4 CLIENT REQUIREMENTS

​ 1. Have a compatible eyelid profile 

  • You have one eye that is a double-lid and the other a mono-lid.
  • You have one eye that is a double-lid and the other has multiple creases.
  • You have one eye that is a double-lid and the other is a shallow, incomplete or broken double-lid.
  • You have signs of excess upper eyelid skin bunching up.
  • When you flex your eyelids, a shallow crease can form.
  • When you trace a crease-line on your upper eyelid, the skin looks like it can fold there naturally.
  • When you rub your eyes, a double eyelid can momentarily form.
  • Your eyelid profile is not angled too steeply.
  • Your eyelid skin is not too sensitive from the use of medical tape.
  • You have uneven eyelids not caused by an eyelid muscle or nerve deficiency/injury.
  • Both left and right eyelids are required to be equally strong.  If this is not the case, please contact us on the FORUMS page before purchasing.

​ 2. Ability to use Optifold properly 

  • You have good hand-eye coordination for applying cosmetic products.
  • You are attentive to detail when observing the eyelid's micro-creases.

​ 3. Understand daily factors that affect your skin 

  • Rubbing the eyes will interfere with the forming double eyelids (FDEs).
  • Exposing your eyelids to soapy water, sweat, or tears will weaken the FDEs by puffy skin.
  • Looking down for too long in the morning will weaken the FDEs, ie: using the computer or phone.
  • Eating too much salty foods or drinking alcohol before sleeping will cause puffy eyelids.
  • Not blinking your eyes enough, when studying or watching a movie, will cause your eyelids to swell.
  • Sleeping less than 7 hours will cause your eyelids to swell excessively in the morning.
  • Being on your back for 8+ hours (sleeping too much) will allow excess water to be retained in the facial tissues, causing swelling.

​ 4. Good work ethic with the 3 eyelid exercises 

  • After removing the Optifold tapes, you will perform 20~30 repetitions of the tracing the crease-line exercise.
  • After the morning tracing the crease-line exercise, you will perform 3 minutes of the holding the crease-line exercise.
  • Still in the morning and up until noon, to help the ideal crease warm up, perform the looking up eyelid crease exercise by keeping your visual gaze above eye-level without squinting.
  • See the Instructions for more details about the eyelid exercises.
  • You will make sure to provide your eyelid skin with the healthiest conditions for FDEs, by making time for adequate rest and proper nutrition.  A lifestyle that already requires improvements to your general heath will provide a challenge for your double eyelids to form.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH OPTIFOLD

​ 1. Get one hour of crease-time 

  • In your first two weeks of using Optifold, after removing the tapes, your double eyelids should be able to last 1 hour.

​ 2. Get eight hours of crease-time 

  • Near the end of your first month of Optifold use, your double eyelids should be able to last 8-10 hours per day.

​ 3. Pass the 2-hour nap test 

  • Within 4 months of using Optifold, if your work ethic is good with doing the eyelid exercises, your double eyelids should be able to easily last all day 90% of the time.
  • After getting a 90% success rate, you will be testing if your double eyelids can survive the 2-hour nap test.
  • The 2-hour nap test requires that you take a nap without tapes for 2 hours, and then seeing if your double eyelids can survive with or without additional eyelid exercises upon waking up.
  • If you can't pass the 2-hour test, try the 1-hour nap test and work more diligently with your eyelid exercises.

​ 4. Challenge your double eyelids 

  • After passing the 2-hour nap test, take appraisal of your progress by submitting your double eyelids to adverse conditions and seeing if you can still get all day results.
  • Adverse conditions examples:  not having adequate sleep, eating salty foods or drinking alcohol before sleeping, allowing sweat or soap to soak the eyelid skin, etc.  Basically anything that usually can compromise your results, do those things and see if your double eyelids can still survive.

​ 5. Go without tapes for one night 

  • If everything is going as planned by the 5th-6th month, your next aim is to see if your double eyelids can survive a full night's sleep.  Upon waking up, you are still required to do the tracing and holding the crease-line exercises.
  • If your double eyelids can survive without the exercises or with a minimum use of the exercises, it indicates an even more advanced stage of progress.

​ 6. Go without tapes for two nights 

  • After going without tapes for one night, use tapes again for a minimum of 2 days straight, then see if your double eyelids can survive for two nights in a row.  Upon waking up, you are still required to do the tracing and holding the crease-line exercises.
  • If your double eyelids can survive without the exercises or with a minimum use of the exercises, it indicates an even more advanced stage of progress.

​ 7. Gradually wean off from using Optifold 

  • After successfully going without tapes for 2 nights in a row, test to see the maximum number of days your double eyelids can survive without using Optifold.
  • Once you've reached your maximum number of days without tapes, only apply the Optifold tapes when your double eyelids get weak.
