LASER EYE TIGHTENING
WHAT IS THE FOTONA SMOOTH LASER EYE TIGHTENING TREATMENT?
FotonaSmooth™ is basically a non-surgical eyelift laser treatment. It offers peri-Ocular eye wrinkle tightening , which is a particularly popular treatment for clients 40 and over. As we age, the thin and delicate skin around our eyes is often the first to show wrinkles and “crepiness”. Even the best eye cream can only hydrate the skin, making it appear more plump, but cannot noticeably tighten wrinkles and fine lines around eyes.
The treatment is best combined with Botox and eye cream for wrinkles, which can be a great treatment for crows feet around the exterior corner of eyes. Unfortunately, Botox cannot be safely used underneath the eye and as well does not strengthen the actual skin the way that lasers can. Under eye filler can also be used in conjunction with the laser eye tightening treatment to treat under eye bags.
The laser treatment can also help to tighten upper eyelids and can be a great alternative for those considering an upper Blepharoplasty, but do not yet have severe drooping of the eyelids
How does the treatment work?
The Fotona Erbium laser is attaracted to water in the skin’s collagen. It heats the tissue, causing immediate contraction, as well as ongoing stimulation of the bosy’s immune system to create new, stronger collagen. This means that the skin will continue to tighten over the weeks and months after the treatment. The laser eye tightening treatment pairs very well with under eye filler, together they reduce bags and wrinkles under the eyes.
How many treatments are needed?
Due to the fact that the treatment relies on the body’s immune system for the results, the number of sessions will vary from person to person. Genetics, age and lifestyle will also affect the results. Most clients typically do see improvement after one treatment in their before and after photos.
On average, Revive recommends 2-3 treatments, performed 6 weeks apart. Maintenance sessions may be required every 1-2 years.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
After the treatment your skin may appear red for 3-7 days (similar to a moderate sunburn) and in some instances there may be mild swelling and puffiness around the eyes. The skin will feel dry and tight for several days the then some skin flaking will occur for 2-3 days. The area should appear to be fully healed within 4-7 days, depending on the intensity of settings used.
