The area around the eyes is a key component of facial aesthetics. The upper eyelid can have excess skin and fat whereas the lower eyelid mainly attracts attention because of fat pockets or bags. These bags lend themselves well to surgical eyelift excision. However, there is no nonsurgical treatment that can remove bags of the lower lids.
The upper eyelids can have excess skin and fat as well but skin removal procedure here is very successful in getting a more youthful look of the upper lids.
Eyelift and Fillers
Eyelift may refer to treating excess skin, fat pockets, droopiness of the brow, and wrinkles or the so-called crow’s feet. Also, the angle of the eye can be elevated laterally to achieve the so-called cat eye look. Radiofrequency micro-needling in conjunction with PRF and possibly exosomes can theoretically reduce some of the wrinkling. Botox for the crow’s feet is also very effective. PRF, exosomes, and fillers in the teardrop area are nonsurgical treatments that can also be effective in treating dark circles under the eyes.
Therefore, depending on what the diagnosis is and the desired effect or improvement some nonsurgical eye procedures can be beneficial. But the gold standard for best results is usually excess skin of the upper lids and fat pockets of the lower lids requiring surgery. Also hydrating creams and Retin-A have a place in eyelid aesthetics.
It’s incredible how the anatomy of the area around the eye can enhance our self-concept and give us an exciting outlook on life.
