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. But 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.
