Can you use Exilis, Thermage on the eyelids?
Yes……but it depends on the system. I’ll run down these briefly here! 🙂
- Thermage – has an small FDA approved eyelid tip that can safely be used all the way to the lash line lower and upper. In my opinion, for safety, the tip should be used with the gel cushioned laser safety “contact lenses” in the eyes. Comforatable. Same for all these below.
- Exilis – the hand piece in different and there is not a special eyelid tip so the treatment can be done above the brow for a little lift, around the sides the crow’s foot area and underneath over the bone – all for tightening but not actually on the eyelids. Comfortable.
- Peleve – I’ve not seen or heard of an eye tip for this so the above Exilis info would apply. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong on this!
- Ultherphy – Same as Peleve – this system tends to be painful.
Fraxel, a laser, also has an FDA approved eyelid tip that can safely be used to the lash line if needed. It works fairly well for fine crepiness and lines.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
