A non eyelid lift is performed when the upper or lower lids are sagging or drooping. It’s much like a traditional facelift except the area being treated is much smaller. The problem with this type of skin ablation procedure has mostly to do with the thinness of the skin. Even if fat deposits are removed from beneath the skin, the redraping of the skin doesn’t necessarily result in a lifted appearance. Thermage FLX may be able to help with this problem.
Thermage treatments are rapidly becoming a popular alternative to traditional blepharoplasty. This treatment method utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin of the eyelids. No surgery is involved, and recovery is quite rapid. We recommend the specialized Thermage FLX for tightening and lifting the eyelid skin, and we are more than happy to discuss the procedure in detail during a consultation.
Thermage And Radiofrequency Energy
Radiofrequency waves can be concentrated and targeted toward a very small surface area. Unlike a laser, which is a monochromatic light beam that is very powerful, radiofrequency waves penetrate through the skin much more gently. The energy is absorbed further down in the layers and even in the subcutaneous tissues. This energy absorption results in rapid collagen production. This, in turn, tightens the skin, giving a result is similar to a traditional eyelid lift even though no surgery is performed.
Most Thermage FLX treatment procedures take only about an hour to perform, and in most cases, no secondary treatment is needed. As stated, the results aren’t immediately noticeable, but the final results are long-lasting.
There’s also no at-home follow-up care regimen for you after the treatment. Basic skincare is all that is required for this type of non surgical eyelid lift is performed.
Benefits Of Thermage FLX
When performed on the eyelids, the device is calibrated specifically for your skin tone, the thickness of the eyelid skin, and the severity of any skin wrinkling. This ensures safe energy delivery without side effects. In fact, Thermage FLX is considered a non-invasive treatment.
There’s no skin ablation, so you don’t need to worry about potentially unfavorable results. The healing process and the increased production of collagen are natural occurrences, so it’s just the body healing itself.
