Dr Oz: The Fix Plastic Surgery: Asclera, Festoons & Eye Bags


Dr Oz did a segment called The Fix: Plastic Surgery to talk about some of the most revolutionary plastic surgery procedures for eliminating under-eye bags, spider veins and years of sun damage.  Doctor Oz was joined by Dr Adam Scheiner who did a Festoon Laser Treatment and an Under-Eye Bag Laser Treatment, as well as Dr Anne Chapas who did an Asclera Spider Vein Laser Treatment.

Dr Oz: Eye Bag Laser Treatment

Dr Oz found a lady named Donna who has very bad Under-Eye Bags.  She has tried makeup, concealer, anti-histamines, cucumbers, tea bags, caffeine and every cream on the market.  Dr Oz Spider Vein ProcedureBut it just keeps getting worse over time.  She does not like to look in the mirror because her Eye Bags dominate everything.  Donna also has Festoons, which are not caused by poor diet or a lack of exercise.  Festoons are mainly caused by sun exposure.  A Festoon is a swollen mound that forms on your cheek right under your Lower Eye Bag.

Dr Oz: Festoon Laser Treatment

Dr Oz asked Dr Adam Scheiner what makes him so passionate about the Festoon Laser Treatment? He loves that his patients end up without baggy skin and appear smoothed out so that people do not think they always look tired.  Dr Oz said that Eye Bags run in his family, so he is especially interested in this topic.  He asked Dr Scheiner what makes the Festoon Laser Treatment so unique?  He said that before this there were no great treatments for Festoons, and they would just stretch the skin out to try to make it look better.  With the Festoon Laser Treatment, it is like pushing a reset button and creating brand new skin.

Dr Oz & Dr Adam Scheiner

Dr Adam Scheiner did a demonstration with the laser and an avocado to show what happens during the Eye Bag Laser Treatment.  The laser takes off the top layer of the avocado and the color started to change and the skin looked a bit more smooth.  Then, Dr Scheiner went through to the middle layer of skin to get to the deep layer of skin which is a lime green color in an avocado.  This is where your skin will create new elastic collagen fibers.  From this point, a person will grown new skin all over again from the bottom layer up.

    Very nice show. These procedures have been around for sometime, its just that the public has not seen them on this type of show. We have compounded polidocanol “Asclera” before it was FDA approved in March of 2010 and have used it as a sclerosant for over 10 years.
    The Festoon treatments for undereye bags and lax skin has great results with the CO2 fractional laser. We use SmartXide DOT and get great results in facial tightening and resurfacing of photodamaged skin. This last patient you featured with the “Solta Dual Laser Treatments” has been around awhile. It is the old Fraxel Erbium larser 1550nm wavelength with the addition of 1927 nm Thulium wavelength. Both are non ablative and what was not mentioned is that it will require 1 treatment every 4 weeks for 4 treatments. This is fine with clearing photodamaged and pigmented skin but does little for skin tightening and wrinkles as this patient had. She really would have had better results with fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and set her clock back by 10-15 years.

    I am very interested in this procedure as I have large bags under my eyes due to Graves Disease that plastic surgeons have told me the only way to get rid of them is by going under the knife. I do not want to do that and this sounds like a great alternative if it would actually work in my circumstances.

    Please advise if there are any plastic surgeons in the Houston area, Texas that are currently doing this procedure. My zip code is 77077.
