You can limit yourself to watching the video, however, if you want to learn more about the healing progression and results, all the information is presented later in this case study. You should keep in mind the this is first treatment the subject had undergone and the results may not be dramatic, however, it is possible to appreciate the improvements. In order to achieve the desired results a number of treatments are required. On average, for a similar case, a minimum of three treatments are recommended. The following video provides you with a quick overview of this case study.

In particular, the video shows you:

  • A summary of the before images of right and left lower eyelids.
  • The healing progression summary.
  • The entire procedure.
  • In the end, we show a comparison between before and after the procedure.

The device used for this procedure was the BeautyTeck. This device has 32 power levels and two batteries configurations.

The subject is Asian and 37 years old at the time of the first treatment.

The results are as expected after this type of treatment. As we know, normally the scabs fall off a week after the procedure. This is the first and only case where the scabs have been present for over two weeks.

Treatment intensity and device power setting.

For this treatment, the device was set at level eight (with three battery configuration), which is very strong for this type of treatment. Normally, when you first attempt this type of procedure, a very low-level power setting is recommended i.e. level one (three battery configuration).

The duration of the arc was very short, almost instantaneous.

The distance between the spots varied from a fraction of a millimetre to 2 millimetres depending on the area treated.

This is considered a medium-high intensity treatment.

The numbing product used was a 20% lidocaine based cream. This provided a very good degree of numbness.  Particular care has to be taken so that the numbing product does not get into the eyes. In case the numbing product gets into the eye/s the procedure has to be stopped and the eyes must be rinsed with clean running water immediately.

During the procedure, the numbing product is removed in patches and not all at once. This is because the effect of the numbing product is brief therefore if removed all before the treatment by the time the aesthetic practitioner reaches the end of the treatment or before the end of the treatment the area can have lost desensitization.

Remember, never to place the spots inside the wrinkles themselves and always work between the lines. If you find it necessary to achieve a better skin coverage pull the skin and place the spots randomly.

We have taken plenty of detailed before pictures. Here you will find them all. Remember it is very important to take plenty of before pictures because this is the reference of comparison which will be used to show the improvements. In most cases the improvements are only minor after each session, therefore taking several before pictures are paramount to allow you to show the improvements after the treatment.

Here you can clearly see lines below the eyelids. This is a very common sign of ageing. This is a closeup for left eye and fine expression lines are visible below the eyelids

You can appreciate the improvement after the first treatment. On average three treatments are advisable to achieve substantial results. This is the area which shows the signs of ageing quite soon even using very good skin care products.

Right eye, before and after the treatment.

In this case, the subject did not use any makeup during the healing progression.  Instruct the customer to apply the antiseptic cream twice a day. The area should heal in few weeks ( 2-3 weeks generally)  after the treatment. No makeup (even Mineral makeup) should be applied until the scabs are fallen off. You have to avoid sun exposure first three months after the treatment. It usually peaks from the fourth to six-day after and it disappears 14 to 16 days after the treatment.

The subject resumed all normal professional activities 4 days after the treatment, once the discomfort and the swelling subsided completely.

This is the longest period it took for the scabs to fall off on their own accord. All the scabs fell off 17 days after the treatment. This is a peculiar case, as normally the scabs fall off within a week after the treatment. This is probably due to the skin type and the relatively high power level the device was set at during the treatment. It is believed that the high power setting of the device caused a deeper than usual ablation into the skin which in turn caused thicker scabs which lasted longer than usual.

After the scabs fell off on their own accord, the subject reported the presence of little marks were the ablative spots were placed. However, as expected these disappeared within three months after the treatment. As a rule of thumb, these marks can remain there for a few weeks but they will disappear on their own accord.

These marks can only become permanent if the subject exposes herself/himself to UV light within three to four months after this type of aesthetic treatment.

This is the area the day after treatment. Discomfort was reported in terms of mild pain and burning sensation.
