Options For Resurfacing The Eyelids
Laser skin resurfacing of the eyelid involves a laser device that triggers collagen formation of the eyelid and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. The goal is to counteract the formation of wrinkles by tightening the deeper layers of the skin, along with changing the skin texture and making new collagen. This is healthy for the skin so that it can look and feel younger. No general anesthesia is required in most cases of laser skin resurfacing of the eyelid. It is a minimally invasive, non-ablative fractional treatment.
Laser Eyelid Resurfacing with Erbium or CO2
Laser skin resurfacing uses an erbium or a carbon dioxide laser. Although other LASERS are used as well for other skin purposes such as pulse dye, the carbon dioxide laser is the stronger procedure and most common. This treatment can be performed with a very strong LASER which is full ablation or a faster healing type which is done with the fractional. This will depend on your needs as to which will give you the best results.
All laser resurfacing treatments are performed by Dr. Sadler, Memphis Laser Clinic’s owner and Chief of Laser Surgery. Dr. Sadler has many types of lasers at his disposal. Once he has decided what is best for your eyelid skin, the laser is set to the proper parameters and is passed over the skin. You can treat just the eyelids, or you can decide to have your whole face treated at the same time. Newer lasers are available that are more effective and cause fewer side effects.
Minimally Invasive Laser Eyelid Resurfacing
The advantage of laser procedures is that they are relatively noninvasive, non-ablative fractional treatments that remove the top layer of skin easily. The second effect is they stimulate the dermis of the skin and cause new collagen to be formed. The results occur over the course of several weeks or months, or up to a year depending on what is being done.
This is a controlled procedure to the eyelid that results in a healing process that makes the skin look rejuvenated. Most deep wrinkles are lessened by 50-70% using laser resurfacing of the eyelid.** Smaller wrinkles will no longer be apparent. c700x420 (3)
Laser Eyelid Recovery
The recovery period from laser resurfacing the eyelid involves putting ointment on the affected area to help it heal faster. You need to avoid exposure of the eyelids to the sun for many months after the procedure is done. This means putting on sunscreen, wearing a wrap around glasses, and wearing a hat to keep the sun off the face. Most patients are confident in appearing in public within 3-8 days, again depending on the technique used.
We at the Memphis Laser Clinic will do all we can to make your treatment quick, as many of our treatments are actually designed for patients to make a rapid recovery.
