The Plasma Pen Eyelid Lift – Everything You Want to Know
Whether it is a result of aging or heredity, sagging eyelids can add years to your appearance, make you self-conscious, and even interfere with your vision. One solution is blepharoplasty, which surgically removes excess skin from the eyelids, but what if you aren’t thrilled with the idea of going under the knife? There is an alternative – the Plasma Pen eyelid lift. This non-surgical procedure can improve the appearance of sagging eyelids and reduce the impact on your vision.
What is a Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen emits a high-frequency, ionized gas (plasma) that quickly heats the skin’s surface. The heat creates tiny “microscopic wounds” in the targeted area. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin help to tighten and lift the skin.
Plasma pen treatments are often referred to as “fractional” because only a fraction of the skin is treated during each session. This helps to minimize side effects and downtime. Plasma Pen treatments can be performed on small areas, such as around the eyes, or on larger areas, such as the face, neck, and chest.
Plasma pen treatments are safe for all skin types and for people of all ages. They can also be performed on people who have had previous surgical procedures, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty.
What to Expect During a Plasma Pen Eyelid Lift
During a Plasma Pen session, the treatment area is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied. The numbing cream will help to minimize discomfort during treatment. Once the area is numb, the Plasma Pen is used to deliver the plasma pulses. Each pulse lasts for only a fraction of a second. Most people report feeling a mild “tingling” sensation during the treatment.
Plasma pen treatments are typically performed in a series of sessions. The number of sessions will depend on the area being treated, the severity of the condition, and the desired results. Treatments can be performed every 4-6 weeks.
Plasma Pen Results
A Plasma Pen eye lift can provide noticeable results after just one session. However, most people will need a series of treatments to achieve their desired results. Plasma Pen treatments can continue to improve for up to 6 months after the last treatment and can provide long-lasting results.
In addition to reducing the appearance of sagging eyelids, Plasma Pen treatments also can help to improve the appearance of:
- Sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose skin
- Crow’s feet
- Under eye bags
Benefits of a Plasma Pen Eyelid Lift
A Plasma Pen eyelid lift is a great alternative to a traditional eye lift. It uses plasma energy to tighten and lift the skin around the eyes, resulting in a more youthful appearance. There are many benefits to choosing a Plasma Pen eye lift over a surgical eyelift, including:
- Minimally invasive – With the Plasma Pen, there is no need for large incisions or stitches.
- Non-surgical – Because the Plasma Pen is not a surgical procedure, there is no need for anesthesia or recovery time. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
- Safe – The Plasma Pen has been cleared by the FDA for use in the United States.
- Effective – The Plasma Pen has been shown to be effective in clinical studies.
- Affordable – The Plasma Pen eye lift is typically less expensive than traditional eyelid lifts.
