Upper Eyelid Drooping – What To Do
This is sometimes referred to as hooding. There are several nonsurgical options and, of course, the surgical one – an upper lid blepharoplasty.
For just mild hooding, either eyelid Thermage or eyelid Fraxel. Special small tips are used for this. Thermage provides a little more tightening and Fraxel is a little better for those fine, crepey lines. Best for the 30-50 age group usually.
With moderate hooding, a fractionated CO2 like the DEKA DOT is best, and 1-3 treatments are needed, depending on how severe the hooding is.
For severe hooding, the CO2 can be used but usually surgery is a better option. If you decide to go the CO2 laser route anyway, expect to need at least 3 treatments if you have severe hooding.
