Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures to Treat Dark Circles, Hollows and Bags Under Eyes

Dark circles, under-eye hollows and eye bags are not easy to treat but are an extremely common problem in the aging face. This can be a tricky area that often gets ignored by medical aesthetic professionals due to lack of confidence and the belief that there are only surgical options to correct the problem.  A surgical blepharoplasty, while helping to remove loose skin, often can lead to the under eye looking more hollow. At ReNue, I offer a non-surgical option for treating dark circles, hollows and bags under the eyes.

It has taken me over 16 years to understand how this area can be treated using the 3 pillars of cosmetic rejuvenation:

  • Treating lines and wrinkles with BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Filling, lifting and tightening with Juvéderm® Voluma
  • Thickening and tightening the skin with TRL resurfacing lasers

Most under-eye areas can be helped with a touch of BOTOX® to reduce some of the squinting motion around the eye.

The biggest impact in treating the under-eye is through the strategic use of dermal fillers, specifically Juvéderm® Voluma.  By treating the lateral cheek area and the mid-cheek area directly below the eye we can get dramatic improvement in the under-eye area.  Sometimes small amounts of filler need to be injected directly in the under-eye hollows to complete the correction.

Finally, the skin often needs to be thickened and tightened with a resurfacing laser.

Treating the aging under-eye can be one of the most satisfying of all non-surgical cosmetic treatments.  It has taken years to master how we approach the area at ReNue.

      Hi Sue. Yes we do. I would direct you to my blog on September 2017 for some background but best to call one of the ReNue clinics to get a proper assessment as everyone under eye is different and needs a unique and customized approach. Thank for you your question
