The eyes and areas around the eyes are probably one of the most important aesthetic regions in the human body. As the saying goes, our eyes are the windows to our soul. A pair of lively bright eyes instantly make anyone look more youthful and better.

Conversely, problems such as skin loosening, dark eye circles, tear trough, eye bags, eyelids puffiness and droopy eyebrows cause one to look more tired and older.
Fotona SmoothEye™ is a non-invasive laser treatment for the tightening and reduction of wrinkles around the eyes. It is an effective treatment for patients who wish to improve their eye bags non-surgically and non-invasively. Improving the skin around the eyes and reducing eye bags help one looks younger and more refreshed.
As one grows older, some age-related changes around the eyes become apparent. The brows start to sag and the upper eyelids start to become droopy, especially at the outer parts. The lower eyelid skin becomes loose and wrinkly, eye bags start to look more prominent and a deep groove called the tear trough starts to form.
These changes invariably affect all of us and is due to the loss of collagen in the skin, loosening of structures which hold the fat pads in place and receding of the orbital bone.
Our Fotona SP Dynamis Pro Laser System utilises 3 different laser technologies to in the Fotona SmoothEye treatment for the eyes.
SMOOTH® mode delivers energy precisely into the skin in controlled micro pulses. Delivering a sequence of laser energy pulses allows us to penetrate the deep dermis and eye bag to stimulate collagen and shrink the eye bag fat. This patented technology is used to improve the upper eyelid, lower eyelid and the eye bag from the lower eyelid conjunctiva side.
Depending on the severity of the problem, a second laser called FRAC3 mode can be used concurrently to achieve greater rejuvenation of the eyelid skin. A third laser mode called PIANO mode can be used to reduce the appearance of eye bags from the outside for some cases.
Depending on the severity of the condition, a complete course of SmoothEye™ treatment consists of a minimum of two to three sessions at an interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments.
Most patients opt for yearly maintenance to retain a youthful look as the natural ageing progresses.
With topical anaesthetic cream, most patients find SmoothEye™ to be a comfortable treatment which takes around 30 to 45 minutes per treatment. There is little downtime post-procedure and is a gentle way to improve the skin around the eye area.
Your eyes will be covered during the whole treatment. During the procedure, you will feel a warm sensation over your upper and lower eyelids which is well tolerated. The whole process should take no more than 30 – 45 minutes. The eye shields will be removed after the treatment and a moisturiser will be applied to the treated areas.

At SL Aesthetic Clinic, the price of Fotona SmoothEye Laser starts from $1,600 per session.

Having graduated from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine – Dr Gabriel Wong worked in several hospitals in Singapore where he honed his medical acumen.
Fate was at work when he met Dr Kelvin Chua, which sparked his interest in aesthetic medicine.
Growing from strength to strength under the tutelage of Dr Chua, Gabriel developed an eye for detail and beauty – perfectly in tune with aesthetic medicine, a confluence of art and science.
He applies this in a range of non-invasive procedures such as Botox treatments, soft tissue augmentation (Dermal Fillers with the Cannula Method), skin rejuvenation with lasers (Fotona5D Laser Lift), and effective acne and acne scar treatments (Fractional CO2 Laser, subcision).
In his free time, Gabriel loves to travel in search of that perfect snapshot. His works of art have won praises by many patients.
