Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a standard procedure meant to help those hoping to improve the appearance of their eyelids. This procedure can be performed on the lower lids, upper lids, or both. While this procedure is common and considered low risk, many patients would rather undergo less invasive options. The Dermatology Clinic in Baton Rouge offers multiple non-surgical alternatives to cosmetic eye surgery.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a procedure meant to repair droopy eyelids. This procedure may involve removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from around a patient’s eyes. As a result of eyelid stretching due to the muscles that support your eyelid weakening as you age, excess fat may begin to gather around your eyelids. This causes droopy upper lids, sagging eyebrows, and bags under your eyes. While this can make you look older, severely sagging skin surrounding your eyes can also reduce your peripheral vision leading to vision problems. Eyelid surgery and other less invasive options can help a great deal with signs of aging around your eyes and ensure that you have use of your whole field of vision.
Morpheus8 Remodeling System
Morpheus8 is an RF fractional solution for full-body subdermal adipose remodeling commonly used for non-invasive eyelid procedures. Learn more about Morpheus8 treatment at The Dermatology Clinic.
Benefits of choosing Morpheus8 remodeling system
The key benefits of Morpheus8 treatment as a non-invasive eyelid treatment include:
-Morpheus8 has two dual handpieces that allow for increased treatment functionality. The smaller handpiece is used for smaller areas, like around the eyes.
-Morpheus8 penetrates subdermal tissue up to 8mm, which is the deepest fractional treatment available.
-Morpheus8 has an easy-to-navigate LCD treatment screen, allowing for intelligent programming.
This non-invasive procedure deploys bipolar radiofrequency energy to different levels under your skin simultaneously. Because Morpheus8 targets your skin tissue at three different levels, this allows for a reduction in treatment time, minimum skin injury, and ensures uniform treatment. Morpheus8 treatment results are evident immediately after your procedure is finished. In fact, as your eyes continue to heal, your tissue will produce more collagen leading to your results getting even better. The expert team at The Dermatology Clinic will help you decide if Morpheus8 treatment is the proper non-surgical eye treatment for you. Treatment results for Morpheus8 last up to 12 to 18 months. Some side effects may include:
-Small scabs around the treatment area
Botox & Juvederm
Botox & Juvederm are both injectable fillers that are great options for those interested in an eyelid lift without surgery. Learn how this non-surgical eye procedure can help you reduce signs of aging.
Benefits of choosing Botox & Juvederm
The benefits of Botox and Juvederm treatment include:
-Helps produce collagen naturally
-Little to no time is needed for recovery
-Combines well with other treatments
-Almost anyone is a good candidate
Botox is a botulinum toxin treatment that targets and freezes specific facial muscles that cause crow’s feet, facial lines, and wrinkles. Botox injection treatment takes around 10 minutes, and the results can be seen in four to seven days. Botox treatment can last up to four months, and it is recommended to continue with botox injections after your first time so unwanted lines do not return. Juvederm is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring moisturizer in your body. After being injected, Juvederm helps maintain your skin’s moisture while also adding volume to facial lines. Almost anyone is a candidate for Juvederm injections, but the board-certified professionals at The Dermatology Clinic do not recommend this procedure to women who are pregnant or nursing. Before receiving your Juvederm injections, you should also reduce or cease your intake of vitamin E, alcohol, and aspirin. The Juvederm injection process takes no more than 15 minutes, and you can see your results right away. You can expect your results to last from six months to a year and a half.
Microneedling is a good option for those searching for non-surgical eye treatments that can help reduce the signs of aging. Let our experienced dermatologists and aestheticians help you decide if microneedling is right for you.
Benefits of choosing microneedling
Some of the key benefits of microneedling are:
-Fewer side effects than more invasive treatments
-Improves the effectiveness of other skin care products
-Little to no recovery time needed
-Reduces symptoms of common skin diseases
Microneedling uses multiple small needles to make tiny punctures in the skin around your eyes. This causes your body to give a healing response that produces collagen and stimulates circulation. This procedure can be completed at The Dermatology Clinic office. Microneedling procedures usually take around 30 minutes, and most patients will experience slight swelling and redness for a few days afterward. You will notice the results of your microneedling procedure within a week. To maintain the results of your microneedling procedure, you should receive the treatment two to three times a year.
How do I choose between Botox and fillers?
The physicians at The Dermatology Clinic can help you decide which option works best for you, though there are not many noticeable differences between the two. They are both long-lasting treatments meant to help give your eyes a younger appearance. To learn more about which you should choose, schedule an appointment at The Dermatology Clinic.
How long does skin tightening last?
The right treatment could last up to two to three years. But on average, most treatments last around 18 months. For the best results, you should get treatment multiple times a year.
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling procedures are not painful, but they can be uncomfortable. Microneedling may be especially uncomfortable for those who are afraid of needles.
