Is 30 Too Young to Get CO2 Laser Resurfacing Under Your Eyes?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is great for your entire face, but especially under your eyes. This is because the laser uses shorter beams, ideal for the thinner skin in the undereye area. And if you are like most, this is also one of the first places you’ve started to see lines and wrinkles. 

Is 30 Too Young for Eye Treatments?

30 is by no means old. However, a lot of people start picking up on the finest of lines around their eyes in their late 20s. Thanks to heavy screen usage and eye strain, the undereye area is aging faster for most Millennials. Add to that the fact that there are just naturally fewer collagen and elastin fibers in this area, you might be tempted to get a little lasering right around your 30th birthday.

But is that jumping the gun a bit?

In our estimate, no. CO2 laser resurfacing under the eyes is a nonsurgical procedure with minimal recovery afterward. While it can make a big difference in your appearance, it isn’t invasive or difficult in the way surgery is. 

In fact, we consider it to be a great part of a standard prejuvenation routine — where you work to prevent signs of aging from developing rather than responding to them once they are already present. 

A big benefit to this laser is that it doesn’t just take away the outermost layer of skin; it encourages the body to create more collagen and elastin fibers in the area. In this manner, it encourages a youthful appearance from the inside out — no injectables required.
