Can I Achieve an Eyelid Lift Without Surgery?
Although blepharoplasty will provide the most complete, long-lasting results, there are several non-surgical alternatives that can help you achieve an eyelid lift:
Botox is an injectable treatment that uses the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. When it’s injected into the facial skin, it prevents the muscles from contracting, which smooths the skin and reduces wrinkles. When administered around the eyebrows, Botox can provide a slight lift and make the eyelids appear less droopy.
Ultherapy, which is often used as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, is a treatment that uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production. When collagen production is increased around the eyelids and eyebrows, it rejuvenates the skin and gradually provides a slight lift.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that are typically made from hyaluronic acid. These fillers, which come in many varieties, add natural-looking volume and plumpness to the skin. As a result, they eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and provide lift. Dermal fillers can also be used to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
