Eyelid sagging is a common complaint by aging patients. Although various attempts have been made to treat the issue, catering satisfactory results to patients without causing adverse effects has never been easy. Here, we demonstrated that High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound can be a valuable tool to treat eyelid sagging.
Materials and Methods
Twenty Korean women aging from 30 to 60 were enrolled who had mild to moderate upper and lower eyelid sagging. Subjects were treated with a 2.0 mm, 4-MHZ HIFU (ultraformer III; Classys Inc., Seoul, Korea) probe on periocular area. Photos were taken before and 12 weeks after the treatment, and they were evaluated by two blinded clinicians. The perceived improvement was rated using a 4-point scale by both patients and the clinicians. Also the width of the eyelid was measured and compared before and after the treatment.
The results showed that 17 patients (85%) admitted to have experienced some clinical improvement. In 15 out of 20 cases, the clinicians were able to discern the improvement. Also, the mean width of the eyelid was reduced 12 weeks after the treatment, showing its potential to become one of the effective methods to successfully treat eyelid aging.
High-intensity focused ultrasound is a useful method for improving eyelid sagging.
