Eyelid Tightening in Orange County, California

The Simple and Easy Way to Brighter Eyes

Orange County Eyelid Tightening Treatments

Eyelid skin can become loose and textured like crepe paper as you age. Tightening the skin tissues on the lid and around the eye can affect a subtle eye lift and give you a younger, more rested appearance. At Total Dermatology, we strive to deliver the best eyelid tightening Irvine has to offer. Thermage Eyes is an FDA-approved procedure for tightening the skin around the eyes and the only FDA-approved treatment of its kind.

Am I A Good Candidate For Eyelid Tightening?

You’re a good candidate for eyelid tightening if you feel you look tired due to under-eye bags, crow’s feet, or sagging eyelids but aren’t ready for more invasive surgery.

What Thermage Eye Procedure Treats:

  • Eyes that appear tired
  • “Hooding” or excess skin in the upper eyelid
  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, such as crow’s feet
  • Crepey skin on and around the eyelids, which can prevent makeup from being applied smoothly

Natural-Looking Results:

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Bright, energized, youthful-looking eyes
  • Smoother and firmer skin around the eyes
  • Lifted eye contours and reduced sagging
  • Reduced hooding for eyes that appear more open and smoother skin on the eyelids for easier makeup application



What's the difference between eyelid tightening with Thermage and an eyelid lift?

Thermage Eyes is a non-invasive technology used to tighten the skin around your eyelids, resulting in a healthier, younger appearance. It can even help your eyes function better when loose skin on your upper eyelids tends to obstruct your vision.

An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure that offers a more intense solution to these problems and can provide more dramatic results. However, an eyelid lift is an invasive surgery. Unlike Thermage, blepharoplasty introduces additional factors to consider, such as:

  • Scarring
  • Greater expense
  • A longer procedure
  • Increased recovery time
  • Anesthesia considerations
  • Possible surgical complications
  • Residual pain, swelling, and discoloration
  • Time away from daily activities for the surgery

Before your treatment plan is finalized, we will thoroughly assess your current condition. Referral to a plastic surgeon for blepharoplasty may be the recommended course of action for some patients. Ultimately, our highest priorities are providing the care you deserve and the most effective treatment to fit your needs.

Your Eyelid Tightening Procedure

At Total Dermatology, we perform all eyelid tightening treatments at our luxurious clinic in Orange County. The exact procedure you experience will be customized to your needs, but treatments usually take less than an hour for most of our Irvine eyelid tightening patients.

Once you’re reclining comfortably in your private treatment room, your aesthetic professional will begin by applying the tip of the wand to the targeted area. Thermage’s patented cooling tip is designed to maximize patient comfort during the treatment. When the tip is initially applied, many of our Orange County eyelid tightening patients say they experience the feeling of heating as the RF energy is delivered deeper into the skin, followed closely by a vibrating and cooling sensation. However, little to no discomfort is typically reported.

Your cosmetic care specialist will move the wand evenly over the treatment zone to ensure that the RF energy is adequately applied and that the results will be balanced and natural. Once the entire area is treated, your procedure will be complete.

Your Thermage for Eyelid Tightening Recovery

You can expect minimal downtime and recovery from Thermage Eyes treatments and be able to return to your daily routine immediately following your treatment.

Some patients experience minor redness and swelling in the treated area. However, these side effects typically resolve within hours and create no lasting discomfort. There is no specialized care required following your Thermage treatment.

Thermage usually works with only one treatment session, unlike other skin tightening treatments, and results can improve over time. Results tend to last about a year, but a variety of factors — including genetics, lifestyle, and environmental stressors — will impact their duration. In addition, your daily routine will play a huge role in your results, so a thorough skincare regimen (including broad-spectrum sun protection) is recommended for achieving the most optimal outcome.
