Fotona laser removal of bags under the eyes is a non-invasive Er:YAG laser procedure that tightens the skin and smoothes fine wrinkels around the eyes.

What is Fotona Smile Eye?

This is an effective procedure intended specifically for those who wish to remove bags under the eyes in a non-surgical way, without scars and recovery. Removal of bags under the eyes brings out the facial features of the person, providing youthfulness and energy.

Due to major progress over the past few years, this innovative laser treatment for under eye bags uses two 4D lasers: a laser which stimulates skin collagen and a gentle laser which resurfaces the skin. The laser procedure is performed on the inner lining of the eyelid to tighten and reduce the bags under the eyes.

What causes the bags under the eyes?

As a person gets older, the retraction of the skin around the eyes begins to be hindered by the fatty tissue i.e. hernia that forms under the skin. This is mostly due to age-related laxity of the orbicularis oculi muscles.

Morning puffiness of the eyes is also caused by weakened superficial blood circulation in the skin around the eyes and ineffective removal of residues. The contributing factors to bags under the eyes are fatigue, excessive sleeping, excessive fluid intake at night and alcohol.

Other factors that may cause the swelling, such as allergies (from unsuitable eye cream, etc.), eye infections, heart or kidney diseases, must be considered and ruled out.

What is the procedure of the Fotona Smile Eye undereye bag removal?

Before the procedure, numbing and moisturizing eye drops are applied to reduce the feeling of discomfort. For comfort and eye protection purposes, special high-quality eye protection against laser is used.

When the eye protection has been applied, the deeper layers of the skin of the lower eyelids are warmed at 42-45°C by means of the laser, stimulating the contraction of collagen, the activity of fibroblasts and tightening the skin around the eyes. Holding the temperature for only a few minutes means immediate contraction of collagen, which in turn stimulates the activity of fibroblasts.

Fotona's innovative technology, named SMOOTH, allows laser energy to penetrate under-eye bags, reducing fat deposits and tightening sagging under-eye skin. Laser pulses stimulate the production of new collagen, resulting in a noticeable improvement in the elasticity and quality of the skin around the eyes.

When will I see the results?

Due to the specific nature of the treatment for removing under-eye bags, the number of procedures required depends on the natural reaction of each person. On average, we recommend repeating the procedure 3 times at one-month intervals. However, many people notice positive results immediately after the first procedure due to the collagen contraction.

How long will it take to recover?

Fotona laser removal of under-eye bags is a quick procedure that requires no recovery and is suitable for people who do not have time for bruising and swelling.
