Eye Rejuvenation

Best Non-Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation NYC | Marmur Medical

Do your aging eyes lead people to assume you are tired, angry, or unapproachable, even when you feel energetic, happy, and friendly? Since we convey so many messages with our eyes, your eyelids could send people the wrong message. Drooping upper eyelid skin can obscure your eyes, giving them a hooded appearance. Undereye bags or dark circles might give you a chronically fatigued appearance. Eventually, moisturizers and specially formulated eye serums will be less sufficient at treating these issues, leaving you searching for alternative solutions. Don’t worry, we have so much to offer!

Renowned New York dermatologist Dr. Ellen Marmur and her highly trained team at Marmur Medical love helping women and men look and feel their best and grow older confidently with procedures like minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation.

“Our patients have been on too many Zoom calls and are more than ready to take control of their appearance. Eyes are their top priority,” says Dr. Marmur

What Is Non-Surgical Eyelid Rejuvenation?

The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else on your face. This skin thins even further due to the collagen loss that accompanies the aging process. Thanks to your eyes’ expressive nature, your eyelids may be one of the first areas to show signs of premature aging, such as drooping and sagging.

Things that make eyes age faster include seasonal allergies, eye rubbing when you feel tired, tugging on the skin with makeup brushes or exfoliants, using harsh makeup removers and wipes, dry eyelids, the use of Latisse and other eyelash enhancers can darken the skin, sun damage, certain medications, and more! 

In performing minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation, Dr. Marmur may use fractional laser skin resurfacing to improve your complexion’s tone and texture and accelerate your skin’s natural healing response. Safe, simple in-office treatments with the Fraxel® laser provide excellent results with minimal recovery time or activity restrictions. At Marmur Medical, we can customize the depth of your Fraxel treatment depending on what you are hoping to address.  

Another choice for non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation is radiofrequency energy with Thermage®. Thermage provides gentle heating to tighten existing collagen and generate new collagen production, making lax skin appear taut and youthful. Thermage eye treatment aims to reduce wrinkles in the upper eyelids and eye bag area and create a more alert, well-rested appearance.

Based on your concerns and the degree of eyelid aging you’re experiencing, Dr. Marmur might also recommend adding a combination of injectable products such as neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) and facial fillers to your minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation. Neuromodulators prevent the muscle contractions that pull your eyebrows down. They can help smooth wrinkles like crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and brow furrows and could give your eyes an elevated arch. When injected into the area below the eyes, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm can minimize the dark undereye circles that can occur due to volume loss, leading to prominent tear troughs.

Advantages of Eyelid Rejuvenation

As a well-known New York City dermatologist with a thriving, well-rounded practice, Dr. Marmur draws on her expertise to create a naturally refreshed appearance. In addition to turning back the clock on your appearance, minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation can also address asymmetries, such as when one eyelid droops more than the other. 

A non-surgical eyelid lift is one of the most promising ways to enhance your appearance without worrying about the various complications associated with having surgery. This treatment will not leave you with any stitches or scars and can give you quick results. Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation and brow lifting can enhance your appearance safely and cost-effectively. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Rejuvenation?

Are you interested in targeting and correcting subtle signs of aging, like crow’s feet? Are noticing a tired, saggy look, facial hollowing, or dark undereye circles? If you are seeking to refresh your appearance, then you may be a good candidate for eye rejuvenation.

Fraxel laser skin resurfacing and Thermage have earned FDA approval and have a long track record of providing satisfying results. However, it’s essential to look for highly trained providers to perform your treatment. People who only have a weekend seminar under their belt lack the necessary credentials and qualifications to prevent complications and provide beautiful, natural-looking results. While getting skin care procedures done at your nearby salon or day spa might seem convenient, it’s always best to seek the expertise of a board-certified dermatologist. During your consultation, Dr. Marmur will recommend the best course of treatment based on your individual needs.

What to Expect After Eyelid Rejuvenation

If you are having non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation performed in anticipation of a highly anticipated event like a reunion or vacation, you should know that timing is essential. Dr. Marmur and her team recommend scheduling your laser treatments in a series that finish at least three weeks ahead of an upcoming event to give your skin ample time to start generating new elastin and collagen and resolve minor side effects such as swelling, redness, and flaking. 

With Thermage or Ulthera, you might see some difference shortly after your first treatment, then a gradual improvement over the next two to six months. Immediately following a Thermage or Ulthera session, your skin will feel somewhat sensitive and swollen, as if you have a mild sunburn. These side effects should go away on their own after a few days.

After you get either eyelid rejuvenation procedure, post-procedure care is crucial. These treatments can make your skin more sensitive to damaging UV rays, so you’ll need to be careful to avoid sun exposure and always apply sunblock before going outside. You’ll also want to keep the treated area moisturized with a topical  serum like MMSkincare Revive and Repose which are made for healing. For a thicker ointment like petroleum jelly, you can reapply several times a day to reduce skin irritation and promote healing.

Depending on your goals, you may wish to schedule a series of Fraxel or Thermage sessions spaced several months apart.

We will make a master plan for you during your consultation to make it very simple. 

After meeting with you and asking you questions about your goals, our experts will create a tailored treatment plan for you. At Marmur Medical, our approach is highly personal and patient-centric.

For most patients, most laser and tightening treatments do hurt a bit. The good news is we’ve prioritized comfort for you and have many options. If you wish, we can apply a topical numbing cream before administering the laser treatments.  Or for all treatments including lasers and Thermage and Ulthera we offer other options including Pronox nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas. 

During a Thermage or Ulthera treatment, your clinician will monitor the intensity to maintain your comfort level. The device also has an integrated cooling system for your skin’s surface.

As a fractional laser, Fraxel and Sciton are gold-standard treatments and reliably effective methods to replenish fresh new collagen and elastin in your skin and refresh your complexion without dramatic changes or extended downtime. It’s effective for treating fine lines like crow’s feet and can improve the look of sun-damaged skin and discoloration. 

Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to safely heat the dermis while simultaneously cooling the skin’s surface. Ulthera uses ultrasound to heat the skin on the deep tissue plane. Both create a wound healing cascade that renews collagen and elastin and leads to lifting and tightening of most areas of the body.
