Eye bags and puffiness around the lower eyelid area are a common concern, which can make the face appear tired and older. These bulges are filled with fat or fluid, and usually occur due to the fat tissue in the mid-cheek falling away from the lower eyelid. This makes the lower eyelid appear puffy in relation to the cheek.
Dermal filler injections are an effective medspa treatment to correct under eye bags and puffiness. Dermal fillers can improve the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek area, making the appearance of eye bags less conspicuous. Motykie medical spa provides this treatment for under eye bags to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and surrounding communities.
How the Filler Treatment Works?
Loss of volume in the mid-cheek area often causes the appearance of under eye bags and puffiness. As the mid-cheek continues to lose volume, the eye bags become more obvious because the volume underneath has fallen away.
Dermal filler gel injections can replace the lost volume in a completely non-surgical and minimally invasive manner. This means you take care of this procedure and be on your way. Yes there will be a little soreness and you do not want to go out and play some volleyball but you do not have to worry too much since this is a short and routine procedure.
With a targeted dermal filler medspa treatment, the puffiness can be smoothed, and the eyes will appear refreshed and more youthful.
Eye bags are typically present along with hollows in the tear trough region. Therefore, it is important to treat both the problems together by filling the mid-cheek as well as the tear trough with filler gel. The filler is injected directly under the hollow between the cheek and the lower eyelid. This will lift the tear trough to the level of the cheek and the lower eyelid, thereby creating smoothness in the area.
Filler gels placed in the under eye bag and tear trough areas will usually last for a long time. Just one syringe or less of dermal filler gel may be adequate to treat the area.
Choice of Dermal Fillers
Skin below the lower eyelid area and the tear troughs is delicate and sensitive. Therefore, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, which are biocompatible in character, are usually preferred for the treatment of under eye bags and puffiness. Hyaluronic acid based filler gels have a composition of chains of sugar, which are cross-linked to provide consistency to the gel. Therefore, the results are more uniform and smooth with HA-based filler gels.
One of the key benefits of HA-based dermal fillers is that the treatment can be reversed, if necessary. The medical spa treatment provider can inject a substance called hyaluronidase into the treated area to dissolve the filler gel. This will only affect the filler gel, and not the healthy skin or tissue.
An experienced provider will incorporate underfill rather than overfill the hollows below the lower eyelids to ensure safe and natural looking results. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for under eye bag and puffiness treatments.
