THERMAGE FOR EYES TREATMENT
Thermage for Eyes can firm the skin around the eyes, make the skin smoother, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the eyelid hooding. The procedure brings natural and long-term results. It rejuvenates the area around the eyes and makes it brighter.
Thermage for Eyes is done with the help of safe radiofrequency energy that heats the deep layers of the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen. The new collagen continues to buildup and gradually makes the skin around the eyes plumper, smoother and rejuvenated. It improves the texture of the under eyes skin and of the eyelids.
The treatment can reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. As it triggers the production of collagen and elastin, it makes the unattractive under eyes hollows fuller. Moreover, Thermage for Eyes is especially effective in treating under eyes bags. It makes the puffy bags under the eyes less swollen and more balanced and smooth. This treatment is also called a non-surgical eye lift because it lifts and firms the eyelid skin in a non-invasive way.

VENUS LEGACY TREATMENT
Venus Legacy is one of the most state-of-the-art, non-invasive procedures that tighten the skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, reduce the stubborn pockets of fat, lift saggy skin and eliminate cellulite dimples.
The treatment can be used on both the face and body, it is fast and doesn’t require a long downtime. The first results can be seen after the first treatment session.

LIFTING THREADS TREATMENT
Thread lift treatment represents an advanced facial rejuvenation. It involves placing temporary sutures under the skin for a subtle but still visible lift. These threads pull the skin slightly back and firm the forehead, cheeks, jawline, under-eye area or neck. The threads also stimulate the body’s own healing processes and production of collagen.
This treatment gradually improves the skin’s tightness and tone. The body’s healing processes are constantly active because they want to heal the areas where the threads have been inserted. However, the patients don’t feel this because the threads are small.
The recovery period is very short and patients can resume their daily routine soon after the treatment. It’s just important to follow the after-care protocol.
This treatment is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity as the threads subtly lift the skin and provide natural-looking results. The results of a thread lift treatment can last between one and three years when the patients can have a touch-up treatment when their bodies have fully absorbed the old sutures.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT NON-SURGICAL LIFT TREATMENT?
The first step is having a consultation with Lucia Clinic’s skin doctor or Therapist. The doctor or therapist examines the patient’s skin and asks the patient about previous medical history. The patient talks about his/her skin concerns, needs and expectations. Then the doctor/therapist determines which non-surgical lift treatment would be the most suitable for that patient and creates a customized treatment plan which includes the number of necessary sessions.
Every non-surgical lift treatment has a different duration time and can last between 30 minutes to 2 hours. All the treatments at Lucia Clinic have been FDA-approved which means that they are safe. The treatments are comfortable and require minimal to no downtime. This is a great benefit of these treatments because the patients don’t need to spend a lot of time on recovery and can resume their normal daily activities right away.
Regarding the treatment’s results, some are noticed immediately, while others need 3 to 6 months to become fully visible. All patients are different and the effects of the treatment can vary. It all depends on the patient’s skin condition and the speed of the aging process.
These treatments are an excellent choice for patients who wish to avoid surgical lifts and longer recovery periods.
Non-surgical lifts are great procedures for improving the appearance of the skin and turning back the time. They can take years off a patient’s face and require only a short visit to the clinic. The patient doesn’t have to take time off work or avoid social interaction. Also, these treatments are painless to very tolerable and don’t cause that many side effects- therefore they are becoming more and more popular in the world of the aesthetic industry.
