Aegyo Sal/eɪgoʊ saʊər/ the little muscle band outlining your lower eyelid, often mistaken as eyebag.
Aegyo Sal, loosely translated as beautiful/cute/winsome skin, is commonly mistaken as an eyebag problem and while eyebags are formed when bags of fats from under the eye migrates forward, aegyo sal is actually caused by the enlargement of the pretarsal muscle under the lower eyelid. Most Asian celebrities spot aegyo sal, male or females, and these aegyo sal actually gives your eyes a 3D look, and enhances your smile even more.
How is Aegyo Sal Formed?
Muscle anatomy of the face
The pretarsal muscle is located just underneath the lower eyelid, and hyperactivity of the pretarsal muscle increases the muscle strength and like all muscles when stressed, grows in size and thus formed the aegyo sal we all see in most Asians.
DIY methods to create Aegyo Sal
According to www.ellejess.com, you can draw the lower outline of the pretarsal muscle with a darker shade of under eye maker, then use a lighter shade of under eye maker to to color the area between the lower eye and the drawn outline previously. Proceed to use blend the colors in naturally to achieve aegyo sal.
This make up method is good for people with existing but small aegyo sal, hoping to achieve a more dramatic and larger aegyo sal.
Very similar to the way you stick a tape on to achieve double eyelid, the same procedure can be done to create aegyo sal. Simply cut a thin strip of transparent tape, locate the pretarsal muscle, and stick the tap underneath the muscle and pushing it up, creating the bulge we called aegyo sal.
Dermal Filler to Create Aegyo Sal
What are Fillers?
Fillers are made of biodegradable material like Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in all living things and it breaks down within hours. Hyaluronic acid fillers are cross-linked to ensure that the body doesn’t metabolize the hyaluronic acid within hours, allowing some hyaluronic acid fillers to last from 3 months to a year after injection.
Fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, and are injected into either the skin tissue layers or on the bone to achieve reduction of static wrinkles appearance and enhancement of facial features due to its volumizing and sculpting abilities.
How does Fillers help create Aegyo Sal?
Fillers are injected underneath the skin and above the pretarsal muscle, therefore pumping up the area, giving you aegyo sal.
What to expect from Fillers?
Having fillers injection will not change your look into a different person. It enhances your current facial features while still looking like yourself and no one can tell that you actually had fillers injection done. Even though fillers are clinically proven to last up to a year, its longevity depends a lot on individuals’ metabolic rate, lifestyle, area injected and volume injected.
Side effects of Fillers
Complications from fillers are uncommon. Potential risks vary depending on the specific filler used and the relative permanence of the filler substance and include:
1. Acne-like skin eruptions
3. Bruising, bleeding from the injection site, swelling
4. Damage to the skin that results in a wound and possible scarring
5. Infection at the injection site
7. Palpability of the filler under the surface of the skin
8. Skin rash with itching
9. Skin redness
10. Under- or over-correction of wrinkles.
