If dark rings under your eyes and loose, drooping skin in the eyelids are compromising your facial appearance, you may be a good candidate for a Madonna Lift (also called a "fractional eyelift"). Our experienced New York City dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz has pioneered this new procedure using the latest fractional laser resurfacing technology, which is safe and effective with minimal downtime.

How Does the Madonna Lift Work?
During a Madonna Lift, the fractional laser beam is broken into microscopic columns of light. When these beams strike the surface of your skin, they remove old, damaged elastic fibers and collagen so fresh new tissue can grow into these channels. Since only a "fraction" of your skin is affected, healing is quick and virtually painless.
Wrinkles and pigmentation are eliminated during a Madonna Lift, and the skin is tightened. A study of over 300 patients showed consistent, satisfying results from the fractional eyelift – including reduced dark circles, elimination of eye wrinkles, and tighter eyelid skin.
A Madonna Lift has many of the same benefits of a surgical eyelift, without the risks and downtime. Best of all, because it stimulates new collagen production, results are expected to last for several years. However, since the technology is so recent, it is difficult to say for sure how long results might last.
Candidates for the Madonna Lift
If you have any of the following cosmetic problems, a Madonna Lift may be right for you:
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow's feet
- Dark circles
- Drooping eyebrows
The fractional laser works very well on darker skin in most cases. However, to be safe, we will perform a test spot on the eyelid area to ensure there is no change in pigmentation. The only issue that a Madonna Lift cannot address is bulging fat pads in the eye area.
In order to be a good Madonna Lift candidate, you should also have realistic expectations about the procedure. On average, most people need between 3-5 sessions (spaced apart at 2-3 week intervals) in order to achieve the best results.
