As you search the shelves in the beauty aisles, you find bottles and bottles of eye creams claiming to reduce under-eye bags and puffiness. Unfortunately, these products are very unlikely to give you the results you desire. If you are looking for how to treat puffy eyes and get rid of under-eye bags, the most effective treatment option is blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.
Eye Creams Are Simply an Additional Moisturizer
You use your daily moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and reduce signs of aging. But is adding an eye cream for puffiness or fine lines really any different? The likely answer is “no.” The majority of eye creams you find on the shelves use the same ingredients already found in your daily moisturizer. The addition of an often-expensive eye cream really won’t do anything different.
Eliminate all those containers of eye cream from your daily routine and consider getting real results from eyelid surgery.
Eyelid Surgery Delivers the Results You Are Looking For
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, addresses sagging skin around the eyes as well as drooping upper eyelids and bags under the eyes in ways that at-home efforts cannot. Depending on your desired results, you may have upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or both. These procedures typically take one to two hours and require at least a week of recovery time. Once the recovery is over and your new results are revealed, you will see the skin around your eyes is tighter, bags are reduced and you have a much more youthful appearance.
