Fraxel Eyelid Lift Case # 1063
Fraxel EyeLid Lift
Eyelid lift: Our eyes are often the first thing a person notices about us, and for those of us who have mild to severe under-eye bags, that first glance can make us appear tired, worn, or older than we are. Under-eye bags can have a variety of causes and can look different depending on the natural aging process, genetics, and bone structure of each individual. Though many eye creams, concealers, and other products claim to help with under-eye bags, few can completely revitalize the eye area, leaving patients feeling frustrated.
What is Fraxel laser?
Fraxel laser Treatment is a line of non-surgical lasers for facial rejuvenation, a concept of dermatological treatment that takes advantage of the skin’s regenerative process by treating it fractionally. The energy from the lasers creates tiny columns of thermal destruction in the skin that stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells. It’s working from the inside out of the skin turnover and collagen production, just the body’s natural healing process accelerated.
Eyelid lift Case 1063
A female in her late 40’s came in with concerns regarding the eye bags and darkness under her eyes. After carefully reviewing her options and keeping her medical history in mind, we decided to proceed with 3-4 sessions one month apart using the Fraxel laser to give her the best results. This specific procedure was done in an hour, but we highly recommend applying a numbing cream to the treatment area two hours before the procedure.
The Eydlisd lift procedure
We begin by wiping any oil or numbing cream residue left on the skin’s surface and provide you with ocular shields that protect the eye from exposure to the laser. The doctor also provides numbing eye drops to help with the discomfort of the ocular shields (metal contact lenses). We used the Fraxel 1550 with the eye handpiece at 20/6 for eight passes and an air-cooling machine at the same time to help with the discomfort. Post-treatment, we apply the Zo epidermal cream immediately and send you home with an aftercare kit and instructions.
The Eyelid lift Cost
Fraxel eye treatment is $300.00 per session.
Side effects of eyelid lift
The main side effects are swelling tenderness and redness, which lasts up to 7-10 days but varies with each person depending on their skin type.
The Eyelid Lift Results
Before and after pictures were taken three months apart post one treatment, you can see results just a few weeks after the first session.
The fractional laser beam is divided into small columns of light that strike the skin’s surface during the skin resurfacing operation. They remove older, damaged elastic fibers and collagen to allow for the growth of new tissue in these channels. Skin is tightened, and wrinkles and discoloration are removed. The advantage of employing a fractional laser is that it treats only the damaged area of the skin. As a result, the healing process is quick and virtually painless.
Apart from correcting eye wrinkles, sagging eyelid skin, and drooping brows, the eyelid lift can also be used to cure Crow’s feet and dark circles. It is suitable for individuals with any skin type. This medication has been successfully administered to individuals ranging in age from 30 to 80. Nowadays, younger and middle-aged men and women are opting for this treatment due to sun damage, particularly in/and around big cities, where pollution has depleted the ozone layer, making people more susceptible to harm from UV radiation from the sun.
Patients who undergo Laser Eyelid lifts notice moderate discomfort that fades rapidly, as well as puffiness or redness that resolves within a few days. Although it is not strongly advised, make-up can be applied immediately following treatment, allowing patients to resume their normal daily activities immediately. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes and consists of three to five sessions spaced around three months apart.
