This new ‘ Plasma’ technology gives great results with no scalpels and no suturing involved. The excess eyelid skin is sublimated using the plasma beam without damage to the basement membrane, muscle or other underlying structures.
Sublimation which is the process of turning a solid straight into a gas so results are instant and there is no heat transferred to surrounding tissues to cause damage to normal skin. The device uses plasma so there is no electric current which can cause problems for some patients and the treatments result in tissue retraction and tightening which gives even better results.
Treatment consists of multiple shots spaced closely together and the upper, lower or both eyelids can be treated. The procedure normally takes less than 45 minutes to perform.
Following treatment, tiny dark brown/black spots may appear or there may be an appearance more typical of a burn. Swelling is common and often lasts several days and can be quite significant around the eyes. The area will often be red and warm immediately after the procedure and can be quite tender for a few days.
Crusting or a scab can develop and it is important to keep this clean, dry and protected. Sometimes the area can be sloughy. If the area becomes red, hot and tender or if there is pus present, it is important to contact the clinic as this may suggest an infection. It is important to allow any spots or scabs to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. Scarring is a rare complication following treatment.
After treatment we advise keeping the treated area clean, dry and protected using a broad spectrum sunscreen. Mineral make-up may be applied. Avoid exposing the area to extremes of heat or cold until it has healed. If any doubt, contact the clinic for further advice.
It is essential to keep the treatment area clean, dry and protected with a broad spectrum sunscreen. Do not use alcohol based cleansers. Do not apply a plaster or an occlusive dressing over the area.
Final results usually depend on severity of skin laxity or size of lesion, the desired result, the general condition of the skin and any pre-existing skin or medical problems.As the treated skin is sublimated, the results often last years or permanently.
Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 3 weeks. 2-3 treatments at 8 weekly intervals are often required to give good results .
