Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift for Droopy Eyelids
Droopy Eyelid also known as Ptosis is a condition where the upper lid of an individual droop. The shape and presence of an eyelid crease enhance the appeal and attractiveness of not only your eyes but also your entire face. Upper eyelids often droop with increasing age. Sometimes, the double eyelid gets smaller and becomes less visible. Droopy upper eyelids decrease the beauty and attractiveness of not only your eyes but your entire face. Droopy eyelids can also make you look tired, sleepy and older than your age.
What Causes Eyelid to Droop?
- Aging – As we age, the muscles around the eye region, notably the muscles that hold up our eyelids weaken or loosen, thus causing the eyelids to droop.
- Trauma – Injury to the eye region could weaken or severe the levator aponeurosis or muscle that lifts the eye resulting in drooping of the upper eyelids
- Prolonged contact lens use – Repeated stretching of the eyelid can cause it to loosen, resulting in a drooping eyelid.
- Congenital causes – At times, Ptosis is already present from birth. This is often due to a structural malformation of the levator muscle at birth.
Previously, the upper eyelids could only be treated by surgery. However with the aid of advancement in technology, there are non-surgical options for patients who do not want to undergo the risk, bruising, stitching and downtime associated with surgery.
