Plasma The Non-Surgical Alternative
Blepharoplasty is the name for the plastic surgery operation used to correct defects of the eyelids. Especially for improving the appearance of the eye region of the face and usually requiring the surgical removal of excess skin and fat. Also, the muscle and tendons tissues may need strengthening. However, the good news is that for those that don’t want surgery there is a non-surgical Blepharoplasty alternative giving instant results.
Non – Surgical Blepharoplasty
Plasma energy treatments have gained a reputation as the best Non-Surgical procedure in the aesthetic industry for skin tightening. Consequently, plasma skin treatments are the primary Non-Surgical alternative for surgery (Blepharoplasty). As a result, the following can now be removed or corrected without surgery:
Upper Eyelid Lift.
Skin Tag Removal.
Loose Skin on the Neck, Jowls, and back of the Hands.
Recovery Time Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty
Unlike surgery, plasma energy treatments don’t require the skin to be cut or removed. Hence the recovery time is considerably less than the surgical option. Accordingly, most patients after 3-5 days will see a reduction in tenderness and swelling. Also, after eight weeks the deeper layers of skin will fully recover as the new collagen forms.
How long will Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty last?
Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effect of plasma treatments is not entirely permanent and doesn’t stop the ageing process. However, the positives results can last for years, depending on the area, patient, and quality of aftercare. After the procedure, all patients are given aftercare instructions if followed these will help to prolong the results of the plasma procedure.
How do plasma treatments (Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty) work?
The fibroblasts are the collagen-producing cells in the skin. The non-surgical blepharoplasty treatment is carried out with a device called a plasma pen, which looks like a pen with a needle protruding out of the end of it. However, the tip of the needle during the treatment never touches the skin it is placed above the treatment area. Subsequently, a tiny plasma flash (electric arc) connects the tip of the pen to the surface of the skin.
The plasma energy removes the old collagen with a process called Sublimation (Evaporation) and stimulates the production of new collagen and hyaluronic acid. Both of these natural substances promote the appearance of healthy skin. Finally, the procedure naturally removes the old skin and encourages the natural production of new skin, while tightening the skin cells.
When do I see the results from Plasma Energy Treatments?
Generally, patients will see immediate results that will improve over a matter of days and weeks. However, results in any treatment are dependant on individual skin types and the treatment areas, including the patient’s ability to follow the aftercare advice.
Are there any risks of Non-surgical Blepharoplasty (Plasma Treatments)?
Unlike surgery, the risks are minimal unless you have a Pacemaker where the plasma energy could interfere with the electrical pulses that help control your hearts rhythm. Finally, pregnant ladies should always avoid the procedure as no studies have concluded if there is a risk or not to mother and baby.
In conclusion, the treatment is suitable for most people over the age of 16, subject to a consultation and patch test.
