What is a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
At Refining Beauty, our staff is pleased to perform a few of the most state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments on the market. Skin tightening is a minimally invasive treatment that uses the high-end system by Alma to smooth and firm loose skin tissue. Opus Plasma® is designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production for a tighter and more youthful appearance. During a nonsurgical eyelid lift, Dr. James Leffingwell specifically elevates loose and saggy skin around the eyes. Get in touch with our facility in Midlothian, TX, to set up a consultation with Dr. Leffingwell to learn whether this unique procedure would be a good fit for your cosmetic concerns.
"Friendly staff, very understanding. The procedure room is clean and comfortable. I had liposuction of my inner thighs and I am so happy I went to refining beauty. I only felt a small amount of pain and discomfort but the doctor took care of that for me. I would highly recommend refining beauty."- J.C. / Google / Sep 04, 2022
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I had a wonderful experience at Refining Beauty. Rebeca is doing an excellent job every time I come in. I can’t wait for my next sessions. I highly recommend this place"- Google User / Google / Apr 01, 2022
"Over the years I have developed some abdominal and back fat that I have not been happy with and have not been able to lose with dieting. I am typically anti-plastic surgery. But I learned about laser Lipo from a friend who referred me to Dr. Leffingwell. After speaking with Dr.Jim and his staff I was more intrigued. They answered all my questions and shared with me exactly what to expect. I decided to get this procedure because it was less invasive. The procedure was exactly how they described it and it was very simple. I was out of the office in a couple of hours. The results are amazing and I wish I had done this years ago. But the timing in meeting Dr. Leffingwell and his staff couldn’t have been more perfect. This dude is very happy with the results. No more love handles for me. I can’t wait until the summer to get some sun on these new abs. Thank you Dr.Jim !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 09, 2022
"In short, Dr. Leffingwell demonstrated why physicians are often held in high regard. His competence and manner were very reassuring under difficult circumstances. As the "on call" doctor for his partnership, he stepped up, and, within about an hour altered my anxiety level from about 8 or 9 to around 2. Without the benefit of an assistant/nurse he performed brilliantly in alleviating my post surgery (deviated septum repair...) excessive bleeding."- J. / Healthgrades / Jan 31, 2022
Who is a candidate for a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
Loss of collagen and elastin causes loose or sagging skin over time. The Opus Plasma is designed to rejuvenate your skin by encouraging natural collagen and elastin production. This treatment is a great option for anyone looking to refresh their appearance without undergoing invasive procedures or plastic surgery. Dr. Leffingwell can perform a consultation to determine if this technology is the best option for your needs and goals at this time. Please inform our staff if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking any medications that make your skin more sensitive. We will be happy to assess your candidacy during this appointment.
What happens during a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
Our nonsurgical eyelid lift uses a small amount of plasma to tighten the skin without incisions or other invasive measures. This treatment option can help improve the appearance of drooping or sagging skin on the upper or lower eyelids. Our procedure begins when a member of our team cleans your skin to remove any excess oils or makeup. Refining Beauty may offer a topical anesthetic to numb the area. We then use the device to deliver a controlled amount of energy to the target areas. You may feel a warm sensation during this process, but it is generally well tolerated.
How long is recovery from a nonsurgical eyelid lift?
There is very little recovery time associated with a nonsurgical eyelid lift. When you go home following your procedure, you could experience some temporary redness and swelling around the eyes. We recommend refraining from sun exposure since the tissue will be a little sensitive. Most patients at Refining Beauty see a decrease in wrinkles and sagging after their first appointment, although our team advises 2 – 3 sessions to attain the best results. During a consultation, Dr. Leffingwell will suggest the ideal number of sessions based on the condition of your skin as well as your cosmetic concerns.
Nonsurgical eyelid lift FAQ
Will my nonsurgical eyelid lift hurt?
Most patients do not report high levels of discomfort during an Opus Plasma eyelid lift treatment. Prior to your treatment, a local numbing cream can be applied in order to keep you comfortable. However, you can usually expect just a slight burning feeling after your session.
How long will my Opus Plasma results last?
Most people at Refining Beauty notice an improvement in sagging eyelid skin following the first nonsurgical eyelid lift session, but Dr. Leffingwell may advise multiple sessions to ensure the best outcomes. After your optimal number of sessions are complete, results may last up to three years.
How many nonsurgical eyelid lift treatments will I need?
Often, our Midlothian, TX patients will experience significant results following their initial appointment. However, a series of 2-3 treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Leffingwell and his team will create a customized treatment plan that will work best for you.
