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.

I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment.

Deborah Ledger

Deborah Ledger, 40, runs a business with her partner. The stressful nature of her job meant she began noticing fine lines and wrinkles appearing. She came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about non-surgical treatments.

“I wanted to have something done to ease these lines gradually”

“Running your own business is hard work, not to mention stressful. It’s important for me to look calm and collected at work but I began noticing fines lines and wrinkles developing on my face. I wanted to have something done to ease these lines gradually so I came to Natura Skin Clinic to see what my options were.”

“It was very important that whoever would be carrying out my procedure was fully qualified and experienced”

“I have always been slightly worried about needles so it was very important that whoever would be carrying out my procedure was fully qualified and experienced. I have known Dr. Xavier for over 10 years, and as far as im concerned there is no-one else I would allow to put needles in my face!”

“I went to Natura for my free skin evaluation and spoke to Dr. Xavier. He went through all the various treatments that were suitable for me and I decided to go ahead with a course of Botox. I like the fact the with Botox you can have your treatment gradually so you aren’t in any danger of ending up with a completely frozen face.”

“I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment.”

On the day of my treatment I wasn’t nervous at all. All my questions were answered during my skin evaluation and I actually felt quite excited about the prospect of being wrinkle free. During the treatment I barely felt a thing. The doctor explained to me each stage of the treatment and I felt completely at ease. It was a very relaxed and professional atmosphere throughout the procedure. I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment. I had my treatment and was back at home with the kettle on in the space of about 40 minutes!

“If someone asks me what the secret to my youthful appearance say Natura Skin Clinic!”

“The results of my treatment are fantastic. I feel more confident. Every woman that has Botox feels more confident when they have it. I recommend Natura Skin Clinic to everyone. If someone asks me what the secret to my youthful appearance say Natura Skin Clinic!”
