Fotona SmoothEye Non-surgical Laser Eye Bag Removal

Remove eyebags with Fotona SmoothEye Laser at SL Aesthetic Clinic

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.

What is Fotona SmoothEye Laser?

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.

How does skin around the eyes age?

How does Fotona SmoothEye Laser work?

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.

How does Fotona SmoothEye Laser help treat my eye bags?

Our Fotona SP Dynamis Pro Laser System utilises 3 different laser technologies to in the Fotona SmoothEye treatment for the eyes.

Fotona Smooth mode for eye bags

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.

Fotona SmoothEye FRAC3 and PIANO

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.


How many sessions of Fotona SmoothEye Laser do I need?

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.

Is there any downtime with Fotona SmoothEye?

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.

What can I expect during a Fotona SmoothEye treatment?

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.
