Because of this, the eyebrows lower (even) more, eye bags become more prominent, and the area becomes somewhat messy. We can nicely restore this volume loss by placing volume back at the shortage points.
With the C–eyelift, we offer your eye region the form that represents a youthful appearance. The eye region is not so much regarded as distinct parts, but rather as a whole. The below treatments of separate areas often negatively influence other aspects of the eye region.
- Do the bags under your eyes bother you?
If this is the case, the bags under the eyes can get operated, or fillers can be placed under the eyes to lessen the eye bags
Disadvantage: only placing volume beneath the eyes increases the chance of swelling
- Do crow’s feet bother you?
A Botox injection can help
Disadvantage: the bags under the eyes worsen when using Botox in the crow’s feet
- Do you have low-hanging eyebrows?
Take Botox for a eyebrow lift, or consider a surgical eyebrow lift
Disadvantage: a eyebrow lift with Botox worsens the lines on the forehead
- Heb je last van overhangende oogleden?
Take a surgical blepharoplasty
Disadvantage: due to a blepharoplasty, the skin on the cheeks loses its curving
How does a C-eyelift work?
In the C-eyelift, we look at the aging of the entire eye region, and we improve it as a whole. In the C–eyelift, we restore the volume loss as a whole by placing small amounts of volume in the exact places where they were lost. The C–eyelift isn’t the solution for all indications surrounding the eyes, but this treatment does show us very good and natural results.
The C of Chantal indicates the area where we execute the treatment, which looks like a tilted horseshoe: above, next to, and below the eyes.
After a C-eyelift, you can expect the following improvements:
- Eyebrow lift
- Less bags and dark circles under the eyes
- Less fine lines under the eyes
- Less crow’s feet and forehead lines
- A more open view
The first consult is intended to fit your wishes, expectations, and our treatment possibilities to each other. We also chart your face during this consult, in which your appearance, expression, and facial characteristics mainly determine the C-eyelift.
During this consult we chart your face and we determine if the C-eyelift is the best treatment for you. We discuss your situation and your wishes by means of our 3D-face analysis and the MD Codes™.
Because of this, we can make the C-eyelift treatment transparent and perfectly fit to your individual wishes. According to the principle of the whole face approach, we create a treatment plan together with you, and we figure out how to obtain the best results. We will ask you about your medical background, previous treatments, and possible medicine use. With this, we exclude all possible risks and make sure that you receive safe help. The consult is free of costs and without obligation.
The C-eyelift treatment
Once we have decided what the C-eyelift will look like, we will apply a local anaesthesia (when you want this). Then, the doctor places the volume on the right locations, just beneath the skin. This way the eye region will recover and rejuvenate, and your eyes will make a spectacular comeback.
In the C-eyelift, we start from the temples and the cheekbones. Because we build up the treatment in small steps, you will hardly suffer from any side effects and the result will build up highly natural. Comfortably experiencing the treatment has priority. After the treatment, the skin can get massaged and/or cooled with a cold pack. The C–eyelift will take 15 minutes to half an hour, depending on the treatment plan that we have created with you during the consult.
After the treatment
The first result of the C–eyelift is already visible directly after the treatment. Because the hyaluronic acid needs 4 to 6 weeks in order to settle well. However, you do have to wait for the end result for a while. Patience truly is a virtue here.
As opposed to a surgical blepharoplasty, virtually no secondary effects come with the C–eyelift. Swellings or little bruises may develop after treatment. We directly take care of these with cooling compresses that directly set the recovery process into motion. In case swellings or bruises develop, these will naturally disappear. We advise you to avoid direct sunlight on your skin when one of these two side effects shows up.
Experience with the C-eyelift
”Dark circles and bags under the eyes made me appear jaded. When I saw myself in the mirror, I instantly felt a couple of years older. I underwent a C-eyelift with fillers at Kliniek Dokter Frodo and now I have been looking rested and vital again for a long time. I can recommend it to anyone.”
What fillers does Kliniek Dokter Frodo use?
Restylane and Juvéderm. The safest and most reliable modern fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally occurring in the body that hydrates our skin and adds volume to it. Several simple injections beneath the surface of the skin help filling and reducing lines and wrinkles in the face and restoring volume. Restylane and Juvéderm are the most frequently used hyaluronic acid fillers in the world. Studies have shown their safeness and efficiency. Worldwide, over 20 million treatments have been executed with them. It has a long-lasting result, but the result isn’t permanent.
How long does a filler treatment take?
In general, the treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. Before the treatment, you also need to reserve time for discussing what you hope to achieve with your doctor. The effect is almost immediately visible. There is no recovery time and you will quickly be satisfied with the results.
What are the most important risks and secondary effects of a filler treatment?
Mild reactions can occur after a treatment with hyaluronic acid. The most occurring secondary effects are redness, mild swelling, itching, bruising, pain, and sensitivity. The reactions are often mild and disappear shortly after the treatment.
Do I have to do/know something before the start of the treatment?
We advise you not to take aspirin or other painkillers during the few days before your treatment (unless you need them for a chronic medical disease). Avoiding these medicines decreases the risk of hematomas during the injection.
Do I receive guidance?
Are you afraid of needles and do you still want to undergo a filler treatment? In that case, we will offer you extra guidance and make sure that you completely feel at ease. With the right means, we can help you go through the treatment without having to experience any pain or fear.
Is the treatment safe?
Absolutely, the C-eyelift treatment is executed in small steps and we use the fillers Restylane and Juvéderm for this eyelift. These fillers exist of the body’s own substance hyaluronic acid to which the body virtually does not respond. An allergic reaction is thus highly unlikely. If needed, the filler can be dissolved.
For how long will the result remain?
Hyaluronic acid decomposes after 1.5 to 2 years. Great individual differences do occur, however, and it usually remains for much longer (3 to 5 years). Meanwhile, the aging of the face naturally proceeds (it loses more volume). The result of the C-eyelift may therefore slightly decline after 1.5 years. The filler will still be there, but in order to maintain the result you may need a touch-up. Kliniek Dokter Frodo advises you not to wait until this happens, but to come back before everything has worn off. This way, you prevent the yo-yo effect from occurring.
Why shouldn't you use permanent fillers?
Permanent fillers consist of substances that do not naturally appear in the body, and are also not decomposed by the body. Possible risks (that can also show up after years) are infections, hard bulges, and (excessive) capsular contraction around the injected filler. If the skin furtherly ages, or for example, after heavy variations in weight, the injected substance may appear as bulges beneath the skin. The Dutch Public Health Inspection advises not to use permanent fillers.
What happens if I'm not satisfied?
If you are unexpectedly not satisfied with the result, we can dissolve the hyaluronic acid problem-free, without secondary effects.
