Drooping Eyelids & Brows

Light Touch Clinic specialises in the effective treatment of drooping eyelids & brows that can boost dermal volume around the upper eyelids & eyebrows.

About Drooping Eyelids & Brows

The appearance of the eye area is prone to change as we age, often resulting in a drooping, tired, or sad expression. Eyelid ptosis refers to a drooping eyelid. This condition can be caused by excess skin and the weight of which leads to sagging, or when the eyebrow and forehead descend and push the eyelid down.

Drooping eyelids & brows are often an aesthetic concern that develops as a person ages. However, if the skin on the eyelid falls too far over the eyelid margin it can impact on a person’s vision.

Drooping eyelids & brows can affect one or both eyes. It is considered to be a fallen, or ptotic, eyelid when the lower edge starts to cover the coloured part of the eye. This concern is a common result of weakening of the levator muscles – the muscles that open the eye.

Drooping Eyelids & Brows – Frequently Asked Questions

Drooping eyelids and brows, also known as ptosis, can be caused by various factors. The most common cause is ageing, as the skin and muscles around the eyes naturally lose elasticity and strength over time.

Other factors include genetics, which can influence the development of weak eyelid muscles or excessive skin in the eyelid area.

Certain medical conditions such as nerve damage, thyroid disorders, or neurological conditions can also contribute to drooping eyelids and brows.

Additionally, trauma or injury to the eye area can result in ptosis. Identifying the underlying cause is crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment approach.

Book a consultation with us so we can help to you determine the best treatment option for your drooping eyelids & brows.

Genetics influence drooping eyelids and brows by determining factors like muscle strength, skin elasticity, and fat distribution in the eyelid area. Inherited traits can predispose you to weaker eyelid muscles or excessive skin, leading to ptosis.

Additionally, genetic factors can influence the rate at which collagen and elastin are produced in the skin, impacting its elasticity and firmness.

While there are facial exercises and massages that claim to help strengthen the muscles around the eyes and lift drooping eyelids and brows, their effectiveness is often debated.

Some people may find that regular practice of facial exercises, such as raising and lowering the eyebrows or gently pressing fingers against the forehead while resisting the muscles, provides a temporary tightening effect.

However, you should approach these exercises with caution, as they may not be suitable for everyone and could potentially exacerbate existing issues if performed incorrectly.

Additionally, the results of facial exercises may vary, and they are unlikely to provide significant or long-lasting improvement for severe cases of drooping eyelids and brows.
