For years, plastic surgery was the only option for patients looking to treat their eye bags. This typically involved a plastic surgeon surgically removing excess skin and reducing the extra fat deposits accumulated in the under eye area. In recent times, however, non-surgical eye bag removal and treatment options allow patients the choice of eliminating the risks and downtime associated with surgery such as surgical scarring, stitching and stitch removal.

What Are The Non-surgical Eye Bag And Dark Circles Removal Options?

  1. Under Eye Filler or Tear Trough Fillers

In an under eye filler treatment or tear trough filler procedure, hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the appropriate depth to even out skin concavities due to uneven fat deposits and loss of volume from ageing.

A safe and successful treatment will depend on the cause of the eye bags or tear trough deformities, which requires the optimal choice of filler and treatment method.

Pros & Cons of Under Eye Filler

Pros:

  • Safe and effective when done by a doctor familiar with the procedure
  • Reversible with hyalase
  • Minimal downtime
  • Allows for follow-up revisions to fine-tune results

Cons:

  • Requires a doctor familiar with injections in the eye region as it’s a delicate area
  • Risk of bruising and in extremely rare cases, blindness
  • Temporary results lasting between 9 to 12 months, depending on individual
  1. Fotona SmoothEye Laser

Fotona SmoothEye is a novel non-ablative laser treatment for the eyes by tightening loose and ageing skin with little downtime. Other than tightening the upper and lower eyelid skin, SmoothEye can also be performed on the conjunctival side of the lower eyelid, targeting the bulging eye bag and reducing its appearance.

After a few treatments, the result is improved skin elasticity, fewer wrinkles and improved appearance of the eye bags. In addition, laser energy can stimulate blood flow and improve dark eye circles due to venous stasis.

Pros & Cons of Fotona SmoothEye

Pros:

  • Non-invasive and effective laser technology
  • Little downtime
  • No risk of bruising

Cons:

  • Improvements only set in gradually over a few weeks
  • Not suitable for patients who have done cataract surgery or implantable contact lens
  1. Thermage CPT Eye Firming Treatment

As the skin around the eyes loosens with age due to the loss of collagen, the fat pads under the eyes start to protrude and sag, whereas the upper eyelid starts to droop.

This is when Thermage FLX can help. An FDA-approved treatment, Thermage FLX uses monopolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production, which then firms up the loose skin, thereby reducing the appearance of tired eyes.

Pros & Cons of Thermage FLX

Pros:

  • Safe and effective technology
  • Almost no downtime

Cons:

  • Improvements are gradual and may not be as drastic compared to filler treatments, depending on individual collagen production
  • Temporary results lasting approximately 12 to 18 months, depending on individual
  1. Eye Bag Thread Lift

As another way to lift skin concavities for an even surface in the under eye area, fine PDO (polydioxanone) threads are inserted under the eyes.

These PDO threads stimulate your skin’s collagen production, which helps tighten skin and fill up the sunken areas of the eyes.

Pros & Cons of Eye Bag Thread Lift

Pros:

  • Safe and effective when done by a doctor familiar with the procedure
    Minimal downtime

Cons:

  • Requires a doctor familiar with injections in the eye region as it’s a delicate area
  • Temporary results lasting between 9 to 12 months, depending on individual
  • Improvements may not be as drastic compared to filler treatments, depending on individual collagen production
  1. Micro-insulated Radiofrequency Needling

A technology hailing from Korea, this treatment involves introducing a micro-insulated needle to deliver heat and radiofrequency directly to the excess fats under the eyes. The fats then melt away and are naturally passed out through the body’s waste disposal system.

The radiofrequency also firms up the skin by stimulating collagen renewal, giving the skin around the under eye area a firmer appearance.

Pros & Cons of Under Eye Filler

Pros:

  • Safe and effective when done by a doctor familiar with the procedure

Cons:

  • Requires a doctor familiar with injections in the eye region as it’s a delicate area
  • Bruising, swelling and scabbing lasting for a few days to a week
  • Risk of an irreversible over-burning of fat deposits, which creates a permanent concavity and shadow, which gives one the appearance of a tired look
  • Requires multiple treatments (3 to 5 sessions)

Which Eye Bag Removal Is Suitable For Me?

As eye bags and dark eye shadows have a variety of causes the doctor must first assess your condition in person during a consultation. Thereafter, the appropriate treatment or a combination of treatments can be applied.

In serious and complicated eye bag removal cases in Singapore that involve eyelid surgery, excess fat removal or a fat transfer/ fat graft, full scale plastic surgery should be considered instead.
