What Causes Bags Under the Eyes? 

Bags under your eyes form when the skin under the eyes sags and folds. When we are younger the foundation below the skin made up of bone, muscle, and fat supports the under-eye area, preventing the formation of under-eye bags and dark circles. However, as we get older the foundation erodes causing the skin to sag and fold and the under-eye bags to appear.

EyeRise is a non-surgical technique for eye bag removal and under-eye circles, created by master injector Dr. Stephen Bracci and exclusively available at Verve. Dr. Bracci is known for treating the skin around the eye and the under-eye area and he developed this innovative method for reducing tired or aged appearance underneath the eyes. During the procedure, a tailored combination of cosmetic fillers are injected under the eyes, and the mid-face (malar) region. The goal of the procedure is to help reduce the appearance of eye bags and restore the skin to its original position, by using different cosmetic fillers for each layer underneath the skin. When you purchase a filler treatment, you are purchasing access to as many fillers, touch-ups, and follow ups it may take to get the optimal results.
