Under-Eye Bag

As a fairly common cosmetic problem, bags under the eyes, which can occur in men and women at any age, are a formation that negatively affects facial aesthetics. Such formations that occur around the eyes, which have a thinner skin structure compared to other parts of the body, can usually occur due to age progression, which, if left untreated, causes the individual to constantly look tired and older than they are. Although they occur under the eyes, such negativities, which also damage a person’s general health and psychological structure, are problems that can be treated in a short time.

Bags under the eyes, which are divided into 3 different types according to the shapes of the bags formed, are called type 1, type 2 and type 3.

In under-eye bagging, called type 1, there is a swelling that is difficult to notice when viewed from the opposite side, but is felt by the patient. It usually occurs due to the oils that accumulate under the eyes.

Type 2 under-eye bags are a semicircular formation. Such swellings, which occur in a semicircular shape under the eyes, are in a structure that is easily noticed when viewed from across.

Type 3 bags under the eyes, on the other hand, contain swellings that can cause the individual to look tired, sleepless and old all the time. These types of formations, which are much more pronounced than other types, cause problems to the extent that they cause concerns about facial aesthetics.

The Reasons That Create Bags Under the Eye

The biggest factor in the formation of bags under the eyes are the changes and deformations that occur on the skin due to aging. Bad-looking swellings that can also occur depending on the individual’s lifestyle and eating habits,

Lack of iron in the body

Deformations due to aging and loss of elasticity of the skin

Stress-related problems

Food, dust, etc. allergies such as

Smoking, alcohol habit


Kidney or thyroid diseases

Hormone disorder

It can occur depending on causes such as genetic predisposition.

Under-eye bags, which were treated only with surgical methods and fillings in the past, can be permanently removed with much more modern methods today. In procedures performed without the need for any surgical incision, the problem can be resolved without pain or suffering.

What is the Most Suitable Method for the Treatment of Under-Eye Bags?

Under-eye bags can be treated quite easily and with high success rates thanks to the advantages provided by today’s technology. A method called Agnes, which provides treatment in a fairly short time by using radiofrequency energy, is an application performed under local anesthesia. Agnes, which is considered the most appropriate treatment method for the destruction of under-eye bags, works by passing thin-tipped needles over the under-eye bags and applying radiofrequency energy under the skin. This treatment method, which does not have any side effects and provides the highest level of patient comfort, can be performed in a short period of about 1 hour, including numbing and treatment.
