Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation

by

Tired eyes, hollowed eyes, prominent fat bulges, skin excess....sometimes we can treat these problems without surgery! Yes, we can rejuvenate the periocular area with volume replacement using hyaluronic acid or fat injections. Aging causes facial deflation or loss of fatty tissue around the eyes which contributes tremendously to a tired and aged appearance. 

Hyaluronic acid fillers are recommended as temporary but effective nonsurgical options and can be repeated every year or as needed. Fat is a more permanent solution, but is partially reabsorbed and more than one injection session may be needed. 

Hyaluronic acid injections are done in the office using topical anesthetic. Fat grafting can also be done in the office using local anesthesia for numbing of the fat donor site and injection areas. Fat can be harvested from any fatty deposit in the body. After harvesting, the fat is prepared as micro fat or nonfat and injected in specific areas to enhance the beauty of the eyes – it is the patient’s own natural filler! Expect some swelling and bruising for a few days after any injection of hyaluronic acid fillers or fat. 

A careful evaluation by a surgeon with experience in this area will help you decide which is the best option for you. The goal is to provide beautiful and natural results that fit your needs.
