Are you concerned about sagging eyelids or brows? Our doctors could help achieve a long-lasting result for you without having to resort to plastic surgery.


Why Sagging Eyelids (Ptosis) occur

Ptosis, also known as ‘drooping eyelid’, is caused by the loss of subcutaneous and dermal volume in most people. Those with particularly strong frown muscles tend to suffer from sagging eyelids. In more severe cases, the recognised treatment of choice is known as a ‘blepharoplasty’. This is the surgical removal of redundant skin from around the eye area: however, most people suffering from this condition do not require surgical intervention.

No need for surgery

Our doctors can raise the eyebrow to achieve a longer lasting result for you, without resorting to plastic surgery. This non-surgical brow lift can be achieved through a combination of Botox, Dermal Fillers and/or Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Natura uses SmartXide to remove a customised pattern of thousands of microscopic ‘dots’ rather than the entire skin surface. The high-energy laser causes the outer layers of the epidermis to peel away as the skin heals. The laser also heats the dermis, which stimulates the production of new collagen.

(Any rare causes of Ptosis that are not suitable for non-surgical treatment can be identified during your free Skin Evaluation.)

For further information or to arrange a free Skin Evaluation, call Natura on 01925 398 304.

Our doctor answers your questions


  • How many treatments will I need?

    Due to the sensitive nature of the tissue around the eyelids, the CO2 laser has to be used at a lower setting compared to other areas of the face. The number of treatments required usually varies between four and six.


  • How long does the treatment take?

    The procedure itself is very quick, taking around 30 minutes.


  • Is it safe using the laser so close to the eyes?

    Yes. Natura patients wear specially made eye protection that’s similar to a contact lens and completely protects the eyeball. It will not affect your vision or cause any damage to the eye itself.


  • Is this a better option than plastic surgery?

    For severe cases of sagging eyelids, surgery is the answer. Thanks to Natura, you don’t have to wait for things to become that bad! Our approach to sagging eyelids means that you never need to have surgery.


  • How long will it last?

    Depending on the individual this treatment gives results lasting up to a year and a half.


  • Are there any additional options you might discuss with me?

    To improve sagging skin the doctor may also discuss the treatment of Botox and Dermal Fillers. This will provide a brow lift and compliment the Laser Resurfacing.

Dena Jones

Dena Jones, aged 59 years, has had her own business as an event and conference director for the last 17 years. She came to Dr Xavier at Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about Botox and other non-surgical treatments.

“It is important to me that I am confident and feel good about myself”

“I have run my own business as an event manager for conferences and parties for the last 17 years. It is a competitive and active work environment and as a result of this, I meet a variety of people, of all ages. It is therefore very important to me that I feel confident in both how I look and feel. I was also to be married for a second time so I began to research non-surgical treatments such as Botox and Dermal Fillers.”

“During the course of my research I began to realise how important it was to me that a fully qualified Doctor carried out my treatment. After all, I was getting married and I wanted to look my best on the photographs and for my husband, so I couldn’t risk having my treatment go wrong. I knew I could trust a doctor with experience to make me look my best.”

“Dr. Xavier assured me that I wouldn’t end up with a ‘frozen face’ on my wedding day, everyone would be able to see how happy I am!”

“I rang Natura Skin Clinic and booked a free skin evaluation so I could learn a bit more about the options available to me. I mean, you can research all day online but until you see a doctor you don’t really know what is best for you personally. On the day I saw Dr. Xavier at the Lowton branch of the clinic. He answered all the questions I had about fillers and non-surgical face lifts, but he also recommended and advised me on what would be best for me. I decided to go ahead with a course of Botox. Dr. Xavier assured me that I wouldn’t end up with a ‘frozen face’ on my wedding day, everyone would be able to see how happy I am!”

“I’ve always been worried about needles, but the doctor put me at ease and explained each step of the treatment.”

“On the day of my treatment I arrived at the clinic and was seen straight away. I’ve always been worried about needles, but the doctor put me at ease and explained each step of the treatment. He also showed me the needle which put my mind at rest. The Botox treatment itself took about 20 minutes so it’s a convenient procedure to fit into any busy lady’s day. Immediately after the treatment I had a couple of tiny red marks on my skin, but by the time I got back to work they had completely disappeared and no-one knew a thing. Since the treatment I feel more confident in my looks in both a working and social environment. Particularly in the working environment I felt a change. I don’t necessarily want the experiences that are in my head to be reflected on my face.”

“I recommend Natura Skin Clinic to everyone. Not only are the treatments superb but the clinic is fresh, modern and clean with a calming atmosphere.”

“We all know the saying ‘people buy from people’, well, at Natura the people are lovely and they are backed up by medical expertise.”
