What does it mean to be a giant in the field of dermatology? Like Dr. Key, the most prominent authorities in the field are the ones who change it. Key Laser is proud to be led by an innovator like Dr. Douglas Key, who has recently earned another distinction by publishing a study with Dr. Boudreaux in the renowned scientific journal, Journal of Drugs in Dermatology. Dr. Key established himself as one of the nation’s leading authorities in cosmetic laser medicine, and today he continues to innovate newer and safer treatments for rejuvenation.
Dr. Key’s study, titled “A Proposed Method for Upper Eyelid and Infrabrow Tightening Using a Transcutaneous Temperature Controlled Radiofrequency Device With Opaque Plastic Eye Shields,” addresses one of the most complicated areas to treat for rejuvenation: the eyelids. Droopy upper eyelids can happen for reasons related to aging, weight gain, and even genetics. As we age, the fine skin, connective tissue, and muscles in the eyelids start to droop and wrinkle. Patients have sought a solution for baggy eyelids for a long time, essentially because they have the unintended effect of making a patient look older and more tired than they really are.
Today, solutions for droopy eyelids include blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, skin, and muscle. As effective a surgical procedure might be, surgical procedures bring a host of possible complications, and the possibility of a long and strenuous recovery time. This makes it especially unappealing for younger patients who often seek a less invasive procedure.
Dr. Key’s study explores a revolutionary new method for rejuvenating the eyelid using nonsurgical techniques; specifically, the study shows how radiofrequency energy could be used to trigger collagen production and restructuring, leading to a natural tightening and lifting of the upper eyelids.
The study concludes that with the use of black eye shields, the delivery of radiofrequency energy to the eyelids is quite safe and effective for the treatment of baggy upper eyelids.
