What is Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty and how does it work?

If you suffer with droopy eyelids or excessive skin around the eyes, you are likely familiar with the inconvenience, and undesirable effects upon one’s physical appearance, that these afflictions can cause. But now is the time to rejoice, as Skin Doctor Clinics is happy to announce that there now exists a non-invasive treatment that effectively combats these ailments. Allow us to introduce the Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty; a revolutionary new method of removing and tightening excess eyelid skin that grants less obstructed vision and a more youthful appearance.


Who is Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty for?


Unfortunately, as we age, our upper and lower eyelids often droop and become baggy. The skin around our eyelids stretches, our muscles weaken and fat pockets become more noticeable as they begin to bulge. The unfortunate consequence is that you look older and tired, and this can harm your overall appearance. Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty is the ideal treatment for those wishing to combat these unfortunate effects.


How does Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty work?


At Skin Doctor Clinics, our non-surgical treatment is conducted using the latest JETT PLASMA technology, which uses plasma to stimulate and contract the skin, causing tightening and lifting. Plasma is a gas composed of ions and electrons, which is formed through the ionization of atmospheric gases. The flow of the plasma energy from the JETT PLASMA hand piece creates a reaction in your tissues that encourages new collagen formation, stimulates elastin fibers, and reduces and smoothes wrinkled skin. These processes are essential to firmer, more youthful looking skin.


Are there any side effects or possible complications to Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?


In addition to the fantastic results that it achieves, the best thing about Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty is that it is non-invasive and does not require cutting, injections, burning, or the removal of any skin or tissue. Treatment is painless, and a local anesthetic, used before the procedure, will ensure that any discomfort is kept to a minimum. Some minor side effects are to be expected: you may experience some swelling or redness in the treatment area but this will usually resolve itself in 2-3 days. You may also find some crusting but this will fall away naturally over the course of a week. Ultimately, the risk of complications from Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty is low – no cutting or stitches are required, and there exists no risk of blindness as there does with surgery. The procedure is also quick and requires very little recovery time. In fact, most patients are able to return to work the very same day.


After treatment you can expect to see tighter looking skin around the eyes, as well as a more youthful appearance. Results are noticeable virtually instantly and can be expected to improve over a 2-4 week period. If required, JETT PLASMA can also be used to treat other areas of the skin suffering from wrinkles, such as the face, the thighs or the décolletage.
