What Are Some Periorbital (Eye) Issues Addressed at Beatitude?
Periorbital issues include dark circles, bags, and hollow under eyes; sagging upper lids; and wrinkles around eyes (crow’s feet). For certain issues like sagging upper lids and bags under eyes, surgery may be the best treatment. If the client is expecting surgical results, Dr. Chang will recommend surgical consultation.

What Treatments Are Available for Dark Circles and Hollow Under Eyes?
Volume loss under eyes (hollows) can be addressed with hyaluronic fillers like Belotero or Juvederm. Dark Circles are generally genetic, difficult to improve and costly. Many of our clients like injection of their own platelet-rich plasma(PRP)* for brighter tone. PRP can be done 2 to 4 times a year. We also recommend using concealers which are very affordable.
*PRP is obtained by taking a small tube of a client’s blood. It’s spun for 5 minutes in a special centrifuge. This process separates out red blood cells leaves golden fluid that has concentrated platelets. This fluid can be injected back into the clients skin for rejuvenating effects.
