Extra skin on the upper eyelids can create a drooping effect that makes you appear tired or aged beyond your years.
While eyelid surgery is a viable option to reverse the look of droopy eyelids, not everyone wants or needs to go under the knife to achieve more youthful eye contours.
What are the 3 Effective Alternatives to Eye-Lid Surgery?
Fortunately, there are now several non-invasive alternatives to traditional eyelid surgery.
But there’s more… We are in the era of Specialised Eye Treatments.
- Ultraformer 3 HIFU has a 2.0mm Specialised Eye treatment handpiece for superior eye lift results.
- Similarly, EndyMed RF has an iFine ultra-slim treatment handpiece that gives eye lift results unlike no other RF treatment.
Learn more about how these treatments work.
1. Eyes by Ultraformer 3 HIFU
Ultraformer 3 is a non-surgical face lifting treatment that uses focused ultrasound technology to stimulate the collagen which counteracts the effects of gravity on the skin.
Ultraformer 3 stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
It is also approved to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.
Numbing cream will also be provided before the treatment to make sure the procedure is more comfortable.
There is no downtime after the procedure so you can return to your normal activities.
It will take at least 2-3 months to see the effect as it takes time for your body to naturally produce new collagen.
The results are a natural lift of the brows helping you achieve a more youthful look.
2. EndyMed iFine
EndyMed is an FDA-cleared face and body radiofrequency treatment to tighten sagging skin resulting in a youthful appearance.
EndyMed iFine is the Specialised Eye treatment that provides non-invasive skin tightening on the eyelids. It works by delivering safe heat energy around the delicate eye area.
The diffuse ultrasound also allows the system to heat the tissue in a therapeutic temperature faster, easier and more effectively in order to stimulate collagen and elastin to tighten and firm the skin.
Most patients find this procedure comfortable and without any downtime.
EndyMed is highly recommended after Ultraformer 3 to prolong the HIFU lifting effect.
3. Botulinum toxin (Botox) Eye-Lift
Botox is a safe, FDA-cleared injectable procedure temporarily blocks the signal from a nerve to a muscle so that wrinkle formed by muscle-contraction relaxes and softens.
Botox treats the muscles which pull the eyelids close and over time, causes it to droop or appear heavy.
When injected correctly, these muscles relax and give a one- to two-millimetre lift.
Botox can also safely reduce wrinkles on the corners of the eyes, lines in between the eyebrows or horizontal lines on the forehead.
When Can I See the Effect of Botox Eye Lift?
After the procedure, the results will take at least 5 to 7 days before you can see the effects of Botox while it takes 2 weeks to see the full expression of the treatment that you get.
It is important to consult an expert aesthetic doctor in Singapore who is highly knowledgeable of the facial anatomy as injecting in the wrong muscle may lead to more drooping of the lids!
