4 REQUIREMENTS OF OPTI-FOLD CLIENTS

​ 1. Have a compatible eyelid profile 

  • 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.
  • If you have single eyelids, you also have a relatively narrow face-shape.
  • Your eyelid profile is not angled too steeply.
  • Your skin is not too sensitive from the stimulation caused by removing medical tape.
  • You have uneven eyelids not caused by an eyelid muscle or nerve deficiency/injury.

​ 2. Ability to use Opti-fold properly 

  • You have good hand-eye coordination for applying cosmetic products.
  • You have the time to patiently learn how to put on and take off Opti-fold in the suggested way.
  • You are able to contact us frequently on the first week of tape use just so that we can make sure you know how to use Opti-fold.  Once we get an average sense that you know how to use the tapes, you won't have to keep contact that frequently.

​ 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 Opti-fold 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.
  • See the Opti-fold 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 OPTI-FOLD

​ 1. Get one hour of crease-time 

  • In your first two weeks of using Opti-fold, 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 Opti-fold 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 Opti-fold, 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 Opti-fold 

  • 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 Opti-fold.
  • Once you've reached your maximum number of days without tapes, only apply the Opti-fold tapes when your double eyelids get weak.
  • For general cases of uneven eyelids, it takes about 6-8 months for the effects to be permanent.
  • For general cases of single eyelids, it takes about 10-18 months for the effects to be permanent, in which one eye will reach the permanent state before the other.
