Say Goodbye to Eye Bags With a New Tear Trough Treatment

Under Eye Bags VirginiaIf you’ve been told you look tired when you weren’t really tired, besides finding this unflattering, you might be wondering just what causes these under eye bags.

For many, this is just an aspect of their face. Some people have baggy eyes. The skin is darker under the lower lid. It’s a little puffier. It’s all a function of fat deposits in the tear trough — and many find it very frustrating.

The New Tear Trough Treatment

Blepharoplasties are not a new thing. Upper and lower lid rejuvenation have been around for a while, and are actually starting to pass facelifts and rhinoplasties in popularity, amazingly.

A new treatment however, combines a lower lid rejuvenation with artful use of filler. Oftentimes, bagginess around the eyes begins to exacerbate with age, especially as the area around the eyes starts to hollow out.

Under eye bags might be a function of fat deposits underneath the eye — but it’s worsened when the cheeks start to hollow out. So the filler/lower lid rejuvenation combo is especially effective.

By making a smoother gradient in the cheeks at the same time that the actual fat and excess skin underneath the eyes is reduced, the bagginess of the eyes is significantly reduced and a much more youthful appearance shines through.

Choose the Right Provider to Treat Your Under Eye Bags

Patients are a good candidate for the treatment if they’re in good health and find that fillers alone are not sufficient to reduce the baggy-eyed appearance.

Besides appraising whether they’re a good candidate or not, patients are advised to find a highly experienced provider, as the skin underneath the eye is thin — making it a fairly sophisticated cosmetic procedure.

Counterproductively, a procedure improperly done can end up giving a puffy look — exactly what the patients were going in for treatment in the first place.
