One of the most common requests we receive is for minimally invasive treatments that can deliver dramatic results, especially when it comes to erasing the visible signs of aging. And although many people are generally familiar with popular options such as Botox® and injectable fillers, far fewer have heard of non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation – but it is a treatment that can make a significant difference for so many people.
At Affiliated Dermatology, our team of licensed healthcare professionals provides non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation in the Phoenix area, offering treatment at our offices across the Valley. If you are searching for an effective approach to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing under-eye bags, and creating a more youthful look, a non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation may be the ideal solution for you.
What is Non-Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation?
Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation also called a non-surgical eyelid lift or non-surgical upper eyelid lift is a procedure that involves a series of highly precise injection techniques that target the eyelids, brows, and related areas.
The treatment uses injectable cosmetic fillers to smooth, contour, and lift the eyelid area, creating an effect similar to a traditional eyelift with no need for surgery.
At Affiliated Dermatology, your eyelid rejuvenation treatment will be tailored based on:
- Your specific concerns and goals
- Your unique facial structure/anatomy
- The shape/contour of your eyelids and brows
One of the distinct characteristics of non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation is that it requires advanced skill and training – in other words, it is a procedure that should only be performed by highly qualified professionals. Because this procedure treats a very sensitive and delicate area of the face and necessitates an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy and injectable fillers, it is important to make sure you are in the best of hands.
What are the Benefits of a Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift?
Essentially, a non-surgical eyelid lift is designed to help prevent and manage the many signs of aging.
As early as our late 20s or early 30s, many of us begin to notice crow’s feet near the eyes, eye bags, a drooping brow, and other unwanted effects of getting older. Over time, it is normal for changes in the eyelid area to create a tired, sometimes sunken appearance. These shifts happen due to a loss of soft tissue volume in the eye socket and brow area, thinning of the eyelid skin, and a reduction of elasticity of the skin. The overall result can cause the eye area to appear darker and more hollow, which only adds to the aging effect of wrinkles and fine lines.
Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation makes it possible to target these concerns with a customized treatment approach.
There are numerous benefits to non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation, one of the biggest being the ability to achieve beautiful results without surgery. The results are quick and remarkably effective, with little to no downtime required.
So, exactly what is non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation good for? It can be a well-suited treatment option for patients that would like to:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and moderate/severe wrinkles in the eye area
- Minimize under-eye bags and/or shadowing
- Create a more elevated brow
- Enhance symmetry of eyelids and/or eyebrows
- Reduce the effects of eyebrow furrowing/frowning
- Tighten and rejuvenate the eyelid skin
- Restore lost volume in the eyelids, brows, temples, and related areas
- Treat sagging, drooping skin
- Achieve a more rested, youthful, and refreshed appearance overall
Can You Combine Eyelid Rejuvenation with Other Procedures?
A non-surgical upper/lower eyelid lift is often performed in combination with other anti-aging, minimally invasive procedures.
Although the results of non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation are impressive all on their own, some of our patients wish to take the benefits one step further with additional cosmetic fillers, skin treatments, or other procedures. Some common treatment combinations that include eyelid rejuvenation are:
- Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation with cheek fillers for a more defined and youthful facial structure
- Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation with lip fillers for facial balance and definition
- Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation and professional skin treatments, such as medical-grade facials, IPL/laser treatments, and microneedling, for enhanced rejuvenation, smoother skin, and a refreshed glow
During your consultation, our Phoenix cosmetic dermatology experts can help you determine which approach best fits your goals. Together, we will devise a personalized treatment plan that will deliver optimal results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Rejuvenation?
Because eyelid rejuvenation is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option, it can be a safe and effective procedure for a diverse range of patients.
Good candidates for eyelid rejuvenation will typically want to address one or more of the following concerns:
- Sagging, “heavy” eyelids
- Bagging or hollowing under the eyes
- A sagging brow or forehead
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- A loss of volume
- A tired, run-down appearance
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for a non-surgical eyelid lift is to request a one-on-one consultation at one of our Phoenix dermatology offices.
FAQs: Non-Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation
What is the process for non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation?
Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation is a relatively quick procedure. For some patients, the treatment is organized into “stages,” allowing for the most effective yet natural results. For others, a single treatment will suffice – it depends on your desired results.
Before your treatment, one of our team members may apply numbing cream to the target areas (some fillers already contain a numbing agent). Then, we will thoroughly cleanse the area to remove any makeup or oil, ensuring a sterile “work area.”
From there, the customized series of injections will be administered. We will continue to check in to make sure you are comfortable throughout the treatment (our patients generally report minimal or no discomfort). Once all injections are complete, you can apply an ice pack to the treated areas while we provide you with post-procedure care instructions.
What is the recovery like after a non-surgical eyelid lift?
Because the procedure is non-surgical, there is very little recovery involved. You may experience some degree of swelling or bruising or slight sensitivity for a short period afterward. Applying ice for the first 24 to 48 hours can help reduce these effects and support healing.
How much does a non-surgical eyelid lift cost?
The cost of non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation varies, mainly because each treatment is customized according to the patient’s needs.
We can discuss cost estimates during your consultation, so you can get a better idea of how much your treatment may cost. If you have a specific budget limit in mind, our team is always happy to help you create a plan to match.
