Information About Non-Surgical Eye Lift Procedures in New York, NY
What Is a Non-Surgical Eye Lift?
Not all cosmetic eyelid treatments involve surgery. For patients who do not want surgery but wish to correct their puffy, drooping eyelids, there are non-invasive options. Typical non-surgical eyelid lifts use injectable solutions to re-establish youthful proportions and rejuvenate tired-looking eyes. Dr. Jacono usually combines the reshaping properties of Botulinum toxin (Botox) and temporary dermal fillers to achieve desired results.
To better understand how non-surgical eyelifts work, patients first need to comprehend how the eyes change with age. Over time, gravity pulls down on facial tissue, causing the brows to droop over the eyes and the lower eyelids to hollow. These changes may make people look tired, stressed, and even angry.
Dr. Jacono is an expert in non-surgical eyelid lifts and has restored countless patients’ senses of self-confidence.
How Do You Get Rid of Eyelid Creases Without Surgery?
Injectables are effective at non-surgically treating eyelid wrinkles and folds. To lift the upper eyelids, Dr. Jacono injects Botox into the muscles that pull down the eyebrows. This causes the brows to lift, thereby opening the eyelids. Skilled injection specialists like Dr. Jacono can even shape and tilt the outer brows.
Dr. Jacono normally fills sunken under-eye areas with hyaluronic acid, a lubricating compound that naturally occurs in the body. Hyaluronic acid brands Restylane and Belotero are very effective at treating the eyes, as they are gentle and cause less lumpiness. Eyelid skin is very sensitive.
Many patients begin with non-surgical eyelid lifts in their thirties and forties. Around the fifties, eyelid tissue becomes loose enough that injections do not work as well. At this point, patients may undergo a surgical eyelid lift or an endoscopic browlift.
These procedures are quick, simple, and provide dramatic, long-lasting results. During your consultation, Dr. Jacono will evaluate whether you are a better candidate for surgical or non-surgical treatment.
What is the Best Non-Surgical Treatment for Droopy Eyelids?
The most reliable non-surgical treatment for droopy eyelids is a combination of injectables like hyaluronic acid and Botox. These compounds provide consistent, pleasing results. Though injectable treatments are temporary, they are great for short-term relief. They can even shave years off of a patient’s appearance.
Injectable treatments take only a few minutes to perform and require no downtime. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately.
How Long Does Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Last?
The average non-surgical blepharoplasty lasts anywhere between 6 months and 1 year. Botox results sometimes require maintenance twice a year, as do dermal fillers. While treatment is fast, easy, and relatively painless, some patients tire of visiting their doctor’s office so often.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The ideal non-surgical eyelift candidate has good skin elasticity and mild to moderate concerns about their eyes. They should also understand that the procedure may not provide the most dramatic or long-lasting results. However, non-surgical eyelifts considerably refresh the appearance and are wonderful temporary solutions for people who do not want surgery.
Anyone who is considering a non-surgical eyelid procedure must first attend a consultation with Dr. Jacono. During this meeting, he will evaluate your concerns, your skin quality, and your facial features. If you have more advanced signs of aging, Dr. Jacono may recommend surgery.
