What is a blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty refers to a treatment that changes the shape of the eyelids, or more commonly the appearance of the skin of the eyelids.
Traditionally, this would be done by a surgical procedure to remove excess baggy eyelid skin and tighten the lid structure.
What is non surgical blepharoplasty?
There are many techniques now available to help the appearance of loose eyelid skin, wrinkles and eye bags, which do not necessitate the need for a surgical procedure. One of these, offered by Edenmed Aesthetics, is electrothermal cautery blepharoplasty. This technique uses highly selective pin-point heat energy to cause tiny areas of inflammation on the skin in a dot pattern.
How does Edenmed non surgical blepharoplasty work?
As the tiny dots applied with the treatment applicator heal, it does so in a controlled manner, inducing collagen formation that results in a mesh work of scaffolding to support and tighten the skin.
How long does non surgical blepharoplasty last?
It takes about a month to see the results, which can last for several months afterwards. The skin continues to age and the newly formed collagen will undergo the same aging process and slowly reduce. You may need a repeat treatment every 9 to 12 months.
Can anyone have a non surgical blepharoplasty and are there any risks?
Non surgical blepharoplasty is best used before there is too much loose skin. Prevention is always better than cure. If you’re unsure if it could help you, book in for a consultation.
Because it is non surgical, it generally is considered safer than a traditional surgical method. However, with all treatments there are risks. These include infection, bleeding, bruising, failure of the treatment to achieve its goal, ectropion (out turning eyelid), entropion (inturning eyelid) and lash loss. All of these risks are extremely rare.
