Pretarsal Hypertrophy eyebag Treatment Singapore

Pretarsal hypertrphy is a rare condition in which the pretarsal muscles of the eyelid become enlarged. This can cause the eyelid to appear wrinkled and enlarged, and may also lead to Eyelid ptosis (drooping). The exact cause of Pretarsal hypertrophy is unknown, but it is thought to be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Singapore is a country that is known for its humid climate. The high humidity levels in Singapore can cause pretarsal hypertrophy, which is the enlargement of the pretarsal glands. These glands are located in the eyelids and help to secrete oil that lubricates the eyes. When the humidity levels are high, the glands produce more oil than usual, causing the eyelids to swell. In some cases, the enlargement can be so severe that it interferes with vision.

There are two main types of Pretarsal hypertrophy:

Primary Pretarsal hypertrophy

Primary Pretarsal hypertrophy is believed to be caused by an underlying genetic predisposition.

Secondary Pretarsal hypertrophy

Secondary Pretarsal hypertrophy is typically the result of another condition, such as thyroid disease or diabetes.

Pretarsal Hypertrophy Treatment Options

A patient considering treatment for pretarsal hypertrophy may want to consider the invasiveness of the treatment, the results that can be expected, and the frequency of follow-up treatments. Here at Cienna Aesthetics, treatment for pre tarsal hypertrophy typically involves Botulinum Toxin injections or threads. These injections works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause the bulging, while threads work by physically lifting the skin. Both treatments are temporary, and results typically last for four to six months. However, Botulinum Toxin injections may require additional treatments over time as the muscles return to their original state, while threads may need to be replaced every few years. Ultimately, the best treatment for pretarsal hypertrophy will depend on the individual's goals and preferences.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is the only ‘Gold standard” treatment to relax muscles that causes hypertrophy.
