Technique created and perfected by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra for 20 years
Since 1995, Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses the carbon dioxide laser to rejuvenate and tighten the skin of the upper and lower eyelids. The fat bags of the upper eyelids generate weight in the upper eyelid, producing an expression of tiredness, sadness and old age.
Laser eyelid treatment
Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra removes the fat bags from the upper eyelids through a minimal incision in the internal angle of the eyelids. This incision does not need to be sutured, it closes alone
The fat bags of the lower eyelids are removed through an incision in the conjunctiva, which also closes by itself.
The advantage of this technique is that it does not produce any damage of anatomical structures, does not leave scars and does not produce the complications that are so frequently seen with the conventional technique such as sclera show and ectropion. The skin of the upper and lower eyelids is rejuvenated with Carbon Dioxide Laser.
The skin will recover from the action of the laser on an average of 3 to 7 days.
Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra chooses the energy to be used according to the degree of aging of the skin and socio-occupational needs. If it is a young patient with little laxity in 3 days will be working. In the other hand, the patient has a lot of laxity and can leave his activity 7 to 10 days, more energy is used to obtain a greater rejuvenation.
The use of energy is a factor that is always talked about beforehand with the patient.
Today, Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra is using Ultrasound, HIFU, in patients who need immediate recovery.
The rejuvenation of the skin obtained by the action of the carbon dioxide laser can be checked in a week, and the improvement continues for 90 days and the effect is lasting for many years.
