For many people the focal part of the face are the eyes and the areas that surround them. When we start a conversation, we tend to look directly into a person’s eyes. We tend to notice when he or she looks tired and run down, and sometimes as we age we can adopt that appearance even when we’re feeling wide awake and full of energy. However, for individuals who wish to examine the options available to reduce the appearance of aging around the eyes, there are a number of different eye rejuvenation treatments available. Popular options include fillers to treat the tear troughs, or Botox to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.
One of the more popular treatment areas is directly around the eyes. When the skin in this area starts to sag it can make an individual look prematurely old or tired. Typically, this is treated with a skin tightening procedure called Thermage. This is a common method for helping to reduce wrinkles in the eye bag area, and can make the eyes appear more “awake.”

How Thermage Works
Thermage works by using Radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely heat the area under the skin, while cooling the surface at the same time. The heating helps tighten existing collagen to give the appearance of smooth looking skin. Another benefit of having Thermage is that it also helps stimulate the collagen in the treatment area which in turn further helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
When it comes to the eye area, an individual may have issues with a number of different aspects and these are typically treated using different methods. For example, Thermage will not help treat the tear duct area. However, one of the benefits of undergoing Thermage is that it is a procedure that works well when done in combination with other techniques too. So, for some it may be appropriate to use eMatrix® in addition to Thermage in order to help reduce under-eye wrinkles.
Ultimately the best treatment or combinations of treatments are selected on an individual basis and dependent on your own requirements as to what areas you wish to treat. Dr. Green can discuss the options that are open to you with a consultation where you can discuss your needs and any concerns you may have.
Thermage can be used in other areas of the body and face too. One area that many people are interested in these days, is a “Thermage browlift.” In this case sometimes Thermage can be used in the brow area to help reduce the appearance of sagging in this area. Typically, this area is treated with procedures such as Botox but this is not always appropriate for everyone. A big benefit of undergoing Thermage treatments is that results can last up to two years which can be a major benefit when it comes to time and confidence for many busy individuals in New York (we also get many patients from outside NYC, or visitors from other countries).
