In the previous article, it was mentioned that patients of all age groups are troubled by their eye-bags but not all are prepared to take the risks of surgery. There are alternatives to surgical eye-bag removal such as non-surgical eye-bag removal through the use of fillers and botox (used to temporarily reduce the visibility of protruding fat under the eyes).
Over the past few years, improvements in medical technology has led to a new technique for non-surgical eye bag removal. Therefore, in this week's article - part 2 - we will be introducing the PDO (Polydioxanone) powder filler for the treatment of sunken eyes where it is used along side radio frequency (RF) Cannula non-surgical eye bag removal. Despite its recent invention, its increasing popularity around the world shows its true potential. While no one has been interviewed using PDO Powder filler except for the inventor himself Dr Han-Jin Kwon, we will be explaining its amazing benefits to you today.
So how does it work?
After the radio frequency (RF) Cannula is performed to break down the ligaments , it's time to fill up the sunken eye-bags. PDO powder filler is used as a combination of collagen stimulators and filler to plump up the sunken eye-bags to give it a natural look, this results in the tightening and firming of the skin around the eyes.
How is the PDO Powder Filler prepared?
Similar to Sculptra, PDO Power Filler requires reconstitution. First step is mixing the PDO powder with sterile water, and shaking it for about 20-30 minutes (not continuously but periodically) to allow the PDO powder to reconstitute and ready for injection.
Being non-invasive, it has no downtime and it only takes 15-20 minutes per procedure. Can be used superficially to treat areas like lower eye areas to fill up the sunken eyes.
Results can be seen in 2 to 4 weeks post-treatment and can last for 1 to 2 years.
