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.

Pam Ousby

Pamela Ousby, aged 39 years, came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out how injectables could help treat her deep lines and wrinkles.

“I began to notice the fine lines, on my face, deepening and they were starting to look and feel more obvious to me”

“For the last couple of years I began to notice the fine lines, on my face, deepening and they were starting to look and feel more obvious to me. I had seen wrinkle reducing creams in the past but I wanted to have something done that would actually give proven and visible results. However, at the same time I didn’t want to drastically change my looks so it was very important to me that I found a doctor and clinic capable of the balancing the two.”

“I would be able to notice an improvement, but it would be subtle and natural looking, exactly what I was hoping to achieve.”

“I rang Natura Skin Clinic and booked a free skin evaluation. After looking on the internet I realised just how many different wrinkle reducing treatments are available so I wanted to discuss which would be best for me with a doctor. After speaking with Dr. Xavier I decided to book a course of Botox. He reassured me that I would be able to notice an improvement but it would be subtle and natural looking, which was exactly what I was hoping to achieve.”

“On the day of the treatment I arrived at the clinic and was greeted by the staff. I felt at ease because I knew that the doctor who would be carrying out my treatment was experienced and because I had seen him for my skin evaluation I didn’t need to explain everything all over again. The doctor knew already exactly how I wanted the results of the treatment to look.”

“I recommend Natura Skin Clinic to everyone. I am so pleased with the results of my treatment and everyone comments on how good I look. If you want to look and feel better without changing who you are, Natura Skin Clinic is the only place to go!”
