    Suggestions for droopy eyelids

    The women in my family have droopy eyelids. I am almost 40 and feel like I am beginning to follow in their footsteps.

    What can I do to prevent or mask the droop? Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Dear Kelley,

    A very very small amount of artfully placed botox at the corner of the eye can lift the lid. Also, a light natural filler such as Restylane or Juvederm injected under the eyebrow can lift the eyelid as well.

    For my patients with "genetic droopy lids" we often start these treatments in the 30s and 40s to help prevent the need for a surgical eyelift in the future.

    I hope that helps

    Short of undergoing the knife, you can Google "facelift tape" and find adhesive strips specially designed to give you a temporary lift. Try this one. http://skincare.lovetoknow.com/Instant_Face_Lift_Tape

    Wow! So are you saying that Botox will actually "Lift"? I thought it only temporarily semi-paralyzed the mussles to minimize the crows-feet etc. I keep seeing advertizements for "Life--Style Lifts What is your personal or professional opinion on this procedure? Also, I Just started my second step using 1% Retin-A Gel in the evening...is there any products(s) you could recommend that will enhance the effects of the Retiin-A? I hear a lot about liquid vitamin "C" how can I tell if I am buying the best (percentage,source,absorption...etc) product?

    One last question...I forgot to mention...I am a 55 year old male ...so there is 0% chance I would use a any of these 5-10-Step treatments....I also am a victim of hereditary/genetic droopy eye lids/brows, frown lines, deep frown-lines and droopy jowls...I can't afford surgery or and/or expensive injections..,,so what 1 product would you recommend would give the best temporary (5-6 hours) face-lift?



    Thank yoi
