Radiofrequency EyeTyte technology is used to precisely reduce fat, tighten the skin in periorbital area known as “eye bags.” The Eye Tyte is a new approach to facial contouring without surgery. The precision single/triple needle system delivers energy to the skin or fat to produce heat. Focused heat reduces unwanted fat and contracts the skin. The targeted energy can treat the skin regardless of skin color type. Patients see improvement in eye bags, fatty jowl/neck/chin, tightening, fine lines with minimal downtime. We now have a tool that we can sculpt and reduce volume where we need to.
RECOVERY TIME POST RF TREATMENT: DEEP LINES AND EYE BAGS
For deep lines and eye bags the downtime is between 3-7 days with possible swelling and redness followed by another week of less severe redness. It is possible to do lighter treatments with less downtime but more treatments may be needed. The redness and swelling may be concealed by foundation at day 4. Sometimes with heavy treatments, numbness and hypersensitivity may be experienced for up to 4 weeks.
AFTER CARE DEEP LINES AND EYE BAGS
Immediately after the procedure for eye bags and deep wrinkles, the surface of the skin will be pink and sensitive for 3-10 days depending on the depth. Some bruising is common also. Ice may be applied every half hour to reduce discomfort and minimize swelling.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR IMPROVEMENT?
For deep wrinkles and eye bags, about 1-2 weeks after you have mostly recovered, the area may actually look “worse” than it did before the procedure, which is normal. Most of the benefit appears over the coming months as new collagen is deposited under the skin and the skin begins to remodel its structure. For the treatment of eye bags, it will take 2-6 months for the fat cells to be removed by the body’s macrophages.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL you NEED?
Benefits from a single treatment may be permanent but this does not mean you can treat everything in a single treatment. 2 or 3 treatments may be needed to get the best result. Further treatments should be 3 to 6 months after the initial treatment. Results vary based on individual circumstances.
