Get an Eyelid Lift with Botox in Virginia

There are many reasons why a patient may opt to avoid surgery when it comes to eyelid lift procedures. For example, the patient may not be a good candidate for surgery; in other cases, the patient may simply have an aversion to therapy or may be unable to take the time off of work necessary to recover from surgery. But that doesn’t mean those patients cannot achieve results that leave them looking rejuvenated and refreshed. Dr. Rostami and Dr. Nazemzadeh offer Botox and Dysport Eyelid Lift procedures at the Sanctuary Cosmetic Center in Washington D.C. as a non-invasive solution for those who want an eyelid lift. Botox and Dsyport, both variations on the same neuromodulator, are used to mitigate wrinkles around the eye and help achieve a lifting effect to the entire eyelid area unattainable with any other form of eyelid rejuvenation, thus ensuring that the face looks more youthful and radiant.

If you’re interested in what a Botox or Dysport injection can do for you, contact the nationally-recognized eyelid lift experts at the Sanctuary Cosmetic Center. Botox and Dysport are an excellent choice for certain wrinkles, but they aren’t the right choice for all wrinkles around the eye, so we will be able to tell you what will work and what won’t (and provide alternatives in those cases). If you want to know more about Botox and Dysport, contact us right away to get the process started.

Eliminating Wrinkles Around the Eye with Botox

Botox is rightfully famous for its ability to treat wrinkles. That’s why Botox–and neuromodulators like it, such as Dysport–injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the country. And while it might be common knowledge that Botox is used to mitigate wrinkles in the face, many of our patients are surprised to learn that Botox and Dysport can be used to mitigate wrinkles and lines around the eyes. This is particularly true of the lines known as “Crow’s Feet” (which usually extend from the corner of the eyes) and the lines around the brows sometimes called “concentration lines.” While Botox has been used for decades by ophthalmologist to treat eyelid twitching or blepharospasm, its FDA approval for treatment of Crow’s Feet and frown lines is proof of its effectiveness in reducing wrinkles in those areas.

Botox and Dysport work in this way because they are specially designed to treat a particular type of wrinkle that is common around the eye. This wrinkle is the type caused by muscle contraction. Over time, some of your muscles become locked in a contracted position, causing the skin connected to that muscle to fold, causing wrinkles and lines. Botox and Dysport both work to paralyze that muscle, causing it to relax and release the skin; this mitigates the wrinkle. Because Crow’s Feet and concentration lines are both caused by this kind of muscle contraction, Botox and Dsyport are both excellent options to get an eyelid lift treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox and Dysport Eyelid Lift?

Patients who want an eyelid lift procedure usually have several options open to them. Which procedure is best for them will depend largely on their desired final results and the root cause of the wrinkles, lines, or excess tissue they want to eliminate. The best candidates for a Botox/Dysport Eyelid Lift usually present the following characteristics:

  • Lines or wrinkles around the eye
  • Lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contraction (not, for example, loss of volume)
  • Crow’s Feet or concentration lines
  • Aversion to surgery
  • Symptoms that are not best treated surgically
  • Realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
  • Not pregnant or nursing
  • Looking for a quick procedure with almost no downtime
  • Looking for subtle results that improve the entire face

If you think you might be a good candidate for Botox or Dysport eyelid lift procedures, and you’re in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, contact the highly qualified experts at the Sanctuary Cosmetic Center to schedule a confidential consultation.

The Botox/Dysport Eyelid Lift Procedure

The actual Botox/Dysport eyelid lift procedure will usually be accomplished in less than thirty minutes (indeed, many injections take closer to fifteen minutes to perform). This means that you can be in and out over a lunch break (making this exceptionally popular with busy professionals). The patient will sometimes be given a topical numbing agent or (more commonly) an ice pack to help mitigate discomfort and prevent bruising. Dr. Rostami or Dr. Nazemzadeh will then select the proper injection sites in order to get your desired results. The injections themselves will take a matter of minutes to complete.

Once the injections are complete, the patient is allowed to return to normal activities. However, patients may want to avoid vigorous exercise for the next 24 hours in order to prevent the Botox/Dysport from spreading beyond its intended destination. Results will begin to manifest in a few days and reach their peak within three weeks. The results from any Botox or Dysport injection are only temporary, lasting anywhere between three and six months (sometimes longer). But if you like your results, you can come in for regular maintenance injections in order to maintain those results.
