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 Procedure
  • Aftercare

Handy Plasma Non-Surgical Eyelift Treatment

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.

After Your Non-Surgical Eyelift Treatment

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

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

  • 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.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
