  Unhappy with the appearance of your eyelids?

We can improve the appearance of upper and lower eyelid naturally and restore your youthful appearance and widen your field of vision without no surgery, no downtime as well as reducing all possible surgical complications.

"Age, hereditary, some diseases can affect the muscles and skin of the upper and lower eyelids. In result, the upper and sometimes lower eyelids may become droopy or baggy as muscles lose their strength as well as your eyebrows which causes a tired or older appearance." - Harvard Health Publishing

Botox injections to eliminate wrinkles at the brow and forehead may also cause temporary drooping (although the problem can last as long as three months, so it may not feel temporary)

Upper eyelid surgery, also known as "blepharoplasty", is a traditional way which involves a surgical process that removes excess skin. It comes with its possible complications and slower recovery time.

Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift - Queen Brows Plasma Pen solution

Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift also known as non-surgical blepharoplasty is a non-invasive procedure that utilises a Plasma Pen (Phi-Ion) to lift and correct the upper and lower eyelid and treat wrinkles around the eyes.

 The Phi-Ion Plasma Pen is an effective non-surgical alternative to a traditional blepharoplasty that normally requires cutting through skin. The plasma generator machine can be used to treat baggy upper eyelids, wrinkles underneath the eyes.

Heidi always suggest her clients of any age to consider Plasma Pen treatment before blepharoplasty as it can effectively improve the eye area appearance without any surgery, it is applicable to all ages but not all skin type (Skin type of 5 and 6 are excluded).

If you want to get the same result as the surgery, you might require two sessions within 2-4 month after the first treatment done, but 80% of our clients are very happy even with the first session and prefer to keep it natural.

Non-Surgical Brow Lift

Adding a Brow Lift to the Upper Eyelid Lift Treatment for the Optimum Result

In cases where the eyebrows are also droopy, a procedure to elevate the eyebrows also may be appropriate. This procedure, called a brow lift, involves making incisions into the scalp and tightening the skin to lift the eyebrows.

Procedure done for above client is as follows:

  • First session: Microneedling + Upper Eyelid Lift
  • Second session after 2 weeks: Brow Lift + Crow’s Feet
  • Recommended session: Microneedling 2 weeks later

The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately, but the best results will be seen after 4 weeks. For some clients an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results.
