What causes eye bags?
Just like the rest of your body, the skin under your eyes is prone to signs of aging. Most of the time, signs of aging such as wrinkles, hollowness, and skin laxity come from a loss of collagen in the skin.
Collagen is the body’s favorite protein. It is essentially the building block of your skin. Think of it as the framework that keeps your skin plump, firm, and smooth. We naturally produce less and less collagen as we age, which causes the skin to sag around the skeletal structure.
Loss of collagen in the skin underneath the eyes causes the skin to sag and droop, resulting in those pesky under eye bags that can make you look older or more tired than you really are. Loss of collagen also creates hollow space under the eyes, causing shadows to make the space look dark.
Luckily, Entre Nous Aesthetics offers a non-surgical solution for eye bag removal that will leave you looking and feeling completely revitalized. For eye bag removal in Menlo Park, our expert injectors use dermal hyaluronic acid fillers to fill in the hollow skin underneath the eyes. They strategically inject these fillers to create the appearance of smooth, healthy, refreshed under eyes.
Curious about hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally occuring in the body and is found in your eyes, joints, and skin. Doctors and scientists have formulated dermal fillers out of hyaluronic acid because it is naturally occuring and therefore incredibly safe to use for injectable cosmetic purposes. It works to replace lost volume with a very subtle and natural-looking substance!
Hollowness versus pigment
As you’ve just learned, loss of collagen causes a hollow indentation under the eyes, which can create a shadow resulting in a tired appearance. However, there is another potential reason for your dark under eyes: pigmentation.
Pigmentation is a different issue than skin laxity, and is most often caused by genetics or sun damage. If pigmentation is the cause for your dark under eyes, you may not be an ideal candidate for dermal fillers. We will discuss your candidacy during your initial consultation.
What to expect from eye bag removal treatment in Menlo Park
Each of our treatments begins with an in-depth consultation. We value this process highly because it allows us to truly get to know you and your needs.
During your consultation, you’ll sit down with one of our highly-skilled and compassionate team members and we’ll discuss your medical history, unique concerns, and desired results. This will allow us to craft a comprehensive and customized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns.
Your aesthetician may take a close look at your face and under your eyes to determine the best type of filler and amount needed to achieve optimal results.
You’ll also be able to ask any questions you might have about the treatment during this time, and we would be more than happy to answer them!
Eye bag removal treatment
You’ll arrive for your treatment and we will lead you to one of our comfortable and sanitary treatment rooms. Your aesthetician may look closely once again at your face before beginning the procedure. You will sit back while your aesthetician strategically injects the dermal filler in the appropriate spots under your eyes.
The treatment typically takes less than 15 minutes, and during that time you are welcome to chat with your provider or simply lay back and relax. You’ll leave the office already seeing results, and you’ll be able to enjoy your revitalized appearance with no downtime!

Commonly asked questions about under eye bag removal in Menlo Park
Do the under eye injections hurt?
Typically, our patients report that they experience very little if any discomfort during the under eye injections. However, your comfort is our top priority, so we always have a topical numbing agent available for those who desire it!
How does filler treatment get rid of dark circles?
This under eye bag removal treatment can help alleviate dark circles underneath the eye by smoothing out and filling in the area, thus reducing any shadows and appearances of dark circles.
How long do under eye filler results last?
Because the under eye area is not a very high impact spot, meaning our facial expressions don’t touch the area much and neither do our hands., The dermal fillers placed there often last up to a year or more!
How long does the procedure take?
The injections for removing under eye bags typically take less than 15 minutes. During that time you are welcome to listen to music, chat with your provider, or just sit back and relax! Following the procedure, you are free to resume your daily activities.

Whether you want the ultra-chiseled look or just a subtle enhancement, we can help you define your jawline with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Our expert aestheticians study the contours of your face in order to optimize results that are best suited for your features. Results can be as dramatic or subtle as you’d like!
Another fantastic way to kick-start collagen production in your skin is with an IPL photofacial. This aesthetic treatment utilizes light and heat energy to heat the layers of your skin and induce collagen output, creating a plumper, firmer, more youthful complexion! An IPL photofacial is a great preventative measure and also tackles existing signs of aging such as:
- Brown “sun” spots
- Sun damage
- Enlarged/visible blood vessels
- Rosacea & redness
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scars
A good way to balance your newly enhanced eye look is with lip augmentation! Lip augmentation is the process by which one of our expert injectors adds volume to your lips with dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are completely safe, as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. Lip fillers can treat:
- Thin lips
- Asymmetrical lips
- Imbalanced lips
- Wrinkled and/or deflated lips
Pairing this treatment with your under eye bag removal will give you a balanced, revitalized, and refreshed appearance. You can kiss looking tired and worn down goodbye!
