A very often common cause of eye bags is the loss of fatty tissue in the upper cheeks, just below the eyes. As you get older, it deflates faster in the cheeks than in the eyes. As a result of this uneven deflation, raised or protruding fatty tissues develop under the eyes; these are the bags under the eyes.

A treatment for eye bags that does not require surgery is hyaluronic acid injections.
Skin fillers are typically the 1st choice for eliminating eye bags without surgery.
For patients whose bags are caused by deflation of the cheek, fillers can restore a smooth transition from the lower eye to the cheeks, preventing the appearance of bags under the eyes. Some patients with excess fat under the eyes may also benefit from this treatment, depending on their facial anatomy.
First, I apply an anesthetic cream locally at the injection site, if needed. The injectable implants contain lidocaine, a substance with local anesthetic effect, to make the process painless. Filler is injected into the dermis, the layer of skin under the epidermis, using very thin needles or cannulas.
When treating wrinkles with fillers containing hyaluronic acid, fillers are used to correct lip wrinkles (“smoker’s wrinkles”), vertical line wrinkles under the corners of the mouth (“marionette wrinkles”), nasolabial folds. Also in any place where you want to improve the skin quality, such as décolleté or hands. Hyaluronic acid fillers are also ideal for increasing the volume of thin lips or restoring lost volume in areas such as the cheek, temple or chin. Filler can also be used to correct bags under the eyes and dark circles.
In an initial, no-obligation consultation, I can show you the treatment in detail and answer all your questions.
Injectable hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a natural component of human skin, which is an excellent material for facial wrinkle treatment and lip injections. Under the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules and helps to better link collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, hyaluronic acid replaces the lost volume of the skin, reduces wrinkles, corrects pre-existing scars, improves the shape of the lips, moisturizes and tightens the skin. Injectable hyaluronic acid is an absorbable material and is degraded within 8-12 months.
The effect of eye bag treatment with fillers is immediate and lasts for about 8-18 months depending on the material used, in some cases even longer. For maximum results, I often combine treatment with injectable fillers with thread lifting, laser treatments, radiofrequency therapy or mesotherapy.
During pregnancy, breastfeeding, blood coagulation disorders, anticoagulation, aspirin and NSAID intake, local inflammation or herpes, therapy with filler against bags under the eyes should be avoided.
“We often say that the eyes are the reflection of our soul, that they illustrate our character and feelings; offer them the attention and care they deserve.”
In my practice, your well-being and an optimal result is our top priority. Each patient has an individuality whose needs are the focus of my treatments. Therefore, it is not always possible to give a general estimate of the costs. Therefore, we ask for your understanding that we cannot give a general price for the treatment of bags under the eyes. The costs of each treatment also depend on the personal starting situation and your wishes.
