If you want to get a tauter and lifted appearance for your eyelids, but fear of surgical process is stopping you then don’t be scared. You can get tauter, lifted and youthful eyelids without any invasiveness. Previously, the only way you could give your eyes a lift was through a surgical blepharoplasty. A blepharoplasty surgery involves making an incision above the eyelid to remove the excess skin that causes the droopiness of eyelids.
However, there is a non-surgical method to get rid of droopy eyelids too which is known as Ultherapy. Many people are now getting this treatment to avoid surgical ways of lifting eyelids.
What is an Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe, FDA-approved treatment option that does not involve any surgical procedure or invasiveness. The treatment is based on sound energy that is designed to improve the appearance of eyelids by tightening, lifting, and toning the skin of eyelids. Focused sound waves are delivered to the treatment area by an Ulthera system.
These waves can target deep tissues of the skin to restore the youthfulness of eyes completely. A specific device is used to prevent the damage caused by the heat when these waves penetrate deep into the layers of skin. The heat will also stimulate elastin and collagen production that makes the skin firm, tight and elastic.
Your medical aesthetician will monitor the changes in skin layers with the help of ultrasound imaging. Ultherapy can be performed in the brow area, face, and neck.
Results of an Ultherapy
Usually, the results of an Ultherapy treatment become visible right after the treatment but the results will keep on enhancing for more than 3 months. There are no long-term side effects of Ultherapy but you may experience slight itching or mild swelling for a few hours.
The results of Ultherapy can last for more than a year. You will have to undergo follow-up treatments in order to maintain the results.
Blepharoplasty vs. Ultherapy
A surgical blepharoplasty requires administration of anesthesia which is not required in an Ultherapy. The surgical procedure may take longer than 2 or 3 hours. However, an Ultherapy can be completed in 30 to 50 minutes. Ultherapy does not involve any complications and side effects like a blepharoplasty do.
The downtime required by a surgical eyelid lift surgery is quite longer than an Ultherapy. An eyelid surgery possesses a risk of difficulty in closing the eyes while sleeping which can be either temporary or permanent.
The Bottom Line
The world of cosmetic surgery has advanced a lot. For every surgical treatment, there is a non-surgical alternative. The same is the case in the eyelid lift procedure. Where surgical blepharoplasty is producing effective results in lifting droopy eyelids, Ultherapy is also generating the same results without surgery. Therefore, people are now preferring non-surgical eyelid lift treatment.
