Nonsurgical Solutions for Saggy Droopy Eyelids

A droopy eyelid is one of the many signs of aging. As we age, the skin on our lids loses some of its elasticity causing it to sag and wrinkle. The muscles of the eyelids also weaken and stretch with age, giving the lids a droopy appearance.

The problem with having droopy eyelids is that it makes us appear tired and even older than our actual age. Nowadays, the saggy skin that gives the eyelids a droopy appearance can be effectively removed without any surgical intervention.

At Cutis Medical Laser Clinics Singapore, we provide safe and FDA-cleared non-surgical skin tightening treatments such as Botox, Ultherapy, and Titan to lift and tighten the skin around eye area.

Botox

An effective anti aging treatment for forehead wrinkles, Botox injections can effectively treat droopy eyelids when injected in the right area and with the right dosage.

Before considering Botox, it is very important to consult a skilled and board certified injector or skin specialist in Singapore in order to avoid disappointing results. When Botox is carefully injected in the muscles that causes the eyelids to droop, it relaxes and their ability to depress the eyes are reduced. The result is a reduction in the severity of the sag and droop.

Botox injections will take at least 10 minutes or more depending on the severity of the area to be treated. It requires no downtime so you can return to your daily routine after your treatment. The desired effects of Botox Singapore are achieved a couple of days post-procedure.

Ultherapy

If you are wary of injections and needles, then you could consider having an ultrasound treatment to lift your droopy eyelids.

A US FDA-approved noninvasive skin tightening treatment, Ultherapy works by utilizing precise ultrasound technology to lift and tone saggy skin around your eyes and other problem areas. The treatment delivers sound waves to the tissue layers beneath the surface of the skin to stimulate new collagen production, providing a lifting and tightening effect to your saggy lids.

Well-known as a non-invasive facelifting procedure, Ultherapy skin tightening treatments require no downtime and produce significant, natural-looking results. Dramatic results are more noticeable in weeks to a few months after your Ultherapy treatment.

Titan

A Titan skin tightening treatment is another option for those who wish to lift droopy and sagging lids without the risks associated with invasive face lifting  procedures. The Cutera Titan enhances the skin tone of your eyelids through the delivery of very safe levels of light energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin.

Your skin doctor Singapore will uniformly apply heat on the treatment area to produce immediate collagen contraction leading to an immediate tightening of your droopy lids.  And throughout the procedure, your skin specialist ensures that the skin’s outermost layers are kept cool, protected, and comfortable using a Titan handpiece that comes with a special cooling feature.

Titan can also be combined with Ultherapy to provide more dramatic collagen-building and improved skin tightening results.
