Drooping Eyelids & Brows

The appearance of the eye area can change over time as the ageing process, sun exposure and genetics take charge. This can cause a youthful and alert look to become sad and tired.
Eyelid ptosis refers to a drooping eyelid. This condition can be caused by excess skin and the weight of which leads to sagging, or when the eyebrow and forehead descend and push the eyelid down. Drooping eyelids and brows are often an aesthetic concern that develops as a person ages. However, if the skin on the eyelid falls too far over the eyelid margin it can impact on a person’s vision.

Drooping eyelids and brows can happen to one or both eyes. It is considered to be a fallen, or ptotic, eyelid when the lower edge starts to cover the coloured part of the eye. This concern is a common result of weakening of the levator muscles - the muscles that open the eye. A progression of drooping eyelids can lead to the person finding it hard to keep the eyes fully open and see above themselves, causing headaches from the strain this puts on the forehead. As the eyebrows are the most expressive feature of the face, they are used excessively throughout a person’s life. Getting older leads to a weakening of the forehead muscles. The tail end of the brow may then taper towards the eye area, causing it to look fallen, as well as pushing on the eyelid. Heavy or fallen eyelids or brows can cause a person to appear sad and tired, even though they may be bright, happy and energetic.

The Light Touch Clinic can perform a variety of treatments that aim to open up the eye area and restore a calm and relaxed look, including: INTRAcel eye and Exilis eye. Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used to relieve tightened muscles in the upper face, for a smoother look to wrinkled skin. These procedures are safe, effective alternatives to more invasive surgical methods that can improve skin quality and structure, safely and with a more rapid recovery, so you can look as happy and alert as you feel.
