Eye Bags Q&A
What are eye bags?
Eye bags are the mild swelling and puffiness that develops in the thin, delicate tissue under your eyes. Though you can develop eye bags from lack of sleep or too much salt, aging is a very common cause of the puffy, saggy skin.
Aging affects the structure of the skin and muscles under your eyes, making them weaker. Fat and fluids may accumulate in the weakened tissue, causing the distinct puffy under-eye look.
When should I seek medical help for my eye bags?
Though not usually a serious medical issue, eye bags can make you look unrested and older than you feel. Dr. Rostami specializes in cosmetic conditions that affect the eyes and offer innovative treatments for eye bags. If you’re unhappy about your eye bags and how they affect your look, contact Rostami OPC to schedule a consultation.
In addition to addressing cosmetic concerns, the doctors can also determine if your eye bags may be the result of a medical condition, such as thyroid disease, allergies, or an infection.
During your consultation, they review your beauty concerns and aesthetic goals and closely evaluate your eyes and lower lids to determine the best treatment for your eye bags.
How are eye bags treated?
Rostami OPC treats eye bags with various injectables, such as dermal fillers. Dr. Rostami is a national trainer for this minimally invasive treatment for eye bags. She was also one of the first doctors to perform the procedure with a cannula, which is a safer technique and causes less trauma to the delicate skin.
The doctors recommend fillers as a great option for treating eye bags because they can restore lost volume in the sensitive area. They most often use fillers composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a gel-like substance naturally found in your body.
When injected, the filler lifts your skin to smooth out your eye bags and reduce the appearance of dark under-eye circles.
Though fillers are preferred, Dr. Rostami may also suggest eyelid surgery to address your eye bags.
