Treatments for Under Eyes
Thank you for your question. It is best recommended to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist for best treatment plan. Broken capillaries can be treated with a YAG 1064, hydrating under eye area will help with the lines in combination of CO2 or Fraxel. And wearing daily SPF 30 with zinc. I hope this helps!
Laser resurfacing for damaged skin under the eyes
Yes, Fraxel helps with this problem. Laser resurfacing in general does a
remarkable job to help lift and tighten the under eyes in certain patients.
Another recommendation is a CO2 laser resurfacing, depending on how aggressive
we would need to be. Peels can provide
some benefit in mild cases.
Under Eye Winkles and Best Treatment
Many patients have wrinkles under the eyes and this is usually the first sign of aging. Your question sounds as if you had a burn and now have increased capillary fragility. To treat the blood vessels you can use a pulsed dye laser and this will markedly reduce those vessels. However, since you had a burn I would not recommend that you have Fraxel to that area. The eMatrix is a color- blind laser and is best treated to this eye area, especially when there is already a history such as you have experienced. It takes 3 treatments scheduled one month apart for the best results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these lasers for the best cosmetic results.
IPL uses light energy that is focused on darker areas
as well as vessels and that is how it improves and evens out skin tone.
It is not uncommon to get hyperpigmentation if you are exposed to the sun after you had IPL
treatment. It is called inflammatory hyperpigmentation and is usually treated early and aggressively with
topical treatment such as a topical steroid hydroquinone. If your doctor
is not able to treat this problem, seek out
another expert in this area but hyperpigmentation can happen and does not have
to be the result of a burn.
Cutera Laser Treatment For Broken Capillaries
Thank you for your question. I use
Cutera laser treatment for broken capillaries. Broken capillaries appear as
red, bruise-like spots on the skin, which can occur anywhere on the body, but
they are particularly noticeable on the face. Capillaries, are tiny veins under
the surface of the skin that are very delicate and can break easily. It is important that your skin condition is
properly diagnosed as broken capillaries before proceeding with any treatment.
Other skin complications can sometimes look like broken capillaries, but can be
an indication of a bigger problem. During the examination, the doctor will look
at your skin and review your medical history in order to recommend the best
treatment possible. I advise you to speak with a dermatologist before
considering a specific treatment.
As we age, the
skin around our eyes becomes thin and wrinkled. The procedure I most often
recommend to help patients age gracefully in this area is known as the Madonna Lift. This procedures treats
around the entire eye with CO2 Laser, which is great for skin resurfacing;
smoothing the texture, evening the pigment and stimulating collagen in the
treated area(s). The Madonna Lift is performed in a series of 3-5 treatments. I
would consult with a qualified physician for a comprehensive consultation. Good
