Are you tired of dealing with eye bags, feeling like they make you look older and affect your self-confidence? Guess what? You don’t have to live with them!

What is Thermage Eye Treatment?

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency technology to target the collagen matrix in the skin. This technology delivers a controlled amount of heat energy deep into the skin, triggering a natural healing process that leads to collagen production and remodelling. This results in tighter, smoother skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of eye bags and other ageing signs.

How does it work?

The Thermage device uses patented monopolar radiofrequency technology to penetrate precise depths in the skin. The controlled heat energy stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that gives our skin its strength and elasticity. As we age, our collagen levels decrease, leading to sagging and wrinkled skin. By boosting collagen production, Thermage helps to tighten and firm the skin around the eyes.

Thermage is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate signs of ageing around their eyes, including wrinkles, crow’s feet, under eye bags, and droopy upper eyelids. It’s a safe and effective treatment option for all skin types and tones. If you’re unsure if Thermage is right for you, don’t worry! Consult with a medical professional to assess your specific needs and determine the best course of action for you.

What are the Benefits of Thermage for Eye Area?

  1. Non-invasive: Thermage offers a non-surgical alternative, eliminating the need for incisions or injections. This means no scarring or downtime, just a straightforward and hassle-free treatment for your eye area.
  2. Quick and convenient: With a procedure duration of only 30-45 minutes, Thermage is perfectly suited for busy individuals. Plus, since there is no required downtime, you can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment.
  3. Long-lasting results: Thermage stimulates collagen production, which continues for up to six months post-procedure. This translates to results that can endure for years, providing a cost-effective solution in the long run. 

Are there any Side Effects?

Thermage is a safe and well-tolerated procedure, with minimal side effects. Some individuals may experience mild redness or swelling immediately after the treatment, which typically subsides within a few hours. 

Rarely, some patients may experience temporary numbness or tingling in the treated area, but this usually resolves within a few days. It is essential to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional before undergoing any treatment to ensure its safety and suitability for your specific needs.

What to Expect During and After the Treatment?

Now, let’s talk about what happens during a Thermage treatment session. First, we start by cleansing the skin around your eyes and applying a numbing cream to ensure comfort during the procedure. Then, the handheld device will be used to deliver controlled heat energy to the target areas around your eyes.

The device has a cooling mechanism that helps to keep the skin comfortable while delivering heat energy deep into the layers of your skin. This stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer and smoother skin.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort or redness in the treated area, which can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but avoid strenuous exercise and excessive heat exposure for the first 24 hours.
