Hi everyone,

New poster here...I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about getting eyelid surgery, but I wanted to look into non surgical eye lifts before getting blepharoplasty. I haven't had much luck, but I did find one product called Eye Magic Eye Lift that fixes the problem of drooping eyelids. The web site is eyemagic.net if you want to check it out. I guess they use invisible strips and a gel applicator to fold back the sagging eyelid skin. The video they have and photos are pretty amazing...has anyone here tried it or anything like it? And is this something you would recommend? Im just worried about the side effects of surgery, plus its very expensive...

Thanks,

Dana

Hi Dana

I am a new user and have just come across your thread.

Over the years I have bought a huge range of eye creams to help my eye bags and sagging eyelids and finally gave in to surgery two years agoe this easter. It was the best thing I have ever done and although my eye bags were my original cause of concern, it was my eyelids that really surprised me. At last I can see them!!!!

Although I would say that surgery is a last resort and I was lucky enough to find a good surgeon who gave me a very natural look. There is not a day that goes by that I am not so happy I took the huge step of surgery.

Hope this helps and take care

Hi! I am new here, but I just want to chime in here about facial exercises.
If you google "Ageless If You Dare", you will see links to an exercise system. I have been doing facial exercises since August this year and see results already, but some ppl are saying it takes longer, so do be patient with yourself.
If you do them faithfully and make a habit of it, you will be surprised at what you can achieve without going under the knife.
Worth a try anyway before you spend the time and money, pain and downtime of surgery.

Hi all,

I got some email updates to this thread (thought it was dead!). I would like to give a little update on my situation...

After posting initially, I decided to pay the $24.95 and purchase the Eye Magic Eye Lift. This product has really worked wonders for me by lifting the "droop" above my eyes. It works slightly better on my right eye than my left eye, so depending on how I wake up in the morning, I'll apply only one strip or trim the left strip so it fits well. I have purchased Eye Magic 2 three or four times now since my original post...so I'm holding off on surgery for a while as long as Eye Magic keeps working for me!

Not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, but the Eye Magic web site is EyeMagic.net for anyone who has eyelid drooping and is looking for a non-surgical product to help

Thermage is a huge waste of money...............does not do a thing. A bit painful too. Was told to RE-DO it "for a discount" but really nothing X 2 = nothing.

Hello-So I guess eyelid droop is just part of the aging process. Does anyone know what causes one to just out of the blue start getting fluid in the eyelids? Sometimes I wake up and my eyelids are so full of fluid I can hardly see out of them, sometimes it is just one, and some mornings all is well. I have tried to observe if it could be what I eat in the evening, fluid consumption, salt intake you name it--but I can't relate much other than if I eat something salty that whole day--such as chips. Any ideas? Thanks Lou Ann53
