Lift Drooping Eyelids With a Plasma Eyelid Lift Treatment
What is a non-surgical eyelid lift treatment?
Plasma treatment offers a safe and cost-effective way of tightening and lifting loose skin around the eyes. It is also referred to as ‘non-surgical blepharoplasty’ and is a popular alternative to eyelid surgery.
How does Plasma treatment work?
It is an ablative device that uses a no-heat no-light energy form, plasma, to stimulate the skin. This treatment is ideal for those with ‘hooded’ upper eyelids who have noticed the skin fold accentuate with age. It can also be used around the under eye area to reduce the fine crinkly lines that are so hard to treat with skin care and cosmetic injections.
Please note: This treatment is only suitable for caucasian skin and 2 – 4 treatments are required for a significant result. Treatments must be at least 8 weeks apart.
What about aftercare?
There is a 5-14 day skin healing period after the treatment. For the first 48 hours you will have swelling in the treatment area. A ‘carbon crust’ will be visible on the skin in the treated are and this will heal and flake for 5-10 days. From day 2 it can be well covered with camouflage make-up (given to you at consultation). During the healing process you can carry on all of your usual activities as long as the area is kept clean and out of the sun.
Plasma treatment changes the skin cells and so does not wear-off the way that other treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections do and results can last 3 years or longer.
