Will Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Damage Infraorbital Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Quick question, I’m considering to have a skin rejuvenation procedure done with CO 2 laser or something similar, I’m wondering, will these risk damaging my infraorbital implant if used on the tissue that lies above?

A: Thanks for the long term followup. In terms of the IOM Implants they are down at the bone level while any form of skin rejuvenation affects only the skin/dermis. No significant heat or tissue damaging effects can get that deep. In addition the implants are structurally stable up to 190 degrees Celsius before they will melt so I believe they will be OK!
