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.

Highly recommend Nassif Med Spa! The staff are super helpful and knowledgeable, the skin care products are excellent (I love their SPF) and their laser treatments are fast and effective. The service was great and the communication was so kind and efficient. If you can get an appointment when lockdown is over you won't regret it! The ladies there are amazing :)

Great spa facility in a good location, which was also very clean and took all Covid-19 measures seriously. Amanda did my treatment and was really friendly, as were all staff I spoke with on the day. My skin is looking great and I have received many comments about how my acne scarring has significantly reduced. I definitely recommend this clinic to anyone looking to book.

I felt in safe hands from the first moment I spoke toRae at Nassif Medical Spa. I had originally enquired about a different procedure. I was advised honestly and professionally and told that I would not be a good candidate for the first procedure and that a different procedure would procure much better results. The spa itself is an absolute joy to behold, an opulent setting. The staff were warm and welcoming putting me at ease immediately. The doctor spoke in depth about the procedure I had and informed me of the results I could hope to gain. He made sure I was happy to proceed before starting treatment. I am absolutely delighted with the results. I keep being told that I look amazing and questioned if I’ve changed my hair.. only I know the real secret!

I did a lot of research on clinics before choosing the Nassif Med Spa for my treatment. What attracted me the most is the fact that my treatment would be carried out by healthcare professionals and I like the less is more approach. After my consultations it was very clear that they understood my wish to look like a better version of myself rather than a totally different person. The team were so kind, considerate and discreet. The communication was excellent and the clinic is beautifully fitted out. I felt very comfortable from start to finish. I would highly recommend the Nassif Med Spa to anyone. I love my lips, thank you so much!

Nassif MedSpa is a stunning place, the girls who welcomed me last Sunday where lovely and really put me at ease before my treatment. My appointment with Dr Harris was amazing, he is very reassuring calm and explains everything in great detail. It was great experience from the moment I walked through the door and will definitely be back.
