WHAT CAUSES EYE BAGS?
As a natural part of the aging process, eye bags and dark circles are commonplace and many people over 20 years of age will experience these at some point. Various factors that contribute to this include not getting enough sleep and exercise, and a salt-heavy diet. This will stretch the skin below your eyes, leading to the formation of dark circles or eye bags. Apart from this, the ligaments and muscles that hold facial fat in its place will weaken with age, leading to sagging which makes the fat more distinct underneath the eyes.

HOW IT WORKS
An effective anti-aging method, no down time is needed for this treatment and it produces results that look natural in a very short period of time.*
The hyaluronic acid fillers will add volume beneath the skin below the eyes, as well as triggering the production of fresh collagen and elastin. This is because as you age, the reserves of natural hyaluronic acid in your body break down but these dermal fillers provide a suitable replacement. It will reduce not only eye bags and dark circles, but also wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area.* Only a small amount is needed to make a noticeable difference to the eye area.
Similar to a non-surgical facelift, dermal fillers can be utilised in conjunction with Botox injections or on its own, but your doctor will advise you about the best treatment for optimum results. The procedure is suitable for all types of skin and no allergies will be triggered as hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body.
Dermal fillers can last for more than a year, but this varies depending on the patient. As the hyaluronic acid is natural, the body will eventually break it down and absorb it, so dermal fillers are not a permanent treatment. This also means you will not need to worry about maintaining a look you are unsatisfied with if the treatment is not suitable for you.
Most people are able to return to their daily routine immediately after treatment without any problems. Some redness, minor swelling or bruising may occur in the treatment area but this is easily hidden with mineral make-up.
