Cosmetic surgery procedures are constantly evolving, this is thanks to the new technology and methods that are available to the average person. “Non-surgical producers” are taking the cosmetic surgery world by storm and gives anyone the chance to effectively reduce the effects of ageing. Here is everything you need to know about a non-surgical eye lift.
What is a Non-Surgical Eye Lift?
A non-surgical eye lift is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of the eyes by making them appear to be lifted. What makes this type of treatment so good is that there is no surgery involved.
Most commonly dermal fillers and botulinum toxin (Botox) injections are used in the desired areas to restore volume around the eye and eyebrow. This helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps “lift” the eyebrow by relaxing the forehead muscles.
How Does It Work?
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which binds to the water in your skin. This makes it appear plumper. This type of filler is commonly used to “fill in” hollow below eye bags or pronounced tear troughs. This makes them look significantly better.
Dermal fillers can last anywhere between 6-18 months.
The Botox injections involved in this treatment can work in conjunction with the dermal fillers. Whilst the fillers “fill in” the problem area. Botox helps smooth out the skin and blocks the signal to the muscle that has caused the drooping in the first place. This can make the eyes appear more open and wake.
Botulinum injection generally lasts between 3-4 months.
