What is Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
Non-surgical blepharoplasty involves using the Nano Plasma device to remove the excess skin and tighten the area, without the need for surgery. Nano Plasma uses plasma (known as the fourth state of matter) which is formed through the ionisation of atmospheric gases. The plasma device creates a tiny beam that, when it hits the skin, causes immediate sublimation of the skin in that area – in other words, it turns the skin cells from their solid state into a gas.
When applied to excess skin, the plasma energy has an immediate effect, literally vaporising it away while visibly tightening the remaining skin tissue.
The treatment is performed without the need for a general anaesthetic, or cutting or suturing of the eyelids, and it leaves no scars afterwards.
The procedure offers similar results as traditional blepharoplasty surgery, but with quicker recovery and avoiding many of the significant risks associated with surgery.
What are the benefits of Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
The Nano Plasma tightens the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves tone and texture. Nano Plasma is an effective treatment for individuals with excess skin on upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and photodamaged skin. This treatment can be performed on any skin types. This procedure does not involve cutting the skin or stitches meaning a faster healing time. It is a great option for individuals not ready for eyelid surgery or for those who are not suitable for a surgical blepharoplasty.
What is involved in Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
Before you have a Nano Plasma treatment, we will assess the degree of laxity and amount of skin that needs to be removed to achieve the best results.
We apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area and we leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes.
When the skin is numb, we start the treatment using the Nano Plasma device. The sublimation process causes the immediate contraction of the skin in the treated area. We are not touching the skin with the device and not causing a burn to the skin. The marks left after the treatment are called carbon crust.
With each treatment, we carefully and precisely remove only the excess skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin unaffected.
Depending on the amount of skin laxity, you may need a course of 1 to 3 sessions to achieve a full correction.
What are the risks or potential side effects of Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
Compared to conventional surgical blepharoplasty – which carries significant risk of scarring, eyelid dysfunction (from too much skin removed) Nano Plasma treatment has been shown to be very safe and equally effective.
The immediate side effects following the treatment will be swelling and crusting of the treated area. Swelling can be even more significant when treating the upper and lower eye area. This is entirely normal and will subsides in a few days. The crusting is also a very important part of the healing phase and recovery. The crust can last between 5 to 7 days. Your practitioner will go through the aftercare with you and you will receive an aftercare pack to go home with.
What aftercare is required for Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
This will be explained in details by your practitioner. The aftercare consists of leaving the crust intact for 3 days following the treatment. We do not recommend to apply any ointment for a few hours after the treatment. Sunscreen is very important to avoid pigmentation as well as avoiding the sun during the healing phase of the treated area. Sleeping with an extra pillow at night can also help to reduce puffiness and swelling around the eyes. You should wash the skin only using your hands and water, and no clothes or gloves.
Once the crust falls off (3 to 7 days) the skin will pink until complete healing. A specific ointment recommended by your practitioner will then be advised.
What is the cost of Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
Treatment costs from £600 for upper or lower eyes, per treatment.
