Some Of Our Eyelid Rejuvenation Procedures
- Chemical peels
Commonly referred to as an eyelid lift or eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is an advanced procedure with the ultimate goal of improving the aesthetic of the eyelids, be it the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Dr. Bryant proficiently corrects loose or sagging skin that may create a tired appeal or excess skin in the upper eyelid that may be compromising your vision. Dr. Bryant also performs a transconjunctival blepharoplasty–a precise technique that implements an incision within the inner lining of the lower eyelid rather than the outer eyelid– to grant very minimal to no scarring after your procedure.
One of the most renowned anti-aging formulas in the world, Botox has been approved as a safe and effective treatment to rejuvenate the eyes without surgery or downtime. Designed with highly purified botulinum toxin protein, this formula works to carefully reduce muscle activity within the injection site. With minimized muscle contraction, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes may fade within 48-72 hours of your treatment.
Dermal fillers are distinctive formulas mainly comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occuring molecule within the skin that works to bind moisture together. When administered into the skin, fillers immediately volumize your complexion and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These amazing solutions grant fast-acting results of youthful eyes without surgery or extended downtime.
Chemical peels have grown in popularity for eye rejuvenation without invasive measures. Crafted with safe and refreshing anti-aging properties, these amazing treatments can brighten the skin around the eyes and re-establish a lustrous aesthetic. During your treatment, one of our certified skin specialists carefully applies the chemical peel solution around the eyes. Over time, the solution peels off, ultimately unveiling younger-looking skin.

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
This patient underwent an upper and lower blepharoplasty. She wanted to reduce the heavy look of her upper eyelids and the fat deposits of her lower eyelid. This was achieved using twilight anesthesia. Notice the significantly improved appearance while still getting a very natural appearing result.
This patient underwent minimally invasive upper and lower eyelid lift under twilight anesthesia. She had congenital hypertrophy of her orbicularis muscle and significant fat deposits around her eyes. Her skin and tissues were gently re-contoured and small amounts of excess tissues were removed. This allows for a smooth contour and natural appearance after surgery.
Am I An ideal Blepharoplasty Candidate?
