Can Under Eye Bags be Banished with Dermal Fillers?

Juvederm

As an unfortunate side effect of aging and genetics, many people struggle with the issue of under eye bags. The persistent puffiness may be somewhat affected by stress, sleep, and diet. However, most people with sagging, bagging lids find no relief even with a healthy lifestyle.

Under eye bags reflect the accumulation of fat on the lower lids. This problem is exacerbated when collagen breaks down and the delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner. Many people try to minimize the appearance of bags with expensive eye creams. The sad fact is that no topical product has been proven effective to significantly reduce or even control this problem.

Under Eye Bags: Considering all Options

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, has a long history of success at reviving the eyes. In one procedure, many people achieve the look they want and never need a re-do, even though the aging process continues. With the development of numerous fillers and wrinkle-reducing solutions, additional options can also be considered. It is important to consult with an experienced physician to ensure that you understand what is possible for your unique structure. Dr. Tresley performs eyelid surgery, as well as eyelid rejuvenation with Botox and dermal fillers. He discusses the value of each during patient consultations.

Dermal Fillers for Younger-Looking Eyes

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm®,  Radiesse® and Restylane®  are effective at treating lines and wrinkles around the eye. This is because these products lift sagging tissues, and stimulate collagen, which gives longevity to the results of a single treatment.

To reduce the appearance of under eye bags, fillers are inserted into the curved depression that lies just above the cheek. In addition to building up the line itself, the cheeks may also be enhanced to further reduce the visibility of puffiness beneath the eye. Using expert technique, the Dr. Tresley achieves a more natural contour between the cheek and the eyelid, making bags all but disappear.

Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation has become increasingly popular. To see how your eyes can look younger, and reveal your inner zest for life, call 847-291-6900.
