Droopy Eyelid

Droopy Eyelid
A droopy eyelid is caused by excess skin which appears more pronounced over time due to sun damage, skin laxity or water retention.

Treatments for Droopy Eyelid

The appearance of excess skin on the eyelid may emphasize the signs of aging and fatigue.

As we age, we begin to lose collagen which contributes to the skin’s plumpness and youth. As collagen decreases, skin becomes thinner and loose, creating the droopy eyelid.

Treatments such as PlexR and resurfacing lasers like Youlase help to vaporise excess skin to tighten the eyelid for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

SYMPTOMS of Droopy Eyelid

Excess skin above the eye will look like a droopy eyelid which can possibly effect vision or cause dryness in time.


CAUSES of Droopy Eyelid

  • Ageing
  • Skin laxity
  • Smoking
  • Genetics

Prevention of Droopy Eyelid

Saggy eyelids may be predetermined by genetics. As saggy eyelids are caused by excess or loose skin, tips to prevent saggy eyelids include protecting your skin with SPF50 daily as UV damage from the sun can break down collagen and elastin in the skin which causes skin laxity. Quit smoking if you smoke as the toxins in the smoke also damage the skin, affecting collagen and elastin causing the skin to dry. Take a daily collagen supplement to maintain your collagen levels for overall skin health.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
