Hooded Eyelids

Hooded Eyelids

Condition Overview

What Are Hooded Eyelids?

Hooded eyelids refer to a condition where excess skin folds down from the brow bone and partially covers the upper eyelids, often obscuring the natural crease. This aesthetic concern can impact the appearance of the eyes and face, creating a heavier, drooping look.

Why Do I Have Hooded Eyelids?

The primary cause of hooded eyelids is typically associated with the ageing process. As individuals age, the skin loses its elasticity, and the supportive structures around the eyes weaken. This leads to the gradual descent of the upper eyelid skin, resulting in the characteristic hooded appearance. While ageing is the primary factor, genetic predisposition can also play a role in determining the likelihood of developing hooded eyelids.

What Impact Can Hooded Eyelids Have?

The impact of hooded eyelids on appearance is notable. Individuals with this condition may experience a reduction in the visible eyelid space, making the eyes appear smaller and potentially conveying a tired or aged appearance. Additionally, applying eye makeup can be challenging, as the excess skin may obscure the eyelid and limit the space for eyeshadow or eyeliner application.

Beyond the aesthetic concerns, severe cases of hooded eyelids can affect peripheral vision, as the sagging skin encroaches on the upper field of vision. This functional aspect underscores the potential impact on daily activities and highlights the importance of addressing hooded eyelids not only for cosmetic reasons but also for overall visual comfort.

Can I Approach This Concern Non-surgically?

Non-surgical interventions are available at novo Skin Clinics to address hooded eyelids. These options include a non-surgical facelift, which uses hyaluronic-based dermal fillers in the temples to lift the eyebrow arch, or techniques that involve the application of anti-wrinkle injections to modestly elevate the eyebrows and open the eyes (referred to as an ‘eyebrow lift’). Alternatively, the PDO thread lift can provide full facial rejuvenation, including the upper face and particularly the area around the eyes.

Our practitioners consult with patients, helping them to understand the causes and available interventions, empowering individuals to make informed decisions about addressing hooded eyelids and achieving a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
