WHAT ARE THE OTHER OPTIONS FOR REVIVING THE EYELIDS?

A pioneer in non-invasive procedures, Dr. Emer may employ an array of nonsurgical treatment options—either in place of or as a complement to surgery—to achieve eyelid rejuvenation: Thermage radiofrequency skin tightening of the eyes, brown and forehead; BOTOX injections to reduce lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet; injectable fillers to lift the brow; and fractional laser treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for overall textural improvement.

If a more aggressive treatment plan is warranted, Renuvion helium plasma resurfacing can produce significant improvements in deep eye wrinkles, sun damage, pores and scars in a single treatment.

WHAT IS EYELID SURGERY?

For some individuals, the effects of aging on the eyelids result in puffy eye bags, loose, excess skin below the eyes, or droopy and hooded upper eyelids. These visible, unattractive, and often bothersome signs of aging can be reversed through blepharoplasty, a surgical eyelid lift procedure involving the removal of excess fat, skin and muscle from the lower and upper eyelids, resulting in a tighter, more rested and ultimately more youthful appearance. For appropriate candidates, Dr. Emer and his Beverly Hills team can make the surgical incision on the inside of the eye to minimize scarring and downtime.
