As we begin to grow older, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity, causing loose folds to form upon our upper eyelids, and prompting bags or deep creases to develop beneath our lower eyelids. This mixture of puffiness, wrinkles, and deep lines around the eyes has a significant effect upon how old we look. Typically, our eyes are one of the first features other individuals notice when they meet us, and they can play a huge part in how youthful we appear.
As the eyelid skin begins to stretch and sag with age, excess wrinkles and gathering fat can provoke unwanted alterations in appearance and expression which can cause us to look older than we are. Luckily, highly skilled and talented surgeons such as Dr. Shoib A. Myint specialize in the revitalizing art of eyelid surgery. Using the latest techniques, including Pelleve and CO2 laser resurfacing, Myint Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery could take years from your appearance, and leave you looking as young as you feel.
What is Pelleve?
Pelleve is utilized as a form of wrinkle treatment and skin tightening procedure with very few side effects whatsoever. Approved by the federal drug administration of the United States in 2009, it is a laser based treatment that gives expert surgeons such as Dr. Myint precise and detailed control in delivering heat to the necessary features on the face, as well as cutting with extreme accuracy. Used most regularly on the corners of the eyelids to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, this particular kind of treatment can be ideal in combination with blepharoplasty for individuals who want to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful visage.
Using advanced radio frequency technology, this treatment emits electromagnetic waves into deeper layers of the dermal tissue, utilizing heat as a way of creating collagen contraction. As old collagen is broken down, new collagen will begin to form and tighten in the loose skin and fatty areas around the eyes, causing the skin to appear smoother without any unnecessary damage.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Aside from Pelleve, CO2 laser resurfacing can be another way to help you reduce blemishes, scars, and wrinkles upon your face. With a precise level of control, experts such as Dr. Myint can carefully target the delicate areas of your face to provide the best possible results. The newest version of laser resurfacing available on the market today uses short pulses of CO2 light energy, or continuous beams that accurately remove slim layers of skin from your face with as little heat damage as possible.
By removing the old skin, new, younger skin is encouraged to form, and with a recovery time of as little as two weeks, you could be looking more youthful than ever in no time at all. Cosmetic surgeons have utilized CO2 laser resurfacing for years in the treatment of various skin issues, including scars, enlarged oil glands on the nose and wrinkles, and it can be an ideal in combination with blepharoplasty for amazing results.
