Eye Bags and Droopy Eyelids

Tighten and Rejuvenate Your Aging Eyes Without Surgery.

What are Eye Bags and Droopy Eyelids?

The natural effects of aging often lead to eyes that look tired and droopy. The upper eyelids will often develop laxity, wrinkles, and thin, crepey skin as they age, while the lower eye area will often appear droopy, puffy and discolored from “bags” that often start becoming visible as the skin beneath the eyes thins.

What Causes Eye Bags and Droopy Eyelids?

Numerous factors can contribute to undereye bags and thin, wrinkly eyelid skin. The effects of aging on the eye area are experienced by all, as aging skin loses collagen and elastin, proteins that give skin firmness and resilience. With less collagen, skin loses structural support and begins to sag. It also becomes thinner, making it look delicate and papery.

Genetics also plays a major role, as do environmental exposures such as sun damage. Since the skin around the eyes experiences so much motion during your lifetime, this skin is particularly prone to being saggy and crepey as we age.

How are Eye Bags and Droopy Eyelids Treated?

While people with severe sagging skin might benefit from a traditional blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), many may not need one to see their desired results. At Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, we offer Tixel® non-surgical blepharoplasty. Tixel® is a unique skin tightening and rejuvenation treatment that uses patented metal plates with tiny titanium tips. The plate heats up and touches your skin for a fraction of a second, transferring heat to the skin and creating tiny areas of controlled thermal injury.

Your skin responds to these injured areas with a healing process that increases collagen production. This new collagen tightens and strengthens the skin, lifting and smoothing your eyelids. It also corrects thinning skin, erases wrinkles, and smooths away undereye bags.

What Results Will I See With Treatment for Eye Bags and Droopy Eyelids?

Most people require an average of three Tixel® treatments to achieve their desired results. Each treatment will provide additional skin tightening and firmness. Results may appear within a few weeks as new collagen starts to form. Full results develop about four to six weeks after your last treatment.

Tixel® treatment results are often long-lasting. Occasional touch-up treatments will maintain your youthful-looking results. While many people benefit from maintenance treatments once a year, you may need them more or less frequently.

Is There Any Downtime With Eye Bag and Droopy Eye Treatment?

People who have Tixel® treatment on the eyelids often experience some minor swelling and redness. These will usually fade within a day or two. You can wear makeup the day after treatment to hide any remaining redness. We recommend avoiding any irritating products for at least 48 hours. You can return to your usual routine after Tixel® treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Eye Rejuvenation?

Most people with signs of aging around the eyes can benefit from Tixel® treatment. If you have undereye bags and droopy, crepey eyelids, Tixel® offers a fast, minimal-downtime way to achieve your goals. Tixel® works safely on all skin types and tones. Unlike a laser, it works safely around the eyes and even on the eyelids right up to the lash line. This makes Tixel® unique as a technique for non-surgical blepharoplasty. Dr. Schwartz and his team at Premier Vein & Body are proud to offer this unique form of non-surgical eye rejuvenation. You should not have Tixel® around your eyes if you have an eye infection or certain medical conditions.
