The skin around the eyes (periocular skin) is 10 times thinner than the rest of your facial skin. Because of this, your periocular skin is more susceptible to developing signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. The natural aging process and UV damage break down collagen, resulting in even thinner skin and more wrinkles over time. This process makes the eyelids one of the first areas to show aging signs.

If you suffer from wrinkles and loose skin around your eyes, SmoothEye® might be the solution for you.

What Is SmoothEye Treatment?

SmoothEye is a non-invasive Er:YAG laser treatment by Fotona medical laser company. This 30-minute treatment effectively tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles around the eyes. Precision control makes this procedure extremely safe and gentle on your delicate periocular skin and offers a comfortable treatment.

What Can SmoothEye Treat?

  • Loose skin around the eyes
  • Crow’s feet wrinkles
  • Crepey eyelid skin with fine wrinkles
  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Bags and puffiness beneath the eyes

How Does SmoothEye Laser Treatment Work?

The laser device emits energy in a long pulse sequence, which evenly heats the tissue in the treatment area. The heat stimulates a natural wound-repair process that promotes the production of new collagen and tissue remodeling.

This healing process results in improved skin elasticity, volume and thickness in the periocular region, which produces a more youthful, refreshed and alert eye appearance.

Is SmoothEye Painful?

Most patients report that this treatment is very comfortable and the laser feels like a gentle, warm tapping against their skin. A topical anesthetic is first applied to further improve your comfort.

What Is Recovery Like After SmoothEye?

Because this treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, meaning it does not break the skin, minimal to no downtime is needed to recover. You may want to take it easy for a day or so, but you can resume your everyday schedule as usual. However, it is imperative to keep your treated skin out of direct sunlight for at least the first week.

How Many SmoothEye Treatments Are Recommended?

We generally recommend patients start with a series of three treatments. Treatment can be undergone once every four weeks. In most cases, ideal results are achieved with this series. If you have dramatic signs of aging around the eyes, more treatments may be needed to see your desired results.

Can I Combine Other Treatments With SmoothEye?

Yes, you may want to combine SmoothEye with another treatment if you have multiple areas of concern. Issues like dark spots, facial wrinkles, enlarged pores and other signs of aging can be addressed with med spa services like chemical peels, microneedling and dermal fillers.

During your consultation, talk to your specialist about your goals, and they can recommend the best treatment(s) to combine with SmoothEye to reveal a more vibrant, youthful complexion.
