Sometimes you just get fed up with people telling you how tired you look. It’s those dark circles and under eye bags that make you look like you haven’t slept in weeks. Concealer can help but too often it just accentuates what you are trying to hide.
Now there is a more permanent solution to heavy under eye bags.
Promising to soften dark circles in just ten minutes, cosmetic surgeons are injecting filler into the eye bags for the new treatment that lasts two to four years.
Tear-trough fillers: Promising to soften dark circles in just ten minutes, cosmetic surgeons are injecting filler into the eye bags for the new treatment that lasts two to four years.
The dermatologist-offered procedure called tear-trough fillers, where hyaluronic acid such as Restylane or Juvéderm is injected to make the eyes appear better rested, costs from $600 to $1,000.
However injecting the eye area is not without risks. If the filler blocks a retinal artery, it can cause blindness, but that’s rare. The usual side effects of the tear-trough treatment range from puffy eyes to possible bruising, which usually subsides within one week.
Melissa Beretich told Good Morning America: ‘What I’m hoping to come out with is to be able to go back to what I was doing four to five years ago, and not wear makeup. The ten minute procedure with New York City-based plastic surgeon, Dr Steven Pearlman, Ms Beretich said she ‘absolutely’ saw a difference in her eyes and felt no pain at all.
Dr Pearlman explained: ‘What this treatment is doing is camouflaging the bags. For people who only have mild [eye] bags, it’s a way to stave off the need for surgery by filling in that hollow.
