Eyelid sagging

Posted by michelle_s_phxaz (My Page) on

My skin is in pretty good condition for my age (38) but my eyelids are starting to droop. Is there a cream, product, magic dust, anything that will help tighten the skin above the eyes? Below my eyes is fine, and my crow's feet are minimal, I am just starting to look tired all the time and my eyes aren't as wide as they used to be.

Thanks!

My uncle had sagging upper eyelids. He went to a doctor,who did plastic surgery and fixed them. But it was not a cosmetic procedure,it was necessary because his sagging lids were causing vision problems. Due to this,it was fully covered by his health insurance.

Thanks Jannie, but I am looking for alternatives to surgery. I wouldn't qualify for that anyway, mine is definitely more of a vanity problem than a vision one!!! Thanks though!

I have seen some eye creams out there but I don't know which would be best for helping to tighten the upper lids.

Avon has this new product for eyes. ANEW CLINICAL Eye Lift At 28.00 it's not a bargain but beats the heck out of the cost of an eyelift. I'm going to give it a try.

I just found this board and noticed your post. I've found facial exercise to be really good for eyelids. Mine were getting droopy and crepey several years ago. I started doing exercises and it made a huge difference. My lids themselves feel thicker and stronger. It also has helped circles under my eyes and "puppet lines" between my nose and mouth and between my mouth and chin.

I researched several programs and finally bought a video from www.flexeffect.com. You can go to their website and read a lot of info about it.

I have a hard time keeping myself in the habit of doing these everyday, but when I do, I really notice a difference in my face.

I use this - I think you can get it elsewhere, but I get it from QVC. You can feel it tightening the skin as it dries. If I put on too much it really feels tight. I only use it on my eyelids, but I guess according to the description you can use it on other parts of the face too.

You could get a nonsurgical lift with botox or dysport.
