There are many signs of ageing that are often associated with facial skin changes, including the development of fine lines and wrinkles. But while these may well be the first that spring to mind, other more subtle changes can also have a negative impact on your self esteem and confidence. Palpebral bags are the perfect example of this. And these often develop from the late 20’s into the early 30s. But what are these and what kind of aesthetic treatment options can help to resolve palpebral bags?
What are palpebral bags?
Palpebral bags are more commonly known as under eye bags.These form in the area between the under eye and the upper cheek, and are a common sign of ageing. As a natural part of the ageing process, the skin loses collagen and elastin, which are responsible for skin volume and elasticity. This loss of volume leads to hollows under the eye, as well as puffy skin. This can also become discoloured leading to dark circles that make you look fatigued and older.
What are the effective aesthetic treatment options for palpebral bags?
There are a number of different and effective aesthetic treatment options to help improve the appearance of palpebral bags, or under eye bags. These include:
- Dermal fillers
- Chemical peels
Dermal fillers for palpebral bags
Dermal fillers can transform under eye bags by replacing the lost volume from this facial region. Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid and for palpebral bags very small amounts of this can be injected along the tear trough.The dermal filler will then be carefully massaged into the space under the eye to ensure that this is evenly spaced in exactly the right place for your facial structure and shape. Careful dermal filler injections here can raise the skin in this area, filling in the hollow area, and smoothing out the skin under the eye as well. As hyaluronic acid bonds with water molecules, this will also help to nourish and hydrate the skin under the eye, for altogether healthier skin.
Chemical peels for palpebral bags
Chemical peels can transform the appearance of bags under the eye. This is an aesthetic treatment that removes the top layers of skin, taking away the outer layer of dirt and dead skin cells, and triggering cell rejuvenation. Once the outer layers are removed, the new skin cells will be lighter and brighter, resolving the dark circles and repairing the discolouration.
Mesotherapy for palpebral bags
Another fantastic option for treating the dark under eye circles associated with palpebral bags is mesotherapy. This aesthetic treatment option involves using superfine needles to inject a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and plant extracts into the middle layer of the skin, bypassing the epidermis. This can replace lost nutrients in the skin and hydrate and nourish your skin cells. As a result, mesotherapy is also able to tighten loose skin and resolve discolouration problems, which makes this treatment highly effective for the under eye area.
