Have people been telling you that you look like you need more sleep when you’ve been averaging 9 hours a night? Do your eyelids feel heavy throughout the day? Do you have noticeable crows feet? You may be a good candidate for blade-less eyelid rejuvenation with fractionated CO2 laser. While many have heard of laser resurfacing for your face and skin, you may not know about how fractional CO2 laser can be used to specifically target your eyelids, giving you a more refreshed and awake look.
CO2 fractional laser eye lift is a non-surgical eyelid lift. Unlike a blepharoplasty, the laser eyelid lift allows you to lift and tighten your upper and lower eyelids for a more rejuvenated look without going under the knife. It can improve the appearance of dark circles under your eyes , fine wrinkles around your eyes and helps to elevate drooping eyebrows for that youthful appearance you once had. It has a number of the benefits of a surgical eye lift without the risks and downtime.
Before the procedure, Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Layke will apply topical numbing cream to the areas to be treated. During the procedure, the laser causes thermal energy to stimulate collagen formation and therefore tighter and healthier skin. This leads to smoothing of wrinkles around and above the eyes as well as lifting the eyelids and brows to give you a more well rested appearance. While one treatment may give you the desired outcome you are looking for, two or more treatments may be recommended by Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Layke in order to achieve the optimal results.
Some redness and puffiness will occur after treatment and should reduce over the next day or two. As with any skin treatment, you should avoid direct sun exposure and protect your face with sun block in order to maintain results.
