At a Glance
Our eyes are often one of the more prominent areas which can show signs of ageing. It can also be one of the more difficult areas to treat. Surgery can involve a long recovery period, while other non-surgical procedures may not deliver the desired results. The solution is SmoothEye.
Centre for Surgery uses Fotona’s SmoothEye treatment, which softens the appearance of wrinkles, tightening the skin and making it look more youthful.
As we naturally age, the production of collagen reduces and the signs of ageing increases.
SmoothEye works to stimulate the production of collagen around the eyes. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase skin laxity, leaving you with a more rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.
Using laser ensures the results will continue to improve over time as the collagen production continues.
You will be a suitable candidate if you are showing signs of ageing around the eyes and are wishing to improve your aesthetic appearance.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Before undergoing SmoothEye you will need to have a consultation with one of our surgeons. They will be able to assess whether or not you are considered a suitable candidate for this procedure or whether there are alternative options which are better suited for you.
SmoothEye is performed as a day procedure. You will be able to return back to your usual daily routine straight after the procedure.
SmoothEye uses Fotona’s SP Dynamis laser which has an Nd:YAG wavelength.
The laser is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin, which increases the production of collagen. Over time, this reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Prior to undergoing laser treatment, a topical anaesthetic may be applied to reduce any discomfort.
You may wish to combine this treatment with other non-surgical procedures to achieve the best results.
This is a non-invasive procedure, so there is minimal downtime. You will be able to resume your usual activities straight away.
You may experience some tightening and redness of the skin after the procedure, which will settle after the first few days.
It may take a few weeks to start seeing results as the collagen is stimulated. Results will continue to improve over time.
You may wish to avoid excess sun and heat exposure for seven to 10 days to ensure you can achieve the best results.
What is SmoothEye?SmoothEye is a non-invasive procedure which aims to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.

Can I have SmoothEye treatment?SmoothEye is suitable for those who show signs of ageing around the eyes but do not wish to resort to surgical treatments.
Will I need repeat treatments?You will need at least three treatments to achieve the best results. This may vary from person to person and your surgeon will be able to advise you on your best treatment plan.
Will laser hurt?You will have a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the skin prior to treatment to help minimise any discomfort. You may be able to feel some heat during treatment, however this will not be unbearable.
What will the recovery be like?There is minimal recovery period associated with SmoothEye.
You may notice redness and tightness on the skin; this will only last a few days.
When will I notice results?Unlike other treatments, laser treatments do not have immediate results. Lasers stimulate the collagen which slowly produces results. It may be a few weeks before you can start to see noticeable changes, which will continue to improve over time.
