No one is a fan of the aging process. Men and women alike constantly fight the idea and realities of growing old. As the years start to show themselves on our face there isn’t anything we wouldn’t consider to turn back time. When we reach a certain age, which of course varies for each of us, a telltale sign of the years under our belt (and stresses that came with it) is our eyes. Once the focal point of our aesthetic, the eyes are now the place where wrinkles, fine lines and Crow’s feet grow. It is also the area that lets the world know just how fatigued we are with its drooping skin and puffy circles. In the past, many have turned to traditional eyelid surgery to restore a youthful appearance, but such invasive procedures leave many weary of costs involved, side effects and recovery length. Now, however, men and women have been turning to non-invasive procedures to save time and money.
At Laser Spa Group we are offering “Madonna EyeLift,” utilizing our Fraxel laser or a combination of laser therapy treatments. The Madonna Lift is a new fractional eyelift procedure that acts as a safe and effective alternative to conventional eyelid surgery. Fraxel uses laser light to target a very specific area, while leaving surrounding tissue intact. These beams eliminate damaged collagen and elastic fibers in the skin so that fresh tissue with new elasticity can grow back in its place. As a result, the Madonna Lift dramatically reduces the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, tightens upper and lower eyelid skin, and helps to elevate drooping eyebrows.
Whereas surgical procedures can often take at least two weeks to heal with a painful recovery process, this non-surgical procedure takes only days and is virtually painless. The only anesthesia needed for the Madonna EyeLift is topical numbing cream that is applied to the eyelids, making it a safe and effective alternative to eyelid surgery without many of the risks, scarring and downtime.
In order to achieve the best results from the Madonna EyeLift, three to five sessions are recommended, delivered at four week intervals. With results you have to see to believe, this quick and easy procedure is helping patients find their own version of the fountain of youth and have left them thrilled to look in the mirror.
The Fraxel Laser is a state of the art skin resurfacing system that is unique in that it can be used to treat your skin without affecting surrounding healthy tissue.
On the face, Fraxel can:
- Lift and open tired eyes
- Smooth crepiness
- Treat dark undereye circles
- Lift Sagging lids and bags
- Rid rows feet
- Build collagenHow many treatments will I need?
Because eyelid skin is very delicate, we must treat cautiously and less aggressively. A package of 4 treatments spread over 3-4 months is the general recommended protocol.
What does the procedure feel like?
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, although we may recommend other approaches to make you comfortable. Metal eye shields are inserted inside the eye to protect the cornea when treating the eyelid. Most people describe it as a “prickling” sensation but is generally not too uncomfortable . You will relax comfortable in our medspa and feel heat and tingling as the laser scanner moves quickly across the eye lid and surrounding orbital area.
How long will the results last?
The eyes can be treated in as little as 30 minutes, with results lasting years, with proper skin care and protection. Clients receiving Laser treatment on the eyes generally notice results after the second treatment, but continue improving up to about 3-6 months following the course of treatment protocol.
Can I do this with other treatments I am getting?
Botox and SkinCeuticals eye creams and serums all enhance the look of your open awake eyes. Often these are good maintenance treatments. If there is hollowing, EndyMed 3DEEP Skin Tightening and or an under eye filler like Redensity 2 may be recommended for you.
Please do not use Retin A for 2 weeks prior to your resurfacing procedure. Talk to one of our clinicians if you have any questions concerning products you are using. Also, minimize sun exposure prior and after your treatment.
What should I expect following the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones. You may see redness and moderate to heavy swelling, and flakiness.
Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin. Following treatment it is extremely important to treat your skin gently and avoid direct sun exposure. Your newly emerged skin is very sensitive and must be treated gently during healing.
What is the recovery time?
While dependent on intensity of treatment, you may experience 3-4 days of recovery period. Because our Laser has the distinct ability to deliver micro pulses of energy, you will quickly heal and within a few days you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle.
