When you’ve developed droopy eyelids that impair your vision, you need the services of a trained physician to provide you with the best treatment for droopy eyelids, also known as blepharoptosis.
Even if droopy eyelids just cause you concern about your appearance, it’s still a good idea to seek the expertise of a doctor who knows how to fix droopy eyelids.
At Esthetica MD, Dr. Dimitry Rabkin offers a solution using the most advanced technologies.
If the border of your upper eyelid begins to appear lower than what’s considered normal, the overall effect is a droopy eyelid. The medical term for it is blepharoptosis or ptosis. It’s possible to be born with this condition or for it to become more advanced as you age. If it bothers you, you can now address it without surgery.
Droopy eyelids don’t always affect your vision or appearance but in extreme cases your droopy eyelids may cover some or all of your pupil. When this happens, it can interfere with your vision. At Esthetica MD in Englewood, NJ, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, Dr. Rabkin has several non-surgical options to address your concerns.
Reasons for Ptosis
Droopy upper eyelids affect different people in different ways. That’s why you need personalized care. Obviously, there can be many causes of having drooping eyelids:
- Your body’s natural aging process
- Excessively rubbing your eyes, common for contact lenses wearers or allergy sufferers
- A previous surgery
How to Fix Droopy Eyelids
In severe cases where the drooping eyelids are so heavy they begin to cover the eyes and obstruct a person’s vision, surgery, like blepharoplasty may be necessary to correct the problem. In moderate cases, Dr. Rabkin at Esthetica MD in Englewood, NJ can help with a highly effective, non-surgical procedure geared towards tightening the upper eyelids.
Utilizing a device that fits a small needle, the device emits a miniscule voltage that mixes with the gasses that your skin emits naturally, resulting in a plasma charge. A small arc of electricity results, which causes your skin to tighten. At the same time, collagen is stimulated to produce a healthy tissue.
If you’re concerned about your droopy eyelids and you don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure, such as blepharoplasty, make an appointment to see Dr. Rabkin at Esthetica MD for a consultation to determine if this procedure is right for you.
