Fractional Laser Resurfacing for Eye Wrinkles

Your eyes say a lot about you. They can reveal your emotions, your level of attentiveness, as well as the amount of sleep you had last night. Your eyes are a focal point of your face and whether you realize it or not, they communicate a wealth of information to those around you. It’s no surprise that the eyes are a top cosmetic concern for patients like you. One of the most common questions our patients have is about improving the wrinkles around the eyes.

Your eyelid skin is extremely thin and delicate. This is why it’s one of the first areas of your face to be adversely affected by age. It thins just like the rest of our skin, so it’s quick to sag, crease, droop and wrinkle. If you’ve researched eye rejuvenation at all, you know that products such as Botox, Dysport and fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can all help reduce the signs of age around the eyes. But sometimes these treatments aren’t enough. To really repair and rejuvenate the eyelid skin, laser resurfacing is necessary.

Here at Celibre Medical, we offer Sciton Profractional laser resurfacing around the eyes. This treatment works by precisely creating thousands of pinpoint, microscopic perforations in the skin. The laser energy does this by heating the skin by targeting water within the skin cells. By carefully creating these microscopic wounds, we force the body into healing, which produces new collagen and healthier looking skin. A specific technique we use is called “coagulation”, and just like it sounds, it heats up the tissue around the area of the laser injury. This second type of injury is more indirect, but it creates a tightening effect, especially in the thin skin under the eyes. The overall effect after treatment is tighter, firmer, younger and smoother looking skin under the eyes.

Fractional laser resurfacing is a great tool for dramatic improvement of eyelid wrinkles. It is often combined with other treatments (like Botox, Dysport, Restylane) to enhances results! There are risks involved in treating the sensitive and delicate eyelid skin with powerful lasers, so make sure that your laser practitioner is expertly trained and has plenty of experience to ensure the safety of your eyes as well as fantastic results.
