Eye bags can be caused by a number of reasons including
- Allergies or dermatitis. These are more likely in case of accompanying itching and or redness
- Fluid retention due to weather, hormonal change or diet
- Lack of sleep
Eye bags give the impression of the person being tired, older than his/her age and makes people less attractive.
Procedure for Microneedling for eye bags
A numbing cream or spray is applied. The skin is numb after 15-60 minutes depending on the method.
The skin is thoroughly cleaned before Micronneedling is carried out on the eye bags and the surrounding area. The skin may have some superficial bleeding or the Microneedling may cause mild erythema of the area. Usually the redness will be gone the next day. The procedure is therefore suitable at the end of a work day.
Each cases is different and we may recommend a course of 6-10 weekly treatments. Usually results will start to show after 2-3 treatments.
Depending on the severity of your conditions maintenance treatment may be required after 6-12 months.
Complications and downtime after Microneedling for eye bags
In some, especially very fair people, erythema may be visible after Microneedling. Usually it’s gone within few hours.
Most people would be able to go to work the next day without any drawing any attention. However, it may vary from patient to patient. If your skin i sensitive, then we recommend having the procedure before the weekend.
