Laser Resurfacing of the Periorbital Region
02 June 2008 (online)
Laser skin resurfacing of the periorbital region can be performed as an isolated procedure, as part of a full-face resurfacing, or as an adjunct to procedures such as transconjunctival blepharoplasty. The two wavelengths in common use are pulsed carbon dioxide and erbium: yttrium aluminum garnet. The principles and techniques of using these lasers for periorbital resurfacing, as well as the practice of combining these wavelengths in sequence, are described. In addition, pre- and postprocedure measures are discussed.
