Hooded eyes refer to an excess of skin which folds down from the brow bone to the eyelash line. It is quite common to have hooded eyes from birth. The skin droops over the crease in the eye, making the eyelid appear to be smaller.
As we age, excess skin above the upper eyelids can overhang, creating a hooded eye. Dermatochalasis is a condition where skin droops down from the upper eyelid over the eye. Ptosis is similar, but the skin comes from the edge of the upper eyelid.
Surgical, and, more recently, non-surgical treatments for hooded eye are gaining popularity. It’s non-surgical treatments for the correction of hooded eyes that we can provide here at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
