Is there a risk to getting laser after a lower bleph?


Hello! I recently had a lower bleph to remove excess skin and fat. When my eyes are at rest, they look incredible. However, when I smile, I still get the crinkly, crepey wrinkles under my eyes. NOT happy about it. My Doc said he had to leave some skin so the eye could move, and that what's left, can be treated with laser. My question is what risks are associated with this? And how successful are the results?

Treating wrinkles of the lower lid with laser depend 100% on the type of laser used.
The ONLY laser that can improve the wrinkles and crepy skin is Carbon dioxide laser, either (more)
