Is there a natural way to achieve an eyelid lift?
An Eyelid lift usually pertains to a surgical eyelid surgery (excision of eyelid skin) or a surgical brow lift where the forehead skin skin is excised and thus lifted.
At our clinic we use several non-surgical methods to tighten the eyelid and to elevate the brow to reduce excess skin.
First Botox in the forehead can elevate the outside brow to pull up the eyelid and brow - this is easy and usually its the first treatment to try. Next Volume, such as filler or your own fat, can be used to revolumize the forehead and brow - giving alittle lift and tightening.
Next thread lifting can create an impressive lift of the eyebrow/upper eyelid, but only has a duration of 9-12 months. It is minimally invasive and has only swelling and possible bruising for 3 days.
For eyelid laxity of lower or upper eyelids, we use laser resurfacing with the Erbium laser or recently we have been using the J-plasma to obtain impressive tightening of the lower and upper eyelid skin. This has downtime of 8 days.
So, overall there are many non-surgical options that can match your desired results and downtime.
