Everything you need to know about bags under the eyes

Reading time: 10 minutes

To ensure a natural result from the filler treatment we use a multi-approach technique of correcting the tear trough deformity AND the surrounding tissues. This C-eyelift is a 360 approach to rejuvenate tired eyes.
This treatment tightens pronounced tear troughs, plumps hollows and rejuvenates the under-eye zone by precisely injecting a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler on the cheeks, cheekbones and along the skin of the lower eyelid.

Which eye-bag treatment suits me best?

Under eye bags are caused by volume loss and thinning of the skin.

Volume loss happens at the level of the anterior cheek pad, and the area around the eyes. This causes a depression just below the eye, forming the tear trough and shadows under the eyes.

Thinning of the skin, which lead to wrinkles and puffiness as a result of water retention.

The tear trough can best be treated with the C-lift.
The loose skin we can tighten with energy based devices or skin peels.

What about pigmentation around the eyes?

For under eye bags and dark circles, things get a little tricky. We are always upfront about the fact they are very hard to treat. We will never be able to say on the phone how beneficial or effective dark circle treatment is, as it depends on the skin type and the severity of the indication, and we cannot guarantee treatment will completely remove them, nor would we ever promise this. It is important to see every patient for a consultation before we can deduce most appropriate treatment.

Costs eye bags treatment

For the standard eye bags treatment we use a fixed price of 850 euros. During the consultation appointment we decide, in agrement with you, if you need any additonal treatments, such as treatment on the cheekbone, the C-eye lift and / or skin tightening with skin therapy.

Filler treatment

Tear Trough Filler rejuvenation is a series of micro-injections that are placed along the line of the hollow and the practitioner usually gently massages the area to ensure the gel is evenly distributed. The tear trough is the area between your cheek and lower eyelid. As we age, we lose volume in this area, causing under-eye dark circles, hollows and eye bags to appear. An effective tear trough treatment is to inject filler into this area – restoring the lost volume and reducing the appearance of dark circles and hollows.

Te ensure a natural result from the filler treatment we use a multi-approach technique of correcting the tear trough deformity AND the surrounding tissues. This C-lift is a 360 approach to rejuvenate tired eyes.
This treatment volumises pronounced tear troughs, plumps hollows and rejuvenates the under-eye zone by precisely injecting a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler on the cheeks, cheekbones and along the skin of the lower eyelid.

Why treat under-eye bags and circles with fillers?

We know for sure that you won’t find a solution to bags and circles under your eyes from a jar, no matter what the ads claim.
Nowadays, techniques with modern fillers are so advanced – we can treat the under eyes region too. Imagine, only ten years ago this was very daunting, but today we can get beautiful natural results with the C-lift approach.

What happens during treatment?

First we take your photo, in order to give you a comparison for before and after your treatment. If needed you will get topical anaesthetic and leaves it to numb your eyelid skin for several minutes. The doctor then precisely injects filler under the skin in tiny aliquots with a very safe canula which takes around 15 minutes. During the treatment we will analyse how the filler is reducing your volume deficiency and dark circles and add more filler to certain areas if necessary. We then give you specialist skincare advice to help protect and maintain the delicate under-eye skin.

Experience of puffiness treatment with Eye Regen

I have been complaining to my husband for years about my tired appearance due to fluid bags. Via an article by Doctor Frodo, I found out that there are multiple solutions for eliminating your puffiness. I was treated with fillers and with the Eye Regen treatment’ – Ingrid

Before the treatment

To prevent the formation of bruises: Stop taking all dietary supplements, vitamins and fish oil five days in advance of your treatment and avoid alcohol for 24 hours before treatment. It is also best not to take any Aspirin, Naproxen or Ibuprofen, as these meds thin the blood (discuss with your family doctor).
You may start taking Arnica five days before your treatment until two days after.
We kindly ask you to arrive thirty minutes in advance of your treatment in order for us to apply the anaesthetic cream.

After treatment

Try not to touch the treated area or apply pressure during the first few hours after treatment. You should not visit a sauna or a beautician for a week. Protect your skin for the first 2 weeks with SPF50. Do not to exercise on the day of your treatment.


Reducing and removing eye bags

As we age, we lose volume in the tear trough (under-eye) region. This causes dark circles, wrinkles, thinning skin and under-eye hollows to appear, making us look tired. This ageing change can start as early as our late twenties and can cause a lot of distress when we look in the mirror.

The skin starts to sag, the eye socket hollows with age, and the skin can become crepey and wrinkled. Around the eyes, the crow’s feet lines and wrinkles become more prominent, making us look tired and older than we feel.

Tear trough fillers are an effective way to treat dark circles under the eyes and under-eye hollows. By injecting filler under the eyes and the surrounding tissue, we fill the volume lost by ageing –lifting the region, lightening dark circles, filling under eye hollows and wrinkles. This treatment also improves skin quality by boosting collagen production and hydrating skin from the inside.

Experience of puffiness treatment with fillers

The bags under my eyes had been bothering me since I was young. No matter how much I slept, the bags never got better.’ Doctor Frodo told me that I did not really have bags, but more of a groove or volume deficiency under the eyes. This volume deficiency has been supplemented with fillers’ – Martine

Eliminating eyebags: filler treatment or surgery?

In contrast to a filler treatment, an eyelid correction can be a major operation. During the first few days, the skin around the eyes is usually bruised and swollen. The scar can be visible for weeks or months after the treatment. As with any surgery, an eyelid correction is not fully without risks. Infections may arise, but you could also experience abnormal discolouration or irritation. Fortunately, eliminating puffiness surgically is rarely necessary.

Frequently asked questions

Is the treatment painful?

We can administer a topical anaesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Most clients report little or no pain during treatment.

When will I see a result from under-eye fillers?

The treatment usually takes less than 15 minutes and you can see an initial result from the tear trough fillers immediately. Often the treatment causes a very subtle swelling, so although the area will instantly look more filled, we advise waiting a week to see the final result of the treatment. If you have a pigment problem with your under-eyes as well as a tear trough deficiency you will need a bespoke skincare regime to reduce this pigmentation too. In this case you’ll see an instant improvement from the fillers (which will improve shadowing and thin skin issues), but it will take several weeks to improve the pigment issue.

Which fillers do you use?

Both Juvéderm and Restylane have been used by us since the founding of Kliniek Dokter Frodo. These are the most popular fillers worldwide. Because all of our fillers are biodegradable, adverse reactions rarely occur. Should this happen nonetheless, the hyaluronic acid can be degraded using hyaluronidase, which causes the skin to recover immediately.

How long does the treatment take?

Appointment times vary, depending on the desired effect, and you must attend a consultation. As a rough guide, the treatment can take around 15 minutes.

Will it look natural?

We’ve all seen celebrities that have ‘filler faces’ with puffy cheeks who don’t look like themselves anymore. This is what happens when a practitioner has placed too much filler in the wrong places, without understanding facial anatomy. Fillers are simply products used to replace the volume we lose in our faces as we age. If done subtly and in proportion to the patient’s natural beauty, you will have natural-looking, age-appropriate results.

Will I get scars?

No, you won’t get any scars from the treatment.

What if I don’t like the result?

Tear trough fillers can take a few weeks to settle. If after this period you don’t like them, they be dissolved by injecting hyaluronidase, which takes less than 24 hours to work. That means if you’re ever unhappy with the result, it’s quick and easy to go back to your normal self.

What is the minimum age to undergo a cosmetic treatment?

The minimum age is 18 years.
