Eye Lift (Non surgical blepharoplasty)
The non surgical eye lift offered by Teesside Fat Freezing is performed using a plasma pen. This treatment is also known as “fibroblast”. Skin cells are called fibroblasts, and a plasma pen treatment causes skin cells to proliferate and rejuvenate the treated area, hence the alternative name.
What does the treatment involve?
The skin is tightened using a series of tiny burns that provide an initial tightening of the skin, together with an extended period (6-8 weeks) of skin renewal. A local anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated beforehand to minimise any discomfort. Afterwards, you will be left with a series of tiny burns on the eyelid, which form crusts or scabs after about 2 to 3 days. These crusts fall off after around 5-7 days, at which time you are free to wear makeup to cover any remaining redness whilst the area heals.
Why plasma pen?
The majority of non-surgical skin lifting and tightening procedures cannot be used around the orbit of the eye due to safety concerns. Plasma Pen is the exception – because only the very top surface of the skin – the epidermis – is targeted, the treatment can safely be carried out on the thin, sensitive skin around the eye. Both upper eye lifts and lower eye lifts can be performed. Note that the eyes usually swell on days 2-3 after treatment. For this reason, I will not do both an upper and a lower eye lift at the same time as this could double the amount of swelling. I also will not perform a plasma pen eyelift on a client wearing false eyelashes / extensions of any description as it is not safe to do so.
Does it really work?
Yes, the before and after photo below shows the result on my own eye. Anyone who knows me, knows that I only perform treatments that I have tried out on myself (or my long suffering husband) first and that are backed up by photographic evidence and clinical evidence of their efficacy.
Who will benefit from the treatment?
Anyone who has loose skin around their eyes. If there is a lot of loose skin, sometimes more than one treatment is needed to get the desired effects.
Who should not have the treatment?
Anyone with impaired healing, such as someone with severe diabetes, is not a suitable candidate. Also this treatment is only suitable for light skinned people – people with darker skin are more likely to hyperpigment – that is, develop small dark marks after treatment. This is not an exhaustive list and a full consultation will be carried out before treatment to make sure that this is the right option for you.
What can’t it do?
Whilst the treatment is great at tightening loose skin anywhere (it can be used all over the face and body) it cannot treat underlying fat. So if the bags under your eyes are caused by fat pads as opposed to loose skin, it will not be able to address that particular issue.
How long does it last?
The treatment is long lasting. You will just start to age again from the moment the healing ends, but this is a slow process, it doesn’t just wear off. I call it “putting a loop in the timeline” – when the effects have finally worn off, your eyes will still look younger than they would have looked if you’d never had the treatment. The results of the treatment are likely to last longer on younger skin, and for less time on older skin, although there is no limit to the number of treatments you can have, provided you allow the area to fully heal in between treatments.
How much does it cost?
