Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)
Non-surgical blepharoplasty (an eye lift) can help reduce the signs of overhanging eyelids without using scalpels or lasers.
At Skin Philosophy we use Plasma treatment which uses the ionisation of gases in the air, forming plasma. This unique process creates a small electrical arc that can effectively target specific areas by spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas; meaning the skin on your eyelid can be sublimated without damaging the basement membrane, muscle or other underlying structures.
A typical treatment will last 30 minutes, and whilst results will be seen instantly – the best effects won’t be seen for another 3 weeks.
We would recommend a course of 3 treatments at 6 week intervals, as over time this can have a permanent effect.
Swelling is common and can be quite significant around the eyes, usually worse the morning following the treatment and can last for several days. The area may be tender as it is healing and may scab over or become a little flaky. It is important to not pick at any spots or scabs and allow them to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur.
