As you age, you may discover that your skin is not as tight and firm as it was when you were twenty something. There are wrinkles on your forehead and fine lines around your mouth. You can tolerate those, because they show the laughter and happiness in your life. But what do those droopy eyelids show? Nothing, because they’re in the way of your vision!
There are a few reasons your eyelids might sag. They could be loose due to age or a congenital defect. You could have an underlying condition of the thyroid or kidneys that creates a weakness. Fatty deposits around the eyes or skin that has lost its elasticity might even be the culprit.
If the condition is mainly cosmetic and doesn’t affect your vision, there are some non-surgical ways to treat it.
- If you have just started noticing sagging eyelids when you didn’t get enough sleep, try placing cold, wet, black tea bags over your closed eyes. The tanic acid in the tea may shrink the blood vessels, and firm the skin.
- Too much droop for teabags? Make an appointment at the K-Spa for Lumity treatments. The nutritional supplement available at through our spa help restore elasticity to aging skin by waking up the cells’ natural powers of renewal.
- Facial filler injections like Juvederm or Sculptra can fill the sagging lids, creating a temporary, but smooth look for your eyes. The blunt tipped microcannula ensures that there’s no bruising.
