Although most people might thing they look like nothing more than bags under the eyes, such issues can sometimes turn out to be malar bags or festoons. Swelling and wrinkles in the region below a person’s eyes can make their face look tired and older than they are. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Professional treatment can reduce such issues and optimise your appearance. A range of treatment methods can be used here depending on the patient’s specific situation, from outpatient hyaluronan injections to surgical procedures. Dr Köhler can hold a personal consultation with you here at the prevention-center in Zurich to discuss whether you would be a suitable candidate for this treatment and which method would be best to reduce your malar bags and festoons.
