Eyelid Skin Tightening in London

Our eyes are commonly described as the “windows to the soul” and are often one of the things we tend to focus on when we meet people for the first time. As such, it can be said that our eyes can reveal a lot about us, from how we really feel about something and what we’re truly thinking, to disclosing that most closely guarded of facts: how old we are. And it’s with regards to the latter that the appearance of our eyes can be particularly damaging to our self-esteem.

Sagging, droopy-looking eyelids can be one of the first signs of ageing, causing significant lapses in confidence to everyone affected by this unfortunate phenomenon. Thankfully, Dr Firas is on hand to help combat this upsetting skin concern, offering eyelid skin tightening to all of his patients from his clinic in Harley Street, London. But how does this work and why is it needed?

The skin around the eyes

The skin is the body’s largest organ, protecting us from a variety of harmful external agents on a daily basis. Noted for its intelligent design, its elasticity and dexterity can help us to withstand an enormous amount of stress and activity, whether this comes about as a result of the ageing process, repetitive movements or a multitude of other lifestyle factors.

Unfortunately, as the skin around the eyes is said to be ten times thinner than that located on the rest of our face, not all the parts of our body are afforded the same level of protection and this can open the door for a series of distressing indicators of age to make themselves known. This means that our eyelids, essential components in the fulfilment of many routine tasks, including blinking, smiling and sleeping, are particularly vulnerable to the occurrence of sagging, wrinkles and lost volume.

Throw in the skin’s natural decline in collagen and elastin as the years go by, and it’s little wonder that many people become self-conscious about the skin around their eyes.

Tightening your eyelid skin

As a popular skin rejuvenation method, laser skin tightening is an integral procedure in helping scores of patients reduce the appearance of wrinkles, folds, creases and fine lines on their skin. This is also an effective procedure for improving the skin on the eyelids. By using thermal energy to target the skin’s deeper layers, laser skin tightening kickstarts the body’s natural repair processes from within for hugely impressive results.

As collagen production is encouraged, the eyelids experience a change that is both positive and noticeable, with puffiness and sagging replaced by a visible new firmness and tightness. And what’s more, this treatment can be performed in an hour or less – not bad for a non-surgical procedure!

Choosing whether or not to undergo aesthetic treatment isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly, which is why Dr Firas finds such value in a comprehensive one-to-one patient consultation before any treatment takes place. In this meeting, Dr Firas will discuss eyelid skin tightening with you in detail and answer any questions you may have.
