One of the natural effects of aging is the degradation of the skin around the eyes, resulting in loose, sagging skin that hides and ages the appearance of your eyes. There are various methods of rejuvenating the eyelids and producing a more youthful appearance, including blepharoplasty surgery. However, many of these options require partially-invasive surgery or uncomfortable injections that have to be repeated to achieve results. The Thermage systemallows you to regain your eyes' youthful brightness and vitality in a single, non-invasive treatment.
Thermage Eye Rejuvenation Procedure
The concept behind the Thermage is relatively simple, while the technology itself is very advanced. Essentially, Thermage works by heating the collagen-producing inner layers of skin tissue with radio frequency (RF) technology while cooling the upper layers of the skin for minimal damage. The deep heating effect tightens existing collagen while stimulating increased collagen production for continued improvement over time.
When used to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes, Thermage can effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift and tighten the skin of the eyelid and under the brow, decrease the "hooding" effect of sagging skin, and reduce sagging underneath the eye. All of these effects are designed to bring out your eyes' natural, youthful beauty without sagging, wrinkled skin hiding them.
Thermage—A Convenient, Safe Alternative to Surgery
While some eye rejuvenation procedures involve surgical incisions or potentially painful injections, the Thermage system is completely non-invasive. In addition, Thermage eye rejuvenation requires basically no downtime, making it a perfect choice for patients with an active, busy lifestyle. Most patients are able to resume normal activities the same day.
Thermage produces great results with a single treatment, and those results can last for years depending on your skin's level of damage and condition. While minor side effects are possible, including swelling and bruising, most patients see an immediate improvement in their skin's appearance that continues over the next few months. Thermage is also one of the only skin rejuvenation procedures that requires no special preparation or follow-up care.
If you would like to take years off the appearance of your eyes, reduce wrinkles, and reveal brighter, more vibrant eyes but are uncomfortable with surgery or injections, Thermage can be a quick and nearly painless option. With minimal downtime and optimal safety, Thermage is an important advancement in facial rejuvenation technology.
