Under eye bags can start appearing as a person ages, making them seem older than they really are and detracting from their appearance. For patients in the Beverly Hills area who are struggling with this issue, Dr. Nima is here to help. Through a number of treatments, he can get rid of sagging skin, fat deposits, and extra fluid to help restore a patient’s youthful glow.
What Causes Under Eye Bags?
Age is the biggest cause of under eye bags. This is because the skin gets weaker as it ages, leading to sagging and a loss of skin tone. Without tissue to keep it in place, the fat around the eye shifts into a bag in the lower eyelid, creating the tell-tale puffy and swollen appearance.
However, there are a few other things that can make under eye bags more prevalent. These include:
- Fluid retention, especially after waking up or eating salty foods.
- Not getting enough rest.
- Smoking cigarettes.
- Having allergies or other swellings of the face.
Types of Under Eye Bags Treatments and Their Benefits
The most effective way to treat under eye bags is through eyelid surgery, medically known as blepharoplasty. This procedure takes place in our Beverly Hills office and leaves no visible scarring.
Dr. Nima will carefully make an incision inside the eyelid in order to cut away excess skin and fat. This will leave the lower eyelid tight and firm without looking overdone. With this procedure, results are long lasting and more intense than non-surgical options.
That being said, there are a number of less invasive treatments Dr. Nima can use to help his Beverly Hills patients get rid of their under eye bags. Dermal fillers and other injectables can help to fill out this area, making the appearance of sagging skin less noticeable. Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels can also help to tighten and tone the area to reduce bags under the eyes. With these options, patients will have less downtime and see faster results.
Which Under Eye Bags Treatment Is Right for Me?
Which treatment a Beverly Hills patient should choose all depends on their medical history and specific concerns. Dr. Nima will work one on one with every patient at their initial consultation to determine a plan of attack. In cases, Dr. Nima may recommend a combination of treatments to help a patient achieve their end goal.
What Does Under Eye Bags Treatment Cost?
The cost of removing under eye bags all depends on which treatments are chosen. Dr. Nima can’t quote an accurate price without seeing the patient first, so all interested Beverly Hills patients are urged to schedule their initial consultation to learn more. Under eye bag procedures will likely not be covered by insurance, but we do partner with CareCredit to help patients finance treatment.
