How to Get Rid of Eye Bags and Sagging Eyelids
In the past, those with eye bags and sagging eyelids would probably need a blepharoplasty to see their desired improvements, as laser treatments that tighten other parts of the face are generally unsafe around the eyes. Blepharoplasty uses small incisions in the upper and lower lids to tighten loose skin.
Tixel® is the first-ever non-surgical alternative to safely treat signs of aging around the eyes. Unlike blepharoplasty, it requires no time off work, no limits on your activities, and minimal discomfort. At Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, we offer Tixel® non-surgical blepharoplasty for total eye rejuvenation. This treatment achieves dramatic improvements with long-lasting results.
As an entirely new option for eyelid rejuvenation, Tixel® tightens and firms the treated area without incisions or injections. New collagen thickens and strengthens the upper eyelids to eliminate a crepey, wrinkled appearance. It also tightens the undereye area to smooth eye bags and puffiness.
How Does Tixel® Work for Eye Bags and Sagging Eyelids?
Tixel® works using thermal-mechanical action (TMA®). A small metal plate with pyramid-shaped titanium points briefly touches your skin. It transfers heat into the skin and creates tiny areas of controlled thermal damage. The skin responds to this micro-damage by producing new collagen, making the skin firmer and smoother. Increased collagen production restores the skin’s underlying support structure to correct sagging eyelids.
The mechanical action of Tixel® makes it incredibly precise, allowing it to work safely around the eyes and even on the eyelids. Tixel® can be used all over the face to tighten the skin but works especially well in the eye area. It has earned its reputation as a non-surgical blepharoplasty due to its unmatched level of lifting and firming.
What Should I Expect During a Tixel® Treatment?
Your Premier Vein & Body team will customize your Tixel® treatment to meet your needs. With several intensity settings, Tixel® allows you to choose what your treatment feels like, how much downtime you will have, and how many treatments you will need. Less intensive treatments can produce the same results but will require more treatments.
We offer numbing cream for more intensive treatments or if you have concerns. You may feel some heat when the titanium tips touch the skin, but this lasts a fraction of a second.
