary and permanent eye treatments available to reduce the appearance of under eye bags and dark circles.
If you are looking for a noticeable improvement in a short amount of time, there are several non-surgical options to choose from. At Burgess Plastic Surgery, we offer the following treatments for under eye bags:
- ThermiEyes® — Utilizing temperature controlled radiofrequency technology, this treatment is a great way to stimulate collagen with no downtime. ThermiEyes® gently lifts the areas around the eye over time, requiring only 3-6 treatments.
- SmartSkin™ CO2 Laser (Madonna Lift) — This skin resurfacing treatment uses a laser to emit pulses of energy over the treatment area to encourage collagen growth. While the procedure takes 30-60 minutes, it can effectively address wrinkles, lines, and dark spots under the eyes.
- Dermal Fillers — In many cases, under eye bags can be caused by a loss of volume, leading to a tired look. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a natural chemical produced by the skin, to restore fullness under the eyes and reduce hollowness.
All of these options, although temporary, provide quick, noticeable results in just a few treatments.
If you are looking for the longest-lasting results possible, Dr. Elisa Burgess can perform a blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery. This is the ideal treatment for patients who have severe bags or drooping eyelids that won’t go away with non-surgical procedures. A blepharoplasty is the most effective way to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the lower eyelid and only requires two weeks of healing.
