17. Eliminating dark eye-rings with timedsurgical mixed peeling
Timedsurgical mixed peeling eliminates dark rings from under the eyes, with a single treatment! This esthetic defect is often congenital and familial. Mixed peeling is so called because it is a physic-chemical procedure. Timed apparatus is set to the specific program. The current detaches the epidermis. Once the epidermis has been removed, the pigmented dermis can be seen. Timedsurgical de-epithelialization maintains the integrity of the dermal papillae and the capillary-papillary plexus. This perfect integrity enables the resorcin to be absorbed uniformly. The long-term result of mixed peeling and de-epithelialization of the eyelids is that pigmentation disappears, any vascular ectasias are eliminated and the roughness of the skin is reduced. This technique is also used to eliminate festoons and wrinkles from the lower eyelids and to reduce "crows' feet", in a single treatment.
