Sunken Upper Eyelid Treatment

In Office Fat Grafting for Recontouring Sunken Upper Eyelids Eyes are one of the most prominent element of your facial aesthetics, and signs of aging are usually first visible from your upper eyelids only. As the eyelid skin begins to lose elasticity with age and the natural fatty tissue moves from its position, the upper eyelids can develop a sunken look. If you want to avoid eyelid plastic surgery, you may consider the innovative Renuvion J-Plasma non-surgical treatment for recontouring of sunken upper eyelids.  

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Renuvion upper eyelid lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.  

What is Renuvion Upper Eyelid Lift? 

Renuvion J-Plasma recontouring for sunken upper eyelids makes use of ionized gas to reduce skin laxity in your upper lids and restore rejuvenated, youthful appearance of the eyes. Controlled delivery of energy and precision are the hallmarks of this non-surgical upper eyelid lift treatment. The procedure is ideally suited for a sensitive area such as the eyes as it does not involve the use of aggressive lasers or invasive plastic surgery.  

The ionized gas used in Renuvion J-Plasma upper eyelid lift is a combination of radio frequency energy (RF) and helium plasma. This unique combination produces a remarkable and distinct tissue contraction to restore tighter, smoother and youthful upper lids. As the energy is applied in the underlying tissue below the skin surface, the skin renewal effects are deeper, long lasting and more natural looking.  

Sub-Dermal Application of Plasma Energy 

While Renuvion treatment can be applied topically on the skin surface to reduce minor wrinkles and fine lines, it can create more substantive and lasting effects when it is used sub-dermally (under the skin surface). Your plastic surgeon will create tiny incisions in the natural creases of your upper lids through which they will deliver the plasma energy directly to the underlying loose tissue.  

In a controlled and gentle manner, this unique energy combination will work to instantly contract the weak tissue and volumize the upper lid. You may be able to notice the shrinkage effects immediately after the treatment, but the results will continue to improve over several weeks and months. This is because Renuvion J-Plasma treatment process will stimulate the generation of new collagen fibers under the skin.  

This new collagen will continue to sculpt, firm up and add volume to your upper eyelid skin over the next few months. Skin renewal will occur from deep inside, and the results will be more sustainable and natural looking. Depending on your needs, your Renuvion upper eyelid recontouring procedure can be combined with other treatments as well.
