Thermage or Ulthera for lax skin around the eye? Are they safe? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
Thermage is definitely best around the eyes.
Thermage does not remove or melt facial fat. That was reported only rarely in the early days of Thermage around 2002 and 2003. This was due to user error and has not been reported in the last ten or so years. Ulthera has been reported to cause facial fat loss as recently as 2012.
Furthermore, Botox is not a tightening procedure. Therefore it would be totally ineffective for reducing lid laxity
Thermage for Skin Laxity
Thermage works very well for skin laxity, around the face, eyelids, and various areas of the body. It is really critical to consult an expert for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
