The Madonna Lift (Fractional Eye Lift) in NYC

If dark rings under your eyes and loose, drooping skin in the eyelids are compromising your facial appearance, the Madonna lift may be an excellent option for you. Our world-renowned NYC dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz pioneered this procedure using the latest fractional laser resurfacing technology, which is safe and effective, with minimal downtime.

What is a Madonna lift?

The Madonna lift or “fractional eye lift” is a non-surgical laser procedure performed on the skin around the eye. It has been designed to soften fine lines and wrinkles and lift the eyebrow to achieve a rejuvenated, younger appearance. This procedure is non-invasive, which makes the downtime and recovery much less time-consuming than it is with a surgical eye lift.

The Madonna lift can improve:

  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Crow’s feet
  • Loose skin on the eyelids
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Drooping eyebrows

How the Madonna lift works

The Madonna lift uses a fractional laser beam that is broken into microscopic columns of light. When these beams strike the surface of the skin, they remove old, damaged elastic fibers and collagen, allowing healthy new tissue to grow into these channels. Since only a “fraction” of your skin is affected, healing is quick and virtually painless. On average, most patients require between 3 to 5 sessions scheduled at 2 to 3 week intervals to achieve optimal results.

What can a Madonna lift accomplish?

Wrinkles and pigmentation are eliminated from the skin during a Madonna lift, and the skin is also tightened. A study of over 300 patients showed consistent, satisfying results from the fractional eyelift. This included reduced dark circles, elimination of eye wrinkles, and tighter eyelid skin.

A Madonna lift has many of the same benefits of a surgical eyelift, but without the risks and downtime. And because it stimulates new collagen production, results are expected to last for several years.

Madonna lift treatment details

Before your procedure, the skin around your eyes will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied to help with any discomfort. Once you are adequately numbed, the topical will be removed and eye shields will be placed over your eyes. If your eyelids are being treated, an intraocular eye shield will be placed on your eyeball (like a contact lens). The treatment takes about three minutes per eye, and your skin will be lifted and tightened with every pass of the laser, giving your skin a radiant glow. Most patients need 2 to 5 treatments to achieve the best results.

Recovery and results

The recovery process will be different for everyone. You may experience slight discomfort and some redness in the area for a few hours following the treatment, but you should be completely recovered within one day. Collagen production will continue in your eyelids and eyes.

Because of this, you will see improvement for up to six months after your treatment. If you take good care of your skin (being careful of sun exposure; moisturizing; maintaining a strong skincare regimen, etc.), the results from a Madonna lift can last for several years.

Candidates for the Madonna lift

If you’re in NYC and are considering an eye lift, the Madonna lift may be perfect for you. The best candidates for this procedure are those who are interested in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes; dark circles; drooping eyebrows, and loose skin on their eyelids. However, the Madonna lift is not a good option for those who have bulging fat pads in the eye area. The fractional laser works very well on darker skin in most cases; however, to be sure and safe, we will perform a test spot on the eyelid area to ensure there is no change in pigmentation.
