Laser Eye Rejuvenation as an alternative to surgery
The Madonna Lift (Madonna Eye Lift) was developed by Dr. Bruce Katz, the director of New York’s Juva Skin and Laser Center. The procedure, unlike other conventional procedures, does not require incisions as part of the treatment. Instead, a fractional laser is used to tighten and lift the skin around the eyes to create a more youthful appearance.
The Madonna Eye Lift is performed by Dr. Mir Varquez to help her patients minimize crow’s feet, wrinkles, hollows under the eyes, and even saggy upper and lower lids. The treatment is ideal for patients suffering from mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging of the skin around the eyes.
This alternative to the traditional Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) does not take the place of surgery but does prolong the need for Eyelid surgery.
Immediately after the Laser Treatment, the skin will be red, swollen and irritated for several days. Icing the area frequently will make the recovery much easier. Stay indoors during the first 3-5 days after the treatment. Day 2-3 post-procedure the skin will start to peel and the healing process begins. New collagen and elastin fibers will build over time and the results will actually look better over time. ( 3-6months after). The Madonna Eyelift is performed under local anesthesia and requires 3-5 days of downtime on average. The cost is significantly less than a Blepharoplasty and the entire procedure takes less than an hour.
