A sunken, hollow under-eye area can age your face and accentuate dark circles, giving you a continuously exhausted appearance.

You might have tried many skincare products, and home remedies to lessen the appearance of your prominent under-eye bags but found that nothing works.

If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution, there are many services out there to improve the look of the under-eye area, from eye bag surgery to dermal fillers.

But which one do you pick? Won’t you get the same results anyway?

In this article, we’ll go through the various eye bag removal services in Singapore, so you have all the information to make the right decision for yourself.

What causes eye bags?

1. Skin Laxity and Loss of Mid Cheek Fat

As a person ages, numerous physiological processes start to break down the muscles and tissues that support the eyelids, and excess fat protrudes out due to skin and ligament laxity.

Furthermore, we tend to lose fatty tissue in our cheeks more quickly than under our eyes, often leading to deep bulging under the eyes.

2. Genetics

Some people have strong genetic tendencies that lead to deep-cut creases or excess fat in the lower eyelid area. As they become older, this makes eye bags more noticeable.

3. Stress

When you’re under stress, your body diverts blood to your essential organs, making you look tired and pale. in turn, this makes your dark circles stand out more.

Additionally, stress impacts a person’s sleep cycle. The blood vessels then enlarge due to insufficient restorative sleep, boosting blood flow to the capillaries in the lower eyelid and accentuating the eye bags.

What cosmetic procedures can remove eye bags?

For many years, individuals who wanted to get rid of their eye bags had no choice except to undergo plastic surgery.

This often entailed plastic surgeons performing a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and reduce the fat deposits that had developed around the eyes.

However, advances in non-surgical medical technology for eye bag removal now give patients the option of eliminating the dangers and recovery time related to aesthetic surgery, such as scarring and anaesthesia risk.

1. Eye Bag Removal Surgery

Lower blepharoplasty, often known as eye bag removal surgery, is a surgical procedure that reduces or moves excess fats around the eyes. In addition to removing eye bags, it helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and correct skin laxity.

2. Non-Surgical Eye Bag Removal

Dermal Fillers

In order to correct skin concavities caused by unequal fat deposition and volume loss from ageing, hyaluronic acid fillers are injected at the proper depth. This revitalises and fills in hollow under-eye areas to lessen the appearance of eye bags.

This medical treatment is safe and efficient with minimal downtime when performed by an experienced professional!

It is also a reversible procedure that allows for subsequent modifications to improve the final outcome. This eye bag removal technique is temporary, lasting 9-12 months depending on the person.

Derma Spring Eye Thread Lift

Eye bags can be treated with the minimally invasive thread lift procedure called Derma Spring Eye.

The method makes use of the extremely biocompatible Polydioxanone (PDO) threads which are made specifically for the area around the eyes. The threads are inserted via an entry point created by a sharp needle.

This non-surgical eye bag removal method boosts major growth factors and collagen production, renewing the skin with cellular-level lifting and tightening benefits.

Other benefits of these eye threads include:

The effects of threads are gradual, with the main lifting effects becoming apparent over 1-4 months post-procedure. Sometimes, touch-ups are necessary for better, longer-lasting results.

Dynamis Pro SmoothEye®

SmoothEye® targets the sagging eye bags and lessens their appearance in addition to tightening the skin of the upper and lower eyelids. It can also be applied to the conjunctival side of the lower lid.

The Dynamis Pro SMOOTH® mode treats the skin in an almost feather-like non-ablative manner using precisely controlled temperature deposition without the risk of burns or bruising.

The rapid, regulated surface tissue heating promotes neocollagenesis and collagen remodelling.

With minimal to no downtime and maximum patient comfort, SmoothEye® dramatically tightens loose, aged skin of the eyelids and periocular region. Additionally, venous stasis-related dark under-eye circles can be improved by this method as well.

Generally, this treatment takes 6 sessions to see results, with each session lasting 15-20 minutes.


High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses precise, medical-grade ultrasound to stimulate collagen at up to 4 separate levels of the skin for non-surgical skin tightening.

The three primary causes that worsen the appearance of eyebags—muscle and ligamentous laxity, thin skin, and excess fat in the lower eye area—are targeted and treated by this multifaceted method.

For both eyes, an eye bag reduction takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

You can immediately see the result after just one HIFU treatment session. The skin tightening effect will gradually improve over the course of 4-8 weeks as more collagen is produced.
