2 Ways to Get Rid of the Bags Under Your Eyes
- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
One of the most frustrating things about genetics or getting older is having dark circles under your eyes. Having dark circles for a day or two because you are sleep deprived is one thing, but if you have noticed that you have dark circles under your eyes even after a 10 hour night sleep, then it may be time for you to look into some options that we offer. Let’s take a closer look at one non-surgical and one surgical option. Read on to learn some more.
If you don’t want to have to get surgery and fi the bags under your eyes are caused by a loss of fat, then we may be able to build up the area underneath the eyes with some filler. Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are hyaluronic acid based fillers that are best at adding volume to the skin (especially underneath the eyes). During your eye treatment, we will make several tiny injections underneath the eyes to help fill in any sallowness and help you look more awake in the process.
If you have bags underneath your eyes that are not necessarily due to a loss of fat but more to genetics, then we may consider a lower eyelid lift or a lower blepharoplasty. During this surgery, we will remove excess skin from under the eye and tighten it to help get rid of the bags underneath your eyes and give you a more alert look. The great thing about a lower blepharoplasty is that results are longer lasting and the surgery is fairly quick.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Tarbet, she will take a closer look at the skin under your eyes, ask you some medical questions look at your previous history and then determine which option is best for you. Are you ready to learn more? Contact our office and call us at 425-455-2131.
