Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery that removes excess skin or fat from your upper and lower eyelids. Men and women typically undergo blepharoplasty when they’re unhappy with the sagging skin or puffiness around their eyes that often accompanies age.
While blepharoplasty is usually a surgical procedure, with today’s advances in laser, radiofrequency, and ultrasound technologies, it’s now possible to get nonsurgical blepharoplasty.
Tightening the skin around your eyes doesn’t necessarily mean surgery. Today there are nonsurgical blepharoplasty treatments at Eye Associates of Orange County that are highly effective at tightening your upper and lower eyelids, including:
Lasers, radiofrequency (RF) treatments, and ultrasound therapies all use light, sound, or thermal energy to gently heat the tissue beneath the surface of your skin. This doesn’t harm your skin, but rather promotes healing from within by stimulating collagen and elastin production so your eyes appear firmer and less wrinkled.
Laser, RF, and ultrasound treatments tighten your skin and improve texture, while dermal fillers plump up loose areas and Botox temporarily paralyzes your muscles to smooth out crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes.
If you have mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging skin around your eyes, but you don’t want eyelid surgery, you may be a good candidate for nonsurgical blepharoplasty. Laser treatments not only tighten your skin and smooth wrinkles, but they also help diminish discoloration from sun damage. So, if you have loose skin around your eyes and sun damage, laser resurfacing may be a good nonsurgical alternative to blepharoplasty for you.
Radiofrequency treatments penetrate even deeper than laser energy, so this might be an ideal alternative for men and women who want to see noticeable results after their first treatment. In most cases though, Dr. Krad uses a series of laser or RF treatments deliver optimal results. In either case, you should be in good overall health, free from any eye infections, and realistic in your expectations for the results.
While nonsurgical blepharoplasty is a great way to get firmer, smoother skin around your eyes, the results are not as dramatic as with surgical blepharoplasty. Dr. Krad and the team at Eye Associates of Orange County can help you determine which procedure is best for you based on the results you wish to achieve.
