We all experience bags and hollows under the eyes when we don’t get a good night’s sleep. But what happens when these bags and hollows don’t go away? Do you feel like you look tired all of the time, even when you’re not? Our eyes are one of the first places of our face to show visible aging, in part because the skin is so delicate – and because it is often the first thing people notice about you. When we miss sleep, feel stressed, or start to age, our eyes feel strained, resulting in eye bags, dark circles, and puffiness.
Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics offers several treatment options to rejuvenate the eyes and help you look and feel younger.
- Under-eye dark circles
- Under-eye hollows, with or without dark pigmentation
- Under-eye fine lines, wrinkles and poor texture
- Under-eye loss of elasticity and firmness
- Under-eye bags
Volbella is a very subtle and soft dermal filler that works well with the thin skin under the eyes and can treat under-eye hollownes. Volbella is a great treatment option for under eye hallows because it has a thinner consistency than most other dermal fillers, which is beneficial when dealing with the delicate skin underneath your eyes. The majority of patients have reported that results last for up to 1 year. Volbella, Vollure and Voluma are all dermal fillers and part of the Juvederm family. We will recommend which filler is best for your individual needs, deciding factors are the thickness of the patient’s skin, and the severity of the hallows. Volbella offers the most subtle correction, while Voluma corrects the deepest hollows.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections use a patient’s own platelets, extracted from their blood, to stimulate collagen under the eyes, smoothing the texture, firming the skin, and lightening dark circles. The treatments are natural, and produce natural-looking results, because they use your own cells. PRP can be added to the filler treatment to stimulate the patient’s own collagen and increase the duration of the result. Some people who prefer not to use a filler choose only PRP for the under-eye area for a more subtle correction. During PRP treatment, patients will see regeneration of new healthy skin tissue, which leads to gradual and natural results that improve in the 2-3 months following treatment.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to cause micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulates production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling can be added to treatment for those that have fine lines around their eyes, it helps to improve skin texture. When applied to the under eye area, it can tighten the skin, which improves fine lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and eye puffiness. Microneedling also improves texture and tone of the under-eye skin.
