CO2 Laser for the Eyelids?

How do you decide if you are a good candidate for fractionated CO2 laser to tighten the eyelid skin and reduce wrinkles? Those who will benefit the most are usually between 40-60, have a mild to moderate amount of loose skin and do not have deep hollows under the eyes. The laser improves dark circles somewhat. Expect to get best results with 1-3 treatments depending on the amount of loose skin.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
