Non-Surgical Plasma Pen Vs. Surgical Eye Bag Treatment
Are you always disturbed by people saying you look tired? I know I would, and in most cases, the reason is because of the eye bags that some of us tend to have. No one loves those bags under the eye simply because they make you look tired and older than you really are. The worst thing is that these bags don’t get any better with enough sleep or rest neither does a better diet help to fix them. However, the good news for those living under the embarrassing shadow of eye bags is that this condition is treatable surgically but now eye bag treatment is non-surgical.
In general, several eye bag treatments are being offered by Oculoplastic and cosmetic surgeons around the world. At BeauSynergy Skin and Beauty clinic in Hertfordshire, we strive to boost your self-esteem by ensuring you are always at your best look. We do this by offering the state of the art eyelid treatment which also goes a long way in treating eye bags.
We use the non-surgical Plasma Pen Fibroblast treatment to achieve the desired level of eyelid lifting. It is understandable that some patients will consider surgical eye bag treatment procedures probably because they are not aware of other viable alternatives.
Before choosing one treatment over the other for the removal of bags under the eyes, it is wise to get an understanding of what causes these bags.
What Causes Eye Bags ?
For a better understanding of how the removal of bags under the eyes works, you should have an idea of what causes these bags in the first place. Research shows that several factors can lead to someone getting bags under the eyes. Either one or a combination of these factors can simultaneously give rise to the eye bags.
The most common cause for developing these unsightly bags under the eyes is the loss of fatty tissue in your upper cheeks. This fatty tissue just beneath the skin is present on the entire face. However, as you age, it begins to break down and shrink much faster in your cheeks than it does below the eyes. The uneven deflation of this tissue on the face leaves the eyes with protruding bulges of fat under the skin which are now the eye bags.
Eye bags can also result when the orbital septum, a membrane holding fat below the eyes, weakens. This membrane can weaken naturally due to the ageing process and as it weakens the fat behind it bulges outward and presses against the skin hence leading to eye bags.
Besides these two causes, studies have shown that some can develop bags under the eyes because of a genetic disposition to store extra fat under the eye.
Non-surgical Eye Bag Treatment using Plasma Pen Fibroblast
The non-ablative blepharoplasty, removal of eye bag treatment, performed at the Hertfordshire and Northumberland clinics, does not invade through the skin using scalpel or laser to tighten the loose skin. The treatment basically avoids all the typical risks of surgery and other traditional blepharoplasty treatment you might be aware of.
Plasma Pen treatment will involve avoiding cutting and the removing of excess fat as well as modification of the orbicular eyelid muscles.
A typical treatment session lasts less than 60 minutes. Depending on the severity of the loose skin around your eyes, our doctors will recommend the best course of treatment sessions.
One treatment also works wonders, have a look at the pictures above – these are the results with one session.

After the Plasma Pen eye bag treatment for the removal of bags under the eyes, most patients can return to work immediately or the day after looking at your best. You might experience a slight tenderness or swelling for the first one week after the treatment, but this is not quite common among many of our patients.
Old Option of Removing Eye Bags Surgically
Surgical eye bag removal might only be recommended if there are excessively high-fat deposits under the eyes. During the surgical process, the surgeon removes or adjusts the fats under your eyes to get rid of the bags. This process also eliminates the skin under the eye which is why it is not preferable because of the interference with the surfaces skin structure.
Full recovery after surgical eyelid lifting can take up to six weeks. This usually depends on your body’s natural healing process as well as strict adherence to the post-surgery care recommended by your surgeon.
