As we age, the skin and tissues under our eyes naturally loosen, causing wrinkles and bags. Thankfully, there are many non-invasive cosmetic treatments available to eliminate eye puffiness and dark circles.
Several different laser treatment techniques can be used to help eliminate fine lines and reduce discoloration under the eyes. These techniques are effective, safe and offer long-lasting results.
Fraxel laser for under eye treatment
Fraxel is a skin resurfacing procedure that can be used to remove sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. It works by creating microscopic injuries in the skin that trigger a healing reaction without damaging the surface.
During the treatment, the doctor Cameron K. Rokhsar uses a laser to make multiple passes over each area of the face. She also applies a topical numbing cream, which can provide enough pain relief to make the treatment more comfortable for most patients.
When the laser reaches the targeted skin, it will cause the skin to become very red and warm. This is normal and will last for several days to a few weeks, but the result is that the damaged cells will start to peel off of your skin and be replaced with new, healthy skin.
The resulting skin will be smoother and have an even tone, making it look more youthful. The results are noticeable after just a few treatments, although many patients opt for multiple sessions to achieve their desired results.
To get the most out of your treatment, it is important to prep your skin correctly before the treatment. It is best to avoid any topical or oral medications that can irritate your skin, such as acne medication or creams with retinol. It is also a good idea to wait until any open wounds or breakouts have healed completely before receiving Fraxel.
It is also recommended to use a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 before and after the treatment, to help protect your skin from further damage. This will speed up the healing process and give you better results.
If you are looking to remove bags under your eyes, a Fraxel laser treatment may be just what you need. It is a safe and effective way to treat the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around your eyes.
It is very important to choose a qualified and experienced doctor to perform the treatment. It is advisable to schedule a consultation so that you can discuss the best course of treatment for your unique skin condition.
eMatrix to remove eye bags
eMatrix is a non-invasive treatment that uses radio frequency energy to stimulate collagen and elastin while leaving the skin’s top layer intact. This technology works to correct fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, textural irregularities, and enlarged pores. It’s safe for all skin types and colors and offers a gentle approach to facial rejuvenation that is minimally invasive with little or no downtime.
During your eMatrix treatment, a special hand piece is used to deliver radio frequency energy to your skin. This energy creates a grid pattern of controlled injuries in the skin that triggers the body’s natural healing response, promoting new healthy cells and stimulating collagen production in the dermis.
This results in smoother, firmer skin and a more youthful appearance. It can also help reduce acne scars, stretch marks, and discoloration.
Like all laser treatments, eMatrix can cause some redness and swelling following your procedure, but these side effects are minimal and should fade away after a week. After your eMatrix treatment, you’ll want to avoid the sun and use a light moisturizer daily to prevent further sagging or flaking.
Because eMatrix is a sublative treatment, it targets the deep layers of your skin, rather than just the surface as with most laser treatments. This allows for less downtime and is more gentle on the skin, which makes it a popular choice among patients with sensitive or damaged skin.
You should schedule a consultation with our board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine if you’re a good candidate for the eMatrix procedure. The doctor will examine your skin and discuss your goals to determine whether this is the best treatment for you.
The eMatrix process is safe and effective, and patients can expect to see significant improvements in the treated area within a few treatments. This is because the energy delivered by eMatrix penetrates the skin below the surface, triggering the body’s natural healing processes.
The eMatrix process is also more gentle on the skin than many other resurfacing procedures, as it doesn’t destroy or harm the top layers of the skin. It also doesn’t cause the same levels of bruising and swelling that ablative lasers do, which is often seen after other resurfacing treatments. It’s safe for all skin types, including those with pigmented skin, so it’s a great option for anyone looking to improve their appearance without the downtime and recovery of more aggressive skin resurfacing techniques.
Laser under eye resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is an effective way to smooth out wrinkles and remove bags under eyes. It can also help with other cosmetic concerns, such as uneven skin tone or sun damage.
The procedure is minimally invasive, and the results are long-lasting. But before you schedule a laser treatment, make sure to choose a dermatologist with experience. Look for a member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) or the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Before your treatment, your doctor will review your medical history and perform a physical exam. They will also ask you about your expectations, and discuss any possible risks or complications with you.
Your doctor may recommend steroid medications to manage swelling and pain following the laser treatment. Swelling and redness will typically fade within a few weeks, but you may need to repeat treatments for the best results.
During the procedure, your doctor will use a laser to vaporize the top layer of your skin. This causes your skin to heal faster and allows new, healthy skin to grow.
A variety of lasers are available, including ablative and nonablative (the former vaporizes the top layer while the latter doesn’t). You can expect to heal for about 10 days after the procedure, but the results will last for years.
Some types of lasers are used to treat skin concerns such as rosacea, broken capillaries, sun damage, and pigmentation. Others are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve uneven skin tone and texture, and eliminate scars.
These lasers can be either ablative or nonablative, and they can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures. For example, you can combine laser resurfacing with Botox or fillers to further minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Before undergoing laser resurfacing, your doctor will take a detailed history of your skin and medical history. They will then perform a physical examination and explain the procedure.
If you have a herpes simplex virus infection, your doctor will prescribe an antiviral medication before and after the treatment to prevent viral infections. This is especially important if you plan to have the laser resurfacing around your mouth.
Dermal filler for under eye bags
Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of bags under eyes by smoothing out the sagging skin around the eye area. They can also help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as enhance contour and definition.
There are several types of dermal fillers used for cosmetic treatments, but they all contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that binds water to skin and can smooth lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is biocompatible, so it does not cause allergic reactions or require allergy tests.
HA can also soften nasolabial folds and laugh lines, as well as plump lips for a more youthful appearance. But like most dermal fillers, HA fillers are only temporary.
When you visit a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, they can recommend a dermal filler that’s appropriate for your specific concerns. These can include a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane or Sculptra.
If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution, the dermatologist or plastic surgeon might suggest a dermal filler that contains polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), an artificially created microsphere that works like hyaluronic acid but lasts longer and is less likely to be absorbed by your body. PMMA is a safe and natural alternative to HA.
The most effective way to avoid having unwanted effects from a dermal filler is to choose a qualified medical aesthetic provider who knows how to properly inject the material into your skin. This is especially important in the eye area, as it can be very delicate.
Choosing an experienced medical professional who has performed many dermal filler treatments can ensure that you’re getting the best results. They should know how to place the filler in the correct depth so that it doesn’t cause unintended puffiness or blueness at the injection site.
They should also be able to explain the potential risks and complications that can occur with any type of dermal filler treatment. Some of these side effects can be very unpleasant and can include infection, pain, bruising or swelling.
Some of these side effects can be mild and can be treated with an anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen or an acetaminophen. However, if you notice any persistent side effects after the filler is injected, it’s best to contact your doctor immediately so that a follow-up appointment can be scheduled.
