Has the skin on your face been looking dull? Do you have acne scars or dark spots? You may have lines and wrinkles around your eyes, or your eyelids look more hooded now. You might be a great candidate for the use of the CO2 Fractional Laser!
The CO2 Fractional Laser is an innovative laser with true versatility in aesthetic medicine. The core of the CO2 Fractional Laser aims to rejuvenate and improve the overall texture of patients’ skin. Using a CO2 Fractional Laser has proven to be one of the best single treatments for advanced skin damage and texture repair.
This method has been used for years to treat different skin issues, including wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and other conditions. This procedure can be used to treat the face, neck, and/or chest or can be used specifically on the eyes in a procedure known as the “Madonna Laser Eye Lift.” It is also effective on sun damage spots and benign lesions.
The Madonna Laser Eye Lift utilizes the Bella Donna Fractional CO2 laser and targets the areas around the eyes. The laser treatment will also:
- Reduce crow’s feet
- Minimize wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes and eyelids
- Resurface the skin
- Stimulate skin to produce collagen
What to expect from your appointment:
Laser skin resurfacing can trigger breakouts in people who are at risk. First, you will have a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Tell the doctor if you get cold sores or fever blisters around your mouth.
If you go ahead with laser skin resurfacing, your doctor will ask you to avoid taking any medications or supplements that can affect clotting &emdash; such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or vitamin E &emdash; for 10 days before surgery. If you smoke, you should stop for two weeks before and after the procedure. Smoking can prolong healing.
Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic beforehand to prevent bacterial infections and also an antiviral medication if you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters.
