Hooded Eyelids, What Are They?

‘Hooded eyelids’ are a frequent facial feature characterised by the presence of extra skin on one or both eyes, just under the brows. Extra skin can be seen folding downwards from the brow bone to the lash line. As a result, the eyes appear smaller than usual. Some patients may also have difficulty applying makeup, such as eye shadow. The form of your eyes and eyelids, like attached earlobes or hair colour, is one of the numerous distinguishable inherited facial traits. With growing age, the condition becomes more noticeable.

What Causes Hooded Eyelids?

Age – As we become older, our skin loses elasticity and becomes more slack, resulting in the appearance of excess skin on the eyelid. Our brow position tends to decline as we age, which might result in hooded eyes or make existing hooded eyes appear more prominent.

Hooded eyes or the potential to develop hooded eyes are a genetic trait; if one or both parents have hooded eyes, you are more likely to develop this attribute.

Medical Causes – Incorrectly administered Botox injections can cause the eye brow to droop and produce the appearance of hooded eyes. In rare situations, medical disorders can provide the appearance of hooded eyes; this is due to a droopy eyelid, known as ptosis, and should be investigated by your doctor.

How To Fix Hooded Eyelids

You can choose between surgical (cutting away excess skin on the lid – blethoplasty) and nonsurgical treatment, plasma pen to burn away excess skin on the lid. Yes, I did say burn away, but don’t worry, it’s not as painfull as it sounds as we’re only touching the very top most layers of your skin.

Elite Aesthetics specialises in non-surgical treatments that provides Plexr (medical plasma pen treatment), which is an effective therapy for hooded eyes. It reduces and tightens upper eyelid skin, providing a non-surgical eye lift without the need for hooded eye surgery.

Treatment for hooded eyes at Elite Aesthetics Clinic

Plexr – is one of the quickest and safest treatment options for removing eyelid skin and treating hooded eyes. Our in-clinic specialists administer this 30-minute treatment to minimise heavy, hooded brows and tighten the skin on the top and bottom eyelids. It is an excellent hooded eye treatment and a viable alternative to hooded eye surgery. We include a mineral foundation as part of your treatment to cover any areas you may wish to hide post treatment.

Benefits of Hooded Eyelids Treatment

The following are some of the benefits of our plasma pen hooded eyelid treatment:

  • A very effective method for removing excess skin or tightening the skin to cure flaws such as deep wrinkles and scars
  • There is no skin incision with a non-surgical eye lift
  • Just 30 minutes for the treatment
  • Extremely little risk
  • There is little downtime
  • Long lasting

Is a non-surgical eye lift  right for me?

Prior to your treatment, we will invite you to meet with one of our in-clinic doctors to examine your appropriateness. Please note that this treatment is not advisable for darker skin types due to the risk of hyperpigmentation and it is not suitable if you have a history or keloid scarring.

Who Will Perform The  Non-Surgical Eye Lid Lift Treatment?

All plasma Pen Plexr treatments will be performed by our highly experienced doctors – While it is a non-invasive alternative to upper eyelid surgery, it is critical that you obtain the services of an expert to execute this procedure. At Elite Aesthetics this treatment is conducted only by our in clinic doctors.

Frequently Asked Questions

The actual treatment takes no more than 15-20 minutes, and it is generally a painful but well tolerated procedure. We will numb the areas being treated to minimise any discomfort.

A local anaesthetic cream is given 30 minutes before to treatment to numb the eyelid. Some patients experience a minor tingling/burning sensation, although it is normally well tolerated with pain relievers and numbing lotion.

How many sessions are required for nonsurgical eye lift treatment?

First and foremost, you will have a Plexr – plasma pen consultation with one of our doctors who specialises in this treatment. This allows us to assess your appropriateness for therapy while also providing you with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss your therapeutic goals.

You will be in clinic for approximately one hour on the day of your treatment.

You will then be given aftercare instructions and scheduled for your next treatment in 4-6 weeks should you require it.

Where Can I Have Hooded Eye Treatment?

Plexr treatment is available at Elite Aesthetics in Greenhithe, Kent. Just 20 minutes from St Pancras Station.

Why is Plexr So Popular?

According to recent data, people no longer want to go under the knife because of the perceived risk of anaesthesia, the worry of permanent after effects from surgery, and the prolonged downtime. With non-surgical alternatives now available and producing good results, demand for surgical procedures has decreased in the UK over the previous decade, while demand for non-surgical therapies has surged considerably.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
