What are the procedures specialists use to rejuvenate eyes?

Addressing key elements of aging will give a balanced, natural outcome to eye rejuvenation. Dermatologists combine lasers with soft tissue fillers, peels, muscle relaxants, skin tighten devices & minor surgical procedures. 

Lasers are great for improving skin laxity, wrinkles & textural changes. They can address dull skin & improve optical luminosity. 

What are the common types of lasers we use to rejuvenate the eye area?

The choice depends on your concerns, clinical finding & expectations. As a guide-



  • Late 20’s to late 30’s: Clear + Brilliant, Pico lasers, Dermal toning lasers
  • Early 40s to 50s: Fractional 1927 lasers, CO2 fractional lasers
  • 50s’ to 60s: CO2 & Erbium lasers, Hybrid laser resurfacing
  • Beyond 60: CO2 laser resurfacing.

How many sessions will I need?

In most cases we get the job done in 1-2 sessions. The exception is if we use gentle fractional lasers. This low downtime method requires 3-4 sessions. 



  • Fractional lasers: 3-4 for ideal results. 3-day recovery
  • Hybrid laser resurfacing: 1-2 sessions. 6-day recovery

CO2 or Erbium fully ablative lasers: 1 treatment only. 9-day recovery

Laser resurfacing provides the most effective method of collagen regeneration. Our specialists employ over 35 different types of lasers, ranging from gentle fractional devices, through to fully ablative CO2 lasers for deep wrinkling.

What to do first, filler or laser resurfacing?

We prefer laser resurfacing first. Why? Because we want to tighten skin before adding soft tissue fillers. This allows for better, more accurate results. 

When do we perform surgery over lasers?

Tixel is a form of skin resurfacing using controlled heating. Tixel can improve dark circles associated with skin laxity. Tixel can treat the upper and lower eyelids, with downtime ranging from 1-4+ days.  It is best suited for mild to moderate laxity. 

What is Tixel resurfacing?

Can eye creams help?

Marginal gains can be seen in cases of vascular & pigment causes of dark eye circles. 



  • Vascular mediators include vitamin K, & caffeine. 
  • Pigment correctors include ascorbic acid, argan, & arbutin.
  • Dehydration can be corrected with hyaluronic acid. 

What are the risks & side effects of laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a safe procedure; however, side effects are occasionally seen. These are proportional to the depth & density of lasers. These include-



  • Persistent redness for greater than 6 weeks
  • Post treatment pigmentation 
  • Scarring < 3% of cases
  • Infection < 2% of cases

Why is the eye area more than just the eye area?

Dermatologists have an all-encompassing approach to the eye area – namely to look at the quality of the skin, dermal & subcutaneous laxity. Add to this volume loss of the fat compartments & bone loss of the orbit. 


The eye area starts in the forehead & temple, incorporates the eyebrow & follows a C-shaped area below the eye to form the lateral, mid & medial cheek. It covers everything from volume, through the relationship of the lids to the pupils, lid margins to the fold & brows.


Bespoke rejuvenation is not just with a laser. Lasers only contract skin & improve skin quality. Hence optimal results can only be achieved by a unified treatment plan. Hence, we apply a combination of –



  • Soft tissue dermal fillers for volume loss
  • Muscle relaxants for reduced tone
  • Lasers for collagen contraction
  • Surgery to correct laxity
