Using the Colibri™, we can perform a non-surgical procedure to remove excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids to improve visual and physical appearance.
The correct name for this procedure is called Blepharoplasty and is used to remove access skin that can impair the function of the eye, including visual field obstruction. At Burlington Medical Aesthetics, we perform Blepharoplasty as a non-surgical treatment dependent on the severity.
How does the Colibri™ work?
Colibri utilizes Unipolar RF-based technology to produce Microplasma sparks, delivering energy via a specially shaped tip that creates controlled micro-perforations. Once delivered, the micro ablation damage leads to skin contraction, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. To see full results, we urge our patients to wait for 30 days post-treatment. The Colibri offers a highly effective alternative to surgical treatments used today.
How is the Colibri™ different?
The Colibri™ is the only market solution offering dual ablative and thermal modes for the treatment of sagging eyelids and facial wrinkles. The Colibri applicator embodies the highest peak power solution on the market for a non-surgical eyelid lift, periorbital & perioral fine lines & wrinkles, and Xanthelasma. Targeting hard-to-reach and hard-to-treat anatomical areas such as periorbital and perioral, this solution can focus on saggy and lax excess skin, which in other cases may need surgical intervention and prolonged downtime.
