Dr. Zoumalan safely performs the latest in laser technology to remove fine and deep wrinkles around the eyelid and face while minimizing postoperative swelling and pain. There are various lases platforms available on the market for laser resurfacing, and Dr. Zoumalan uses the latest and safest platform. It is a fractionated laser (ActiveFX, Lumenis Aesthetic) which is ideal for the treatment of fine lines, uneven texture, dyschromia and actinic keratosis. Collimated, nonsequential scanning delivers high effect, low-downtime, single pass laser skin resurfacing. This allows for faster recovery and decreased redness and discomfort than patients underwent from prior laser platforms.
Dr. Zoumalan often employs laser resurfacing in his aesthetic eyelid blepharoplasties. The herniated fat pockets can often be removed by a transconjunctival blepharoplasty (hidden incision) and laser resurfacing can address the fine wrinkles. By combining both modalities, the patient has an incredibly pleasing result while minimizing downtime and the incidence of complications.
