Is it possible to tighten loose skin around the eyes without surgery?

Closed, sad, tired eyes… sagging eyelids significantly affect the perception of our face and its expressions. While blepharoplasty is considered the surgical procedure of choice for treating eyelid ptosis (sagging), there is now an excellent non-invasive option for patients with milder sagging or who are not ready to undergo surgery: Plasma Lift.

What is Plasma Lift?

The Plasma Pen Plexr uses radio frequency technology to firm and rejuvenate the skin. The pen-shaped device produces controlled energy that, upon contact with the skin, triggers a visible tightening and smoothing effect. The treatment is effective wherever there is a problem of skin laxity. The most commonly treated areas are the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, frown lines, crow’s feet and neck fine lines. Beyond the remarkable effects, the benefits associated with this technology are significant: the recovery is fast, the treatment does not require social eviction and it leaves no scars.

 

How does the treatment work?

An anesthetic cream is first applied to the treated area to minimize discomfort. The pen is precisely oriented to make several small dots, a few millimeters apart, on the surface of the eyelid. This step takes about 10 minutes per side. Once the treatment is completed, the skin appears red and swollen for 48 to 72 hours. A special care protocol is prescribed to optimize healing.

 

The tightening effect is immediate, but it is necessary to wait a few weeks before seeing the full results. Each session allows a retraction of about 2 mm of skin. Two to three sessions, spaced four weeks apart, are typically recommended. The effects of Plasma Lift are long lasting, but do not prevent subsequent natural sagging. Periodic maintenance over the years are required to help maintain the results over time.
