TREATMENT OF UNDER EYES CIRCLES USING FILLERS AND PDO THREAD
WHAT CAUSES BAGS UNDER THE EYES?
A few factors can make somebody have eye bags, and commonly, more than one of these factors add to eye bags concurrently. The most widely recognized reason for eye bags is the loss of fatty tissue in the upper cheeks, directly beneath the eye bags.

Nevertheless, since fillers used as a part of the under-eye region are gentler and less viscous, they don’t last long as thicker fillers, despite the fact that they are made of hyaluronic acid. Expect filler treatment for under-eye bags to be redone each 3-6 months.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT PDO THREADS?
Another rising treatment choice for eye bags is PDO threads. PDO, or polydioxanone, is a biodegradable polymer that has been utilized in medicine as the essential component of absorbable sutures. This polymer has been re-purposed as a fine thread that can be conveyed to the subcutaneous space by means of a cannula. PDO threads can be utilized rather than filler for eye bags and astounding results will be accomplished. The PDO is degraded by the body over a while and during this procedure, collagen is stimulated so the results might be durable for a long time.
