How is non-surgical eyelid aesthetics done?
Plasma energy is applied in non-surgical eyelid aesthetics. When the needle on the plasma energy generating device is brought close to the skin (no need for skin contact), the gaseous water vapor and nitrogen in the application area turn into plasma energy with high energy. This energy evaporates the lesion or excess skin on the skin and destroys the problematic tissues, and the skin enters the healing process again. As a result, excess skin is removed and the skin is refreshed with the effect of re-healing. Both sagging and wrinkles can be treated with plasma energy without surgery. In addition to plasma energy, methods such as HIFU (focused high intensity sound wave) and gold needle are also effective.
Non-surgical eyelid aesthetics application areas
Plasma energy is applied in different areas except eyelid sagging. These can be listed as follows:
- Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Lines and wrinkles on the lip and in front of the ear
- Active acne and acne scars
- Raised skin lesions (moles, warts)
- Spots (sun and age spots)
- Puberty and postpartum stretch marks
- Wound and surgical incision scars
- Wrinkles and sagging around the neck and abdomen
How long does the process take?
The application should be made by the physician in a sterile environment. A single session is usually sufficient for non-surgical eyelid aesthetics without a surgical procedure. The procedure is applied 30 minutes after local anesthesia is applied with cream or needle. Although it depends on the person, the process takes an average of 10-15 minutes. If there is intense sagging, the procedure can be repeated one month later . The duration of the application, like surgery, is approximately 2-5 years. It is an application that can be repeated as long as no anesthesia problem is encountered.
For the spots around the eyes …
Meat moles and benign formations on the eyelid can be removed with plasma energy. If the spots are superficial sunspots, they can be treated. Mesotherapy and filling application is applied for complaints of general darkness and bruising around the eyes.
Is there an age limit for non-surgical eyelid aesthetics?
Plasma energy and other procedures are preferred by people who do not want to take the risk of surgery, especially at a young age. Although it depends on the person, the age range of 40-60 is suitable for treatment. However, the physician should evaluate. Eyelid surgery is more suitable for elderly people who have severe sagging problems. If the person does not want surgery, the second option is non-surgical eyelid aesthetics. Plasma energy is the first choice at an early age. Non-surgical eyelid aesthetics can be applied in all seasons, except in very hot months such as July and August.
After non-surgical eyelid aesthetics
Edema and crusting are seen in the first 3-4 days after non-operative eyelid surgery. However, dressing is not required. Eyes do not need to be closed. It takes 10 days for the skin to regenerate with the shells removed. In the meantime, sunscreen with a covering feature should be used and sunglasses should be worn outside. Appropriate creams should be applied as recommended by the physician and the face should be washed frequently. The face can be washed the morning after the procedure. People may feel some pain. Some people may experience non-permanent redness and spots. In such cases, appropriate treatments are applied. After the non-surgical eyelid aesthetics, there is no scar and an unnatural appearance .
