Your eyes are the first thing most people will notice about you. The first impression you make on others can be a defining moment in new relationships with friends, love interests, and colleagues, making it all the more important to keep them looking their best.
Unfortunately, the area around our eyes happens to be where the thinnest skin is found on our bodies. The thinner the skin, the more prone it is to wrinkling. This explains why sagging eyelids are one of the first areas of concern for many aging men and women.
If you’re ready to improve the appearance of your eyelids, take a look at our list of 4 different solutions you can use to lift and rejuvenate drooping lids.
1. Massaging Of Acupuncture Points
Massaging of acupuncture points can be employed to help lift the lids and open up the eyes naturally. There are different pressure points around the eyes which acupuncturists recommend stimulating to create flattering results.
Here’s how you do it: Using both of your index fingers, massage clockwise, making 20 circular motions to the following 6 areas: the inner corner of the eye, the outer corner of the eye, the center area of the bottom of the eyes, in between the eyebrows, under the mid-brow, and at the end of the eyebrows.
These massage exercises should be done in 5 sets of 20 every day for at least two months before results become visible.
Strengthening the eyelid muscles can strengthen and correct drooping lids. Try this exercise to keep your lids lifted, creating a more youthful appearance in the eyes.
Here’s how you do it: Take your index fingers and place them on the brow bones right under your eyebrows. Place your fingers there firmly while slowly closing your eyes. You should feel a light tugging sensation. Once your eyes are fully shut, squeeze them closed with more force and hold this movement for 5 seconds. Repeat this exercise 5 times a day for 2 months and you should notice your drooping eyelids appear more lifted.
3. Injectable Fillers
For those who are ready to create more noticeable results, there are many injections available today that make an excellent alternative to surgery depending on the area of concern. Injectables soften unwanted wrinkles while providing a light lifting that many patients love.
For example, men and women who want to reduce the signs of aging often turn to injectables like Botox which diminish unwanted wrinkles such as crow’s feet. Botox can also be injected under the brow to give a youth-enhancing brow lift effect.
Injectables are seen as the most effective noninvasive solution to correcting mild cases of wrinkles, drooping, or sagging around the eyes.
How it works: Botox injections are performed in a quick, pain-free 15-minute session. Afterward, the eyelids are lifted while the eyes look more open and awake. The results last between 4-6 months.
Many men and women suffer from excess skin weighing down their eyelids and obstructing their vision. In these more extreme cases, the most effective solution is often surgery.
How it works: Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid surgery, is an ideal option for deeper, more dramatic results. A quick procedure can help remove the excess skin and fat, in the eyelids, effectively tightening up the area and opening up the eyes.
