A non-invasive and quick treatment; it is an eyelid rejuvenation capable of restoring strength and intensity to one’s eyes
For centuries for painters, philosophers, poets and writers, the eyes have always been a great source of inspiration. It is very interesting to see how some scholars have been able to find a correlation between the shape of the eye and the markings on the eyeball, so much so that they have been able to reveal some specific character traits and that is why “the eyes are the mirror of the soul.”
The eyes are often valued as our window to the outside world and at the same time the inner self of the person. The poet Milan Kundera wrote “The eye is the window to the soul, the focus of facial beauty, the place where an individual’s identity is concentrated.”
The painter Amedeo Modigliani in his portraits often painted eyes sometimes empty and without irises, or with one eye closed and one open claiming, “When I know your soul I will paint your eyes” and “with one (eye) you look at the world, with the other you look into yourself.“
The eyes are the first part of the face to reveal our aging.
Already around the age of thirty, small wrinkles develop on the eyelids and creases radiate from the corner of the eye, the famous “crow’s feet.”
The skin around the eyes loses its elasticity as collagen thins and the dermis atrophies, muscles loosen, and excess skin folds develop on the upper eyelids. Excess drooping skin on the eyelids can result in a reduction, even considerable reduction, of the upper visual field, and the patient often tries to counteract this effect by constantly raising the eyebrows, which can lead to chronic migraines.
Any change in the periocular unit leads to facial imbalance and functional disharmony, leading both young and old to seek consultation, thus making blepharoplasty the procedure of choice for both cosmetic and functional improvement.
The word “blepharoplasty” means eyelids and “plastic” means shaping. In general, eyelid blepharoplasty is performed for both cosmetic and functional indications.
Blepharoplasty plays a key role in facial rejuvenation. Evaluation should include a thorough medical history, physical examination, and proper diagnosis.
From the diagnosis, it will be possible to distinguish aging from pseudoptosis (contralateral eyelid retraction, hollow cavity syndrome, brow ptosis) and other mixed forms associated with ptosis (dermatocalasis with altered function of the eyelid elevator muscle).
Before determining her approach and deciding whether the patient’s condition can be treated with nonsurgical noninvasive blepharoplasty, Dr. Ifrach carefully evaluates on a case-by-case basis, all possible contraindications.
Nonsurgical blepharoplasty is performed without cutting and without changing the orbicularis muscle of the eyelids.
The result is a reduction of excess skin on the upper eyelid as well as tightening of excess skin in the outer region around the eye.
The benefits are many including the improvement of expression lines at the corner of the eye and cheekbone, “crow’s feet,” precisely because it stimulates the production of new subcutaneous collagen and consequently gives the skin a more toned and healthy appearance.
Moreover, after this treatment, compared with a traditional surgery, the patient can immediately return to her/his routine.
Non-surgical blepharoplasty helps to avoid all the risks inherent in traditional surgery, side effects are minimal, and there is no need for hospitalization or medication, or going to the outpatient clinic for stitch removal or general anesthesia.
This blepharoplasty technique is called “dynamic” in that it allows the doctor to ask patients to open and close their eyes during treatment. A typical session will last no longer than 30 minutes, and depending on the nature, extent of excess skin, and skin response, the number of sessions and the expected interval of weeks between sessions will vary.
