Non Surgical Eyelift

Remove Dark Circles Without Surgery

USmakeover Sometimes, life catches up with us. It definitely happens, especially in New York! (They don’t call us the city that never sleeps for no reason.) And when it does, we can start to look worn down and tired. This can lead to dark circles under the eyes. Of course, the best way to eliminate those kinds of dark circles is to get more sleep. However, these dark circles aren’t always caused by a lack of sleep. Sometimes they’re caused by simple physiology. These dark circles are much more difficult to address and in some cases require specialized treatment. That’s where treatment such as non-surgical blepharoplasty can really help a patient look and feel more rested.

The 15-Minute Non-Surgical Eyelift1 involves the placement of small amounts of a filler substance in the lower eyelids skin to rejuvenate the lower eyelids.

Why Do You Get Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

As one ages, the lower eyelids can become hollow. In some people “bags” develop in the lower eyelids which in fact are protruding fat. Hollowness or bags around the eyes can be corrected or camouflaged through the placement of small amounts of a filler substance named Restylane in the lower eyelids. This is a minimal downtime procedure done with numbing cream only and it usually takes less than 15 minutes. The results can last six months to one year.

If you have always wanted to improve the appearance of your lower eyelids, get rid of that tired look, decrease the shadowing effect that gives the appearance that you have dark circles around your eyes or improves the appearance of bags around your eyes, and you don’t want surgery, consider the non-surgical eyelift. Dr. Rokhsar can tell you if you are a good candidate for the non-surgical eyelift or whether traditional blepharoplasty2 would be more suitable for you.

In addition, Dr. Rokhsar can tell you if you can combine the non-surgical eyelift with other laser resurfacing procedures including the CO2 or Fraxel lasers for optimal results.

Non-Surgical Eyelift FAQ

How does it work?

Aging causes the skin to lose its elasticity, making it effective for loose skin to be surgically removed and the hollowness underneath the eyes can be restored using Restylane, a cosmetic dermal filler specifically designed to restore volume and fullness to the face. Dr. Rokhsar may also suggest using the Fraxel laser in order to resurface the eyelids to create a smoother appearance.

Who is a good candidate?

Eyelid rejuvenation treatments are for those who have healthy facial tissue and muscle as well as cosmetic goals advised by Dr. Cameron Rokhsar. After the consultation, he will be able to determine what treatments are best for the condition of your eyelids.

Will laser surgery be painful?

With blepharoplasty surgery, there is certain discomfort, but the anesthesia administered during surgery provides a comfortable eyelid procedure. There is little to no pain after the surgery, but the laser treatment provides the patient with minimal discomfort, bruising, and a shorter recovery time. But otherwise, the non-surgical route gives the patients the luxury of walking out of the office to resume normal activity right afterward.

How long does the procedure take?

Using a small amount of filler substance to fill in the hollowness around the eye will take about 15-minutes. This is a procedure that requires virtually no downtime and can be easily done during a work lunch break depending on an individual’s cosmetic goals.

What are post-treatment instructions?

With Restylane injections alone, the patient can resume normal activity immediately. There may be injection site soreness but can be alleviated with Tylenol or cold compress. With surgery, patients will experience some downtime. Fraxel treatments require little to no downtime but in all cases, sun protection and sunglass-wearing should be practiced.

How long do results last?

Depending on which treatment route the patient chose, results can last a few months to a year. With Restylane injections alone, results can last approximately 3 to 6 months.

Risks of Non-Surgical Eye Lifts

While invasive surgeries have a higher risk than non-surgical eye lifts, there are still some risks involved. These may include swelling, itchiness, redness, nerve injuries, and scarring. Restylane is FDA-approved with a wealth of studies indicating its safety and effectiveness, and Dr. Rokhsar takes precautions with every procedure to minimize any chance of side effects and achieve the best possible results.
