With aging the inevitable dropping of eyelids occurs because gravity kicks in and the connective tissue weakens with time. With eyelids it seems as if our eyes start to close. With certain conditions and illness only one eyelid “drops”. Until now a surgery called blepharoplasty was the only option for eyelid correction. Because of technological advances we can for the first time in recent years prevent this condition from happening. Therefor, it is not necessary to wait for your eyelids to start descending and then resort to surgery.
Generally we advise preventive treatments after you reach the age of 35. Non-surgical eyelid lifting is used for lifting slightly or moderately lowered eyelids. There is no dependency on treatments nor does your condition worsen with time. It is advised to perform maintenance treatments once a year for the results to last longer. Therefor, if we begin with preventive treatments surgery may not be necessary. Once we have lifted the eyelids and opened up the eyes, for even better results we advise that you treat the wrinkles around the eyes as well.
Is a method which injects Co2 gas into the eyelid and lifts it with creation of new collagen. Injections are not painful but minor uneasiness is possible during the treatment. In average 3 treatments are needed. Usually there is no recovery period needed but sometimes the eyelids can swell up a bit and this condition can last from 1 to 2 days.
This method uses electro-magnetic energy which induces microscopic damages underneath your skin. The damaged part is then ejected and replaced with new tissue, while the existing collagen strengthens. Due to this process a skin tightening effect occurs, followed by eyelid lifting. In the same way we can at the same time reduce the wrinkles around one's eyes. This eyelid lifting treatment takes only 1 to 2 minutes and the difference is usually visible immediately after the treatment. The final result is visible 6 to 9 months after the final treatment and until then you will see daily improvements. 2 to 3 treatments are needed and the interval between them is 30 to 90 days. If there are no results after 30 days then the eyelid cannot be lifted with this treatment but only future lowering of the eyelid is prevented and the treatment has a preventive role. A possible short-term swelling of the eyelids is possible after the treatment. It is necessary to care for your eyelids with a generic cream. No recuperation or recovery time is needed. During the treatment you will feel minor pain or discomfort.
This laser functions on same principles like fractional radio-waves only optical energy is used instead of electro-magnetic one. 1 to 3 treatments are needed. The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable and several days may be needed for recuperation. The result is not visible immediately but gradually in the months after the treatment. Final results are visible in 9 to 12 months, which is how long it takes for the tissue to be replaced..
