Under eye bag help
Aug 28, 2011
Does Sculptra help under eye bags.
Response from Dr. Pierone
Sculptra can be used to improve the under eye appearance. However, this is an advanced injection technique, should only be performed by injectors with extensive experience, and the therapy can only partially address this problem. Sculptra may be injected deep in this region, just above the bone, and helps restore lost volume. If the product is injected too close to the surface it may produce visible nodules.
Artefill is an alternative filler, not approved for HIV lipoatrophy, but may be very useful for treatment of under eye volume loss. We use Artefill to "spackle" in the volume loss around the under eye bags, and when done correctly, results in a smooth and natural appearance.
I hope this information helps and best of luck!
