Ask A Doctor Question: 

I am wondering if Laser treatment works for baggy eyes. I have seen reports about this, some positive and some not.

As you have seen from reading online reports, not everyone is happy about their laser procedures for eye rejuvenation.  This is because not everyone is a good candidate for laser treatments.  Some may be more appropriate for surgery and others for injections.  The only way to know if you are a good candidate for laser treatments around the eyes is to see pictures.  Questions we would have are – Is it the upper lid or lower lid that is baggy?  Is it a tired appearance under the eyes that is a priority?  Is the skin under the eye too loose for lasers or injections?  All of the answers factor into the recommendation for treatment, but we cannot say without seeing a photo which would be best for you.  We do know that lasers are a good option for the right candidate.

It all depends on what the "baggy" component of the eye appearance is caused by.  Ultherapy is more likely to be beneficial as a non invasive eye lid rejuvenation treatment.
