A laser eye lift is a procedure that corrects drooping eyebrows, crow’s feet, sagging skin around the eye and dark circles. It is also known as the Madonna lift. This treatment uses CO2 fractional laser technology to make small holes in the areas around the eyelid and eyes. The surrounding tissue is left intact.
The laser helps stimulate new collagen growth and refresh the skin. It also helps remove damaged collagen. Only a small portion of the skin is affected, so a person will be able to recover quickly. They will also have fewer side effects.
Most patients notice an immediate improvement after they get treatment. Multiple treatments are needed in order for the patient to get the best results. The full results will be noticed after collagen remodeling begins. This usually takes four to six months.
The laser eye lift is not painful for most patients. Most people say that it feels like a rubberband is hitting their skin. A topical anesthetic may be applied in order to reduce discomfort.
The laser eye lift is a very quick procedure. You may need to get two or three sessions. Each session is spaced four to six weeks apart from one another. You can return to your normal activities after your procedure has been completed. You may experience some puffiness and redness after your procedure. However, that will go away within one or two days. You will need to wear sunscreen in order to protect your skin.
