Eye Bags Treatments

Eye bags (or bags under eyes) refer to mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes. This page discusses the medical treatments available for eye bags.

While eye bags are for the most part harmless, they are a cosmetic concern to many. Some medical treatments can be used to remove/reduce eye bags. We discuss some common ones below.

Note: Read also our Home Remedies for Eye Bags to find out how you can possibly solve the problem on your own.

Medications

Some topical medications may be used to effectively reduce eye bags, but the results are most likely temporary; permanent results are not promised. If the eye bags are induced by an allergy, allergy medications may help.

Cosmetic Therapies

Wrinkle treatments like laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and derma fillers can be used to reduce under-eye puffiness. Such treatments have the effect of tightening the skin and improving skin tone, but may not actually remove the eye bags.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, plastic surgery done to the eyelids, can be performed to remove eye bags. While various methods are available, the procedure generally involves surgical removal/redistribution of skin, muscle and fat tissues around the eyes. Blepharoplasty may also be used for other cosmetic purposes, such as correcting droopy eyelids and transforming “single eyelid” into “double eyelid”. Like any surgical procedure, it comes with some risks. Read a separate page on blepharoplasty for details.
