While dermal fillers can go a long way in helping to curb crow’s feet and wrinkles, they are not as effective at reducing the unsightly crepe-like skin that begins to form in the lower lids as a result of the aging process and exposure to sun damage. A skin pinch is a cosmetic procedure that can help smooth away excess skin while preserving the delicacy of the under-eye area. Skin pinch is often performed under local anesthesia to ensure each patient is completely comfortable during their procedure. The process typically takes around 45 minutes to perform. The sagging skin is pinched with a forcep, and then cut away using an ultra-sharp, refined scissor. This tiny incision is then closed with razor-thin, dissolvable sutures. Skin pinch can be combined exceptionally well with a blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery.
