Treating Your Eyes With Thermage | VIDA

Thermage Eye Treatment – Is it for You?

The skin around our eyes is super thin, actually it is one of the most sensitive and thinnest areas of the body. Given that condition, our eyelids and surrounding eye-area do not have the means to regenerate as fast as other parts. This is why as we age our eyelids tend to get loose or saggy and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. If you want to fix these issues and be able to go on about your day with no pain or discomfort, a Thermage eye lift is the perfect option for you!

What is Thermage for eyes?

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses laser radiofrequency technology to boost the skin’s production of collagen in a safe, progressive and natural way. After a Thermage under eye lift you can expect brighter looking eyes, smoother skin around the eyes and a reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines; all this without the need of recovery time.

How does a Thermage eye treatment work?

Underneath the upper layers of our skin we can find collagen strands. Collagen is in charge of keeping our skin firm and tight. As we age, our skin’s collagen production slows down, this is why we see a “hooding” effect in our upper eyelids or a tired appearance in our eyes. A Thermage for eye lift procedure uses radiofrequency to heat the deeper, collagen-rich areas of your skin. As the “old” collagen strands heat up and contract, the body naturally produces new ones; boosting your skin’s look.




Who should get a Thermage eye treatment?

This procedure is the perfect non-invasive alternative for women who want to postpone cosmetic surgery just a bit longer, have a mild “hooding” effect in their eyelids, or those who have soft fine lines. If your think, your problems are a bit more drastic, an eye or brow  lift or a Botox treatment might be better options for you. Remember that Thermage is not suitable for smokers, since tobacco will break down any new collagen production.

Who should administer a Thermage for neck treatment?

It is important to remember that you should only get a Thermage eye lift with a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, like Dr. de la Fuente. The skin around our eyes us very sensitive and thin, and although Thermage is an effective technology, it can damage the skin if it isn’t properly applied. Have a private consultation with your doctor to go over your skin’s condition and the results you can expect.

What can I expect during my Thermage for eyes procedure?

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment, so there will be no blood or open wounds in your skin during your appointment. Typically, a Thermage eye lift will last under an hour. Although this depends on every person’s resistance and skin. During your procedure you will feel short blasts of cold and heat. The cold shots are used to make the procedure more comfortable while the hot sensation means that collagen is at the right temperature for regeneration.

The treatment, while uncomfortable, is tolerable and your doctor will balance the discomfort with maximum results. Immediately after your Thermage for eyes appointment your skin will feel tighter and firmer, but the real magic begins three months after your appointment. As the new collagen strands develop, you will notice a dramatic reduction of the wrinkles above and below your eyes, a tighter eyelid and a more rested and “open” overall appearance.
