About Darkness and Bags Under the Eyes

You may develop dark spots or bags under the eyes for several reasons, such as a lack of sleep, hyperpigmentation, allergies, overexposure to sunlight, and thinning skin under the eyes. But in most cases, the onset of dark circles or bags under eyes  indicate the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, components that maintain the optimal levels of volume under your eyes. The loss of volume leads to a sunken and dark appearance. Our cosmetic providers offer cutting-edge treatments to reverse the signs of aging and make your eyes look bright and vibrant.

PRF Injections

PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) injections involve harnessing your body’s innate healing properties to reverse the signs of aging under your eyes. Platelet-rich fibrin is a component of your blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of the healing activities in your body, such as blood clot formation and collagen production. The cosmetic provider draws a small sample of your blood, isolates and purifies the PRF, and injects it into targeted areas under your eyes. The growth factors instantly increase blood circulation to the heart and stimulate collagen production, making the under-eye region look fuller and younger.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath targeted facial tissues. We provide dermal fillers made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acids, such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Versa, and RHA fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biocompatible gel that makes your skin look fuller and more voluminous. When injected into targeted areas under the eyes, dermal fillers add volume underneath the skin, making the region look smoother, fuller, and brighter. Dermal fillers ensure instant results — your dark circles under eyes will instantly look fuller and smoother. The results usually last 6 to 18 months, depending on the filler used.

Customized Skincare Regimen

It isn’t enough to undergo cosmetic treatments, such as PRF injections and dermal fillers. The best way to maintain the results of your cosmetic treatments is through consistent, at-home skincare. Our cosmetic providers carefully examine your skin type, assess your skin conditions, and recommend the ideal skincare regimen, usually consisting of medical-grade products from ZO Skin Health, Skinbetter Science, Skinceuticals, Face Reality, and GlyMed Plus. For patients suffering from under-eye bags and dark circles, we recommend medical-grade skincare products that stimulate collagen production, improve hydration, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making your eyes look more radiant.
