The eyes play a large role in our overall appearance, so correcting aged eyelids can make you look substantially younger. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we are proud to offer eyelid rejuvenation treatments to men and women living in Mandeville, New Orleans, the Northshore and Covington, LA.
What is Eyelid Rejuvenation?
Eyelid rejuvenation is a non-invasive technique that can restore youthfulness to the eyes by addressing sagging skin and lines and wrinkles around the eyes. By using laser energy, we are able to precisely exfoliate dry, damaged skin to refresh the appearance. This process simultaneously stimulates collagen production, which will continue to tighten and rejuvenate the eyelids over the months following treatment. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we use the Fotona SmoothEye® laser system for eyelid rejuvenation.
How Much Does Eyelid Rejuvenation Cost?
If you choose to pursue eyelid rejuvenation treatment at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach to your eyelid rejuvenation treatment. Once these variables are considered, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any other associated fees.
What is the Eyelid Rejuvenation Treatment Like?
The eyelid rejuvenation treatment is a three-step process. During the first step, the Fotona laser device is passed over the skin delivering laser energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. Then, the device is passed over the skin a second time. On the second pass, a different laser energy is used to carefully exfoliate damaged and aged skin, creating space for new, healthy skin to grow. Finally, a third pass is performed, exfoliating the outermost layer of skin with light laser energy to remove superficial imperfections and to complete the treatment.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Eyelid Rejuvenation?
After eyelid rejuvenation, you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. However, you may notice redness or sensitivity in the treated areas due to the recent exfoliation of the outermost layers of skin. This newly revealed skin is highly sensitive, so it is important to protect it from the sunlight and avoid using certain cosmetic products until it heals. Most patients are fully recovered from eyelid rejuvenation in about one week. We will provide you with specific instructions during your consultation so you are well-prepared for the brief recovery process.
When Will I Notice Results from Eyelid Rejuvenation?
The results from your eyelid rejuvenation treatment will begin to become visible after the skin has healed and collagen production has increased in the body. Most patients notice results within a week or two, with more dramatic results developing over the months following treatment.
