Smoking, lack of sleep and poor nutrition lead to early aging, puffiness and damaged veins around the eyes. Aesthetically very disturbing under eye circles arise and the skin around the eyes is one of the first to reveal your lifestyle and to draw attention to your actual age.

Sensitive skin around the eyes requires careful and gentle treatments that do not have after-effects and at the same time effectively tighten the aging skin. One of the most appropriate and effective methods for reducing under eye circles is the use of Fotona laser. Not only it allows precise treatment, the process is non-invasive and does not require any surgical intervention.

No cuts, no scars, no input of chemical substances into your body

Laser reduction of under eye circles is suitable for all those who want to improve their look without surgery and do not want to introduce chemical substances such as Botox and hyaluronic acid in their bodies. Using laser, the redundant aged skin under the eyes can be smoothed out and significantly tightened to ensure youthful appearance of the skin.

Laser smoothing of eye wrinkles is also suitable for patients who:

  • refuse surgical interventions,
  • had undergone a surgery but still want to have the area around their eyes more strengthened and smoothed out,
  • use Botox, but want to have their skin even smoother,
  • use hyaluronic acid, but still want to improve the appearance of the skin around their eyes.

Mechanism of laser operation

Laser treatment of under eye circles is performed by supplying energy in repeated millisecond pulses to warm up deeper layers of the skin to a temperature between 42 and 45 °C.

The raise of temperature in the tissue accelerates new collagen formation, and consequently the skin becomes tighter and smoother.

Fast and painless recovery

The procedure of laser elimination of under eye circles does not include any surgical intervention; according to patients,  laser treatment gives lightly stinging sensation, or as if ants  were crawling over the skin.

Equally friendly are the after effects, as there are no scars, puffiness or pain.

Only a slight swelling or a slight redness of the treated skin can be noticed, but it disappears within one to two days; sometimes dry skin can occur, but it disappears within five days.

Simple care after treatment

Seven to ten days after treatment it is important to protect the area around your eyes using sunglasses and a factor 50 sunscreen.

How many treatments are needed?

It is advisable to undergo four treatments in intervals of two to three weeks.
The results of the laser reduction of under eye circles are most evident one month after the last treatment.

Laser combined with other treatments

The laser reduction of under eye circles is an independent method to reduce wrinkles under your eyes. However, to achieve optimal results it can be combined with other treatments such as Botox and hyaluronic acid.

The most suitable method to eliminate under eye wrinkles and their possible combinations are discussed with each patient separately in our consulting room.
