Non Surgical Eye Lift and Skin Tightening

Non-Surgical-Eye-Lift-and-Skin-Tightening
At The Youth Elixir Cosmetic Clinic, we use the Plasmawave device for non-surgical eye lift and skin tightening. This device creates a genuine plasma output to cause controlled targeted thermal injury. The heat from the plasma causes instant contraction and tightening of the dermal collagen which activates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Since the plasma energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the final result is a lifted contour, improved firmness and a decrease in fine and deep wrinkles.
Before the treatment we apply a strong numbing cream for 30-45 minutes over the area to be treated. During the procedure a slight heat sensation and mild discomfort may be experienced. Following the procedure, small black or brown carbon crusts on the treated area of skin will be present. After the treatment some swelling may be present, which should start to settle in 72 hours. The carbon crusts on the skin will normally start disappearing from 7 to 10 days. During this time the treated area cannot be touched or scratched, as it may cause skin discolouration or infection. Areas we can treat using the Plasmawave include the following:
  • Upper eyelids
  • Lower eyelids
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Smokers Lines
  • Nasolabial Lines
  • Neck

Results are visible from about 6-8 weeks as the skin takes time to produce new collagen. The amount of sessions needed varies from patient to patient and their individual concerns. We typically recommend 2-3 sessions per area. The effect of the procedure is considered to be long-term; however, the ageing process continues and another treatment may be considered in 18-24 months for maintenance.
