Benefits of SmoothEye laser
Fotona SmoothEye laser treatment offers several benefits for individuals looking to address signs of ageing around the eyes. Here are some of the main advantages:
- Non-Surgical: Fotona SmoothEye is a non-surgical procedure that doesn’t require any incisions or injections, making it a safe and minimally invasive option for individuals who are hesitant to undergo blepharoplasty surgery.
- No Downtime: The treatment is quick and easy, typically taking around 30 minutes to complete. There is little to no downtime required, and patients can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment.
- Reduced Wrinkles and Fine Lines: The laser energy targets the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. This results in a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful.
- Improved Skin Texture: Fotona SmoothEye also helps to improve skin texture by promoting the growth of new collagen, which can enhance the skin’s elasticity and firmness.
- Reduced Under-Eye Bags: The laser energy can also help to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags by tightening the skin and reducing fluid buildup.
- Long-Lasting Results: The results of Fotona SmoothEye can last for several months to a year, depending on the individual’s skin condition and lifestyle factors.
- Safe and Effective: Fotona SmoothEye is considered safe and effective for most individuals, with minimal risk of side effects or complications. It is important to consult with a qualified practitioner at Centre for Surgery to determine if it is the right option for your specific needs and goals.
Fotona SmoothEye vs Blepharoplasty
Fotona SmoothEye laser and blepharoplasty are two different procedures that can address different concerns around the eyes.
Fotona SmoothEye is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses a unique laser technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin around the eyes. It is suitable for those who have mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles around the eyes, but do not require surgery. This treatment has minimal downtime and does not involve any incisions or cutting.
Blepharoplasty, on the other hand, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyes. This procedure is suitable for those who have significant skin laxity, sagging, and bags under the eyes that cannot be addressed with non-invasive treatments. It requires a longer recovery time and involves incisions and sutures.
The choice between Fotona SmoothEye and blepharoplasty surgery ultimately depends on the patient’s individual concerns and goals, as well as the severity of their eye area issues. A consultation with a qualified surgeon can help determine which procedure is best suited for the patient’s needs.
Laser eyelid tightening vs eyelid surgery
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is ideal for the removal of redundant skin of the eyelid, eye bag removal and correction of puffy eyelids in patients who have significant features of ageing in the eye region. Although blepharoplasty is a definitive treatment that can take years off your appearance, it comes at the expense of incisions, scars, and risks and requires the downtime that comes with surgery. SmoothEye laser eyelid tightening is a non-invasive treatment that can tighten mild to moderate degrees of loose eyelid skin. SmoothEye is an excellent alternative to eyelid surgery for those not yet comfortable with invasive surgery. With Fotona SmoothEye, there are no incisions or scars and between 4-6 sessions can achieve impressive results. The ideal treatment depends on several factors, including the results you would like to attain, whether you are willing to commit to an extended course of treatments and whether you can commit to a period of downtime after eyelid surgery.
SmoothEye Laser Eyelid Tightening
As we naturally age, collagen production gradually diminishes and the signs of ageing increase. 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 a laser ensures the results will continue to improve over time as collagen production continues. Both upper and lower eyelids can be treated in the same sitting.
SmoothEye is a safe and effective treatment, and patients can expect to see instant results including a reduction in lines and wrinkles in the eye region fatter just 3 sessions. The treated areas will continue to improve over 3 months after the last SmoothEye treatment. Your practitioner will assess you regularly to monitor your results to ensure you get the best results possible.
Am I suitable?
Fotona SmoothEye laser is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that is suitable for a wide range of candidates. Generally, candidates who are experiencing mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging around the eyes are ideal for this treatment. Candidates who have dark circles, puffiness, or hollowness in the tear trough area may also benefit from this treatment.
SmoothEye is especially effective for patients who want to avoid the risks and downtime associated with surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty or a brow lift. It is also an excellent option for patients who have already undergone surgery but want to maintain their results or improve upon them.
The ideal candidates for SmoothEye are those who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for their results. Patients who have severe wrinkles or sagging may not be suitable for this treatment and may need to consider more invasive procedures. Additionally, candidates who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid this treatment.
It is recommended that patients schedule a consultation with a qualified provider to determine if they are a suitable candidate for SmoothEye laser treatment. The provider will evaluate the patient’s medical history, skin condition, and aesthetic goals to determine if this treatment is the best option for them.
SmoothEye Laser Eyelid Tightening
The Fotona SmoothEye laser treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that can be performed in a medical office or clinic. The procedure typically takes 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the extent of the treatment area and the number of sessions required.
The procedure involves the use of a handheld laser device that emits precise and controlled laser energy to the skin around the eyes. The laser energy is delivered to the skin through a series of micro-pulses that penetrate the dermis and stimulate collagen production. This helps to tighten and firm the skin around the eyes, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.
During the procedure, the patient may feel a warming or tingling sensation as the laser energy is delivered to the skin. However, the treatment is generally pain-free and does not require anaesthesia or numbing cream. After the treatment, the patient may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising around the treated area, but these effects typically subside within a few days.
The number of sessions required for optimal results varies depending on the patient’s skin condition, age, and aesthetic goals. However, most patients require 3-4 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve their desired results.
The Fotona SmoothEye laser treatment is a safe and effective alternative to invasive surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty or a brow lift. It can help patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance around the eyes without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.
