How Can Loose Eyelid Skin Be Restored with a Nonsurgical Eyelid Lift?
With age, the collagen that previously kept our skin looking young, firm, and healthy, can start to deteriorate and cause loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. The delicate, thin skin around the eyes is particularly susceptible to the effects of aging, leaving many patients with sagging or drooping eyelids that make them look much older than they actually are. For some men and women, saggy eyelid skin can begin to obstruct their field of vision.
At Clovis Laser Center in Clovis, CA, board-certified physician Dr. Timothy Roth helps patients restore a more youthful look and feel with the nonsurgical eyelid lift using the cutting-edge Opus® Colibri plasma system. Let’s take a closer look at how a nonsurgical eyelid lift works, including what to expect during and after your treatment and what kinds of results may be possible for you.
Are there any alternatives to blepharoplasty?
More commonly known as an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty is an effective way to remove excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. For many patients, however, going under the knife and being out of work during recovery is not an option. As a nonsurgical alternative to an eyelid lift, many of these patients turn to plasma skin tightening with the Opus Colibri system.
What does a nonsurgical eyelid lift do?
With a nonsurgical eyelid lift, patients can restore a more youthful overall appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids, as well as the areas around the eyes, by improving or reversing the following concerns:
- Loose skin around the eyes
- Sagging upper eyelids
- Baggy skin under the eyes
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
How is a nonsurgical eyelid lift performed?
At Clovis Laser Center, patients will relax in one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms. The skin will be cleansed and prepared for treatment with the application of a topical numbing agent. Once the patient is comfortable, the Opus Colibri handpiece will be passed over the target treatment areas to deliver radiofrequency plasma energy. This process stimulates the natural production of collagen beneath the skin’s surface, which works to tighten and rejuvenate the eyelids over time.
How many nonsurgical eye lift treatments will I need?
Depending on the severity of your concerns, desired outcome, and other factors, you should expect to undergo a series of about 2 – 5 plasma skin tightening treatments for your eyelids, though most patients see at least some noticeable improvements after a single session.
Am I a candidate for a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
Patients considering nonsurgical eyelid lifting should be in good health and have mild to moderate signs of aging on the eyelids and around the eyes. Patients with severe eyelid sagging, prominent bags under the eyes, and other more advanced signs of aging may be better suited to a surgical eyelid lift. Following eyelid lift surgery, however, these patients may consider plasma skin tightening as a maintenance treatment to keep their skin looking its best for as long as possible. During your initial consultation for a nonsurgical eyelid lift in Clovis, CA, our knowledgeable team will help determine if you may be a good candidate for treatment.
