Under-Eye Bags: Busting Myths and Aesthetic Treatment Options

Eyebag myths and treatments | RJ CLINIC

Eyebags are a pain in the ass. Under-eye bags are a common cosmetic concern that can make you look tired and aged beyond your years. No matter how much you try to cover them up with concealer, they always seem to find a way to peek through and ruin your otherwise perfect look. But fear not, my fellow beauty lovers, because there is a new kid on the block when it comes to getting rid of those pesky bags - eyebag laser treatment (let me get back to you on this later as you scroll down).

Unfortunately, there are many myths and misconceptions surrounding this issue, which can make it difficult to know how to address it. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the most common myths and misconceptions about under-eye bags, as well as the aesthetic treatments that can help reduce their appearance.

Myths and Misconceptions About Under-Eye Bags:

Myth: Under-eye bags are caused by lack of sleep.

Fact: While lack of sleep can exacerbate under-eye bags, it is not the primary cause. Genetics, age, and fluid retention are all factors that can contribute to the development of under-eye bags.

Myth: Eye creams can get rid of under-eye bags.

Fact: While eye creams can help hydrate the skin and improve its overall appearance, they cannot eliminate under-eye bags. Aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers or surgery may be necessary to achieve significant improvement.

Myth: Under-eye bags only affect older people.

Fact: While under-eye bags are more common in older individuals, they can affect people of all ages due to factors such as genetics, allergies, or fluid retention.

Myth: Drinking more water can eliminate under-eye bags.

Fact: While dehydration can exacerbate under-eye bags, drinking more water alone is not enough to eliminate them. Other factors such as genetics and age must also be addressed through aesthetic treatments. In fact, some found drinking too much water especially before sleep worsens the eyebags in the morning due to water retention.

Myth: Surgery is the only option for addressing under-eye bags.

Fact: While surgery is an effective treatment option for severe cases, there are many non-invasive aesthetic treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of under-eye bags without the need for surgery.

Aesthetic Treatments for Under-Eye Bags:

Now that we've dispelled some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding under-eye bags, let's take a look at the aesthetic treatments that can help reduce their appearance:

Dermal fillers:

Dermal fillers are a popular treatment option for under-eye bags. They work by adding volume to the area, which can help smooth out the appearance of the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used for this purpose, as they can hydrate the skin and improve elasticity. However, dermal fillers will only help to HIDE those pesky bags, not exactly treating them. It it a great option of course if you have dark eye circles and deep tear troughs.

Eyebag Lasers:

First things first, what is eyebag laser treatment?

Essentially, it's a non-surgical procedure that uses a laser to reduce the eyebag fats bulge, tighten the skin under your eyes and hence, reduce the appearance of those pesky bags. The laser heats up the fats, melting them away and tighetns the skin, causing it to contract and produce new collagen, which helps to firm up the area and give it a more youthful appearance.

Now, I know what you're thinking - "a laser near my eyes? That sounds terrifying!" But trust me, it's not as scary as it sounds. The procedure is quick and painless, and you'll be in and out of the office in no time. Plus, the results are seriously impressive without the need for surgery.

Not only does eyebag laser treatment help to reduce the appearance of bags under your eyes by 50 to 70%, but it can also help to improve the texture and tone of your skin. And the best part? There's minimal downtime as compared to surgery.

But here's the thing - eyebag laser treatment isn't cheap. But hey, you get what you pay for, right? And when it comes to looking and feeling your best, sometimes you just have to invest a little bit of money.

So, if you're tired of trying to hide your eyebags with makeup and are ready to take the plunge and try something new, I highly recommend giving eyebag laser treatment a shot. Trust me, your eyes (and your self-esteem) will thank you. And who knows, maybe you'll even be able to ditch the concealer for good.

Eyebag Surgery:

In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to remove under-eye bags. This procedure, known as blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that "removes" excess fat and skin from under your eyes, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful appearance. Essentially, it's like hitting the reset button on your under-eye area.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so you won't feel a thing. And while there is some downtime involved, the results are seriously impressive. Not only will eyebag surgery treatment get rid of those pesky bags, but it can also help to improve the overall appearance of your eyes. Plus, it's a one-time procedure, so you won't have to worry about going back for touch-ups.

Other less effective treatments for eyebags:

  1. Laser resurfacing: Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This can help improve the appearance of under-eye bags by tightening and smoothing the skin, usually helps in the wrinkled skin above the eyebags. Not really to help the eyebag fats itself. Treatments like these are Fotono 4d, CO2 resurfacing laser.

  2. Radiofrequency treatments: Radiofrequency treatments use heat to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. This can help reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and improve the overall texture of the skin (but not the bags itself).

  3. Microneedling: Microneedling involves the use of a device that creates tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulates collagen production and can help reduce the appearance of under-eye bags.


Under-eye bags can be a frustrating cosmetic concern, but there are many aesthetic treatments available to help reduce their appearance. By dispelling some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding this issue and exploring the various treatment options available, you can make an informed decision about how to address your under-eye bags. Whether you opt for dermal fillers, eyebag lasers, surgery, laser resurfacing, radiofrequency treatments, or microneedling.
