The Madonna Lift Featured on The Dr’s
Using the latest fractional laser resurfacing technology, Dr. Pratt is trained to implement this new procedure which is safe and effective with minimal downtime. It takes away dark rings and wrinkles, tightens upper and lower eyelid skin, and helps elevate drooping eyebrows. It has a good number of the benefits of a surgical eyelift without the risks and downtime. The only problem it doesn’t address is bulging fat pads. As metal eye shields are used during the procedure, there is no risk of injury to the eyes. Only a numbing cream is applied to the eyelids for anesthesia, and three to five sessions are recommended at 2-3 week intervals.
With fractional laser resurfacing, the laser beam is broken into microscopic columns of laser light. When the beams strike, they leave normal surrounding skin areas intact, so the outcome is very quick healing. These columns of laser light take away (or ablate) old, damaged collagen and elastic fibers so that new fresh tissue can grow into these channels. As this occurs, wrinkles and pigmentation are removed, skin tightens, and the eyelids are rejuvenated. A recent study in over 300 patients showed consistent and very impressive results.
What is the Madonna Lift?
The Madonna Lift is a new type of laser eyelift. It uses an innovative fractional CO2 laser which creates tiny microscopic channels in the tissue so that new collagen can grow to rejuvenate the skin.
What does the Madonna Lift do?
It dramatically reduces the appearance of dark rings and wrinkles while tightening eyelid skin and elevating drooping eyebrows.
How does the Madonna Lift work?
It works by using a new fractional CO2 laser technology. Laser beam-like columns are created in the skin while leaving surrounding tissue intact. These beams eradicate damaged collagen and elastic fibers so that fresh skin with renewed elasticity can grow back in its place. Because only a “fraction” of the skin is affected, healing is very quick and virtually painless. Therefore, it mimics the results previously realized only through eyelid surgery, without the risks and downtime!
How do I know if I’m a candidate?
If you have wrinkles around the eyes, loose eyelid skin, crow’s feet, dark circles, or drooping eyebrows, you are a candidate.
Do you have to be a certain age?
Age is not an issue. It depends on the changes around the eyes.
Will the laser work on darker skin?
In most cases, it works very well on darker skin. However, to be on the safe side, we do a test spot eyelid area first to be sure there is no change in pigmentation.
Do I have to stay out of the sun prior to laser treatment?
No. But you should wear sunscreen after the Madonna Lift as is the case after any laser treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions depends on the individual changes present. On average, most people need between 3-5 sessions.
How long in between each treatment?
We usually space sessions at 2-3 week intervals.
How many days of downtime?
Most people are a little red and puffy for a day or two. However, you can apply make-up right after the treatment to hide redness.
How long will the results last?
As new collagen is produced, we expect the results to last for at least several years. But as the technology is so new, it is difficult to be sure at this point.
Are there any other treatments and/or injectables I should be using to prolong my results (such as Botox®)?
Botox® can be injected after the Madonna Lift to help prolong the results.
Most people are a little red and puffy for a day or two. However, you can apply make-up right after the treatment to hide redness. You will need to wear sunscreen diligently to protect against exposure to the sun as this can cause hyperpigmentation and minimize the effects of the procedure.
What is the Cost of a Madonna Lift in Charlotte?
