Blepharoplasty is an aesthetic surgical procedure that corrects/modifies defects, deformities or disfiguration of the eyelids. It involves excision, removal and/or repositioning of excess tissue and reinforcement of the muscle and tendon tissues. Patients undergo blepharoplasty procedures in order to restore functionality of the eyelids and improve the appearance of the eye-region of the face.
Laser blepharoplasty refers to the usage of a laser instead of a scalpel during surgery. The advantage of using a laser over a scalpel is that there is significantly less bleeding and bruising as the laser coagulates the blood as it cuts. Laser blepharoplasty is often combined with laser eyelid resurfacing, as the two procedures are complementary and can be performed in conjunction.
The Ultrapulse fractional CO2 solution
The ultrapulse fractional CO2 offers a complete laser blepharoplasty solution that combines an incisional solution with complementary eyelid resurfacing. The AcuPulse™ as well as the UltraPulse™ systems have an incisional handpiece that provides excellent surgical precision during treatment. With laser assisted incisions, bleeding during the procedure as well as post-surgery bruising are reduced. The systems are also equipped with fractional ablative skin resurfacing modes that offer excellent skin rejuvenation results in the surrounding periorbital areas.
