Plasma Eyelid Lift vs Blepharoplasty Surgery
Non-surgical treatments are becoming more advanced, with many people seeking alternative treatments to surgery. .
While a surgical Blepharoplasty will last for around 10 years, it also has a longer downtime and is significantly more expensive.
How Long Does Plasma Results Last?
Following the course of three treatments, the effect should last for as long as a comparable surgical treatment. However, we can’t say the effects are permanent, as it does not halt, nor prevent the ageing process.
You can expect the positive results to last several years if you avoid lifestyle factors that contribute to skin ageing and damage. These include:
- Excess alcohol consumption
- Prolonged sun exposure
Avoiding these lifestyle factors are important in order to benefit fully from your Plasma treatment.
Plasma treatment works by using a voltaic current to ionise natural gases in the air, turning them into plasma.
When applied to the skin, the plasma will create a superficial burn in the area the size of a dot, without affecting the surrounding area. We then repeat these plasma dots across the treatment area and the skin tissue instantly vaporises, this leaves behind a carbon crust on the ‘dots’.
The carbon crust will fall off naturally and you will notice that the skin is much tighter and firmer, with the skin’s natural elasticity restored.
At Laserase Bolton we only allow medical staff to perform the Plasma treatment.
Patients often say that treatment is relatively uncomfortable, depending on your tolerance to pain.
The delivery of the plasma produces a stinging feeling. However, we will apply an anaesthetic cream to numb the area before treatment starts, this will reduce the sensations.
Immediately after treatment, the affected area may feel tender, with slight burning and tingling sensations, but this should only last for a few hours. Later you should expect continued tenderness, redness, swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area, for several days, to a week. Swelling is more common in the area around the eyes.
The points of sublimation are about 1mm in diameter, showing as tiny brown crusts or scabs. These will remain for at least a week before dropping off.
It is important that you leave the crusts to heal naturally without any interference.
This is to prevent scarring, infection or pigmentation abnormalities
You must not scratch or pick the area during healing.
You will need to keep the treated area should dry and clean. You will also need to keep it protected with a UVA/UVB sunscreen until fully healed, to prevent infection.
Here’s what our client’s think…
“I had my first treatment 7 days ago and was pleasantly surprised at how little discomfort I felt. I was nervous when the first needle went in but soon found that this felt no more than a slight prick. The taking of the blood was a quick and easy procedure and as Saria the nurse talked me through the whole process I soon felt relaxed and at ease. After the treatment, my skin was slightly swollen and a purplish red but this went down within 24 hours. After 7 days I feel there is some minor improvement to the lines around my eyes but I am fully aware that the course of treatment needs to be complete and then a further 2 -3 months go by before I am likely to see the full benefits. I can’t wait for my second treatment to get nearer to my goal of reducing my lines and wrinkles especially around my eyes.”
