Non-surgical Eyelid Lift
As we age, we are faced with the loss and reduced synthesis of collagen and elastin, which are the tissue’s main structural proteins, as well as the loss of hyaluronic acid from the extracellular space. Hyaluronic acid is needed to maintain hydration and the volume of the tissue.
As a result, the skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, dehydrated, prone to trauma, and poorly nourished.
The first visible signs of facial aging appear in the area around the eyes due to the specific anatomical features of that area – thin skin of the eyelids and periocular area, the visible loss of supporting tissue, and increased vascular drawing in the lower eyelid area, which is manifested as the appearance of dark circles around the eyes.
Age-related changes occurring in the periocular area
The periocular area is characterized by the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles that occur due to the loss of supporting tissue and, consequently, increased vascular drawing in the lower eyelid area, as well as a drooping upper eyelid followed by the loss of facial volume.
The main purpose of eyelids is to cover and protect the eye socket and the eye. A drooping upper eyelid is a natural occurrence in the aging process and causes patients to look sad, tired, and older than their actual age.
Non-surgical eyelid lift
A non-surgical eyelid lift is a revolutionary anti-aging method and the newest approach to addressing the issue of drooping eyelids. Thanks to the advantages it offers – non-invasive and painless treatment, with no downtime – it has replaced the surgical procedure (blepharoplasty) and enabled a comfortable and risk-free eyelid lift procedure that rejuvenates the periocular area.
This non-invasive method includes the application of RF energy of the Alma lasers platform, which uses a special periocular extension designed to treat the area around the eyes. The method aims to tighten the supraorbital, or the upper orbital region, and to lift the upper eyelid. The procedure is completely painless and comfortable for the patient.
Radio wave lifting is a rejuvenating technique that enhances the collagen production and tightening of the area, which leads to a more youthful and glowing appearance.
The advantages of RF lifting method
- No scarring
- No downtime
- Natural-looking results
- No anesthesia
After just one non-surgical eyelid lift treatment, the patient notices that the eyes look bigger, the appearance more youthful, and crow’s feet are reduced.
The technique that applies RF energy to lift the upper third of the face and eyelids can be successfully combined with other anti-aging modalities, such as PR lifting, botox, and hyaluronic injections used to lift the temporal region.
