Non-invasive Radio Frequency Treatment for Droopy Eyelids

Non-invasive radio frequency treatment stimulates the body's collagen production by penetrating into the dermis in a high-density dot pattern. The procedure promotes a rapid healing response due to the presence of stem cells in the surrounding untreated areas, which will promote new collagen growth in the treated area. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. 

Possible risks

  • Bruising
  • Swelling

Why choose non-invasive radio frequency treatment for droopy eyelids

This treatment is a good alternative for people who suffer from mild to moderately loose eyelid skin, but who are not ready for surgical alternatives. Eyelid tightening can be performed on either the upper or lower lids, or both. The procedure is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Painless
  • Requires no downtime

What to expect after the procedure

  • Slight flushing or redness for up to two hours
  • Swelling
  • Full recovery in three to four days

How to prepare for the procedure

Before the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will review the patient's medical history. This is the time for the doctor and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. Be sure to alert the doctor regarding any:

  • Allerigies
  • Medical conditions
  • Medications

Pain medication and a topical anesthetic sometimes are administered before the procedure.
