Non-surgical Eyelid liftBeverly Hills and serving the Los Angeles area
As the art and science of eyelid lift rejuvenation has advanced, there has been a significant improvement in the non-surgical solutions for improving the appearance of the eyes. Over the past decade we have learned that volume loss in and around the eyes contribute a significant amount to the aging process of the area. As a result, Dr. Azizzadeh utilizes non-surgical volume restoration to address these changes in appropriate candidates. The main advance in this area is the use of in-office injectables to improve the hollowness of the lower eyes and the laxity of the upper eyelids.
The three products that are commonly employed by Dr. Azizzadeh in eyelid lift procedures are Restylane, Juvederm and fat. Restylane and Juvederm are hyaluronic products (proteins that are naturally found in the skin). Restylane or Juvederm is generally injected in the tear-trough (hollows) region of the lower eyes and can also be used to reduce the laxity of the upper eyelids by improving the position of the eyebrows. Restylane and Juvederm generally have few side-effects and can last up to 8 months. Botox injections can also be used to reduce the crow’s feet wrinkles in an Eyelid lift procedure further enhancing the overall appearance. Fat transfer (MFG) can achieve similar results as Restylane and Juvederm.
The main difference however is that fat can be a permanent solution for about 90% of individuals. Fat is usually harvested from the abdominal region under local anesthesia and injected in the appropriate regions of the eyes, midface and brows for an eyelid lift. For individuals with significant hollowness and sagging, fat provides a better solution than hyaluronic products.
