I had a laser treatment on my face two year ago. I feel that my eyelids have become significantly more hollow since. Is it possible that the laser treatment caused fat loss around my eyes?Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011
Although it has yet to be proven that certain laser treatments can accelerate facial volume loss, anecdotal evidence shows that especially around delicate thin skin such as around the eyes and temples lasers might accelerate facial volume loss. It is normal to lose facial fat with the normal aging process so it would be hard to tell what is truly causing the facial volume lose or the loss of fat round your eyes. Unless there is a controlled trial where a laser was only used on one half of the face we might never know!
People with orbital fat loss or hollowing around the eyes usually state that their eyes actually look better when they wake up in the morning and they are puffy. As the day progressed they state that they eyes look worse and more tired and hollow.
It is possible to address this orbital volume loss and hollowness with injections of either fat or fillers.
