I’ve been performing anterior microblepharoexfoliation procedures since 2015 utilizing different machines. With rotational exfoliation, some patients with laxity of lids, dermatochalasis, or other anterior segment issues can have increased discomfort during the procedure with devices that only rotate in a singular direction, depending on rotational angle and direction. I have been very pleased with the ability of the AB Max to get the job done while increasing patient comfort by selecting the most comfortable rotational setting based on each patient’s presentation, position, and lid condition. Having both clockwise and counterclockwise settings provides greater treatment flexibility while the pulse setting lets me hone in on particularly difficult areas with a third option.
