10 Minute Nonsurgical Treatment of Bags and Dark Under Eye Circles
Dr. Nayak has developed a technique to use injectable fillers to correct the tear trough, orbital rim, and cheek hollows in a way that often creates a prettier and more natural look than even a mid facelift and lower blepharoplasty. This technique has received considerable national and international attention, with patients coming to St. Louis for this procedure from across the US and Canada!
Patients are welcome to fly in for same day consultation and treatment, and can return home the same day.
The procedure takes about ten minutes, and is done with numbing cream alone. Dr. Nayak uses a special instrument, called a “cannula,” to perform the procedure in a way that is almost painless and usually generates no significant bruising.
Mild swelling is possible, and usually occurs the next day, lasting for 2-3 days. Significant bruising and swelling are possible but rare, especially when patients carefully avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, motrin/ibuprofen, alleve/naprosyn, fish oil, vitamin E, and flax seed oil for 2 weeks prior to treatment. To further minimize bruising, Dr. Nayak recommending avoiding exercise for 24 hours. Beyond that, there is no aftercare required.
Cost for the procedure ranges from $650 for filling of the tear trough alone to $2000 if the front of the cheek is also significantly aged. Results last years before they completely fade, but most patients choose to do a touchup visit approximately annually. On the rare occasion that it is desired, the treatment is also entirely reversible.
