Fraxel for upper eyelid complaints

The Fraxel laser is probably not the best choice for creepiness in the upper lids. It is somewhat effective for fine lines and pigmentation however not for firming and tightening of skin. The CO2 Fractional laser treatment would be best to tighten the skin and improve the texture and tone of the eyelids.
