Are There Non Invasive Eyelid Lift Options?
The popularity of eyelid lift procedures are certainly a tribute to their effectiveness. With eyelid surgery, your eyes can appear more vibrant and energetic than you thought possible. Eyelid lifts are able to help you look more youthful and even improve your vision. But not everyone is a good fit for surgery; nor does everyone like the idea of an invasive procedure. So are there non invasive eyelid lift options in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area? Yes!
Dr. Rostami and Dr. Nazemzadeh offer a wide range of non invasive eyelid lift procedures so that nearly every patient has an option that will work for them. This enables even more patients to experience the benefits of eyelid lift procedures. Whether it’s a laser eyelid lift procedure,or an eyelid lift using dermal fillers or neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport, the benefit of these non invasive procedures is that most patients are able to return to normal activities much more rapidly.
In many ways, non invasive eyelid procedures are about delivering eyelid rejuvenation to patients with as little downtime as possible. But they can still be delicate procedures–as with anything involving tissue around the eye will be–so you want to make sure you seek out treatment from highly qualified individuals, such as Dr. Rostami and Dr. Nazemzadeh. Both of our surgeons have a high level of experience and have achieved the highest level of training and credentials in this particular area of the face: your eyes. During your consultation with our surgeons, we’ll discuss the best way to achieve your results.
What Non Invasive Eyelid Lift Options Are Available?
At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center our patients have several non invasive and non surgical eyelid lift options, each designed to treat a specific problem in a specific fashion. Those non invasive options may include the following procedures:
Laser Eyelid Lift Procedures
These procedures use a varied set of laser procedures to generate results for patients. In some cases, surgeons will use Fractionated Skin Resurfacing (made popular by the Fraxel laser system). In other cases, surgeons may use a device that gets results with Broadband Light (or BBL). In either cases, these treatments are designed to mitigate lines and wrinkles around the eye. In some cases, this can also include skin tightening to the surrounding areas, making the eyes appear vibrant and more rested.
In cases where the aging of the eye is caused by a loss of volume or a concentration of wrinkles, injectables can offer excellent and very pleasing results. For example, dark circles beneath the eyes can make you look tired and fatigued, even when you’ve had a good night’s sleep. Often, those dark circles are caused by a lack of volume, and using dermal fillers to restore that volume can make your face look rejuvenated. In other cases, the use of Botox or Dysport has proven to be the most effective way to eliminate wrinkles such as crow’s feet. In other words, with just a few injections, you can be looking more youthful and more energized.
Another option patients have is a procedure called microneedling (often combined with injections of platelet-rich-plasma). This procedure uses a microneedling device to make very small channels in the skin, tricking the skin into activating its rejuvenation powers. Collagen and other healing chemicals are released and your skin’s defense mechanism to the induced micro injuries produces a glowing complexion and revived skin tone and texture. The addition of PRP injections usually serve to amplify this effect. There are also other procedures available to patients looking to eliminate lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

What are the Benefits of Non Invasive Procedures?
In most cases, non surgical or non invasive procedures will not produce the kind of bold results that patients often expect from undergoing surgery. Instead, these procedures focus on giving patients natural-looking and subtle results with minimal to no downtime.. Additionally, not every patient is ready for the “big and bold” approach. Younger patients, especially, are often looking to maintain their already youthful appearance–preventing wrinkles and lines rather than reducing them. This approach has a lot of merit, and younger patients are an ever growing percentage of cosmetic procedure patients, and wrinkle prevention is a big reason.
The benefits of these non invasive procedures are wide ranging. They can include the following:
- Non invasive procedures are usually completed in under 60 minutes, meaning there is little interruption to your daily life
- There is usually only minimal recovery from non-invasive procedures, meaning you can return to normal activities much more quickly
- Non invasive procedures generate subtle, natural-looking results
- Non invasive procedures are usually less expensive than their surgical counterparts
- Discomfort from non invasive procedures is usually quite minimal
- Results from non invasive procedures are sometimes visible immediately (although it may take 2-3 weeks to see final results)
- These procedures are easy to fit in your schedule and results are easy to maintain
