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 Pro 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.
At SL Aesthetic Clinic, our SmoothEye Pro treatment uses a 3-step process covering entire periocular region, including regions above, below and lateral to the eye. The total treatment duration is up to 30 minutes so as to compound the treatment efficacy. Patients’ eyes are also well protected with the use of corneal shield prior to treatment.
How Does Skin Around The Eyes Age?
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 Pro Laser Help Treat My Eye Bags?
Our Fotona SP Dynamis Pro Laser System utilises 3 different laser technologies to in the Fotona SmoothEye Pro 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 some cases.
