The effects of age are usually most noticeable around the eyes where our skin is delicate and thin. As skin loses elasticity as we age, it droops and wrinkles to create eye bags and hooding that can make us look tired and older.
Thermage® Eyes is the only procedure clinically proven to help smooth and tighten skin and decrease wrinkles, lines and hooding in the eye area with long-lasting results – without surgery or injections, and little to no downtime. Eyes look brighter, more lifted and less tired, and under eye bags are reduced.

Thermage Eyes is unique and highly advanced RF technology that is complementary to Thermage Face. This radiofrequency technology naturally and three-dimensionally contracts the collagen in the skin. Thermage appeals to many celebrities because it creates a refreshed, and rejuvenated and overall younger appearance to the skin without altering your looks.
A smooth, flat-tip handpiece safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of loose and wrinkled skin around the upper and lower eyelids. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps skin firmed, toned and therefore youthful. As you get older, collagen loses strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward.
The heat helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen over time. It helps smooth and tighten wrinkled and crepey skin around the eyes and on the eyelids to decrease wrinkles, lines and hooding. The result is eyes that appear open and alert.
Thermage Eyes is a non-invasive treatment for tired looking eyes, skin over hooded eyes, and wrinkles around the eyes (known as rhytids). It is suitable for:
As with all Thermage procedures – Thermage Body and Thermage Face – Thermage Eyes helps to improve skin tone and texture while tightening and contouring skin for an overall refreshed appearance.
Thermage can be used with many other cosmetic procedures such as soft-tissue fillers, laser skin resurfacing or even anti-wrinkle injections.
For best results, please discuss your past procedures and current expectations with your medical practitioner during your consultation.
Some immediate results are usually visible and improve over time in the course of your body’s natural collagen rebuilding process. For most patients, measurable tightening and contouring gradually continue for six months following a single treatment session.
Unlike many other procedures requiring four or more sessions, the Thermage skin tightening for eyelids procedure delivers results in a single treatment for most patients. The effects of Thermage Eyes usually last for years but this does depend on your age as well as the condition and quality of your skin.
We will explain everything in great detail to make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.

Thermage treatments for eyes take approximately 45 minutes.
Any treatment involving the eye area must be undertaken by a qualified medical practitioner. Because Thermage treats targeted problem areas, the results are focused and effective.
Thermage radiofrequency treatment was first used as a non-invasive wrinkle treatment over ten years ago and has been used in over 1 million treatments worldwide to date with an excellent safety record.
If you have received eye surgery or laser treatment to the eye, or have this planned, please advise us.
There is no downtime: you can wear make-up after treatment and resume your normal activities that same day.
Many people find their procedure at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic more comfortable than expected because we use the latest Thermage CPT technology. This uses a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue and cooling effects to protect the skin’s surface and deliver better patient comfort.
Each time the Thermage treatment device touches your skin, you’ll feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a positive sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, while the cooling sensation protects the surface of your skin.
Throughout the procedure, your practitioner will ask if you are fine with the level of heat sensation to make sure you feel comfortable while achieving the very best results for you.
