New product promises to erase under eye bags

Posted: Updated:
 From cucumbers and teabags to expensive eye creams. Women have tried everything to get rid of those under eye bags!

Now a new product developed by MIT scientists, could help.

It's being called Spanx for under eyes.

"Oh it's a huge problem! The first place we start to show aging is around our eyes because our eyes are the thinnest skin on our body,” Dr. Suzanne Bruce said.

Under eye bags are the first thing you see when you wake up.

"Every time you wake up and look in the mirror in the morning to apply your make up, that's one area that's very visible and it's just a tired look. So this will be exciting if it'll work,” Connie Kirk, a patient, said.

A brand new product called Neotensil promises to erase those under eye bags and smooth wrinkles.

"They call it invisible shapewear for the eyes. No shots, no fillers and you just get to see that instant smoothness,” Bruce said.

Created right here by MIT scientists you can apply Neotensil in the morning and use a special remover to take it off at night.

"It's a polymer film so you put on the first layer just a simple application then right after that put on a second layer and it polymerizes into a thin invisible film which holds the thin skin underneath the eyes smooth and taught and holds that eye bag in place,” Bruce said.

Within an hour you start noticing a difference and the effects last up to 16 hours.

Neotensil is available only in doctors’ offices and is recommended for someone with moderate, not severe eye bags.

It costs about $500 for the kit, which has 50 applications.
