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.

Heather Tinker

Heather Tinker, came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about treating unwanted veins on her face.

“I became so aware of them that I started to feel less confident.”

“I was doing my make up one day and I noticed some veins on my face. I did my best with make up to hide them but I became so aware of them that I started to feel less confident. I knew about Natura Skin Clinic because I have known the Doctor for many years so i knew it would be somewhere I could trust to help me rid me of these veins. ”

“I felt so much better knowing that other people my age sometimes develop this problem.”

“I did some research and realised I needed laser treatment to remove these veins. I went along to the clinic to find out more. The doctor told me that this was a common problem and easily treated. I felt so much better knowing that other people my age sometimes develop this problem. I booked a course of face vein treatments and was excited to finally be closer to getting rid of them.”

“Its really had a positive impact not only on my face, but on how I feel about myself.”

“The treatment was completely painless. I was given some cream to numb the area and then the doctor used the laser on the veins. After a couple of treatments they had disappeared completely. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Natura Skin Clinic has given me my confidence back and I no longer worry about people noticing veins on my face. It’s really had a positive impact not only on my face, but on how I feel about myself.”
