Trends in aesthetics are evolving to provide patients with less
invasive treatment options. The under-eye region remains a common area of
concern for patients. With age, skin responds more slowly to pulling and its
recoil time lengthens as the integrity of collagen and elastin is compromised.
Research involving the skin integrity in the under-eye region
proved there was something to be done about that and it could be done non-invasively. Thus,
there is a new treatment modality in pre-trial for patients concerned about the all so
common darkness, puffiness and under-eye bags.
The treatment (unnamed until it has FDA clearance) is a completely non-invasive treatment for lower lid
rejuvenation. It is a biomaterial which was created by dermatologists
and biomedical scientists to smooth, tighten and hydrate lax, aging skin. The
material is applied topically with results becoming visible soon after
application (in as little as one hour).
The system works with a two step application process. First,
the contouring complex is applied, which contains the propriety biomaterial. Then
the activator is used to activate the complex to form an invisible,
breathable material that tightens lax skin. The results last throughout
the day with noticeable improvement in puffiness, reduction in bags and fine
lines and wrinkles. Best of all, this is all achieved without surgery.
