Non-invasive Radio Frequency Treatment for Droopy Eyelids


Treatment Options


Learn more about the treatment option available for droopy eyelids


Non-invasive radio frequency treatment stimulates the body's collagen production by penetrating into the dermis in a high-density dot pattern. The procedure promotes a rapid healing response due to the presence of stem cells in the surrounding untreated areas, which will promote new collagen growth in the treated area. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. 

Why choose non-invasive radio frequency treatment for droopy eyelids

This treatment is a good alternative for people who suffer from mild to moderately loose eyelid skin, but who are not ready for surgical alternatives. Eyelid tightening can be performed on either the upper or lower lids, or both. The procedure is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Painless
  • Requires no downtime

Possible risks

  • Bruising
  • Swelling

Estimated cost

The average cost for non-invasive radio frequency treatment therapy is from $1,000 to $5,000. Since most medical insurance companies consider non-invasive radio frequency treatment a cosmetic procedure, it is usually not covered. 

How to prepare for the procedure

Before the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will review the patient's medical history. This is the time for the doctor and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. Be sure to alert the doctor regarding any:
  • Allerigies
  • Medical conditions
  • Medications
Pain medication and a topical anesthetic sometimes are administered before the procedure. 

What to expect after the procedure

  • Slight flushing or redness for up to two hours
  • Swelling
  • Full recovery in three to four days
