Periorbital Laser Resurfacing

  • Douglas G. HamiltonEmail author


The use of laser resurfacing in the periorbital area is a valuable tool for the correction of rhytids and lower lid cutaneous laxity. CO2 lasers were introduced in 1990 and soon became the primary nonsurgical treatment option for lower lid laxity and rhytids. Other technologies such as erbium and fractionated lasers with better safety profile have followed. Despite the advances of less invasive technology, Ultrapulsated CO2 lasers remain the gold standard in the treatment of lower lid rhytids. The protocols for treatment with the Ultrapulsated CO2 laser and non-invasive fractionated laser are described.
