Is there a non surgical procedure to address sagging upper eyelid skin issues?

My skin above my eyelids droop down making my eyelids feel somewhat heavy and look older. Is there a non surgical procedure to address this issue?

There are many causes of heavy drooping eyelids, from the brows drifting down as we age and loss of elasticity or stretching of the skin or the eyelids. While there are a few non-surgical ways to tighten the skin around the eyes such as microneedling and chemical peels, a newer method that gets great results and has a very high satisfaction rate is the Plasma Pen or Fibroblasting.

Plasma Pen Fibroblasting is increasing in popularity because it is a highly effective non-surgical procedure to lift and tighten upper eyelids. If your upper eyes lid skin is too lax, then surgery may be the only option to get your desired result to dramatically reduce upper lid eye hooding. A medical skin care specialist certified in how to use the plasma pen can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for a fibroblasting or plasma pen treatment. With one or two plasma fibroblasting treatments, patients begin to see an improvement in the appearance of their upper lid hooding after 8-12 weeks.

Plasma Pen Fibroblasting is typically performed in a medical practice. The procedure takes 1-2 hours with topical numbing and will produce tiny small micro-injuries in the treated area for 5-7 days. Once the small scabs fall off, new pink skin growth will appear. At this point, coverup make-up can be used. Patients can expect little to no pain post procedure along with swelling and puffiness on the upper lids for the first 24-48 hours max. Plasma Fibroblasting can yield impressive results for the right patient wanting to pursue non-surgical skin tightening to smooth texture by stimulating new healthy collagen.

It is possible that the drooping you are seeing is because of brow descent allowing heavy tissue from the brow to affect the upper lids.  If this is the case there are non-surgical therapies to lift the brow which may help you.
