What is Ptosis or “droopy eyelids”?
Ptosis involves the sagging of one or both of the eyelids. The causes behind this condition typically are due to either skin laxity around the eyes secondary to aging or the weakening of the muscles that control the animation of the lid. Until recently, surgery was the only option to reduce the signs of aging around your eyes. But thanks to advancements in aesthetic medicine, there are now non-surgical options to alleviate the sagging of your lids.
Treatments for droopy lids
Non Surgical Blepharoplasty with CO2 Laser– CO2 Laser is used to resurface and promote collagen production in the skin in order to improve sagging skin, reduce the appearance of dark circles, tighten upper and lower eyelids and reduce wrinkles around the eye.
Upneeq– Upneeq, the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for the temporary treatment of low-lying lids, helps the muscles in the eyes contract, subsequently lifting the eyelids for a more awake appearance. Upneeq works by applying one drop per day in each eye and helps lift your lids for the remainder of the day.
Thermage for Eyes– Thermage can treat eye bags, hooding, rough texture on the eyelids, wrinkles and fine lines and other contributors to tired looking eyes. It has been used as an effective treatment for wrinkled, crepey, sagging or bulging skin.
