Thermage for Eyes

What is Thermage? Thermage is a non-surgical treatment used to stimulate collagen and tighten loose skin.  Thermage is a non-invasive treatment that is used to promote healthy collagen, which leads to tightening of sagging skin and improvement of texture on the treated area. What areas on the body can be treated with Thermage? Thermage is a versatile treatment that can be used on many areas of the body.  Thermage is patient-specific, meaning that it is not a “one fits all” type of treatment.  Depending on where you need tightening and improvement of texture, Thermage may be appropriate for different areas on you than someone else.  The most commonly treated areas are the eyelids, jawline, neck, abdomen and upper arms. How does Thermage work? Thermage used monopolar radiofrequency energy to stimulate the turnover of your own collagen.  Healthier collagen results in tighten, smoother skin.  There is some immediate collagen production, but significant results take 2-4 months to develop.  This is the time that it takes your own body to produce the new, healthier collagen.  Thermage requires only one treatment and lasts for years, because your own skin is becoming healthier. What can Thermage do for the eyes? Thermage for the eyes can be particularly dramatic.  One treatment, taking approximately an hour, can take years off of your eyes.  Ptosis, or “hooding” and “drooping”, of the eyelids can be corrected with Thermage for eyes.  The texture of wrinkled, delicate, or puffy skin around the areas can also be improved upon with Thermage for eyes. What should I expect during my Thermage for Eyes treatment? When you arrive for your Thermage for eyes treatment, we will first clean the skin and apply a temporary ink grid to the eyelids.  This grid will be removed prior to leaving the office.  We will then insert one eye shield, using a numbing eye drop to avoid discomfort.  Only one eye will be shielded at a time during the treatment.  The Thermage treatment itself takes approximately 45 minutes.  During this time, you will feel a series of pulses over the eyelids.  Each pulse feels both cool and warm, with a slight vibration during the delivery of heat.  The vibration helps to diminish any discomfort associated with the radiofrequency heat.  There is no downtime after the treatment.  You will look and feel fine upon leaving the office. How long does it take to see the results from Thermage? Collagen stimulation and renewal takes 2-4 months to be fully realized.  Most patients begin to see improvement around 2 months after their treatment and will continue to see improvement gradually for up to 6 months.  Improvement lasts for many years after the Thermage treatment. How much does Thermage for Eyes cost? The cost of Thermage is $3000.  Thermage for Eyes requires only one treatment and improvement lasts for many years.  All Thermage for Eyes treatments are performed at Schweiger Dermatology in New York City.
