Non-Surgical Eyelid and Brow Rejuvenation
Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Los Angeles.
Right for you?
Am I a Candidate for Non-Surgical Eyelid and Brow Rejuvenation?
If you have mild to moderate signs of aging in the upper face, non-surgical eyelid and brow rejuvenation may be a great option for you. Dr. Emer can assess your candidacy in a consultation by evaluating your facial tissue and structure and learning about your cosmetic concerns. Patients must be in good physical health, have realistic expectations, and understand that periodic retreatment will be needed to maintain results.
In cases of more pronounced skin laxity and volume loss, cosmetic surgery may be needed to achieve your desired results. Dr. Emer’s team of highly qualified plastic surgeons can perform brow lift surgery and eyelid surgery for patients who are not ideal candidates for non-surgical upper face rejuvenation.
What Can Non-Surgical Eyelid and Brow Rejuvenation Treat?
By combining facial sculpting, skin resurfacing, and collagen stimulation procedures, Dr. Emer can significantly improve many signs of aging. His brow and eyelid rejuvenation patients in West Hollywood often seek treatment for:
- Drooping upper eyelids
- Under-eye bags, dark circles, and hollows
- Wrinkles and fine lines, including crow’s feet
- Volume loss
- Mild skin laxity
- Forehead creases
- Heavy or sagging eyebrows
- Vertical forehead lines (frown lines)
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
How Can I Rejuvenate My Eyelids and Brows without Surgery?
Dr. Emer can employ various methods and technologies to restore a youthful look to your upper face. Brow and eyelid rejuvenation often involves one or more of the following cosmetic treatments:
Laser treatments deliver controlled heat to stimulate collagen production and achieve smoother, tighter skin.
Cosmelan Peels and Enlighten Peels can enhance results of laser treatments, fillers, and microneedling to further improve eye bags, hollows, and dark circles under the eyes. Cosmelan peels are safe for all skin types and are especially effective for individuals with olive skin/darker skin tones. The Cosmelan Peel is a non-inflammatory depigmentation treatment that targets pigmentation by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme in the melanin (skin pigmentation) formation process. At the same time, Cosmelan accelerates cellular turnover to remove dead skin cells, lift pigment, soften texture, smooth the skin, and minimize pores and fine lines.
This is a revolutionary form of internal RF heating that can be used to improve the entire upper and lower eyelids as well as the eyebrows for those with loose or crepey skin, under eye bags, and dark circles.
For some patients, Dr. Emer can brighten and lift the eye area by performing a thread lift. In addition to a subtle lift of the brows, this minimally invasive procedure stimulates collagen production to improve the skin in the treatment area.
Thermage, a radiofrequency (RF) collagen-boosting and skin tightening treatment, can be performed on the skin around the eyes and the eyelid skin. This procedure can minimize under-eye bags, brighten the eyes by lifting the upper eyelids and the eyebrows, and improve the appearance of crepey skin in the lower eyelid area.
Ultherapy ultrasound skin tightening is particularly effective at lifting the brow and forehead areas when used in combination with Thermage.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Dr. Emer is an expert and artist when it comes to dermal fillers. With his discernment in selecting the optimal filler for each treatment area and his precision injection technique, Dr. Emer can effectively resolve many cosmetic concerns in the eye and brow areas.
BOTOX and other neuromodulators can be injected to relax the forehead muscles that cause deep creases and to treat the fine lines at the outer corners of the eyes that are commonly referred to as “crow’s feet.”
Combining RF energy and cool helium plasma, Renuvion improves the signs of aging (including deep wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, pores, scars, and skin laxity). The focused heating tightens and peels the upper layers of skin with extreme precision; this leaves the surrounding area undamaged, smooths and tightens the periorbital skin, and improves the overall skin quality around the eyes.
Customized Skincare Protocol
Following your brow and eyelid rejuvenation procedure, Dr. Emer and his in-house skincare specialists will craft a customized skincare protocol that will brighten, strengthen, and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes and further improve the results of your treatment. Dr. Emer often recommends a combination of:
– RestorSea Pro Firming Eye Serum – This is a fast-absorbing serum that stimulates circulation, tightens the under-eye area, and helps reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles.
– Sente Illumine Eye Cream – Sente Illumine Eye Cream is clinically proven to diminish dark circles, lines, wrinkles and puffiness around the eye area.
Under-Eye (Tear Trough) Hollows and Dark Circles
For patients seeking improvement of dark under-eye circles and tear trough hollows, Dr. Emer uses a combination of dermal fillers such as Belotero, Juvederm Voluma /Volbella/Vollure
Dr. Emer follows the filler injections with an Aerolase microsecond YAG laser treatment, which heats the undersurface of the skin, removes pigmentation, and promotes circulation to decrease swelling and puffiness.
For under-eye bags, Dr. Emer creates a patient-specific combination approach that may include:
- Injectable fillers
- Skin tightening with external energy-based devices (such as Thermage, Forma, Venus Legacy, and BTL Exilis Ultra)
- Laser treatments (such as Fraxel or CO2
- Renuvion “shrink wrap” skin tightening
- Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells
- Cosmelan and Enlighten peels
- InMode AccuTite
Chemical Brow Lift
Dr. Emer performs Chemical Brow Lifts using neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau along with fillers to lift and refresh the brows and restore lost volume in the temples and eye troughs. This treatment is often paired with Ultherapy and thread lifting to achieve maximum results and collagen-boosting effects.
Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift
To improve puffiness and sagging under the eyes, Dr. Emer uses ablative skin resurfacing lasers, such as CO2 or Erbium, or Renuvion helium plasma radiofrequency (RF) energy to achieve incredible results and give you a far more youthful appearance. Renuvion and CO2 ablative laser resurfacing are both aggressive treatments, and the downtime is longer than other non-surgical procedures, but the results can be dramatic with just a single session.
How Much Does Eyelid and Brow Rejuvenation Cost?
The cost of non-surgical eyelid and brow rejuvenation can vary greatly from one patient to another based on the number and type of procedures needed for optimal results. Dr. Emer customizes each treatment plan to best address the patient’s skin type, cosmetic concerns, and desired outcome. He will provide detailed pricing information once he has formulated your treatment plan.
