Laser Eyelid Surgery
Laser Eyelid Surgery is a good option for those with less severe wrinkles around the eyes
Laser eyelid surgery, also known as laser eyelid resurfacing, is a good option for those with less severe wrinkles around the eyes. Utilizing high-energy beam of the UltraPulse CO2 laser, fine wrinkles and other skin imperfections can safely and effectively be vaporized.
The skin around the eyes is prone to fine lines and wrinkles. “Crow’s feet” wrinkles are a common concern of most of our patients, which radiate from the lateral corner of the eye and project a tired look. Collagen, a substance that helps keep the fine skin around the eyes plump and healthy, is stimulated by the laser to give skin suppleness and elasticity.
Recovery from Laser Eyelid Surgery
Mild swelling and bruising can occur during the immediate post-operative period of laser eyelid surgery. Discomfort is minimal and can be controlled with pain medication, although is often not needed. The area treated can remain pink or red in color for several weeks after surgery; however, we will assist you with applying camouflage make-up during the second week. Sun exposure should be avoided for at least six weeks following treatment.
