Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift

The Problem

Sagging or drooping eyelids are a common sign of ageing which is difficult to avoid. There are surgical options to help improve the appearance of your eyes but for those who wish to avoid surgery, our Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift may be a great option.

Sagging eyelids and eye bags are a typical sign of ageing and unfortunately, there is not a lot we can do to stop them from appearing. The levator muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid and when this begins to stretch, it can cause the skin around the eye to droop.

Our Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift treatment is a new way to help improve the appearance of the loose eyelid skin and puffy eyelids without the downtime and costs from surgery. Patients with mild to moderate loose skin are the best candidates for this treatment, those with more significant drooping may require blepharoplasty treatment instead to get the best results.

The plasma treatment works by stimulating the contraction, shortening and tightening of skin fibres which then results in a tightening of the skin. The Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift treatment is a powerful and effective alternative to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty. This non-surgical treatment is often preferred by patients seeking less invasive procedures with reduced recovery time and none of the complications that can arise before and after surgery.

The non-surgical eye lifts treatment is able to remove the excess eyelid skin and tighten up wrinkles located around the eyes whilst being entirely non-invasive with no need for incisions, scalpels or stitches.

The treatment works best to lift or smooth the appearance of hooded, heavy or double eyelids and also to reduce eye bags and crow’s feet wrinkles.

The Problem

Sagging or drooping eyelids are a common sign of ageing which is difficult to avoid. There are surgical options to help improve the appearance of your eyes but for those who wish to avoid surgery, our Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift may be a great option.

Arriving at the clinic your face will first be cleansed before the local anaesthetic gel is applied to the treatment area. We allow up to an hour for the anaesthetic to take effect before starting plasma treatment. To perform our Handy Plasma non-surgical eyelift we use a Plexr® Plasma Pen device applicator which ionises the gas particles in the air between the device tip and your skin emitting a small electric arc. This creates a substance known as plasma which causes the target tissue to go from being solid to a gas state therefore instantly vaporizing the excess skin and tightening what remains leaving a carbon crust on the area. This process is known as “sublimation”. The plasma applicator is only applied to areas which are to be treated in a specific order and manner.

Plasma as a substance is very precise meaning it will not harm the surrounding skin and the small device head has a needle which never breaks the skin. It only has a 0.3 mm surface area, allowing the treatment to be very exact, delicate and capable of treating around and under the eyes. Immediately after treatment, you will notice small brown patches where the skin has been treated. During the healing phase, your skin will regenerate with more collagen and elastin density; thus giving you younger and tighter skin in place of what was removed.

Handy Plasma Eyelift Results

You will notice an instant tightening of the skin immediately post-treatment however the best results are seen 3 weeks after your last treatment. We recommend 1-2 sessions however, this may vary from patient to patient. If extra sessions are required these would be spaced 4-6 weeks apart

Downtime

Immediately after treatment, you will have small brown patches where you were treated and swelling. The swelling should disappear over 1-3 days but the brown patch known as the carbon crust can take up to 10 days to fully heal however after one week to 14 days this can be covered with make-up. Once the carbon crust has gone, the skin will be a little pink and sensitive so you will need to keep out of the sun and use sun protection.

FAQs

What is Nano Plasma non-surgical eyelift treatment?

Plasma is considered to be a fourth state of matter alongside solid, liquid and gas. It is created when gases in the air are ionised with the assistance of a specialised device which creates a small electrical arc to treat the problem areas without spreading any heat to surrounding areas of the skin.

How does Nano Plasma non-surgical eyelift treatment work?

As the specialised device is activated, it ionises gas particles in the air that are located between the tip of the device and your skin. This creates plasma which will then touch the surface of the skin causing the skin tissue to go from solid to gas which is known as sublimation. This causes an instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres resulting in skin that is lifted, remodelled and rejuvenated

Is Nano Plasma non-surgical eyelift better than Blepharoplasty surgery?

Blepharoplasty surgery is really effective at correcting the appearance of loose eyelid skin, eye bags and puffy eyelids in moderate to severe cases. Often classed as the gold standard treatment it is highly recommended for patients who want impressive results that will last for years to come after a few weeks of downtime.

Nano Plasma non-surgical eyelift is a soft surgical treatment that is a new way of tightening loose skin. It is an impressive alternative to surgery allowing for a more gentle correction of mild to moderate loose skin. There is minimal downtime and no scarring but some patients may require 2 to 3 sessions.

Which treatment is better would depend on the results you expect to achieve, the amount of time you wish to spend on having the treatment and how much downtime you can afford.

Can I wear make-up after Nano Plasma non-surgical eyelift treatment?

As always, take care to only apply make-up with a clean device and to carefully remove it without excessively rubbing the treated area.

Sun protection must also be worn over the area during this time.
