In this week’s Q&A, I’m talking about Thermage Eyes. The onset of ageing and the effects of sun damage can be more noticeable around the eyes where the skin is thinner and more delicate causing our eyes to droop and wrinkles start to appear. This can be a problem for many women and men in the 40 to 50 age category when they start to see first signs of fine lines, crepiness and hooding.
What is ‘Thermage Eyes’?
Thermage Eyes uses a radio frequency device which causes collagen remodelling and tightening at a deeper level. It is a 30-minute procedure, performed with a tiny treatment tip specifically designed for the eyes enabling us to treat the entire eye area right up to the lash line on both the upper and lower eyelids. Prior to treatment a transfer grid is applied to map out the area being treated. (This is removed after treatment).
How does Thermage work?
To protect the surface layers of skin and make the treatment more comfortable. Thermage begins by placing the treatment tip directly onto the already gridded skin. The skin is then cooled with cryogen and using the grid as a guide, the radiofrequency energy is then delivered deep into the skin, heating the targeted areas which stimulates collagen to remodel. The treatment finishes with a final delivery of cryogen to cool the epidermis.
Does Thermage hurt?
Many people find their procedure very comfortable because we use the latest Thermage CPT patented technology (Comfort Pulsed Technology). This uses a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue, combined with the cooling effects to protect the skin’s surface for patient comfort.
How soon will you notice results?
Some results can be visible immediately, but with this treatment the results continue to improve over time as your own natural collagen rebuilds and remodels. Usually results improve up to 6 months with long term results lasting upto a year or so.
What kind of results can I expect to see
Depending on the concerns of each patient the eyes will look brighter and lifted, with smoother, tighter skin around the eyes.
