30-year-old woman treated with Eyelid Surgery.
This 30-year-old had severe dark circles which made her look tired and forced her to "cake on" makeup to try to hide them. Amazingly, even her two-year-old daughter had dark circles. Because of the severity of her condition, the combined three-pronged treatment was recommended. The laser was used with lower blepharoplasties and fat injection into the tear troughs (the creases under the lower lid bags) to help lighten the skin, smooth premature wrinkles, and lighten her dark freckles. Although the dark circles were not completely eliminated, there was substantial improvement.
