"The Madonna Lift" fractional eyelift procedure, pioneered by Bruce Katz, M.D. of New York's Juva Skin & Laser Center, uses fractional CO2 laser resurfacing technology to replace traditional eyelid surgery.
(PRWEB) September 23, 2009 -- Bruce Katz, M.D. of Juva Skin and Laser Center, working with fractional CO2 technology previously used for fractional laser resurfacing treatments, has pioneered "The Madonna Lift," a new fractional eyelift procedure that acts as a safe and effective alternative to traditional eyelid surgery. Since receiving FDA clearance in 2004, fractional laser resurfacing has benefited millions of patients. The Madonna Lift will increase that number.
Fractional CO2 works by using laser beam-like columns, targeting a very specific area while leaving surrounding tissue intact. These beams eradicate damaged fibers in the skin and encourage new tissue with fresh elasticity to grow back in its place. Because the whole of the skin is not affected, healing is quick and far less painful than other procedures.
"The Madonna fractional eyelift dramatically reduces the appearance of dark circles and eye wrinkles, tightens upper and lower eyelid skin, and helps to elevate drooping eyebrows," said Dr. Katz. "It has a number of the benefits of a surgical eyelift without the risks and downtime. The only problem it doesn't address is bulging fat pads.
Metal eye shields are used during treatment to protect a patient's eyes from injury. The only anesthesia needed for the procedure is a numbing cream that is applied to the eyelids; as a result, downtime is minimal.
"A recent study of fractional eyelifts involving more than 100 participants showed dramatic and consistent results," added Dr. Katz. "In order to achieve the best results from the Madonna Lift, I would recommend between three and five sessions, delivered at two- to three-week intervals."
