Non Surgical Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) in NYC
Many individuals are not satisfied with the appearance of their eyelids. Misshaped eyelids can distort the appearance of one’s eyes, and can even make it difficult to see. Sometimes the eyelid skin can sag or is loose to the point of creating cosmetically unappealing folds. Saggy lower eyelids can give the appearance of bags under the eyes or dark circles, making one appear tired and stressed.
A saggy lower eyelid can also make the eye appear unnaturally long, thereby distorting the shape of the face or exposing the white below the iris. Fat deposition can occur in odd areas, including the eyelid. Excess fat in the eyelids can make the eyes appear puffier than normal. Often, the eyes are the first feature someone notices on the face, so aesthetically unappealing eyelids can be extremely frustrating. While surgery is a possibility for correcting eyelids, it is expensive, involves a lengthy recovery time and satisfactory results are not always guaranteed. Rejuve NYC Clinic offers an effective and popular nonsurgical option for loose, droopy or misshaped eyelids.
What is a nonsurgical blepharoplasty?
A nonsurgical blepharoplasty is a noninvasive, safe and effective way to correct misshaped, droopy or cosmetically unappealing eyelids. This procedure can be used on both upper and lower eyelids and can significantly change the shape and contour of your eyes, giving you a much younger, more attractive and healthier look. Rejuve Clinic’s board-certified medical staff will advise you on which nonsurgical approach to take for improving eyelid appearance. While lasers can be used, the most common treatments include youthful injections, such as Botox and dermal fillers.
Botox is short for Botulinum toxin (onabotulinumtoxinA). A medical professional will precisely inject the Botox in muscle points surrounding the eyelid(s) that will limit their movement, raise them, and make them appear less droopy. When done correctly, Botox does not paralyze facial muscles. Instead, the injectable amount utilized is enough to limit muscle contractions and movement, but not completely paralyze them. Botox injections for eyelids will help normalize their shape, elevate them and help prevent the dreaded hollowed look underneath the eyes. The improvements are most noticeable between two to eight weeks after the procedure.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are used to smooth out the area around the eyes resulting in a fuller and rejuvenated look. Many people opt for Hyaluronic Acid fillers because of the ability to reverse the procedure — if left unsatisfied with the results, the process can be entirely undone. The results from Juvederm injections are noticed immediately and tend to last one year. Then, they will need to be repeated.
Radiesse is another dermal filler. Consisting of Calcium Hyadroxlapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel by a board certified physician, the enhanced results are immediatelly noticeable. Fine lines and wrinkles will be immediately diminished while an improvement in volume and appearance is seen. As Radiesse works, it continues to improve the skin’s appearance by naturally stimulating the production of collagen, a key protein in the skin’s inner layer. We we age, collagen decreases in amount, but modern day cosmetic treatments boost its production and provides a second chance at healthier, younger-looking skin.
As Radiesse is naturally absorbed by the body, it is a temporary fix and the procedure will need to be repeated a year after the first. When performed by a skilled medical professional, Radiesse will not slip from its original positioning under the skin.
What to Expect:
At Rejuve Clinic, we begin every treatment with a consultation where we get to know you and your cosmetic expectations. We take a complete medical history which assists in determining the best treatment option. We will ask about any medical illnesses, previous skin treatments, medications, vitamins and allergies.
A physical examination of the area to be treated will be conducted next by a board certified doctor. Crucial for making sure a proper diagnosis is made, an exam also helps the medical staff to understand the cosmetic condition. With the diagnosis in hand, the treatment team will make a recommendation. During this consultation, you are encouraged to ask any questions you may have and express your concerns.
Our primary goal is a satisfying outcome.
At the beginning of your treatment, Lidocaine, a numbing agent, is applied to the area to be treated. After approximately 309 minutes, you will feel little to no pain and a medical professional will inject one of the fillers into the designated skin area. The injections typically take from 15 to 30 minutes.
Following the treatment, you may experience minor swelling or bruising, but it usually won’t be enough to interfere with the remainder of your day. Most people easily return to their regularly scheduled daily routines.
What are the Risks?
There is a risk of infection at the injection site as there is with any injection. Bruising, swelling and slight bleeding are possible side effects, but most of the time treatment is without complications. Contact our clinic immediately should any of these side effects appear.
