Undereye bags are pads of fat and skin that sag underneath the eyes. Many people use the term interchangeably with tear troughs or the deep depressions that extend downward from the corners of the eyes. Undereye bags and wrinkles can have a different cause, but they can still contribute to an aged and tired look.
Undereye bags and wrinkles are most commonly caused by aging. As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down and the skin loses its youthful support. The result is that it begins to sag and fall downward, causing wrinkles and creases. Sometimes, the underlying fat pads can sag too, increasing the appearance.
There are non-surgical options available for undereye sagging that don’t involve surgery. Our team will assess your goals and determine the right approach using our best options.
Plasma Pen is one of the best-suited options for delicate areas like the under eyes. It uses plasma energy to generate controlled wounds and stimulate healthy new collagen to grow. The result is tighter, more rejuvenated skin under the eyes, leading to a reduction in wrinkles and sagging.
RF Microneedling with Morpheus8 also generates tiny wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen but comes with the benefit of radiofrequency energy to further contract loose skin. With a treatment package, you can see a smoother and more lifted look to the under eyes.
Fillers are one of the best options for tear troughs and visible hollowness under the eyes. In some cases, fillers can help restore lost volume under the eyes, providing a more supportive base for the skin. Fillers can achieve a smoother, brighter look to the skin, especially when paired with other treatment options.
Although Botox® can’t necessarily help undereye bags, it can help prevent and reduce fine lines around the eyes. It works by blocking movement signals that cause creasing in the skin over time. Crow’s feet and other lines around the eyes can contribute to an aged and tired appearance, enhancing the similar impact of undereye bags.
Our team can help you develop the right at-home regimen to support the results of your in-office treatments. This typically includes our best medical-grade skincare products designed to prevent and repair volume loss. Additionally, we recommend returning for regular maintenance treatments after your initial package to continually stimulate new collagen and prevent sagging. As always, we encourage you to wear SPF 30+ daily as well to prevent photoaging. During your consultation, we’ll ensure you have a complete picture of your treatment package and what to expect.
