Are Lasers Safe Around the Eyes?

If you’ve been searching for the best way to achieve total skin rejuvenation, you’ve probably noticed the handful of procedures and treatments on the market. For those seeking a more dramatic transformation, a facelift or eyelid surgery may be the right choice.

But if you’re looking for a non-invasive way to turn back the clock on your aging skin, a laser treatment is an option worth considering. The thought of using heat around the eyes may be intimidating, but at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics we offer a variety of laser treatments that are completely safe and effective.

Dr. Birchall and our medical staff have years of experience using laser therapy to target unwanted dark circles and wrinkles. The lasers we use each have different focuses, but they are all gentle enough to naturally heal and restore the skin around your eyes.

Depending on your unique needs, there are a handful of laser treatments to choose from. Some of our more popular lasers include:

Laser Genesis

This procedure uses non-invasive laser technology to discretely and effectively treat your facial lines and wrinkles. If you are suffering with conditions associated with premature signs of aging or sun damage, Laser Genesis can produce new and healthy collagen to replace excessive redness, large pores and uneven skin texture near and around the eyes.

Laser Genesis gently heats the upper dermis, which is found well below the skin’s surface, to stimulate the collagen to regrow healthy, more youthful-looking skin. In an average of four to six sessions, most of our patients see significant improvement to their complexion.

PicoSure

PicoSure is unique from other lasers due to its ability to transform energy into pressure—using that to gently rejuvenate skin. This laser treatment was designed to work on acne scars, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation of the skin.

Many of our patients enjoy the safety factor of PicoSure, as the conversion from laser energy to pressure ensures that the surrounding skin tissue goes unharmed. Because it uses pressure versus heat, you won’t experience any burning or tissue damage—making this the ideal laser treatment to use around the sensitive eye area.

Since this laser treatment is especially gentle, most patients require three to four sessions to effectively address their problem areas.

Fraxel II® Re:Store

The Fraxel II is another popular laser that is great for improving fine lines, pores and wrinkles, as well as reducing brown pigment and tightening the skin around the eyes.

The laser works by producing thousands of microscopic treatment zones in your skin. These zones are then removed of unwanted pigment, which in turn stimulates the collagen production and restores a healthy glow to the skin.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

Wrinkles, creases and bags beneath the eyes can age you beyond your years. If you’re ready to improve your appearance and get that needed boost of confidence, a laser treatment by Dr. Birchall or our medical team is a safe and effective way to do it.
