Laser skin rejuvenation around the eyes

Laser skin rejuvenation procedure around the eyes

  • Laser rejuvenation does not affect vision. There is no risk of damage to the cornea.
  • Duration - 15-20 minutes.
  • The skin around the eyes becomes tight and elastic, a lifting effect is achieved.
  • In most cases, 1 procedure is sufficient.

The essence of the procedure

Laser light works by heating. The connective tissue cells are injured, so that the collagen fibers are pulled into a tight spiral and fill the void, and the dermis is regenerated. A new connective tissue formation mechanism is launched. Visually, this process looks like skin tightening.

The effect of the procedure: the skin around the eyes becomes tight and elastic, a lifting effect is achieved. The venous outflow also increases, so that the color becomes normal, the bruises under the eyes disappear, and the blood vessels do not shine through the epidermis. Swelling under the eyes is eliminated by increasing blood circulation and lymph flow. The microcirculation of fluid becomes normal, so the swelling under the eyes disappears.

The laser also removes bruising under the eyes, if the cause is pigmentation. It destroys the cells that produce pigment, and the darkening disappears.

Achievable results of laser rejuvenation

After laser treatment of the skin around the eyes, the number and depth of static wrinkles are reduced, and dynamic wrinkles are completely smoothed. Improved eyelid microrelief, emphasized eye contour.

Face looks fresh and fresh. As the tone of the tissues is restored, the drooping upper eyelid is removed, visually the appearance becomes lighter. The "bags" under the eyes are reduced, the effect of wide-open eyes is created.

Age spots are lightened by removing the keratinized layer of the epidermis and destroying the pigment.

Number and frequency of procedures to achieve results

The cosmetologist determines the exact number of sessions individually after diagnosing the condition of the periorbital zone. Since the skin around the eyes of young people is thin and delicate, one treatment is sufficient. When rejuvenating after 40 years, several sessions may be required to restore previous turgor. In this case, the result will be more stable and durable.

Who is this procedure for?

Laser treatment of the skin around the eyes is performed to remove cosmetic defects. After 25 years, the patient improved the first signs of photoaging and prevented age-related changes. At the age of 45-50 years, laser rejuvenation slows down skin aging. Patients sign up for sessions to combat wrinkles, darkening of the skin, drooping eyelids.

Pros and cons of laser rejuvenation

The rejuvenating effect is seen not only on the eyelids, but also on the entire upper third of the face. Rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes improves the overall perception of the face.

Great results at low cost compared to plastic surgery. The laser thickens the blood vessels, so bleeding is excluded. Modern lasers are distinguished by ultra-precision settings. This helps the doctor regulate the penetration of the beam to a well-defined depth (no risk of burns and scars on thin skin).

The patient need not be afraid that the treated eyelid area will be visible against the background of the whole face. Laser rejuvenation is characterized by the absence of demarcation zones, i. e. the boundary between treated and untreated areas is removed.

Despite its many benefits, the effects of this procedure are temporary. After 1. 5-2 years, a second session is required. The laser can't completely smooth out static wrinkles, but only slightly push them out.
