New treatment diminishes the “bags” under your eyes
DENVER — They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but sometimes the window dressing needs a little sprucing up. Whether from aging or stress, bags under your eyes can make you look tired and even ill.
Parker resident Janelle Hiles says her bags derail the impression she wants to make.
“You work out so hard,” Hiles says. “You do all you can on your own…these are things you need a little bit of help with.”
Dr. Michael McCracken of the McCracken Eye and Face Institute got rid of Janelle’s bags using the popular wrinkle filler Restylane.
This process usually causes some bruising and a short recovery time, but a new procedure uses a medical instrument called a canula to avoid those side effects.
“The canula allows us to make one entry point through the skin and muscle and reduce the amount of tissue trauma and bruising,” Dr. McCracken says.
After a 20 minute procedure, Janelle says she had a refreshed look and even went right back to work after her appointment.
“It’s just the confidence, being able to look in the mirror and look at yourself as the age you feel and not the age you are,” she says.
The procedure costs about $500 for the first injection, depending on the case, and can last from between six months to a year in most patients.
