Droopy/Loose Eyelids

One of the noticeable signs of aging is loosening skin, as the skin around the eyes is thinner than the rest of the face, which makes it shows loose skin on the face at the very beginning of the aging stage. Together with smoothing wrinkles, tightening loose skin are must-have items in the eye anti-aging treatment bracket for many clients. Thanks to their effectivity and specificity, aesthetic treatments are popular to tighten loose skin.

What is droopy/loose eyelids

Drooping eyelids happen when our skin is going through an aging process. As we age, our skin loses its collagen and tissue, which leads to the loss of skin elasticity and volume support.

Causes

○ Inherited or congenital causes of droopy eyelids

○ Drooping upper eyelids

Drooping upper eyelids can happen when the muscle that lifts the eyelid becomes weakened or loses strength. Opening eyes is getting more difficult. Also, the eyelids will cover the pupil even when you open your eyes. The sagging double eyelids hang downwards more than usual and are more visible.

○ Age-related skin drooping

As we grow older, the loss of water and collagen in the skin lead to the skin loosening on the upper eyelids and the border of the upper eyelids falling to a lower position than normal. The lower border of the eyelids will narrow the eyes and turn the eyes into triangular shape.

○ Over deposit of fat in the upper eyelids

The excess amount of fat in the upper eyelids can droop the border of the upper eyelids causing tired sensation and weigh down on the eyelashes causing the push down of leashes.

○ Overly rubbing eyes or prolonged usage of eyelid tape

Apart from the natural aging process, repeated usage of and tearing off eyelid tape, and rubbing eyes over time will damage the elastin fibres at the dermis, causing the sagging of eyelids.

○ Poor sleeping habit

Our face does not lie about our sleeping quality. Usually after a late night, dark circles and eye bags come out straight away trying to warn us that our skin and body are not in a balanced state. If the poor sleeping habit continues, and over time, our delicate skin around the eyes will start to show wrinkles and loose skin.

Symptoms

Drooping and sagging upper eyelids with wrinkles; Triple or more eyelids; Triangular eyes; Excessive sunken eye; Eyes with tired sensation.

Affected groups

Drooping and sagging upper eyelids with wrinkles; Triple or more eyelids; Triangular eyes; Excessive sunken eye; Eyes with tired sensation.

Treatment

A. THERMAGE Eye Treatment

What is THERMAGE:

THERMAGE uses radiofrequency technology to heat the dermis. The heat energy will damage the localised dermis and hence stimulate the skin self-healing process. The healing process promotes the formation and remodeling of collagens which will tighten, smoothen and lift the skin, resulting in re-contouring and slowing down the aging process. THERMAGE is the only device approved by FDA and CFDA for the treatment of tightening and smoothing eyelids, an eye specialised treatment device to slow down aging and restore youthful eyes.

How does THERMAGE work:

Thermage is a radiofrequency treatment. The patented applicator will contact your skin and deliver the accurately set radiofrequency to the dermis and heat it up to 65℃ – 75℃. The high temperature will stimulate the self-healing mechanism. A large amount of collagen in the dermis will be regenerated, resulting in an instant firming effect and reduction of the appearance of wrinkles.

Procedure:

1、Face-to-face consultation: Confirmation of a detailed plan of THERMAGE after fully understanding the client’s conditions and desired results.

2、Pre-treatment preparation: Clean and disinfect the treatment areas. Draw treatment areas on the face. Confirm the package of the new tip of the applicator has not been opened.

3、During treatment:Proceed the treatment based on the assigned treatment areas to remove wrinkles and tighten skin.

4、Post-treatment repair: QDEL Phototherapy mask to nourish and repair the skin.

5、Post-treatment caring.

B. Eye Thread Lift

What is thread lift:

Thread lift is currently the most effective face lifting technique. By embedding threads (that can be absorbed and degraded in the body) to the dermis, which lifts the face according to the direction and interval of the threads, it stimulates the skin, and further activates fibroblasts to produce collagen. Thread lift is suitable for people who want to restore skin’s lifting ability, reduce signs of sagging, and stimulate proliferation of collagen. Thread lift treatment around the eye will be performed by eye-specific threads.

How does it work:

Unlike the rest of the face, the skin around eyes does not have any underlying fat content, it only has muscles underneath the skin. Therefore, the threads used for eye treatment are smooth instead of jagged. The threads will be embedded to the swallow muscle layer by the practitioner according to the client’s condition and desired results.

Procedure:

1. Face-to-face consultation: Develop a unique treatment plan based on the client’s condition and desired results.

2. Apply anesthetic: Apply anesthetic externally. Clean and disinfect the areas to be embedded with threads.

3. Pre-treatment: Fully understand the treatment plan. Check the quality and quantity of the threads.

4. During treatment: Proceed with the treatment plan to embed threads.

5. Post-treatment precautions.

Duration: 30-45 mins

C.  Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling-Eyes

What is Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling:

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an innovative technology integrating matrix application, microneedling, and radio frequency technology. During the treatment, a device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the skin. The RF energy is then delivered via the small needles into the dermis to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Treatment at the eye area can help improve skin texture and firmness, as well as remove wrinkles.

How does it work:

A sterile treatment tip with a matrix of non-insulated, 24k gold-plated microneedles is used to mechanically and biologically stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. Also, the thermal stimulation to the dermis from the RF energy further enhances the production of new collagen and elastin. RF microneedling is an advanced technology of microneedling providing accumulative and ongoing benefits of skin tightening, collagen stimulation, crow’s feet smoothing and lines elimination.

Procedure:

1. VISIA examination: Access skin condition or existing skin problems with assistance of scientific tools.
