How to Tighten Eyelid Skin Without Surgery
Many begin their anti-aging eye journey with eye creams and other topical products. These options may provide a minor skin-firming effect but rarely the degree of tightening you want. People with drooping eyelids may think a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift is their only option.
Fortunately, Tixel® provides a non-surgical option for tightening loose eyelid skin. This treatment triggers collagen development, making thin, wrinkled eyelid skin look firmer and smoother. Along with the eyes, Tixel® can provide skin rejuvenation to the entire face. Your Premier Vein & Body laser aesthetician can customize the intensity of the treatment to address your primary concerns.
How Does Tixel® Work for Eyelid Tightening?
Tixel® provides skin rejuvenation and tightening without laser energy, making it safe for more skin types and tones. Unlike many lasers, Tixel® works safely around the eyes and even on the eyelids due to its use of Thermo-Mechanical Action (TMA®), which applies heat with a grid of tiny titanium cones. The cones touch the skin for a fraction of a second, creating tiny areas of micro-damage.
Your skin responds by increasing collagen production and activating repair mechanisms. Your skin cells will continue to add new collagen over the following weeks. The surface of your skin will also look smoother and brighter as youthful new cells replace the older, damaged ones.
How Long Does a Tixel® Treatment Take?
Tixel® treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses thermal energy to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. The treatment typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the targeted areas. Our experienced laser aestheticians strive to ensure comfort during the procedure and may apply numbing cream as needed.
We customize the strength of the session based on your specific needs and goals. More intensive treatment may require longer downtime but yield quicker results. We work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that best suits your preferences and desired outcomes. Premier Vein & Body is dedicated to providing safe and effective Tixel® treatment that will leave your eyelids looking tighter and rejuvenated.
How Many Tixel® Treatments Will I Need?
The number of Tixel® treatments needed depends on factors like skin condition and treatment intensity. Most people will start to see results after one treatment, but most patients need a series of three for desired results. We will discuss your cosmetic goals and your recommended number of sessions during your consultation with Dr. Craig Schwartz. Tixel patients will benefit from annual touch-up treatments.
