What is the Incision Like for an Eyelid Lift?

What is the Incision Like for an Eyelid Lift?

Do you have hooding on the upper eyelids or bags below the eyes that are making you look older than you feel? You may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift is a simple procedure that can refresh your appearance, and help turn back the clock. But you may be a little apprehensive about the incisions for surgery, so you’re anxious to find out what the incision for an eyelid lift is like.

Eyelid Lift
An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty rejuvenates the eyelids by treating droopy upper eyelids, and undereye bags. An upper eyelid lift is the ideal fix for hooding or excess, sagging skin on the lids. It removes the extra skin and fat, and provides a subtle lift to the brows. A lower eyelid lift resolves bags and excess fat below the eyes, as well as dark circles.

An eyelid lift may be done on the upper or lower eyelids, or on both, it all depends on the specific concerns of the patient.

What is the incision like for an eyelid lift?
The incision for an upper eyelid lift is typically made in the natural crease of the upper eyelids, so scars are not visible after surgery. There are different approaches to lower eyelid surgery, and this will influence the placement of the incision. However the incision is generally placed either on the inside of the lid, or just below the lash line. These scars also heal well and are virtually indiscernible.

What Are The Benefits of DualSculpting?

What Are The Benefits of DualSculpting?

CoolSculpting has become the cool way to fight fat, because it is a quick, efficient treatment. It is the ideal option for those looking for an effective, non-invasive solution for stubborn fat. But DualSculpting, using two CoolSculpting machines, is also growing in popularity, but what are the benefits of DualSculpting.

CoolSculpting and DualSculpting
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction technology that uses controlled cooling to get rid of unwanted fat cells. The fat freezing procedure takes 30-45 minutes, and there is no downtime, so patients can resume normal activities right away. CoolSculpting gets rid of 20-25% of fat cells in a treated area.

With DualSculpting you get the same great results but in half the time, because two CoolSculpting machines work simultaneously to treat separate areas.

Benefits of DualSculpting
The CoolSculpting handpiece is designed to address one treatment area. Therefore patients wanting to treat their ‘love handles’ would have to make 2 appointments to treat both sides. With DualSculpting, both sides can be treated in the same session. Therefore DualSculpting saves time, because it allows you to treat more troublespots at one time.

DualSculpting makes it even easier to do away with unwanted fat, because it decreases treatment time and increases efficiency. Since DualSculpting makes it possible to sculpt two areas like the upper arms or thighs in a single session, the results will be similar and more symmetrical. So you won’t have to treat one side and then wait for the other side to catch up, because they will both be treated at the same time.

Where Can Sculptra Injections Be Used?

Where Can Sculptra Injections Be Used?

Would you like to reduce visible signs of facial aging without surgery? Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that can provide the subtle facial rejuvenation results you desire, and leave your skin looking firm and youthful. But where can Sculptra injections be used.

Sculptra Aesthetic
Sculptra Aesthetic contains tiny particles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a biodegradable polymer that has been used for decades to make absorbable stitches.

Sculptra is naturally absorbed by the body over time, and helps increase the production of collagen, which is a protein provides structural support to the skin. The additional collagen augments facial volume and makes wrinkles and folds appear fuller over time. The decline in collagen is a primary contributor to the formation of facial lines and wrinkles.

Where can Sculptra injections be used?
Sculptra is designed for use on deep facial wrinkles and folds that are often harder to fill with other cosmetic fillers. It is especially effective for nasolabial folds, which are the lines that run down from the nose to the mouth, as well as marionette lines, which are the lines that frame the mouth. Sculptra can also be used to soften the appearance of chin lines.

Sculptra will gradually smooth and soften facial wrinkles and folds as collagen levels increase. The wrinkle-softening effects of Sculptra can last up to 2 years.

In order to ensure safety and achieve the desired results, Sculptra must be administered by a physician that has undergone official training for Sculptra Aesthetic.
