Conceal, don’t reveal those eyebags!

If you are one of those people who has tried everything for your eyebags and seen nothing improve, I have good news. Do not despair – the solution neither involves more concealers and masks nor eye creams and anti-puffiness patches. It wouldn’t even rob you of precious minutes of sleep in the morning and you will be hassle-free for an estimated 10 years. Sounds too good to be true? Check out Shens Clinic’s Korean Style Scarless Eyebag Removal.

We have all drooled over that perfect nose or flawless skin that Korean celebrities have but we also know that it has taken a surgery or two to get such perfection. Having trained in Korea, Dr Shens has successfully performed this signature procedure over 1000 times to date. The adage ’no pain, no gain’ doesn’t even apply because thanks to the local anaesthesia, barely noticeable incision in the eyelid and downtime of 20 minutes in total, patients can walk out instantly looking younger.

A few added bonuses – the stitches dissolve naturally and with minimal bruising, the downtime is almost non-existent. You may be walking away with a lighter pocket of about $3000 to $6000 but hey, add up all you spend on makeup and you’ll see the long-term savings.

I’m sure you would have heard about other methods like radiofrequency/needle-based delivery of heat or lasers to melt away fats. I’ve done the research so you don’t have to. Although these procedures don’t involve skin incisions, multiple needles puncture the skin instead to deliver heat. This can result in burns, pigmentation, permanent scars and swelling, worse than the actual surgery. The melted fats sometimes can form cysts and can only be removed surgically so why go through the hassle when you can sort your eyebag situation out at one go?

Fillers and lasers may do the trick but these are temporary solutions to a permanent problem. There’s only so much makeup, massages and needles can do. Injecting substances like hyaluronic acid under the eye tricks us into thinking the bags have disappeared but they merely restore volume. With lasers, the skin is tightened and underlying collagen gets the opportunity to rebuild again to cover the swelling but eyebags that have excess skin will eventually need to be trimmed at a cost of about $600 to $800 and lasting about 12 months. So much for thinking lasers and fillers were the easy way out!
