The Doctors: Surgery To Remove Under-Eye Bags
After a woman tried a product that claimed to help reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, she decided to go to Dr Andrew Ordon in hopes of a more permanent solution. Dr Ordon noticed three fat pockets underneath each of the women’s eyes, which meant she needed to undergo scar-less eyelid surgery to remove the fat pockets. She offered to do the surgery for her. To protect her eyes during surgery, he first had to put in eye shields, and then anesthetized her eye lids before going inside the eye to remove the fat. He didn’t remove all the fat because he didn’t want to leave her looking hollow, but he certainly took out a good amount to leave her without bags. Her before and after was truly remarkable even just one week after surgery!

The Doctors: The Truth About Teeth Whitening
There’s a good chance you’ve seen pictures of celebrities on Instagram holding a blue light mouthpiece, claiming it’s responsible for their pearly-white teeth. Dr Sako Karakozian explained that the light is usually coupled with some kind of peroxide gel or pen. The peroxide is what actually does the whitening. The light is debatable, but the heat coming from the light could dry your teeth quicker making them look whiter. But when your teeth are dry, they’re more susceptible to discoloration or damage. If you have veneers, it’s important to know that those won’t whiten. Always talk to your dentist before trying any sort of treatment.
Coffee is one of the biggest causes of teeth stains, so rinse your mouth out with water right after you have a cup to help.
The Doctors: Skin Hangover Kit

The women applied the masks and then removed them a short while later to see if they made their eyes and skin look refreshed. Nothing can improve the appearance of your skin like proper hydration and a good amount of sleep, but how did the mask hold up? The women liked the way their skin felt, but Dr Ordon explained that there are plenty of products available that can moisturize the skin and help tighten things up to reduce the appearance of bags.
