Goodbye, Under Eye Bags

There are certain parts of the appearance that are easier to solve than others. Consider uneven skin tone, which can be corrected with make-up. Or eyebrows that don’t quite have enough length or shape – this can be corrected with microblading. But other imperfections are harder to hide.

Under eye bags fall into this category.

Bags under the eyes are usually characterized by swelling or puffiness that happens when the tissue structures and muscles supporting the eyelids weaken. When this happens, the fat helping support the eyes moves into the lower eyelids causing the appearance of bags. While the presence of bags under the eyes rarely symbolizes a serious cause for concern, that doesn’t mean we don’t want them gone.

While bags might not be solved with makeup, the options available are still fairly easy and accessible.


Option number one is a lower blepharoplasty. This is a surgical and permanent option. This procedure is reductive in nature and seeks to remove skin and/or fat in order to reduce lower eyelid wrinkles, bags and other fat bulges. While this is surgical, a lower blepharoplasty can be performed with a scar-less incision.


The second, non-surgical and temporary option, is the use of fillers. Doctor Jean-Paul Azzi particularly likes Revanesse Versa, a hyaluronic acid filler, for procedures impacting the eyes. For a procedure like this, the filler can really help offset the loss of volume to really replenish that youthful appearance. Getting rid of bags can immediately impact appearance – from run-down and sleepy to rejuvenated in minutes.
