What is Eyelid Rejuvenation Like?
Your Thermage® treatment may take up to 90 minutes to complete, during which time your ZENA Medical specialist will move the laser methodically over your skin to direct the RF energy.
If you’re having an eyelid lift, your treatment is performed in our offices and takes under 2 hours to complete. Dr. Karen Leong will administer local anesthesia and ensure that you’re comfortable. Then, with meticulous techniques, Dr. Leong removes excess skin and trims away fatty tissues that contribute to puffiness, hooding, or under-eye bags. You’ll be able to recover comfortably at home.
Is There Any Downtime with Eyelid Rejuvenation?
With Thermage®, you may experience mild side effects, such as redness or swelling, but these will not impede your regular schedule.
With an eyelid lift, you can expect swelling and bruising to develop and last several days. Most patients return to work within 1 week of their procedure. You may return to full activities, including strenuous exercise, around 4 weeks.
What Results Can I Expect?
The results from an eyelid lift are immediate, and after the swelling subsides the first few days, your eyes appear brighter, with a more alert, youthful look. Under-eye bags are smoothed away, and dark circles will be a thing of the past once the bruising fades.
Thermage® treatments take a little more time to show visible improvements. In 2-4 weeks, you’ll notice tighter skin, fewer wrinkles, and your eyes appear more open than before. These improvements will continue to accumulate for up to 6 months as collagen fibers grow and firm your skin. Eye treatments such as these at ZENA Medical can take years off your appearance with just a few hours of treatment.
