Eyelid Surgery Santa Barbara
Dr. Sheffield is a prominent Santa Barbara plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Some of our patients have brought forth interesting and detailed questions about upper eyelid surgery, otherwise known as upper blepharoplasty, and eye bags treatment.
I have always had “bags” under my eyes. Will any of the laser techniques work?
: Great question you have here! Yes, there are a number of laser treatments that can help improve under eye bags. For instance, you can rely on Fraxel or Erbium to do the job. These two can help in tightening the skin, improving lines and wrinkles, as well as eliminate or reduce undesirable skin discoloration. However, your surgeon’s skills and experience are as important as the laser treatment itself. Your surgeon should have worked using these laser devices before.
Inexperienced or lack of skills can result into having extra tight skin in the eye area or a pull down of the eyelid. Should there be a need to remove fats, surgery may be needed or combined with laser. However, if you are looking for a non-surgical way to improve the bags, laser treatment could help out. Other non-surgical methods in improving eye bags also include hyaluronic acid filler injections. Good luck!
