Bags and dark circles under the eyes make a person look tired and fatigued. This issue is not an uncommon one. Bags and dark circles under the eyes are one of the most common reasons for consulting with a plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or eyelid specialist. A patient with bags and dark circles may feel great internally, but friends and colleagues keep asking if they lack sleep. This problem is not only experienced by older patients. Bags and dark circles may be present in young men and women as well, especially in those who have a family history of the same issue.
What is the best treatment for bags and dark circles under the eyes?
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with bags and dark circles anymore. There are many ways to reduce the appearance of tired eyes due to under-eye bags. Several factors will influence the best alternative for you. Time-off available for recovery, budget, and desired lasting-effects are the main points to consider when choosing the right option.
Dermal fillers are always a good choice if you are seeking a “quick fix” and don’t have time off from work. Fillers are applied in the surgeon’s office (no need to visit the operating suite) and produce instant results. The procedure is generally painless, but some swelling, and sometimes bruising should be expected… nothing that makeup can’t cover-up. Fillers can be supplemented with plasma treatments (Plasmage ®) or microneedle devices to get the best result. An important fact to keep in mind when considering fillers is that the effect of each application lasts a maximum of 6 months to a year, after which re-application will be required to maintain results.
If you’re looking for a more permanent result, and you can take some time off from work, the best alternative is a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty. This operation can do wonders to change the tired appearance of your eyes. Blepharoplasty has the advantage of being a painless, outpatient procedure whose results lasts for years. Keep in mind, lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a more sophisticated and delicate procedure, and it must be performed by a plastic surgeon experienced in eyelid cosmetic surgery. Fortunately, Costa Rica boasts outstanding specialists called oculoplastic surgeons who can help you safely achieve the result you want.
