Summary:
Dear Dr. Seckel, Is eyelid rejuvenation the same as reducing circles and

Dear Florence,

Thank you very much for your inquiry about eyelid rejuvenation.

The short answer to your question is yes, eyelid rejuvenation refers to
the correction of loose skin, puffiness and dark circles under the eye
which makes a person look tired.

Some patients who only have wrinkles and old looking skin can be made to
look much better with a Laserlyte peel also called an ActiveFX Laser Peel
and Botox. We are the only center in Boston who has experience with this
eyelid rejuvenation technique. The Laserlyte peel or Active-FX Peel with
the Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore CO2 Lyte is the newest and best technology
available.

Most patients however need an eyelid rejuvenation procedure called a
blepharoplasty to make the lower eyelid look refreshed and young.
I also use the laser to do this procedure and use a modern technique
called a transconjunctival laser blepharoplasty which involves a tiny
incision on the inside of the eyelid to correct the aging changes. The
benefit is that there is no visible scar on the outside of the eyelid and
the natural shape of the eyelid is not changed.

Most other Plastic Surgeons do this operation through a scalpel incision
on the outside of the eyelid which leaves a scar and changes the shape of
the eyelid.

Finally, to remove dark circles under the eyes we do a procedure called
an arcus marginalis release and fat grafting or tear trough implant to
plump up the dark circle. This is a new technique and is also done
through the inside transconjunctival incision.

I would be delighted to offer you a complimentary consultation in Boston
to discuss your situation.

Please call Michele at 617-262-2208 if you would like to come in for a
consultation.

Sincerely,
Dr Seckel
