Non-Surgical Eye Lift
Those with bags under their eyes, crow’s feet or wrinkles on their upper eyelids can look tired and years older than they desire. The skin around the eyes is prone to lost elasticity and volume with age, resulting in eye bags, dark circles and other eye-aging traits. While blepharoplasty, or eyelid plastic surgery, can resolve sagging eyelid skin, another option is a non-surgical eye lift. Using facial fillers, cosmetic injections and other treatments, you can recover more youthful eyes. At 4Beauty Aesthetic Institute for Plastic Surgery in Miami, Dr. Mendieta and our cosmetic team offer advanced treatments to rejuvenate the eyes without surgery.
Am I a Candidate for a Non-Surgical Eye Lift?
When the skin around the eyes begins to show fine lines and wrinkles, there are treatments to minimize their appearance. Even those with eye bags, dark circles and tear troughs can benefit from non-surgical eyelift treatments. If you have the beginning signs of aging skin or lost volume around the eyes, non-surgical treatments can rejuvenate the eyes. However, non-surgical cosmetic treatment cannot remove excess skin – skin may be tightened with cosmetic treatments or filler can plump underneath it. Those with excessive loose or sagging skin on the upper or lower eyelids are better candidates for eyelid lift surgery, or blepharoplasty.
How Is a Non-Surgical Eyelift Performed?
Dr. Mendieta customizes each patient’s non-surgical cosmetic treatments, including non-surgical eyelift procedures. Every patient may have different areas they need addressed, from fine lines around their eyes and crow’s feet to dark circles, tear troughs and eye bags. Some of the cosmetic treatments that may be combined to tighten the eyelid skin and smooth away dark circles, eye bags and wrinkles include:
- Laser skin treatments
- Facial fillers
- Botox® injections
- Skin tightening treatments
Combining volume under the skin with cosmetic treatments to improve the elasticity of the skin or relax dynamic lines can make your eyes look years younger. Many non-surgical treatments can improve the appearance of the eyes in one visit. Facial fillers can achieve immediate results to diminish tear troughs, dark circles or bags under the eyes. Dr. Mendieta can recommend the right combination of treatments to refresh your eyes and make you appear more energetic and youthful.
Is There Downtime After a Non-Surgical Eyelift?
The best part of a non-surgical eyelift procedure is that you do not need to schedule time for recovery. Cosmetic injections and most treatments to rejuvenate the eyes do not require downtime. Depending on the treatments performed, most non-surgical eyelift procedures can be completed in about an hour, and you can return to your regular activities. Some treatments may have mild side effects, such as temporary swelling or bruising from injections, but most dissipate quickly.
Non-Surgical Eyelift FAQs
How much does a non-surgical eyelift cost?
Every patient may receive different treatments for their non-surgical eyelift, so prices will vary per person. You can call our office in Miami to schedule a consultation to discuss a non-surgical eyelift and will receive a personalized treatment recommendation and quote for your procedure.
How long before I see results?
Most dermal fillers have immediate results, but some other treatments used for non-surgical eyelifts may take some time for results to be apparent. Most injections will be noticeable within a week – laser treatments will improve the skin around the eyes over several weeks or longer.
How long will my results last?
Non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate the eyes can last from a few months to over a year, depending on the treatment. Certain treatments may need to be repeated more often to maintain results. Botox for crow’s feet may need to be repeated every 2-3 months, while laser treatments and some facial fillers can be used once a year or less.
