Bags Under Eyes Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Bags under eyes is a common condition that is most noticeable when we start to age. Symptoms of this condition include saggy and loose skin, swelling, puffiness and dark circles. The ageing process causes weakening of the skin tissues that surround our eyes, which can lead to eye bags forming. While this issue is rarely a sign of a severe medical concern, it can cause us to feel less confident about our looks while making us seem tired, fatigued or rundown.
The direct cause of bags under the eyes, or dark circles is different for each patient and is often the result of various factors – and not just a lack of sleep. Broken blood vessels can create dark circles while, as we age and our skin loses volume, fat loss can cause hollows under the eyes that look like shadows. In addition to this, genetics can play a major role, as well as lifestyle habits such as alcohol consumption, diet and smoking. Together these factors will cause the skin to dehydrate, darken and sag, thereby aggravating the appearance of eye bags.
We offer a range of treatments to get rid of bags under eyes that result in a more refreshed & revitalised appearance for your skin. In the past, lower eyelid surgery – blepharoplasty – was seen as the only way to get rid of dark eyebags. Today, there are a number of non-invasive treatments that can reduce under-eye bags and puffy eyes.
One of the most common eye bag removal treatment is lower eye blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that involves removing excess fat and bulging skin tissues below the eye. Non-surgical eye bag removal treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic are a great alternative if you want to avoid surgical side effects and downtime.
Your best treatment option to reduce bags under the eyes will be based on a medical assessment of your condition at a personal consultation. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic we offer a range of eye bags removal treatments such as dermal fillers, Ultherapy, Thermage, laser treatments and advanced creams. We have a wide variety of treatments that can minimise the appearance of eye bags in a safe and effective way.
Dr Tracy Mountford’s highly specialist tear trough treatment uses dermal fillers to reduce bags under the eyes in a soft and natural-looking way. Patients will notice instantly visible results with this quick 30-60 minute treatment.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that is safe enough to use under the eyes. It can treat bags under the eyes by stimulating the renewal and replenishment of collagen stores deep within the skin to lift up and smooth out sagging or puffy tissues that are causing your eye bags to show through.
Thermage Eyes® is a clinically proven radiofrequency (RF) procedure that reduces the appearance of under-eye bags without any downtime. It can also decrease signs of wrinkles around the eyes while lifting and tightening the skin. Our Pelleve skin tightening treatment is another radiofrequency option we can use to minimise the appearance of eye bags safely.
Laser treatments like our SmartXide DOT™CO2 laser are great at brightening up the under-eye area and encouraging the production of new collagen stores to minimise eye puffiness. They are also effective at reducing any dark skin pigmentation under the eyes, while helping the skin to renew itself naturally over time.
The best eye creams for removing bags under your eyes are those that are medically proven and expertly researched. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we only offer our patients high-grade Cosmeceuticals from renowned labels like Obagi and Jan Marini to treat eye bags with maximum results. These premium quality skincare creams have higher concentrations of active ingredients than standard supermarket brands to give them the edge when it comes to the successful reduction of eye bags.
