Beyond their function as an organ that allows you to process visual details, your eyes have a strong social significance when you are engaged in social events. You probably agree by now that your eyes hold the highest face value among the rest of the facial features.
Obvious eye bags are a common complaint many people have. Eye bags are usually a cosmetic concern and rarely a sign of medical condition you need to worry about.
Fortunately, there are some effective ways to enhance your eyes by reducing the appearance of eye bags or remove them – non-surgically.
Non-Surgical Eye Bag Treatments
Until recently, eye bag removal would mean having to go under the knife to remove the fatty tissue deposits. During the procedure, the cosmetic surgeons remove and adjust the fat under the eyes to eliminate the eye bags. During the procedure, the surgeon may also remove the excess skin under the eyes.
However, there is a rising demand for non-surgical option to remove eye bags because people are becoming more demanding and are willing to pay a premium for effective results – without the downtime associated with surgery.
This has led Korean doctors to devise a new method for non-surgical eye bag removal.

An innovative, advanced Korean technology allows medical aesthetic practitioners to perform non-surgical eye bag removal conveniently under local anesthesia.
Using a special micro-insulated needle, radiofrequency waves are delivered precisely into the eye bags to melt the excess fats in the eye bags.
This is done by applying some numbing cream, followed by some local anesthesia around the eye bags to reduce any discomfort to the patient. Micro-insulated needle will be repeatedly introduced directly to the eye bags to melt the fats. The melted fats will then drain out naturally via our circulatory system.
During the whole process, the parts of the needle that are exposed to the skin surface are insulated. This is to protect the skin from the heat transmitted by the radiofrequency energy.
At the same time, the treatment also tightens and firms the loose skin under the eyes by stimulating collagen production and remodelling after the melted fats are removed.
Is One Session of AGNES Eye Bag Removal Enough?
You should be able to see some results after one session. However, depending on the severity of eye bags, the doctor may recommend you to go for a single treatment or a program of 3 sessions for a longer-lasting result.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The treatment involves using a microneedle to make several micro-wounds on the eye bags to deliver radiofrequency waves to melt the fats repeatedly. You can expect some mild swelling and redness immediately after the treatment.
The downtime of this treatment is about 4-5 days and you should be able to partake in social activities after that.
The greatest benefit of AGNES Eye Bag Removal treatment is that it takes only about 40 minutes to complete and there is minimal risk of scarring as no surgical wounds are created.
Dermal Filler for Non-Surgical Eye Bag Treatment
