If sagging eyelids are making you look older and more tired than you feel, it may be time to consider your non surgical eye lift options. As an alternative to going under the knife, we can revive drooping eyelids with noninvasive solutions such as UPNEEQ® eye drops or minimally invasive treatments such as injectables.

Are you ready to learn more about the benefits of an eyelid lift without surgery and explore which techniques may best fit your needs? Let’s dive in!

What Is a Nonsurgical Eyelid Lift?

Unlike a surgical blepharoplasty, a nonsurgical eyelid lift can address issues such as sagging and drooping. In some cases, this treatment can also help improve your field of vision by correcting low-lying eyelids. Instead of incisions, we use eye drops or injections to help you appear more youthful and refreshed. Many patients prefer these less invasive methods because they don’t carry the risks and recovery time associated with a surgical eyelid lift.

The advantages of a nonsurgical eyelid lift include the following:

  • No downtime
  • No incisions
  • Less risk and discomfort compared to surgical procedures
  • Subtle, natural-looking results

Treatment Options for Sagging Eyelids

Fortunately, patients today can choose from a variety of innovative nonsurgical options to improve their aging eyelids. These include:

UPNEEQ Prescription Eye Drops

These FDA-approved, fast-acting eye drops can temporarily lift drooping eyelids. A condition called acquired eyelid ptosis (sagging) commonly occurs during the aging process, which weakens muscles in the upper eyelids. A daily drop of prescription UPNEEQ in each eye triggers the eye muscles to contract, elevating the eyelid an average of 1 mm. UPNEEQ eyedrops work quickly, and results can last up to 8 hours.

You may be a good candidate for UPNEEQ if:

  • You are seeking a “quick fix” to look more rejuvenated before a special occasion
  • You want your results to appear more subtle compared to a surgical eyelid lift
  • You have good overall eye health, and you do not suffer from an underlying eye or nerve condition
  • You want to try a temporary alternative before committing to a more permanent eyelid lift procedure

UPNEEQ effectively lifts eyelids with mild, moderate, or severe sagging. You can learn more about this innovative approach to treating acquired eyelid ptosis by watching this quick video:


Injectables such as Dysport® and dermal fillers can help improve sagging by lifting and smoothing the skin around the eyes. Dysport, similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, contains a purified form of botulinum toxin A that relaxes the eye or brow muscles. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid to create added facial volume—hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body.

Treatments such as facial fat transfer and fractional laser therapy may also help give the eyelids a smooth, lifted appearance. During your consultation, we will thoroughly explore which procedure best meets your needs.

You may be a good candidate for injectables to treat eyelid sagging if:

  • You want to reduce the signs of aging without lengthy downtime
  • You do not have severe drooping and creases
  • You have adequate eyelid skin elasticity
  • You are in good overall health
  • You have realistic expectations about your results

You may be a better candidate for a surgical eyelid lift if:

  • You have severe drooping and sagging
  • Your concerns include wrinkles and crow’s feet
  • You want to address a wider facial area that includes under the eye, the brow, or upper cheeks
  • You prefer dramatic, “one and done” results and can accommodate a longer recovery time

We may recommend combining nonsurgical treatment options to help you achieve your desired results. For example, if you have more comprehensive goals that include lifting the eyelids, addressing crow’s feet wrinkles, and adding volume to the cheeks, you may be a better candidate for a liquid facelift. This procedure accomplishes temporary full-face rejuvenation without surgery.
