What is Plasma Eye Lift?
Plasma Eye Lift is the non-surgical answer to to a Surgical Blepharoplasty, used to tighten and lift the upper and/or lower eyelids while minimising the risk and downtime associated with surgery or a Co2 laser treatment. The HD Lipo Freeze Plasma Spark Pen (pictured below) is the latest in German innovation and allows u to achieve such spectacular results.
Our Plasma Eye Lift treatment is the only one of its kind in Lancashire and is exclusive at Reminisce Clinic in Leyland, Preston.
Plasma Eye Lifts are able to be much more selective than our HIFU treatment as the treatment areas are pinpointed with the 0.3mm needle surface area, reducing the risk associated with a traditional laser treatment.
The needle-like tip of the Plasma Spark Pen used never penetrates the skin, instead causing a controlled superficial burn that restores the skin to its more natural elasticity.
It works as a permanent solution to skin drooping over the eyes, with patients seeing results from as little as 1 -2 treatments.*
*Results may vary from person to person. More sessions may be required for some.
But how does Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty work?
The Plasma Eye Lift creates an electrical current, ionising the natural gases in the air and turning them into plasma. ‘Plasma’ is the name given to this spark created by the natural gasses. The plasma will manufacture a tiny superficial burn or ‘dot’ when the tip of the Plasma Spark Pen is placed close to the skin and we repeat this process of using plasma to create these ‘dots’. The skin tissue then vaporises immediately, leaving a small carbon crust on the area.
Eventually, the carbon crust naturally falls off leaving the skin much tighter and firmer.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment and while the skin heals in the first two weeks, results can continue to be seen to improve. Shortly after, with the gradual regeneration of the skin, even further improvement will be visible.
Immediately after the treatment, you will experience slight discomfort and irritation for a few hours. Commonly, the area will swell but will subside after 1-3 days*. Please keep the area clean and dry using warm water and in addition, a cold compress can be used to reduce swelling.
In many cases, patients have used a broad-spectrum sunscreen for up to 6 weeks following treatment, which aids in avoiding direct sunlight and sunbeds throughout the healing process. Do not cover the area with make-up or mascara until it has fully healed, usually after 3-5 days.
After 3-5 days, the crusts will flake off which may tempt you to scratch at the scabs. Do not do this. Let these crusts leave the face naturally, otherwise this could possibly lead to an infection and at worst scarring.
In rarer cases, blistering can appear however do not panic, this is all part of the healing and why we keep the area dry and clean. Once the skin has healed, new skin tissue will appear that is pink in colour. Gradually, this area of skin will return to its original colour.
If you have any questions following the treatment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of staff at our Leyland, Lancashire premises and we’ll be happy to help!
*Generally swelling will subside in 1-3 days but this can vary from person to person.
