Droopy Eyelids / Fallen Brows

The term ‘droopy eyelids’ (medically known as eyelid ptosis), refers to the sagging of the skin of the upper eyelid. The eyes are one of the main focal points of the face and play a huge role in how we communicate with others, as well as displaying facial expressions and in showing emotions.

Ageing is the most common reason we experience some drooping of the eyelids and in most cases begins around our late 30’s to early 40’s. Eyelid ptosis usually first presents itself in a mild form, whereby the crease of the eyelids begins to sit a little lower than in our 20’s. In some rare cases (mostly in people much older) where the condition is advanced, the eyelid can begin to cover more of the eye and therefore can cause impairment to the vision and / or normal function of the eye.

About this condition

Droopy eyelids are normally caused by two common age related factors. One, is where the collagen and elastin in the skin has begun to diminish and the skin has started to lose its ability to contract, collecting as folds in the eyelid area.

The other is due to a depreciation of the levator muscle that supports the eyelids and controls the lifting motion associated with keeping the eyes open. As this muscle becomes less effective, the eyelid may take on a fallen appearance.

Further causes of this condition can be due to: nerve injury (as a result of cataract surgery) trauma, stroke or a stye.

Droopy eyelids can affect both men and women of any age or ethnicity and can be present in either one or both eyes – unilateral ptosis or bilateral ptosis. Drooping eyelids are sometimes also associated with the appearance of a fallen brow.This may occur when the fat pads around the eyes begin to break down and the skin structure can no longer support the weight effectively and the lid of the eye begins to pull the brow downward beyond an acceptable margin.

Whether you are experiencing one or both of these conditions, an appearance that was once joyful and awake, can often become weary and worried looking.

In one way or another, we all consider the way we look, and through non surgical intervention at Nassif MedSpa your eyes can regain their youthful look, framed perfectly by the eyebrow to retain a calm and relaxed appearance of the upper face.

Wow where do I begin! I had my reservations about this place because I had limited knowledge but as soon as I pulled up into the private car park and was greeted by a lovely professional lady and saw the interior, all my reservations were quickly put to bed. I had my initial consultation with Amanda - she nothing short of amazing. Knowledge, honest, patient centric, very well educated and absolutely lovely. She has a genuine passion for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures and is ahead of the curve in terms of innovations in skincare and aesthetics. I can’t wait to go back next week to start my treatments. It was all in all an amazing experience. I even called my friends and husband afterwards to tell them about it. For me, the little details matter. I was offered a drink and when I asked for water the receptionist asked if I’d like ice and a slice of lemon. It came on a tray with little dried flowers and a napkin. Honestly can’t recommend highly enough. Professional and knowledgeable yet personable and friendly. I think this is going to be my go-to place for treatments and advice moving forward.

As always Amanda and her team were professional and friendly. Lovely greeting by everyone especially. Love the salon as it’s so clean, fresh and bright! The team really put you at ease (thanks Amanda, Ray and Faye) and looking forward to coming back for future treatments. I had the BBL Hero Laser treatment which is a state of the art laser facial treatment and the results so far have been amazing! Highly recommended!

I recently attended NassifMD Medical Spa for a treatment I had been researching for a while. I was extremely nervous before I attended, however I was greeted with such warmth and I immediately felt at ease. During the consultation Dr Ryan and Amanda were so patient with me and listened to all of my concerns. They didn’t pressurise me into having any treatment, instead they listened and advised. The procedure was exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It has really improved my confidence, my only regret is that I didn’t have it sooner! I can’t wait to go back for my review and to also have more treatments. I can’t recommend them enough!

I went in for a consultation and it was a wonderful experience. The Dr and an associate spent a good amount of time explaining different procedures to me and I didn't feel rushed at all when I had questions. I plan on getting some of the treatments in the near future and am looking forward to it.

As soon as I entered I was greeted by the most loveliest women who made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The place itself was really beautiful and clean. When I went in for my treatment, Dr Ryan and Amanda really took their time to understand what was bothering me. What I really admired was the fact that they were really professional in the way that they gave me realistic expectations and didn’t pressure me into any treatment without making sure I was certain it’s what I wanted. They thoroughly went through the treatments and explained everything in detail so I had a better understanding what was achievable. As I felt in good hands I went along with one of treatments suggested and I’m extremely satisfied with the results provided! I travelled a bit away but I couldn’t be happier that I did knowing I was in safe hands. Thank you to the team , I will definitely be back!

From the minute I walked in I was greeted by the sweetest women. They made sure I was comfortable and had a drink while I filled out paper work. I then went back to my session, I had a clarifying facial. It was such a relaxing experience and my skin looked and felt amazing once finished! I have very sensitive skin so I was a bit nervous to see how it would do with different products during the service, but I loved them so much I ended up buying the line! I look forward to my next visits at the med spa and to get my skin back on track. Thank you to everyone I met for making me feel very comfortable and welcomed, and for being so thorough in explaining all of the products and different ways of taking care of my skin!
