Around-the-eyes creams can help, but they are unable to avoid the problem completely.
If the bags are small and are associated to deep nasojugal folds (sunken eyes), these deep folds might be better treated with injections of hyaluronic acid that restore the volume and conceal the effect.
However, treatment of bags under eyes, especially when they are very noticeable, almost always involves surgery. The technique used is called blepharoplasty, one of the most popular facial cosmetic surgeries that we perform at the IMO using a laser-assisted transconjunctival technique that leaves no visible scars.
Blepharoplasty can be associated with other treatments, such as peels or resurfacing (laser) to improve the quality and colour of the skin at the same time.
