Non Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation

By January 30, 2013 No Comments

Non Surgical Blepharoplasty

Do you always look tired?  Are people asking you if you are not getting enough sleep but you just slept 10 hours?  Do you have dark circles, puffiness, or bags under your eyes all the time?  Are you tired of using eye creams and concealers to just temporarily give the appearance that you slept last night?  If so, we might have the solution for you without incisions and downtime.  A simple 20 minute injectable session with Dr. Layke or Dr. Danielpour might be all that you need for that well rested look and a younger appearance in your  eyes and face..

As plastic surgeons we are trained to “fix” and treat everything with surgery.  However, times are changing and surgeons are taking a less invasive approach.  Less downtime, quick procedures, and immediate gratification for the patient, has led to increased popularity for non-invasive approached to facial rejuvenation.

The are many options for non surgical blepharoplasty through a variety of dermal fillers or lasers.  In this blog we will discuss the use of fillers to achieve a more youthful and well rested look.

It is now possible to correct protruding, or saggy skin around the eyes. And dark circles can now be reliably diminished through the use of these fillers.

How Does Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Work?

If you are considering blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of the skin around your eyes, it is worth understanding how dermal fillers work and why they might be a viable alternative to surgery.

Most of the issues that warrant cosmetic interventions are caused by a depletion of fat under the skin and the thin skin around the eyes.  This can manifest as dark circles or undereye “bags.”

Dermal fillers used in non-surgical blepharoplasty help to make up for the loss of volume in the skin around the eye area.  And they can also help to even out the distribution of fat tissue causing the skin to protrude.  Hyaluronic acids work best for this objective. These include:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane

Hyaluronic Acids For Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty

Hyaluronic acids are ideal for applications in non-surgical blepharoplasty.

The chemical structure of hyaluronic acids allow this compound to absorb water and bind effectively with collagen and elastin in the skin tissue.  As a result, skin becomes hydrated, more firm and with a healthier appearance.

Hyaluronic acids are found naturally in the body.  However, as injections, they are bioengineered instead of being harvested from animal sources. This helps to decrease the risk of possible infections and allergic reactions.

How Long Do Results of Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Last?

When used under the eyes, hyaluronic acids last up to a year. Unlike surgical blepharoplasty, the dermal fillers allow the procedure results to adapt to the natural changes your face will undergo with age.  Eyelid enhancement surgery sometimes results in a tight, pulled look around the eyes, changing their original shape.

At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group every patient is different and is treated on an individualized basis.
