What insight into your life are your eyes giving?
Eyes are the windows to your soul, but it is all too common for twinkling eyes to become surrounded by signs of the life you have enjoyed.
Due to the delicate skin surrounding the eyes, lines, wrinkles and puffiness often appear as your skin begins to age.
This can alter the way that you look, making you look tired, or even sad. However, there are options to treat lines and bags around the eyes to help maintain a youthful appearance and reduce the appearance of lines and eye bags.
Non-surgical eye bag removal: What causes eye bags?
Bags under the eyes are caused by excess, or herniation of, eyelid fat bulging against the eyelid skin. This is generally a result of changes to the muscles around the eyes that support the structure. As a result the fat in the area moves into the under eye area causing puffiness.
Fluid retention underneath the eyes can also cause the appearance of eye bags or swelling beneath the eyes. Such puffiness can be caused by a lack of sleep or eating an excessive amount of salty food.
In such an expressive and focal part of the face, eye bags – and the puffiness they create – can impact your appearance. Many people will become concerned that eye bags make them appear older or tired, alter the appearance of their face, and highlight lines and wrinkles that have appeared in the area.
Can eye bags be treated without surgery?
The good news is that advances in cosmetic treatments have opened up a number of options for the effective treatment of eye bags. There are now several choices for non-surgical eye bag removal that do not require you to go under the knife or endure a long recovery period. These include:
- Dermal fillers
- Evidence-based creams
- PLEXR under eyes
When choosing cosmetic treatment for non-surgical eye bag removal always ensure that you choose a qualified clinician, who is affiliated to a professional body. This will give you reassurance that the procedure is safe, and that the treatment will be applied correctly to achieve maximum results.
Non-surgical eye bag removal treatments
Dermal fillers are used to smooth the surface of the skin and to add volume. They are used across the face, including in the eye area to help skin appear more youthful and rejuvenated. Applied using tiny needles, dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the body making it safe to use. The hyaluronic acid helps to add definition and volume, while also working to boost moisture in the area. Dermal fillers will leave the eye area looking defined, smoother and radiant.
PLEXR under eyes
As eye bags are caused by fat bulging against the skin, this also results in sagging skin. PLEXR is a cutting edge cosmetic treatment that treats the excessive skin through the process of sublimation, which turns a solid into a gas. PLEXR under eyes is an effective method of non-surgical blepharoplasty that can remove loose and sagging skin in eye bags as well as hooded eye lids.
Aesthetics clinics where a medically-trained professional works are able to offer clients pharmaceutical grade skincare that is scientifically proven to achieve results. These evidence-based creams can treat several issues related to ageing skin, including around the eye area. Specific creams have been proven to reduce the appearance of lines, calm puffiness and to increase the volume of skin.
Choosing non-surgical eye bag removal
Non-surgical eye bag removal is quick and effective. With little down time needed, you will be able to resume your usual activities in a very short space of time. If you choose PLEXR under eye treatment the results can last as long as surgery but without any risk to the eye area. The effects of dermal fillers can be seen within a couple of weeks and will last between six and 12 months.