What to Expect after SmoothEye Treatment
After the Fotona SmoothEye treatment, patients can expect some redness and swelling in the treated area. The skin may also feel warm to the touch, and there may be some mild discomfort or sensitivity. However, these side effects are typically mild and should resolve within a few days.
Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment, but they should avoid exposing the treated area to the sun and should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect the skin from UV damage.
Results from the Fotona SmoothEye treatment may be visible immediately after the procedure, but optimal results are usually achieved over a few weeks as the skin remodels and regenerates collagen. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome.
Patients should also maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep, to help maintain the results of the Fotona SmoothEye treatment.
SmoothEye Laser Before and After

What is Fotona SmoothEye?SmoothEye is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses the powerful Fotona SP Dynamis laser to tighten and rejuvenate the skin around the eyes, also known as the periocular region. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. SmoothEye treatment is performed by delivering precise non-ablative laser energy to the deeper eyelid tissues to tighten excess skin without the need for incisions or sutures.
The procedure stimulates collagen production and promotes skin tightening, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance around the eyes. SmoothEye treatment can be customized to meet individual patient needs and can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. It is a quick and painless procedure that typically takes 20-30 minutes to complete.
SmoothEye is ideal for patients who are not ready for surgical eyelid surgery or who are not suitable candidates for blepharoplasty due to medical reasons. It is also a popular choice for patients who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to surgery with little to no downtime.
SmoothEye can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox, or laser resurfacing for even more dramatic results. A consultation with a qualified cosmetic surgeon or medical professional is recommended to determine the best treatment plan for individual patients.
What are the benefits of Fotona SmoothEye?Laser eyelid tightening treatments are often sought after by people who do not wish to undergo eyelid surgery and do not wish to use injectables.
Laser treatments involve no injections or incisions and involve little to no downtime. You will be able to resume your usual daily routine straight away without having to worry about any bruising or stitches.
Am I suitable for SmoothEye?Determining if you are a suitable candidate for SmoothEye treatment requires a consultation with a qualified and experienced practitioner. Generally, individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity around the eyes and minimal excess skin are good candidates for SmoothEye treatment. Those with more significant skin laxity and excess skin may require surgical intervention such as blepharoplasty.
It is also important that individuals have realistic expectations about the results that can be achieved with SmoothEye. A consultation will allow the practitioner to assess your individual needs and determine if SmoothEye is the best treatment option for you.
Certain medical conditions or medications may make individuals unsuitable for SmoothEye treatment. It is important to disclose your medical history and current medications during your consultation.
Can Fotona SmoothEye improve saggy eyelids?Sagging eyelids are one of the most obvious signs of ageing in both men and women. The presence of sagging eyelids can be a source of psychological distress, especially when the perception exists that you feel you look older than one's actual age. Droopy eyelids can also lead to a sad or angry-looking appearance that others may remark upon. In more severe cases of eyelid sagging, functional disturbance can result from vision impairment from eyelids that droop too low.
Several factors can cause sagging eyelids, but the most significant factor is the ageing process which exerts its effects through a loss of tissue firmness. In the eyelid region, the levator muscle elevates the eyelid. Still, with ageing, the levator muscle begins to thin out, which leads to stretching of the overlying skin, and deeper fat pockets begin to herniate outwards.
Droopy eyelids are more likely to happen in some individuals as they may have a hereditary link to forming droopy eyelids. This can affect both eyelids equally, or one eyelid may be affected more than the other. Other extrinsic factors contributing to eyelid sagging or drooping include chronic sunlight exposure.
How many SmoothEye treatments are needed?The number of SmoothEye treatment sessions needed may vary depending on the individual patient's needs and goals. Typically, most patients will require a series of 3-4 treatments, spaced 3-4 weeks apart, to achieve the desired results. However, the exact number of sessions required can be determined during a consultation with a qualified practitioner, who can assess the patient's unique situation and make recommendations accordingly. It's important to note that the number of sessions required may also depend on the severity of the eyelid laxity and the patient's skin type.
Does SmoothEye Laser Hurt?SmoothEye is a non-invasive treatment and is generally well-tolerated by patients. Most patients report feeling a mild warming sensation during the procedure, but it is not typically painful. Some patients may experience slight discomfort or a mild sensation of heat, but it is usually very tolerable. Additionally, a numbing cream can be applied before the treatment to help minimize any discomfort.
Does SmoothEye require any downtime?SmoothEye treatment typically requires minimal downtime. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure. Some mild redness and swelling may occur, but this typically resolves within a few hours to a few days. It is important to avoid sun exposure and to use sunscreen during the recovery period. It is recommended to avoid heavy exercise or any activity that causes sweating for at least 24 hours after the procedure. The recovery period may vary depending on the individual and the extent of the treatment.
When will I see the end results of SmoothEye treatment?After SmoothEye treatment, you should see an immediate improvement in the tightness and texture of the skin around the treated area. However, the final results of the treatment will become more visible gradually over the next few weeks as your body's natural collagen production is stimulated. It may take up to three months to see the full results of the treatment. In some cases, multiple sessions of SmoothEye may be recommended to achieve optimal results. It is important to follow your surgeon's post-treatment instructions to ensure the best possible outcome.
