How can we treat them?
Hooded eyelids are a common facial characteristic where excess skin is present under your eyebrows. Due to this, the eyes appear smaller, which some people dislike and so opt for ways to reduce this feature. This hooding can also be caused by badly administered botulinum toxin (anti-wrinkle injections). When given in the incorrect dose this can result in the loss of muscle integrity in the forehead causing an eyebrow drop. Fortunately this will resolve once the toxin wears off, however this highlights the importance of why you should never go for the frozen look which anti-wrinkle treatments. Remember less is more! However people with genetically hooded eyelids could actually benefit from botulinum toxin. When following Dr Rosh's specially designed protocol, Botox can actually give a lifting affect - this is due to relaxation of the of the corrugator supercili which forms part of the lateral depressors.
Injecting dermal filler into the temple can also give a lifting affect. This is due to the increased volume in the area and is a popular treatment at Klnik. This can help with facial balancing and can also give a 'fox eye' effect.
Another alternative treatment is DUAL HI which is HIFU technology. It can be just administered on the forehead and upper eyelids. This can give a significant lift in one session, but a course of 3 in this area would be beneficial to give a more lasting lift.
