Eyelid Rejuvenation (Blepharoplasty)
What is Eyelid Rejuvenation?
Combination therapies of UltraPulse CO2 Laser for both Upper and Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasties along with Sciton Laser Skin Resurfacing have revolutionized cosmetic surgery for eyelids and the global face in general. This exciting new technology offers excellent cosmetic results with very little discomfort and minimal downtime, often less than one week.
With this focused CO2 Laser technique, baggy eyelids are treated by removing excess tissue while simultaneously sealing small blood vessels and lymphatics. The laser allows for enhanced visualization of a relatively bloodless surgical field lending to a more precise and rapid surgical procedure. Results typically offer patients less post-operative swelling and bruising and therefore requires less recovery time than with conventional techniques performed with a scalpel.
Laser Blepharoplasty Procedure
After careful pre-operative assessment, Dr. Kent Remington uses the specialized CO2 surgical laser to follow the unique folds of each individual eyelid to remove a precise amount of tissue. The results boast a very natural eyelid rejuvenation rather than a “surgically enhanced” look, common with older conventional methods.
In combination with Upper and/or Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty, the Dynamis Erbium Yag laser is used to resurface and tighten under eye wrinkling. Optimal results are then achieved by using a neuromodulator, such as Botox, to treat frown lines in the eyebrow and crows feet areas.
