The new Neotensil for undereye bags – does it work?

There's a buzz about Neotensil as a fix for undereye bags. Does it work? Is it worth the money?

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

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
