Who Is It For
With aging comes wrinkling and sagging of the eyelid skin. Eyelid Thermage is an FDA approved procedure that tightens eyelid skin, smoothes the texture of the eyelids, and deceases eyelid hooding without surgery or injections. Patients benefit from a single treatment that has no downtime, bruising, or swelling. Ideal candidates for the Eyelid Thermage have mild to moderate eyelid laxity. Patients with greater laxity should be treated with alternative modalities.
In many physician offices, a nurse performs this procedure. However in our office, only board certified physicians perform the procedure.
How It Works
The treatment tip simultaneously heats and cools the skin. It emits radio frequency energy to heat the collagen in the deeper skin layers while simultaneously protecting the top layers of the skin with a cooling spray. The heating action causes the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to tighten immediately. In addition, it stimulates new collagen production, which further enhances the result.
There is no downtime with the Eyelid Thermage procedure, and patients can resume all of their normal activities immediately after leaving the office.
Patients who have had eyelid Thermage report that their eyelid sagging is improved and both the upper and lower eyelids are tighter. The eyes look brighter, the eyes appear more open, and under-eye bags are reduced. In addition, the improved smoothness of the skin makes it easier to apply eye make-up. Patients have reported only minimal if any discomfort during the procedure.
Eyelid Thermage is a good procedure to cosmetically enhance the eyelid tissues in patients who have mild to moderate eyelid laxity. Patients who would like to improve the appearance of their eyelids without surgery are invited to make an appointment for a consultation with either Dr. Amerian or Dr. Anterasian.
