Ulthera Useful for Droppy Eyelids?
Ultherapy can improve the appearance of eyelids and is FDA approved to do so. Patients often see a subtle- but noticeable brow lift from the Ultherapy procedure with little to no downtime. Ultherapy does not replace an upper blephoraplasty for patients that have a heaver brow.
Ultherapy vs. Blepharoplasty for Droopy Eyelids
Ultherapy will lift and tighten the brow. In so doing, this
treatment will raise the eyebrows and subtly reduce the hooded appearance of droopy
eyelids. However, I strongly agree with my colleagues who have stated that
Ultherapy is not an alternative to Blepharoplasty. Upper eyelid surgery involves an incision in
the natural crease of the eye that allows for the removal of skin and fat. A
very thin stitch is used to close the incision, which will be undetectable
within the existing eyelid crease.
You should also know
that the reason your eyes are aging faster than the rest of your face is
because our eyes are surrounded by the thinnest and most fragile skin on the
face. It is an area that lacks collagen and elastin fibers, so the skin is far
more prone to stretching and sagging. Additionally, the constant contracting of
more than 22 muscles around the eye pulls and strains the skin to produce a
look of premature aging.
In conclusion, consult
with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in Blepharoplasty. You
should respond well to the surgery and be pleased with the final results.
Ulthera Can Be Used for Brow Lifting
Ulthera can be used for brow lifting; it is quite useful for this purpose. The person doing the procedure has to be well versed in Ulthera, the skin and the anatomy to have the best possible outcome — and to this end we recommend a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. This way you'll avoid that "freakish" look you spoke of! :)
Ulthera Can Lift Droopy Eyelids
Yes, Ulthera can be a wonderful choice for those whose heavy lids do not require blepharoplasty. Ulthera can create a nonsurgical brow lift, which will open up the eyes to a degree. Sometimes I combine it with a fully ablative erbium laser to upper eyelid skin to cause further skin contraction of the area and give a more comprehensive result. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out how Ulthera can help you.
Ultherapy can be used for non-surgical brow lift
Ultherapy is FDA approved for non-surgical lifting of the brow, and can be a great way to open up and brighten the eye area. I recommend visiting a board-certified dermatologist for an in-person consultation to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Asymmetry should not be a concern if you have the procedure done by an expert.
Ultherapy for Droopy Eyelids
Hi and thanks for your question. I have seen some nice brow lifting and elevation of excess eyelid skin with Ultherapy. The results are not as predictable as surgery, however. I have not seen asymmetry with Ultherapy to the forehead, so I don't think that you need to worry about this.
Ultherapy and Droopy Eyelids
Ultherapy has been FDA cleared to lift the brows. It is not a replacement for Blepharoplasty, however significant results have been proven to lift and tighten the brow line and define the eye area. Always consult with a Board Certified Physician to choose the best option for your desired results.
Brow lifting with Ultherapy
Your eyelids will open up if you had Ultherapy brow lifting. Alternatively, you can have surgical eyebrow lifting to get a more dramatic lift.
Ultherapy is focused high intensity ultrasound using B mode diagnostic imaging to ensure delivery of the ultrasound energy into the predetermined depths of tissue - skin (1.5 mm and 3 mm) and SMAS layer (4.5 mm).

We have performed Ultherapy since 2011 in hundreds of patients with high satisfaction rates.
Ultherapy can certainly be used to lift and tighten the skin around the eyes for a brow lift. Most patients see immediate results, but improvement can be seen over several months as well.
Ultherapy is FDA approved for a browlift. You can perform an advanced technique by delivering lines/energy just above the bone directly below the brow to give the appearance of an additional lift. However, Ultherapy does not replace an upper blephoraplasty. Ultherapy will give a natural browlift, with no concern of looking "freakish". I often inject Botox the same day as Ultherpay which gives the patient "instant" gratification as Ultherapy takes 3-6 months to see your end result. No one is symmetrical but with Ultherapy you can deliver more energy to an area in hopes of improving the asymmetry.
