The development of under eye bags can be caused by a variety of factors, including weakened structures that support the eyelids, lack of collagen, aging, fluid retention, and prolonged stress. As the structures that support the eyelids start to weaken, the skin in that area can become thin and saggy. This can be further exacerbated by the same recurring factors; lack of collagen, the natural process of aging, fluid accumulation, or sustained stress.
Many over-the-counter and drugstore products promise to treat under eye bags, however they can be costly and may not provide the desired results. Fortunately, there are non-invasive medspa treatments that have been proven to be effective in reversing the signs of aging in the under-eye area. Discover how to get rid of bags under your eyes at any age by exploring the 7 expert-approved treatments available.
HOW TO GET RID OF UNDER EYE BAGS WITH THESE 6 TRUSTED MEDSPA TREATMENTS
Skincare experts recommend a variety of treatments to get rid of under eye bags. From injectable solutions to topical treatments, there are several options available. Let’s take a look at the top under eye bag treatments recommended by experts in the field.
1. UNDER EYE FILLER
Under-eye filler, also known as dermal filler, is an effective treatment option for minimizing the appearance of sunken or discolored under-eye areas. The procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid solution directly into the skin. Filler treatment is specifically effective in treating under eye bags caused by thinning skin underneath the eyes, and bulging fat that commonly occurs below the lower eyelids as part of the aging process.
Under-eye filler treatment provides near-instant results by plumping, tightening and brightening the under-eye area. The hyaluronic acid in the solution also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is an excellent choice for both men and women who are beginning to notice the effects of aging in their under-eye area.
2. FRAXEL LASER TREATMENT
Fraxel laser treatment is a non-invasive option for addressing under eye bags that targets aging skin with thousands of microscopic laser columns. By penetrating the dermis (the deep layer of the skin), the laser treatment activates the body’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. This increased collagen in the under-eye area tightens and smooths the thin skin that contributes to the appearance of under eye bags.
The treatment results are both immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement visible within two to three months. The Fraxel Laser Treatment only targets a fraction of the tissue at a time, which allows for a fast healing process. However, there is an estimated recovery period of one to three days post treatment. If you are looking to return to work immediately after the treatment, you may consider an injectable option like Sculptra as an alternative.
3. SCULPTRA INJECTABLES
Sculptra is one of the newest under eye bag treatments offered at Bella Excellence MedSpa. Like Fraxel, Sculptra stimulates collagen production for more youthful, plump skin. However, rather than lasers, Sculptra uses an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to activate collagen under the skin.
“We have a relatively new product called Sculptra. It consists of the same material that makes up dissolvable sutures,” said , Dr. Yvette Suarez Medical Director at Bella Excellence MedSpa. “Only in this case, it’s made into a powder and injected under the skin as a slurry to help the body make fibrous protein. Sculptra is a great treatment because it lasts two or three years and takes only about four to six weeks to kick in,” said Dr. Suarez .
Like other injectables, Sculptra offers a speedy recovery period that allows you to resume daily activities immediately upon finishing treatment. Sculptra also helps to add volume under the eyes, so it’s best suited for men and women wanting to reduce the look of sunken under eye area.
4. PDO THREAD LIFT
If you’re looking for results similar to a facelift without the downtime, you may consider a PDO thread lift. This treatment involves the insertion of multiple variations of polydioxanone (PDO) absorbable sutures under the skin to achieve immediate lifting and tightening effects. Known as a non-surgical facelift, a thread lift can help achieve a tight, natural-looking under-eye area with progressive rejuvenation.
As the skin heals, the sutures dissolve naturally and stimulate collagen production in the areas where the threads were placed. The primary candidates for this treatment are men and women in their 30s to 50s, but anyone with sagging skin, particularly in the under-eye area, can benefit from this proven treatment.
5. MEDICAL FACIALS
Medical facials provide a clinical approach to addressing various skin concerns, particularly those related to aging and sagging skin. At Bella Excellence MedSpa, our medical facials are customized with professional-grade products containing high concentrations of active ingredients to effectively address under eye bags, fine lines, and wrinkles.
For example, a micro-channeling facial involves the use of tiny needles to deliver powerful anti-aging cosmeceuticals and neurotoxins, such as Botox and Dysport, directly to specific areas of concern. If you’re just starting to research ways to get rid of bags under your eyes, consider starting with a custom medical facial.
6. MEDICAL-GRADE EYE CREAM
Medical-grade eye creams are some of the most effective under-eye bag treatments that target darkness and puffiness. Unlike over-the-counter products, they contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, such as advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.), that penetrate deeper into the skin, thus reducing the appearance of sallow and saggy skin.
