Our skin becomes loose, saggy and wrinkled as we age due to the loss of elasticity, collagen and volume, and environmental factors (like UV) and gravity. When skin laxity affects the tissue around the eyes, it makes patients look years older. This is why many patients are getting non-surgical eye lifts, also called the liquid eye lift, to brighten, enhance and shed years off their appearance.
However, patients aren’t only getting non-surgical eyelifts for cosmetic purposes, but for medical purposes as well. For example, extreme skin laxity can limit a person’s peripheral vision when the upper eye skin becomes too baggy and sags over their eye. This threatens the safety of patients when carrying out activities like riding a bicycle or driving a car.
Non-Surgical Eye Lift Procedure
While traditional eye lifts, known as blepharoplasty, are minimally invasive plastic surgery, many patients don’t want to or cannot undergo surgery. Thanks to a combination of cosmetic injectables and neuro-modulators, non-surgical eyelifts have become the ideal alternative for treating excess skin.
The non-surgical alternative lifts the eyelid’s saggy tissue into an appealing position, like traditional eye lifts. However, instead of physically carving out excess fat and skin tissue, this non-surgical approach uses injectables to get rid of bags and wrinkles while adding volume to deeply recessed areas.
The benefits of a non-surgical eye lift include:
- No surgery – this non-invasive alternative is the ideal solution for patients who are nervous about getting surgery and potential scarring.
- Shorter recovery time – no surgery means shorter recovery times for patients.
- Natural appearance – Facial fillers used in a non-surgical eye lift are injected in a manner that looks natural. This alternative is ideal for patients who want to look livelier without making dramatic changes to their appearance.
- Cost-effective – an affordable alternative to traditional blepharoplasty.
