Laser rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes

Laser skin rejuvenation procedure around the eyes

  • Laser rejuvenation does not interfere with vision. There is no risk of corneal damage.
  • Duration - 15-20 minutes.
  • The skin around the eyes becomes firm and elastic, achieving a lifting effect.
  • In most cases, 1 procedure is sufficient.

The essence of the procedure

The laser beam works by heating. Connective tissue cells are injured, so the collagen fibers are pulled together in tight spirals and fill the voids, and the dermis is regenerated. The mechanism is launched to form new connective tissue. Visually, this process is similar to skin tightening.

Effect of the procedure: the skin around the eyes becomes firm and elastic, a lifting effect is achieved. Venous outflow is also enhanced, so the color normalizes, bruises disappear under the eyes, and the vessels do not pass through the epidermis. Puffiness under the eyes is eliminated by improving blood circulation and lymph outflow. Normalizes fluid microcirculation, so swelling disappears under the eyes.

The laser also removes bruises under the eyes, if the cause is pigmentation. It destroys the cells that produce pigment, and the darkness disappears.

Achievable result from laser rejuvenation

After treating the skin around the eyes with a laser beam, the number and depth of static wrinkles are reduced, and dynamic wrinkles are completely cleared. The microrelief of the eyelids is enhanced, the outline of the eyes is emphasized.

The face looks fresh and vibrant. As the tone of the tissues is restored, over-hanging of the upper eyelid is eliminated, the appearance becomes lighter. "Bags" are reduced under the eyes, creating the effect of wide open eyes.

Age spots are lightened by removing the keratinized layer of the epidermis and destroying the pigment.

Number and frequency of procedures to achieve the result

The cosmetologist determines the exact number of sessions individually after diagnosing the condition of the periorbital zone. Since the skin around the eyes of young people is thin and sensitive, one treatment is enough. When a renewal is performed after 40 years, several sessions may be required to restore the previous experimenter. In this case, the result will be more stable and long lasting.

Who is this procedure for?

Laser treatment of the skin around the eyes is done to eliminate cosmetic defects. After 25 years, patients correct the first signs of photography and prevent age-related changes. At the age of 45-50 years, laser rejuvenation delays skin aging. Patients sign up for a session to combat wrinkles, darkened skin, drooping eyelids.

Advantages and disadvantages of laser rejuvenation

The rejuvenating effect is observed not only on the eyelids, but also on the entire upper third of the face. Rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes enhances the overall look of the face.

Good result at low cost compared to plastic surgery. The laser coagulates the vessels, so bleeding is excluded. Modern lasers are distinguished by ultra-precise settings. This helps the doctor regulate the penetration of the beam to a defined depth (there is no risk of burning and scars on thin skin).

Patients should not be afraid that the treated areas of the eyelids will be visible against the background of the whole person. Laser rejuvenation is characterized by the absence of a boundary zone, i. e. the boundaries between the treated area and the untreated area are destroyed.

Despite the numerous benefits, the effect of the procedure is temporary. After 1. 5-2 years, a second session is necessary. The laser cannot completely track static wrinkles, but only slightly pushes them out.

Indications for the procedure

  • dynamic and static wrinkles, "legs of the peaks" on the outer corners of the eyelids, wrinkles along the tear tank;
  • "bags" and swelling in the lower eyelid;
  • drooping of the eyelids associated with age;
  • lack of visible moving eyelid due to over-stretched skin;
  • poor skin quality - loss of elasticity, flabbiness, reduced tone and turgor;
  • dilated capillaries around the eyes;
  • pronounced nasolacrimal folds;
  • skin defects resulting from mechanical damage.

Young patients resort to laser rejuvenation for dark circles and bruises under the eyes, age spots, dryness.


The procedure is not always safe. The doctor will refuse to run a session if:

  • impaired blood clotting;
  • chronic conjunctivitis;
  • dermatological pathologies - vitiligo, demodicosis, eczema, etc. ;
  • prone to hyperpigmentation.

Relative limitations of laser skin rejuvenation around the eyes:

Combination of laser eye rejuvenation with other procedures

For greater effect, after rejuvenating the skin around the eyes, you can do a forehead and eyebrow lift.

After a few weeks, you can have botulinum therapy in the forehead and between the eyebrows.

To achieve a powerful anti-aging lift, a combination of lasers with bioremediation is recommended. This strengthens the frame of the eyelids, saturates the skin cells with hyaluronic acid. As a result, dryness and peeling of the peaks disappear. At a young age, the laser is combined with mesotherapy. Vitamin and microelements complexes increase tone and stimulate cellular metabolism.

If you need to improve the quality of the skin around the eyes, tighten the dermis and restore turgor, a combination of CO2 lasers with injection procedures is recommended.

If only it is necessary to smooth out the emerging mimic wrinkles and eliminate hypertrophy of the circular muscles, botulinum therapy is performed 2-3 weeks before laser rejuvenation.

If static wrinkles need to be corrected, remove the "bags" and reduce the intensity of the nasolacrimal tank, after laser rejuvenation, a course of contouring plastics with hyaluronic fillers is performed.
