As we age, our collagen levels deplete and when this happens our skin begins to lose its youthful plumpness. For a lot of people in their 40s, nowhere is this more apparent than under and above the eyelids. Skin ageing can take the form of dark circles under the eyes at first, but may develop into excess skin that forms pockets or folds above or below the eyelids. When excess skin gathers in these areas, it can make your eyes appear tired and aged. For years, people with prominently sagging skin above or bellow their eyelids have turned to a surgical blepharoplasty to correct this, but now it’s no longer necessary to embark on a such a serious medical procedure; one which requires incisions and downtime. Now, it’s now entirely possible to have a non-invasive and non-surgical blepharoplasty using advanced plasma technology.
Introducing: the non-surgical blepharoplasty!
A non-surgical blepharoplasty will restore a more youthful definition to the eye area and rejuvenate your face by making you look more rested. Also known as eyelid tightening, you’ll have a much more even skin contour on your face, which will look entirely natural and can make you appear years younger.
What does a non-surgical blepharoplasty involve?
The non-surgical blepharoplasty uses advanced plasma technology in a simple handheld device. The tip of the plasma device charges the air between itself and the skin. It then ‘zaps’ the skin with a little burst of plasma energy, causing sublimation of the fat cells and excessive skin. Sublimation turns the targeted cells from solid straight into gas, essentially permanently removing those problematic and sagging areas of skin.
Because each ‘zap’ only treats the immediate area beneath the pen, the energy doesn’t travel through the skin or your membrane. This makes it incredibly safe to use around sensitive areas such as the eyes, because there is no run-off or risk of the plasma energy penetrating your skin outside of the treatment area. Multiple little ‘zaps’ are needed during one treatment session, with the result being safe eyelid rejuvenation and skin tightening. Your skin tightening and lifting results are immediately visible, though they continue to better themselves and develop over the next 2-4 weeks!
The benefits of a non-surgical blepharoplasty
Any surgical operation that requires you to have an anaesthetic carries a level of risk to your health. As incisions will be made, scarring will be inevitable, and the price is often very high. Many people are choosing to avoid invasive surgery like this in favour of non-surgical methods. Surgery comes accompanied with lengthy downtime, risks, and complicated aftercare, but plasma skin tightening comes with only minor considerations. We know which we’d prefer!
