Do you wake up each day with tired-looking eyes, because of those pesky bags under your eyes? If so, you’re not alone. Eye bags are a common cosmetic concern that can make you look older, fatigued, and even unwell. But fret not, here are 4 ways you can effectively tackle those pesky eye bags!

Home Remedies

There are popular home remedies used by many to help with tackling eye bags. Mild eye bags can sometimes be reduced by placing chilled cucumber slices or tea bags over your eyes for about 15 minutes. In doing so, this can help to temporarily reduce puffiness and inflammation.

Topical treatments

You can also consider using eye creams and gels that are specially formulated for eye lids. They may help reduce eye bags and improve the overall appearance of the eye area.

Non-surgical treatments

While there are many non-surgical treatments being advertised online, not all procedures will work the way you imagine they will! The concern with Fillers like hyaluronic acid is they may cause blindness, while other injectables such as platelet-rich plasma is not approved for use in Singapore due to its lack of research evidence.

Heat-based non-surgical treatments are also popular amongst the netizens. Procedures using laser and radiofrequency to dissolve the fats in the eye bags are advertised as “Non-Surgical” treatments. If inadequate heat is used, the treatment result is ineffective. If too much energy is applied over too wide an area, surrounding structures such as the eyelid muscle or skin may get damaged in the process. The fat inside an eye bag is continuous with the fat surrounding the eye and the muscles that move the eye.

Surgical treatments

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the eye area. It can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids or both, depending on your needs. If you’re looking for the most precise method with a longer-term result, then surgical treatment is the answer for you.

While each of these treatments has its pros and cons, it’s important to consult with a qualified facial plastic surgeon to determine which option is best for you. They can help you evaluate your options and customize a treatment plan to help you achieve the results you desire, safely and effectively.
