Sagging, drooping eyelids are an all too common effect of aging, as the skin loses its elasticity and structure with the passing years. Unfortunately, the effects of aging around the eyes are noticeable, leaving the person looking years or even decades older. As the common saying goes, the eyes are the window to the soul. Subtle cues surrounding the eyes tell us whether a smile is genuine, determine whether we perceive someone as being trustworthy, and give clues to one's emotional state. When aging sets in and impacts the appearance of the eyes, the result can be that we look constantly tired, sad, or upset, and others may incorrectly interpret our facial expressions.

The Effects of Aging on the Eyelids

As we age, the skin of our faces naturally begins to lose collagen and decrease in volume. Around the eyes, this is particularly noticeable, as repetitive facial expressions cause wrinkles such as crow's feet, and gravity pulls on the delicate skin of the eyelids, tugging them out of shape, creating a droopy, saggy look. This can result in eyelids that are noticeably wrinkled, bags under the eyes giving a tired appearance, and sagging upper lids that make the eyes appear smaller and, in extreme cases, even interfering with vision. These effects don't just make you appear older and weary; the eyelids function best when they are smooth and tight. Many patients undergo blepharoplasty, a surgery that tightens the skin of the eyelids and removes excess skin and fat, but there are also less invasive, nonsurgical options that produce remarkable results.

Ultherapy

A non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that utilizes heat to stimulate collagen production, Ultherapy uses ultrasound rather than radiofrequency waves to reach the desired therapeutic temperatures. Ultrasound has been used for a variety of applications in the medical field for years, due to its unique ability to penetrate specific depths of tissue. Now that ability has been harnessed to stimulate collagen growth and skin renewal at three different levels of the skin.

Ultherapy is a great overall skin tightening treatment. However, it is not possible to directly treat sagging eyelid skin. Thermage eyelid treatment provides a complement nonsurgical skin tightening to the delicate eyelids. Therefore the two treatments are a great combination.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this. Please note the following in regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.
