Published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment, the full title of this clinical study is: A New Treatment Protocol of Micro-Focused Ultrasound for Lower Eyelid Fat Bulging (Hye Chan Jeon, et al.)
Here’s a brief rundown of the study:
Background: Micro-focused ultrasound (MFU) causes tissue tightening by producing thermal injury zones and is used to treat various age-related changes including lower eyelid fat bulging.
Objectives: To investigate the efficacy of a new treatment protocol of MFU for lower eyelid fat bulging.
Materials and Methods: We reviewed the medical records of all patients who began MFU for lower eyelid fat bulging from March 2017 to September 2018. MFU was performed in two steps to tighten the lower eyelid dermis and orbital septum. Data on age, sex, bulging severity, and the number of treatment sessions were obtained. Associations of these variables with treatment response were determined through an ordinal logistic regression analysis.
Results: Among 191 enrolled patients, 119 (62.3%) and 47 (24.6%) achieved fair and good responses, respectively. In the multivariable analysis, multiple treatment sessions (odds ratio [OR] 6.618; 95% confidence interval [CI] 3.242- 13.513; P<0.001), moderate bulging (OR 4.328; 95% CI 1.755–10.671; P=0.001), and severe bulging (OR 7.570; 95% CI 2.537–22.585; P
Conclusion: The new treatment protocol of MFU is an effective and safe strategy for lower eyelid fat bulging.
