At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic we offer one of the most effective laser skin technologies in the industry– Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing with Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) Therapy using the SmartXide DOT™ CO2 laser system. This revolutionary technology not only rejuvenates the skin, eliminating wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks, acne, and other scars but also has the unique ability to perform a fractional eye lift known as The Madonna. This is a non-surgical alternative to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lift the eyebrow for a younger look to the eye. The Madonna Lift improves drooping skin, wrinkles, and those telltale signs of aging around the eyes. This fractional CO2 laser technology has been used to perform a host of functions, including skin resurfacing and the treatment of acne scars. Now it can give men and women a younger look by rejuvenating the skin around your eyes including the eyelids.
Using DOT Therapy, only a fraction of the skin is treated at a time. This advanced CO2 laser uses specially modulated beams of light to penetrate into the skin. These beams of light, about the width of a human hair, destroy and contract the old collagen within the wrinkles. As a result, the body’s natural wound healing process creates new, youthful collagen in the skin plumping and tightening the wrinkles around the eyes. Wrinkles and pigmentation are eliminated during a Madonna Lift, and the skin is tightened. A study of over 300 patients showed consistent, satisfying results from the fractional eyelift – including reduced dark circles, elimination of eye wrinkles, and tighter eyelid skin.
If you have any of the following cosmetic problems, a Madonna Lift may be right for you:
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow’s feet
- Dark circles
- Drooping eyebrows
At Dermaworks, your safety is our number one priority. During the treatment, your eyes will be entirely covered with protective shields allowing for safe treatment of the lids and brow area. The fractional laser works well on darker skin in most cases. However, to be safe, we will perform a test spot on the eyelid area to ensure there is no change in pigmentation. The only issue that a Madonna Lift cannot address is bulging fat pads in the eye area.Results will be seen immediately and continue to improve in the coming months. The number of treatments needed will vary from person to person, but typically three to five treatments is necessary with treatments spaced 4-12 weeks apart.
The Madonna Lift is an in-office procedure that requires pre and post-treatment medications to ensure proper healing and comfort during the procedure. Prior to the treatment, we will apply a topical freezing anesthetic. After the first day your skin may be extremely red and it’s very important to follow the post-treatment instructions given to you by Dr. Vassiliou. Upon leaving you will be asked to book a two week follow-up appointment.
The Madonna lift is relatively non-invasive, painless procedure that can offer younger looking eyes after just a few treatment sessions.
