Our eyes can command the most attention when it comes to physical appearances. As one ages, unfortunately, the delicate eye area tends to lose that youthful sparkle. Concerns such as dark circles, crow’s feet, puffy eyes and drooping of the lids become apparent around the age of 30s.
One of the most popular procedures to remedy a tired appearance caused by the above-mentioned problems is eyelid rejuvenation. The traditional method of eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty sprang to fame when it was discovered to reverse the effects of aging in the eyelids. With the advent of laser technology in facial rejuvenation, doctors started using non-invasive methods for such procedure.
Advantages of Non-Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation
There are many advantages of a non-surgical procedure such as laser eyelid rejuvenation. Aside from the not having to go under the knife, people take delight in the following:
- Minimal pain or discomfort – A topical anesthetic is applied on the lids before the session thus, after a few hours, any form of discomfort disappears.
- Less time in the doctor’s clinic – Laser eye lift is done in one session, with the simplest type performed in as little as 20-30 minutes.
- More accurate results – The patient can expect to see no more drooping lids, dark circles or bags under the eyes. More importantly though, there is no change in the shape of the eyelids unlike in the traditional scalpel method.
Costs of Eyelid Rejuvenation
On the average, clinics and hospitals around the country offer laser eyelid rejuvenation cost at approximately $4,500. The cheapest reconstructive work done on the lids using laser may cost from $2,000 to $2,500. Prices may go as high as $6,000 for more complex procedures.
