Undereye Bags? Leave Them Behind with Restylane®

Undereye bags — those dark, droopy hollows below your eyes — are the most unwanted baggage of your summer vacation. You may have had the best night’s sleep of your life, and the rest of your face may look younger than springtime, but those undereye hollows are instantly aging. You can only hide them under big sunglasses for so long. Fortunately, there’s a safe and effective treatment that can help you leave your undereye bags behind.

Although most of us associate hollows and dark circles under the eyes with lack of sleep or ill health, they’re actually — sadly — a normal sign of the changes that come with aging. Over time, skin succumbs to the forces of gravity, beginning to sag or droop. This is most commonly seen first with the skin around the eyes, which is very thin. Another consequence of time and gravity is the shifting of fat cells under the skin, leading to a loss of volume and accentuating the natural hollows of the bone structure under the eyes. Skin’s inherent moisture is affected by aging and environment, too, drying out the tissues and making them more susceptible to wrinkling, sagging, and darkening. Finally, age and UV exposure deplete the skin’s natural undercarriage of collagen and elastin, the proteins that provide definition and youthful plumpness.

Now you know why undereye bags form. The solution to unpacking them is to pack the area under the eyes (sometimes called the tear trough) with all the hydration and plumping structures it’s missing. Treatment with Restylane® — an injectable filler — is one of the safest, most effective ways to rehydrate and plump undereye tissues.

Restylane® is a silky fluid composed of hyaluronic acid, the skin’s own natural moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid hydrates from the inside, and injection with Restylane® also stimulates the formation of your own natural collagen and elastin, providing the flexible, youthful underlying structure that keeps gravity at bay. Undereye treatment with Restylane® generally offers results that last 6-9 months, with no downtime.
