Can a Nonsurgical Eyelid Lift Get Rid of Under-Eye Bags?
Are under-eye bags making you look older than your years? If so, a nonsurgical eyelid lift might be the ideal solution to rejuvenate your appearance. The natural aging process causes your eyelids to start to sag, and loose skin develops beneath your eyes.
If you have under-eye bags, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Timothy Roth at Clovis Laser Center in Clovis, CA to discuss how a nonsurgical eyelid lift can give you a younger appearance. Dr. Roth will listen to your goals and then determine if the cosmetic procedure is the right choice for your needs.
How is a nonsurgical eyelid lift performed?
Dr. Roth uses the Colibri handpiece with the Alma Opus®. Your under-eye area can look renewed, resulting in a younger appearance following treatment.
The Alma Opus device is a noninvasive aesthetic technology that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to address a variety of skin concerns, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines. The Colibri handpiece is a specialized applicator that is designed to target specific areas of the face, including the under-eye area, to provide a nonsurgical under-eyelid lift.
The Colibri handpiece uses a combination of plasma energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin around the eyes. The microneedles create tiny channels in the skin, allowing the plasma energy to penetrate deeper into the tissue and trigger a healing response. This helps to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and lift and tighten sagging skin.
Benefits of a nonsurgical under-eyelid lift
Some potential benefits of a nonsurgical under-eyelid lift using the Alma Opus device with the Colibri handpiece include:
- Noninvasive: The procedure is noninvasive, which means that there is no surgery, incisions, or downtime required.
- Safe and effective: The Alma Opus device has been shown to be safe and effective for a variety of skin concerns.
- Customizable: The Colibri handpiece is designed to target specific areas of the face, allowing for a customized treatment that can address your individual needs.
- Minimal discomfort: The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and most patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment.
A nonsurgical under-eyelid lift using the Alma Opus device with the Colibri handpiece can be an effective way to improve the appearance of the under-eye area without the need for invasive surgery. It is important to consult with a qualified cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine if this treatment is right for you and to discuss the most appropriate treatment options for your individual needs.
Overall, a nonsurgical eyelid lift using the Opus can be an effective way to improve the appearance of the eyelids without the need for invasive surgery.
What to expect after a nonsurgical eyelid lift
After a nonsurgical eyelid lift using the Opus device, you can expect some mild swelling, redness, and sensitivity in the treated area. These side effects are normal and usually subside within a few days to a week.
It is important to avoid rubbing or touching the treated area, as well as exposure to direct sunlight, for several days after the treatment. You may also be advised to avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, hot tubs, and swimming pools for a few days after the procedure.
You’ll see some immediate improvement in the appearance of the eyelids after the treatment, but the full results may take several weeks to appear as the skin continues to produce new collagen. The duration of the results may vary depending on the individual, but many patients can expect the results to last several months to a year or longer with proper skin care and maintenance.
It is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure the best possible results and minimize any potential side effects. Your practitioner may also schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
