Can eye bags form on a teenager?
My daughter is only turning 18 this year but she already has very obvious eye bags. Is this normal?
Thanks for your question. It is not uncommon for teenagers to have eye bags. I do see quite a number of young patients coming for consultations regarding their eye bags. I usually will examine the patient to ensure that an eye bag is the predominant problem before discussing the treatment options.
A general approach will be for me to help the patients understand the surgical and non-surgical options. If the patient decides against surgery, and some instances, t I will offer a non-surgical solution called Eye Revo which originated from Dr Kobayashi in Japan and commercialized by a dermatologist called Dr Ahn in South Korea.
All that is required is some topical and local anaesthesia followed by the application of a fine filament introduced under the skin to stimulate shrinkage of the eye bag fat pads and then tightening of the skin. I hope this helps with your question.
