A nonsurgical eyelid lift is a cosmetic procedure that can help rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes by addressing sagging or drooping eyelids, thinning of the skin, or herniation of the fat pads. Unlike traditional surgical eyelid lift procedures, a nonsurgical eyelid lift does not involve incisions, sutures, or general anesthesia. Instead, it typically uses noninvasive treatments and injectables to achieve the desired results.
Who is a candidate for a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
If you are experiencing heaviness of your upper eyelid, puffiness or bags of your lower eyelids, thinning of the skin, and general aging of the lids, then you are a good candidate for a nonsurgical eyelid lift.
What procedures are involved?
Depending on your concerns, we offer many nonsurgical options that include but are not limited to:
- Morpheus Skin Resurfacing: The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency helps to tighten the skin and melt fat at the deeper levels.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing: Tightening of the skin improves the overall appearance and helps to build collagen.
- Platelet rich plasma injections: PRP injections are known to stimulate collagen synthesis and the renewal process. It also helps to reduce herniated fat and decrease any puffiness under the eyes.
- Dermal fillers: If fat loss has occurred and you have a “sunken” look under the eyes, then dermal fillers might be a good option for you.
- Neurotoxins: Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines. When injected into the muscles around the eyes, they can help smooth out wrinkles and lift drooping eyelids, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The effects of neurotoxins typically last for three to four months.
Another option for nonsurgical eyelid lifts is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to plump up the skin. When injected into the area around the eyes, dermal fillers can help to fill in hollows and lift sagging skin, creating a smoother and more youthful appearance. The effects of dermal fillers typically last for six to twelve months.
It’s worth noting that while nonsurgical eyelid lifts can provide noticeable improvements in the appearance of the eyes, they may not be suitable for everyone. Those with more severe cases of sagging or drooping eyelids may still require surgical intervention for the best results. Additionally, those with certain medical conditions or allergies may not be good candidates for injectable treatments.
If you’re considering a nonsurgical eyelid lift, it’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced cosmetic professional. They can help you determine if this type of treatment is right for you and develop a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results. As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s also important to have realistic expectations and understand that the results may vary from person to person.
