Many women and men are plagued by bags under their eyes, making them look tired and older than their years.
The skin in the area beneath the eyes is very thin, so they are all the more noticeable on those with certain skin types and coloration – those with pale or olive coloured skin will find that they look more pronounced.
The Daily Mail featured Ultherapy treatment as part of a solution to improving eye bags, saying:
…ultrasound technology is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the stringent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help treat dark circles and sagging.
And in a study published last year, all subjects reported a tightening of the skin and improvement in their dark circles after it.
Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy, or ultrasound, to stimulate collagen production beneath the skin’s surface.
Unlike other treatments, ultherapy works within the skin but not on its surface, where it significantly heats the tissue where it causes coagulation of proteins such as collagen or elastin in that area which eventually lifts the tissue over time.
Ultherapy with Botox and Fillers
The Daily Mail journalist followed up Ultherapy ultrasound treatment with tear trough fillers using Volbella and botox around the eye area to lift the brow and reduce crow’s feet.
The overall impact was described as follows:
“I have never received so many compliments in my life. The Botox and filler had made an almost immediate difference in the darkness and wrinkling.”
“But the real difference didn’t happen until about three months later, when I began to need less concealer.”
“Today, the darkness and wrinkles around my eyes are dramatically reduced.”
“Though the fillers and Botox will last only three months, the effects of the ultrasound will continue to increase collagen production. It won’t halt the ageing of my eyes but it will slow it down.”
