And this is our guide to everything you should know about using dermal filler for non-surgical eye lifts.
What is an eye lift?
An eye lift is a procedure or treatment that aims to lift the skin around the eye and restore a more youthful appearance. Most eye lift treatments are surgical, but you can create the effect of an eye lift with other, non-surgical aesthetic procedures, including anti-ageing injections and dermal fillers.
How can dermal filler be used for no-surgical eye lifts?
Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid into the skin. This hyaluronic acid is found throughout the human body, most notably concentrated in the skin. Here it plays an important role in hydrating and nourishing skin cells, maintaining healthy collagen and elastin cells. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin around the eyes, in strategic places, volume can be increased, and the skin can be restructured. This can help to lift the eyes.
The eye ageing process
As part of the natural ageing process, our production of hyaluronic acid does slow down, as well as the collagen and elastin production. This means that skin loses both volume and elasticity, resulting in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, expression lines and sagging skin. Around the eyes, these signs of ageing can combine to make anyone look older than they truly are. And that’s why non-surgical eye lifts are so popular.
What are the advantages of dermal filler for non-surgical eye lifts?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing dermal fillers for your non-surgical eye lifts. These advantages include:
- Subtle, natural results- a qualified, trained aesthetic practitioner can inject very small amounts of dermal filler into some key areas around the eye, including around the temple and the under eye. This can help to restructure the eye area in a subtle way that suits the shape of your face and your bone structure, for natural results that are very complimentary.
- No down time- unlike surgical eye lift options, dermal fillers require no recovery time after the procedure, so you can essentially carry on with your daily routine. In contrast, surgical options can have complicated recovery times and involve staying in hospital overnight or longer.
- Transform sagging skin- as the skin loses volume, the eyelids can begin to sag and droop. This can make you appear sad, tired or angry when you’re not. By using dermal filler to add small amounts of volume to the eyebrow and temple area, in line with your own facial structure, this sagging skin can be transformed and re-positioned.
- Tackle under eye hollows- as well as lifting the eyes and eye lids, dermal fillers are also used effectively to tackle the under eye hollows that may cause dark circles, simply by increasing the volume in small amounts. This can help to rejuvenate your appearance.
