The new Neotensil for undereye bags – does it work?
In my opinion, no it’s not worth the money. Here’s why. It’s basically a type of gentle glue-like compound (a polymer), that gets applied to the skin as a liquid. When the liquid dries and “hardens,” it shrinks slightly pulling the baggy skin with it.
It does work – but just for day or less depending on what you are doing. If you are upside down in downdog and sweating, it may not stay on as well, for example.
The big problem is cost!!! At $500.00 for 50 applications, that is $10 a day if you use it daily, and amounts to a whopping $3,650.00 a year. That’s a lot to pay for something temporary. More here on other eye area options.
If you have large bags, surgery may still be your best option. If you have smaller bags, the nonsurgical options include tightening the skin and filling the hollow beneath the bag which often works quite well. Experts only please on these options.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
