What are under eye bags?
Under eye bags result from puffiness or mild swelling under the eyes and increase in visibility as we age. As we grow older, the tissues around the eyes, including a few of the muscles that support the eyelids, lose strength. Bags under the eyes can produce dark circles, saggy or loose skin and mild swelling, all of which aren’t particularly pretty to look at.
What are the causes?
Aside from age, there are several factors that can amplify this effect. A lack of sleep, allergies, fluid retention, hereditary factors and smoking are all linked with bags under the eyes. Most of these factors are unavoidable, which is why medspas and dermatology clinics provide treatments to undo the damage done to the under eye area.
What are the available treatments at Nouveau Medspas in Gig Harbor?
In order to correct the sagginess and weakened support of this area of the face, Dr. Rubin uses facial fillers to add volume to the area just below the eye.* Belotero Balance, Juvéderm Voluma and Radiesse are all injectable dermal fillers that add hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body, to the face. The results will leave your face looking more youthful and full.* If you aren’t in love with the idea of longer needle injections, Dr. Rubin can also use AquaGold fine touch to deliver multiple tiny injections to the area underneath your eyes. AquaGold uses dermal fillers and BOTOX Cosmetic to improve facial skin.* To learn more about these treatments, check out the links below.
