Hooded eyes, often described as having an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease, create a hood-like appearance on the eyelid. This can make the eyelid appear smaller. While some people are born with hooded eyelids, others may develop them over time due to the natural aging process. The skin becomes less elastic, and gravity takes its toll, leading to a more pronounced hooded look. While hooded eyes can be a beautiful and distinctive feature, for many, they pose cosmetic concerns and can sometimes obstruct vision.
The Non-Surgical Approach to Treating Hooded Eyes
Beverly Hills Aesthetics, led by the esteemed Dr. Sam Assassa, M.D., understands the unique concerns of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills patients when it comes to aesthetic beauty. Recognizing that not everyone is keen on surgical solutions, Dr. Assassa specializes in non-surgical treatments that offer remarkable results with minimal downtime.
For hooded eyes, various non-surgical methods can help rejuvenate and lift the eye area. Dermal fillers, for instance, can be strategically injected to provide volume and support to the brow and upper eyelid area, subtly lifting the skin and reducing the hooded appearance. Similarly, Botox® can be used to relax specific muscles around the eyes, resulting in a natural, lifted look.
Another advanced treatment is the use of non-surgical skin tightening techniques. Utilizing devices that harness the power of radiofrequency or ultrasound energy, these treatments stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. As collagen increases, it helps tighten and lift the skin, providing a more open and refreshed look to the eyes.
Benefits of Opting for Non-Surgical Treatments
Choosing non-surgical treatments for hooded eyes offers several advantages for the discerning Beverly Hills patient:
- Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, non-surgical treatments generally allow patients to resume their regular activities almost immediately.
- Less Risk: Without incisions, the risk of complications like infections or significant scarring is greatly reduced.
- Subtle, Natural Results: Non-surgical treatments aim to enhance the patient’s natural beauty, providing results that are noticeable but not overly dramatic.
- Flexibility: These treatments can be tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient and can be adjusted over time.
