Getting Rid of Permanent Eye Bags

Are you tired of being told you look tired? Does your under-eye area look heavy? If so, you may be dealing with persistent eye bags. It may seem like a problem that does not go away. You slap on eye creams and homemade remedies, but the eye bags remain prominent on certain days. Is there a more effective solution to get rid of these pesky eye bags? Let us first find more about what eye bags are and how they are formed.

 

Eye Bags
Our eyes are very sensitive, and they are protected by fat pads. The tissues around our eyes hold the fat pads in place. This prevents them from sliding or bulging out. Moreover, the skin around our eyes is extremely delicate and thin. Changes to it can make the fat pads more visible.

Collagen supports the connective tissues and muscles of our skin. It makes our skin bouncy and tight, while holding the fat pads in place. As we age, collagen reduces, and our skin loses elasticity. As a result, our skin sags and droops. Over time, under-eye “pouches” begin to form. The fat pads then slide into these “pouches”. This results in eye bags.

Exposure to UV rays from the sun breaks down the collagen in our skin. With reduced elasticity, our skin droops even more and the eye bags become more prominent. As we age, the upper jawbone could also shrink. This facial feature supports the fats and bones in the cheeks. If it becomes smaller, the eye bags become more pronounced as well.

Eye bags may also be in the genes. The tissues in some people are weaker than normal. Their eye bags are exacerbated by a lack of sleep. Other factors that affect the formation of eye bags include salty food and smoking. Eliminating these factors can help to remove eye bags.

Home remedies, eye creams and face masks are temporary solutions. Although they may improve the texture and colour of the skin, they are unable to penetrate deep into the fat pads. Surgery is often used to correct eye bags, but there is an alternative non-invasive solution that can help to remove your eye bags effectively.

Exilis Ultra 360

Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-invasive facial contouring treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound technology to enhance heat penetration treatment. A unique cooling system helps to keep the skin surface cool. This enables the RF heat to penetrate more deeply without discomfort. RF stimulates and remodels collagen deep within the skin. With the collagen remodelled, the skin tightens and sagging reduces. RF technology also breaks down fat pads at 42oC. This action helps to reduce eye bags.

Meanwhile, ultrasound waves pass through at the cellular level. They provide more uniform heating and greater comfort. With more precise and deeper heating, the eye bags are removed, while the skin is lifted. You will find your skin feeling tighter and looking youthful again. Exilis Ultra 360 has a unique tip designed for the small regions around the eyes. This allows the areas around the eyes to be contoured accurately.

Exilis Ultra 360 treatment is very comfortable and completely pain-free. Most patients describe the heat sensation as like a “hot stone massage”. Most patients undergo between 2-4 treatments, scheduled 7-10 days apart. There is also no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Exilis Ultra 360 is FDA-cleared. It is a safe, clinically-proven treatment. Clinical studies have found a 19% increase in skin density and 35% reduction in skin laxity after treatment. In fact, some patients have reported visible results after one treatment. The results will continue to improve over the next few months.

Besides reducing eye bags, Exilis Ultra 360 can also be used to improve the skin on other body areas. Book a consultation now to find out more!
