Who doesn’t have eye bags these days? Long days at work, kids, and other responsibilities cut into our sleep. And what do you know, you wake up with awful bags under your eyes. But a lack of sleep is not the only reason bags develop under the eyes.
As you age, the tissue and muscles beneath your eyelids begins to degrade and weaken. The skin begins to sag, and the fat that was normally around your eye now shifts into the area beneath your eye. Not just that, but you can accumulate fluid in this area as well, which makes your eyes appear swollen and puffy.
A few reasons this occurs are:
- Changes in weather
- Eating salty food
- Lack of sleep
- Under-eye bags run in your family
- Too much alcohol – pulls fluid from your face
- Cigarettes – dries and weakens the skin on your face
For most women suffering from under eye bags, eye cream or cover up is used to mask the affected area; but a more permanent, state-of-the-art, and NATURAL solution is available at Precision MD Cosmetic Surgery Center.
PRP for Eye Bags
PRP stands for “platelet rich plasma.” During your appointment, a small sample of blood is extracted. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge that separates out the PRP. The PRP, which contains profound growth hormones and other factors, is then injected into the eye area. This reinvigorates the affected area, promoting new collagen growth, elasticity, and an improved ability to burn the fat in the area beneath your eyes.
It is important to note that this procedure should be used as a preventative measure and/or for moderate under-eye bags. If you’re under the age of 30, results will be immediately noticeable within the first few days. If you are older, however, it will take longer to see the desired results, and you may require several treatments before you see a drastic reduction in your eye bags.
