Aesthetic Laser Surgery

Your eyes are considered to be your most expressive and beautiful feature. The eyes are our windows of our soul. If the eyes are baggy or puffy we look much older than we are.
Aesthetic Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty or surgical correction of the eyelids has been performed for many years by means of traditional surgical methods to remove the fatty pads of excess skin.

The aesthetic laser has changed all that giving surgeons better control, bloodless surgical conditions and less after effects.

Wiith the laser we can resurface damages skin and remove the excess skin and fat pads. There is less bruising and swelling of the eyelids in comparison to traditional methods thus quickening healing.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

The skin of the whole face around the eyes can be resurfaced by laser surgery. A CO2 Laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to remove fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth. The laser is also effective in removing scarring and uneven pigmentation.

Laser Safety

The CO2 Laser uses high energy beams of light to vaporize scars, lines, wrinkles and other skin defects layer by layer. The laser light penetrates to a very precise controlled depth making the procedure safer and more predictable than treatments such as chemical peel and dermabrasion - thus reducing the risk of scarring or pigmentation.

Laser skin resurfacing shows that it tightens the underlying skin and smoothes wrinkles around the eyes.

It also stimulates the production of collagen to restructure the skin. Collagen is the basic building block of the skin to support for support and structure. With time the sun breaks down the collagen resulting in loss of elasticity and causing wrinkles and fine wrinkles. The new collagen that forms restores the skin to a younger firmer skin.

Laser resurfacing is performed in either a hospital or an outpatient clinic for cost containment. Laser resurfacing is performed under either a local or a general anaesthetic.

It is a relatively quick procedure. It can take anything from a few minutes to over an hour depending on how large an area is involved.

Post Operatively

There will be some mild swelling and bruising after Laser blepharoplasty and skin resurfacing. Post-operative discomfort varies from person to person.

Where the full face is done some crusting will form with weeping which will heal within 7-10 days. Post operative discomfort is much like a light sunburn. Patients require little or no medication for the disomfort.

The final result from Laser resurfacing will take several months to fully apear. Once the pinkness fades the patient will notice a fresher, smoother and younger appearance.
