Non-surgical eye lift refers to a range of treatments with the aim of lifting droopy eyebrows, smoothing wrinkles around the eye or a lower eyelid lift. It can involve facial treads, cosmetic injections, radiofrequency skin tightening, plasma skin tightening and other non-surgical approaches.
Non-Surgical Eye Lift Options
- NEWEST – Plasma eye lift
- Facial Threads for a brow lift
- Radiofrequency resurfacing
- Cosmetic Injections.
Plasma Eye Lift
Very new to Australia, the plasma eye lift or plasma skin tightening is specialised technology to create tiny plasma arcs to the skin to sublimate surface tissue and create a lifting and tightening effect. The tightening effect is immediate due to tissue contraction and is maintained because the injury caused stimulates your skins fibroblasts to lay down new collagen. The maintains a lifting and tightening effect that improves over a 4 months period.
Downtime: 5-7 days (can be longer), swelling very severe from day 2 to 4, bruising and discolouration is noticeable. Does not prevent work, but you will probably want to hide away for up to a weel.
Cost: $1250 for non-surgical eye lift
Lasts: long lasting, however the process of aging continues, so may need retreatment at ?5years.
Facial Threads for Brow Lift
Using either facial threads or cosmetic injections can give a brow lift, upper face or forehead lift or an eyelift without surgery, to create a younger more refreshed look. There are two different approaches. One is focussed on eyebrow lift or upper facelift and the second is eyelift or non-surgical blepharoplasty.
Though a brow lift can help lift the upper eyelid as well, it is best to consider these separately. The choice of approach for eyebrow lift always includes consideration of opening around the eye area, but there are multiple factors in play and sometimes combinations of forehead thread lift and cosmetic injections are the best option. But as it is complex our Doctors offer a free assessment at the outset to determine the best approach.
Sometimes surgery is the best option for eyelift and browlift but our Doctors will be able to help in their assessment.
Browlift, Forehead Lift or Upper Facelift
Using Facial threads is a non-surgical way to achieve forehead lift without surgery. This is considered for mild, moderate and even severe brow descent. Our Doctors will be able to assist you in the degree of brow lift you can expect from these procedures. We choose to use Aptos non-surgical thread lifting, as they provide multiple choices to forehead and browlift that can be tailored to suit your particular concerns.
Aptos Threads For Eyebrow Lift & Forehead Lift
An eyebrow lift can be performed using either threads or with cosmetic injections. If there is considerable brow descent then the best non-surgical approach to brow lift is either a thread forehead lift or surgery.
Cosmetic Injections For Brow Lift
The technique of using combinations of muscle relaxants and dermal fillers to create a brow lift is well established. These are advanced techniques and we will refer you to our Doctors who have many years of experience in creating eyebrow lifts.
Non-surgical Eye Lift
Create a more open appearance with your eyes and smooth the surrounding area with a non-surgical eye lift treatment. Once upper eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty was the only option. However, a facial thread lift or cosmetic injectables are both non-surgical options for a sagging brow and droopy eyelid.

Non-Surgical Eye Lift With Cosmetic Injections
Non-Surgical Eye lifts work to create an open eye look by raising the brow’s position. Using a combination of cosmetic injectables can help achieve a smoother eye area and openness without surgery. The result is not as dramatic as the eyelid surgery but can be a useful option for women with hooded eyes. We expect to achieve up to a 1-2 mm eye lift with wrinkle relaxing injections, and more definition and outer brow lift with dermal fillers.
We offer a free assessment to determine your suitability for a non-surgical eye lift. Sometimes blepharoplasty is the only answer, but if you are not ready for this, you may achieve enough of an eye lift without surgery. You get to discuss your options before you decide.
Cost: Variable depending on the filler and area treated.
Lasts: 4 month to 2 years.
Non- Surgical Eyelift with Radiofrequency Skin Tightening.
A non-surgical tightening lifting of the upper eyelid, lower eyelids, brows and wrinkles smoothing around the eye area can be achieved with ablative radio-frequency skin tightening. Directly over eyelids cannot be treated, so there is the limitation in the rejuvenation possible for an eyelid lift, but effective for smoothing eye wrinkles and lifting of the brow.
Downtime: Generally around 7 days, however after day 2 barely visible with makeup.
Last: 2- 5 years.
Cost: $660 for 2 treatments. Generally 4 treatments required.
