If you have noticed that your eyelids are drooping or seemingly more hollow as you mature, then you may feel that your appearance is more tired, haggard and less enthusiastic than you would like. This can be a frustrating realization for anyone who is energetic but sees a face in the mirror that does not reflect this sense of vitality and vigor. The good news is that an eyelid lift can be an excellent option for reversing this sign of aging. What if surgery is not part of your plan? For those seeking a non-surgical option for an eyelid lift, here is information you should keep in mind:
Facial Fillers are Key
The secret to a successful non-surgical eyelid lift is in using the appropriate facial fillers to enhance volume in the eyelids. As the skin begins to lose volume, the eyelids may sag, or appear deflated. As a result, a facial filler can restore the buoyancy and youthful glow to the face, creating a non-surgical lift with impressive results.
Recovery Time is Greatly Reduced
Given the minimally-invasive nature of this procedure, combined with Dr. Lewen’s experience with advanced injection techniques, downtime after a non-surgical eyelid lift is much shorter than from a traditional surgical procedure. Many of our patients experience minimal or no discomfort, though some bruising and swelling can be expected.
As with all procedures, recovery time will vary depending on the individual and the volume of product used for the lift. Patients are free to resume normal exercise after 24 hours. Results are immediate; however, the full results will be visible after allowing a full two weeks for the product to settle.
Consider Adding Additional Non-Surgical Procedures
Many of our patients find it convenient to include other non-surgical procedures with their non-surgical eyelid lift. Some of the most common minimally-invasive procedures to combine are cheek fillers, skin resurfacing, temple filler rejuvenation and tear trough filler rejuvenation. During your consultation, Dr. Lewen will discuss what combination of non-surgical procedures would be best to help you achieve your desired goals.
