Neotensil: The new breakthrough in noninvasive eyelid rejuvenation
As one of the first offices in the country to get the early release of Neotensil we are happy to introduce this new and exciting technology to Richmond. Remember when you were a kid and put glue or rubber cement on your skin and it tightened up? Well, this is a much more advanced technology but involves applying an invisible liquid film to the lower eyelid skin. Within an hour, the film tightens up and truly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and bags. This is not some drugstore or TV hype cream, but a breakthrough technology from my friend Dr. Rox Anderson at Harvard University. It is not magic as it is temporary and lasts up to 16 hours. The price for the product factors out at $10 per day and does not have to be used daily. Some patients will only use it for social engagements, etc.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of my favorite procedures and Neotensil will not replace lower lid surgery, but rather is a therapy for those who are not ready for surgery or for some reason are not surgical candidates.
Living Proof® Neotensil™ daily under-eye reshaping procedure is the only noninvasive solution that reduces the appearance of under-eye bags, within an hour.1,* Brought to you exclusively by Obagi Medical Products.
Powered by patented Strateris® technology, Neotensil dramatically reduces the appearance of under-eye bags and wrinkles with a cross-linked, invisible film.1,2,*,†
