Sagging eyelids, much like graying hair and an ever-growing cache of fond memories, is an unavoidable aspect of growing older. In most cases, sagging eyelids – “ptosis” as it is clinically known – can be cured by a simple surgery that will tighten the eyelids muscle, or even the muscle of the forehead. For preventative measures and even treatment for early signs of dropping eyelids, you may want to try the AminoGenesis E.Y.E. Control Lid Lifting and Dark Circle Serum. In a 60-day trial, subjects using our E.Y.E Control product on average saw a 61% improvement in the appearance of sagging eyelids and 34% improvement in terms of the severity of wrinkles around the eyes. Even better, most test subjects saw a 256% increase in collagen production and a 229% increase in elastin production!

What Causes Eyelids to Sag?
Sagging eyelids, can be caused by aging, muscle weakness, trauma, or even neurological damage. The levator muscle allows the eyelid to lift and stretch across our eye, but as we age it gradually becomes worn out and less elastic, thus leading it to droop and impair vision. Eye surgeries such as cataract removal and LASIK may also weaken or damage the levator muscle, leading to a sagging lid (American Society of Opthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) However, excessive unprotected exposure to the sun, exposure to tobacco smoke, and skin glycation have also been linked to sagging skin on the body, and may very well contribute to sagging eyelids ( International Journal of Molecular Sciences, Journal of Investigative Dermatology, FutureDerm). In most cases, sagging eyelids can be treated by a surgery that will tighten the eyelid muscle and remove excess fat and skin, or by getting injectable fillers (Mayo Clinic, Prevention). For a more cost-effective and preventative step, you may wish to consider the AminoGenesis E.Y.E. Control Lid Lifting and Dark Circle Serum.
How Can AminoGenesis E.Y.E. Control Help?
Our E.Y.E Control was formulated with innovative and scientifically-backed ingredients to ensure the quickest and longest-lasting improvement for sagging eyelids.
Albizia julibrissin, known also by the monikers Silk Tree and Mimosa of Constantinople, is a multifunctional plant extract the combats both glycation and signs of aging. Albizia julibrissin combats under eye circles by inhibiting melanin production, whereas its ability to inhibit metallo proteinases and scavenge free radicals keeps skin’s collagen matrices strong and intact. As if the extract wasn’t superb enough, albizia julibrisin is also known to reverse the effects of glycation on the skin, whereas its extract – julibroside – is known for its role as an anti-tumor agent (U.S. Patent WO 2013046137A2, Bioorganic Medical and Chemistry Letters)
Darutoside does not receive proper recognition. This extract of siegesbeckia orientalis plant the has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks, act as an anti-inflammatory agent, and even promote collagen synthesis crucial for wound healing and tissue regeneration, leading skin to be more elastic and supple (Cosmetics and Toiletries, UKAA) . Research has shown that darutoside is generally best in concentrations of 1% to 1.5%, and is generally will not cause any adverse reactions for most skin types.
We’ve also included Diisostearyl Dimer Dilinoleate (DDD) in our E.Y.E.Control formulation, which is safe up to concentrations of 53%, what truly makes it amazing is how it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. DDD is a large molecule that binds to your facial oils and creates a barrier against water loss on the skin, allowing skin to appear better hydrated and more supple to the touch (International Journal of Toxicology, Cosmetics Info )
Sagging skin, whether on the face or body, is a condition that all of us will have to encounter as we age. Fortunately, the AminoGenesis E.Y.E. Control Lid Lifting and Dark Circle Serum was formulated to serve as a cost-effective and immensely successful alternative to surgery. In a 60 day trial study, subjects using E.Y.E. Control reported 61 E.Y.E Control product on average saw a 61% improvement in the appearance of sagging eyelids and 34% improvement in the severity of wrinkles around the eyes. Most subjects also saw over 200% increase in elastin and collagen production, ensuring that subjects’ eyelids appeared noticeably more healthy and firm.
