What It Is
As you age, it is common to experience mild swelling or puffiness under the eye area. This is because the tissue that surround your eyes, including the eyelid muscles, weaken with age. The eyelids appear puffy because the fat that normally helps support your eyes move to the lower eyelid. Swelling can also occur when fluid accumulates in the space below your eyes. Symptoms of bags under eyes include dark circles, saggy or loose skin, and mild swelling. Though not a medical concern, under eye puffiness can be bothersome and persistent. Fortunately, The Centre For Dermatology can help alleviate these symptoms and make you feel your best.
How It’s Treated
Juvederm and Restylane – The Juvederm and Restylane injectable fillers are derived from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body. Wrinkles and folds are created under the eyes because our skin’s ability to hold onto moisture decreases as we age. Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane help restore lost volume and will aid in reducing the appearance of bags under the eyes. Although both fillers are very similar in chemical makeup, the brands offer products intended for different uses and firmness. During your consultation, we will work with you to determine which is best depending on your needs and desired results.
