Both Pelleve and Thermage radiofrequency are used to tighten eyelid skin

I have used both Thermage and Pelleve extensively around the eyes and eyelid skin for several years. Neither procedure produces the same lifting as a surgical blepharoplasty, but in those patients that are not candidates for surgery, either the Thermage or Pelleve can be used on the eyelids. For the upper eyelids, I often add Botox to the lower forehead area and outer eyebrows as this helps lift the eyebrow/upper eyelid complex as well.
