What is non-surgical eyelid surgery?

There are two types of eyelid problems: loose upper and lower eyelid skin, and lower eyelid bags. We use a special device called the AgnesRF to treat eyelid bags if they are present first. This uses radiofrequency heat to melt undereye fat pads. Once the fat pads are treated we then use ablative resurfacing to tighten the eyelid skin with laser technology.

Some patients do not have bags and laser resurfacing is all that is needed.

How do I know what I have?

You will have a consultation where the best treatment for you is created.

How many treatments are required?

If you have eyelid bags usually 2-3 treatments spaced every 8 weeks are needed. If you only have loose skin, one to two treatments spaced every 6 weeks is needed for the best outcome.

Does this replace surgery?

No, it does not replace a traditional blepharoplasty.

Then why do it?

Surgery has risks and not everyone is interested in going under the knife risking the scar, double vision, and potential eye injury. Our laser assisted non-surgical eyelid procedure is SAFE, with less risky, and can be done in the office in under 1 hour.

What is the downtime?

For the eyelids bags, you will have some swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks. Some people have soreness that lasts up to 4 weeks. Taking arnica can help reduce bruising and soreness. If you are only having eyelid skin tightening you will have swelling and redness that is most noticeable for 1-2 days after which redness, peeling, and pink skin are evident.
