What is CO2 laser eyelid rejuvenation?

CO2 LASER eyelid rejuvenation, also known as non invasive eyelid tightening, is the use of CO2 laser technology to improve the wrinkles and moderate skin excess of both the upper and lower eyelids.

How and where is the procedure done?

The procedure is done at our ReNova Wexford facility. It is done under topical anesthesia. The duration of the procedure is about 20-30 minutes. It is done as an outpatient procedure.

Can I plan on doing the surgery before any events or special occasions?

No. Though CO2 laser eyelid rejuvenation is a well-tolerated procedure, you will have swelling that will be present for 1 week. Plan ahead when considering the date of your surgery.

Do I need to have any stitches removed?

The answer is NO. When performing CO2 laser eyelid rejuvenation, we will use this last generation laser to favor tightening of the tissues by bringing new collagen. There is no need for incisions or stitches.

How is the post-op recovery?

Following your CO2 laser eyelid rejuvenation, you should plan for the following:

  • 1 week off from work if non-physical
  • No need for narcotic medication
  • No drains
  • Swelling for 1 week
  • Minimal or NO bruising
  • Exercise: resume activities at 1 week
  • Follow-up appointments at: one week, 6 weeks, 6 months and 1 year

What complications could occur?

When performing blepharoplasty, some of the possible complications related to the procedure are:

  • Prolonged swelling
  • Need for a second procedure depending on the severity of your wrinkles and skin redundancy
