What you need to know about a non-surgical eyelid lift

If your aging eyes are making look tired all the time, and you’d like to refresh your appearance without plastic surgery, a non-surgical eyelid lift can help.However, it’s always important to have realistic expectations about any kind of cosmetic procedure. So what are some of the most important things you need to know about a non-surgical eyelid lift?

Why your eyes may need a ‘lift’
The thin fragile skin around the eyelids is susceptible to wrinkles and furrows as you age. In addition, the eyelids often droop, and hollows, fat pockets, or dark circles develop under the eyes.

What you need to know about a non-surgical eyelid lift
There are several benefits to doing a non-surgical eyelid lift. Best of all is the fact that there are no scars, and there is usually no bruising, swelling, or downtime. Most of the procedures can be done in 30 minutes or less, making them ideal for people on the go.

However, it’s also important to remember that these non-surgical cosmetic options are temporary, and so the effects won’t last as long as they do with a surgical eyelid lift. Depending on the procedure chosen, the results can last anywhere from 4 months to 2 years.

Injectables can ‘lift’ the eyelid
Injectables are increasingly being used by as part of anti-aging treatment to lift and rejuvenate the eyelid. There are several options to choose from, including botox, dysport, and xeomin. These all help to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and depress the eyebrows. Relaxing the muscles leads to a minimal lifting of the brows, and softening of wrinkles.  The effects are temporary and last for 4 to 6 months.
