Once an assessment of the problems and a detailed evaluation of the patient have been carried out, the medical team will proceed through the following steps:
- An anesthetic will be administered and eye shields will be fixed in place.
- The doctor will then assess the eyes. If there is an issue with the bags under the eyes, the doctor will initially target the internal tissue with the laser. However, if no problems are found to be affecting the bags under the eyes, the doctor will begin by:
- Lasering to freshen and brighten up the skin around the eyes – 3 times.
- Lasering to tighten and firm the skin around the eyes – 3 times.
- Lasering to reduce wrinkles around the eyes – 2 times.
- The doctor will then remove the eye shields and administer anti-inflammatory medication together with medication to prevent infection. Finally, the doctor will once again assess the state of the patient’s eyes before allowing him or her to return home.
The number of treatments a patient may require depends on the results of each individual treatment. For best results, treatment should be carried out 4–6 times at intervals of 2–4 weeks (depending on the condition of the skin around the eye of the patient). For long-lasting effects, repeat treatments can be carried out annually.
